We stayed here for 3 nights. We had a garden room that also had views of 2 of the pyramids so we had the view and quiet surroundings. The Italian restaurant was excellent. The room was very clean and everything worked as it should except for one bedside light. When we mentioned this they sent an electrician to fix it...

The hotel is honestly a goldmine for what you pay to stay there (I paid $65 USD per day). It is as eye-pleasing a hotel as any in the area and the rooms are definitely more beautiful then what you would expect for the price. I was there for four nights and my only complaint was that the rooftop restaurant...

We chose to stay here over the Hilton as we wanted to stay close to the Pyramids of Giza and stay in a suite. The staff were kind and friendly and took great care of us.

Had a great stay at Le Sphinx. Very easy to get to the sites of Giza and Saqqarra / Dahshur and few tourists about (so no crowds getting inside the pyramids too). Thanks too to the chief concierge Mr Khattab with advice for exploring the city and tackling the metro service.

Hotels throughout Egypt have been severely underbooked since the Revolution, so they're making up the difference by a combination of cutting back on renovations, lowering rates, and reducing or charging more for certain services. Here, the room wasn't properly cleaned when we got there, but they very apologetically cleaned it when I brought it to their attention. Despite being in...
