TravelPod Member ReviewsGrand Pyramids Hotel Giza
Clean and friendly staff, room was clean, but toilet and shower were both not working very well. No free Internet in the rooms, sporadic Internet in the lobby...beware of Camel rides in the evening, by the pool. Helpful staff though...lastly terrible breakfast buffet...mainly breads and some hot food.
