The location of the guest house was perfect for me. I chose a room with a view and was VERY pleased that I was looking directly at the Sphinx and pyramids. The guest house is family owned and the hosts are very accommodating and helpful. Mamoot (sp) was especially helpful as was the other family members. As I was waiting...

I stayed here for 3 nights as a solo traveler after I finished a tour of Egypt to do some extra sight seeing and I am so happy I did! My room clean and comfortable with a great view of the pyramids and the lady who runs the house with her family and extended family was amazing. They greeted me...

Our stay at The Guardian Guest house was very warm and welcoming, the staff and owners met all of our needs without question or hesitation. Clean rooms and bathrooms, a super great included breakfast to start your day before your tour and a great rooftop view of the pyramid light show. Gift shop just right next door with the best...

This was my third visit to Egypt and my third stay at Guardian Guest House. Located very close (across the street) from the pedestrian entrance to the Giza Necropolis, the guesthouse is a welcoming refuge after a day of exploring the sites. They offer free and strong wifi, a spectacular rooftop (and rooms) with an unmatched view. Free coffee, tea,...

This place was great because of its views, its price and friendly owners. They had a nice breakfast in the mornings and had wonderful prices in their gift shop as well, which had a number of things to choose from. We had the pyramid view room, which for me was mindblowing to wake up and be able to look over...

I had a 20 hour layover in Cairo and I wanted to revisit the pyramids. This was the perfect place to stay. You can't beat the location -- directly across from the Sphinx and the pyramids. Amazing view and you can enjoy the sound and light show from the rooftop terrace. My room was basic, clean and spacious. Staff goes...

This is a basic hotel but in the very best location in Giza. Waking up to the view of the Sphinx guarding the Great Pyramids in the morning was priceless, so are the views from the rooftop (OMG!). Whether morning or night, you'll get an unobstructed view of the pyramids and endless horizon. Hotel is also literally a stone's throw...

Hands down this is the best place i have ever stayed. Staff is so humble and friendly that it kind of makes you feel uneasy - LOL. Hajira (mother of Mohammad Fayed, the guy who runs the hotel) is just like the motherly figure back home, always around and making sure you are comfortable and you are eating well etc....

If you want a simple hotel with the warm touches of family-style service (Mrs. Fayed and her staff) PLUS the world's most stunning and memorable view, this is the place for you. If you want posh, it's not. Some aspects that I loved were the donkeys, horses and camels trotting on the street in front, and the "Sound and Light"...

Great location with splendid view of Pyramids, wonderful Egyptian hospitality- this is a family-run guesthouse and you can fieel like part of the family. Friendly staff that can organize any trip for you (they even organized a visit to the City of the Dead for me). Excellent value for money.
