          A beautiful hotel. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. Some of the best food we had during our trip was here. Can not think of a single negative comment. If your going to Cairo seriously consider this as your hotel!

          Big place, pyramid views

          This is a huge hotel with 3 pools. Some of the rooms have pyramid views, ours had pyramid glimpses. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom roomy. Some of the fixtures were showing wear and tear and starting to fall apart. The prices are all very touristy and not reflecting the prices outside. It was good to have a bank in the foyer.
          The buffet was great breakfast.

          This was a great hotel. Roms are clean and comfortable withe safety boxes. The food is good, nice pool and staff are all very nice. This area can suffer from smog but that is Cairo so not much you can do about that. Very safe and would stay there again.

          Nice big room, friendly staff and a wonderful view over the pyramids. The breakfast offered great variety, and the restaurant itself was op 24/7. Unfortunately the bigger pool was closed because we were early in the season, the smaller one though was sufficient as there were not so many people anyway.

          Friendly staff, relaxed comfortable rooms, extensive buffet breakfast selection. Great falafel takeaway place down the street & kiosk to buy cheaper water. A long way into town, but then it is away from the chaotic traffic of the centre of Cairo.

          Fantastic location and the view from the pool is quite surreal. The breakfast buffet is great - good spread and variety of foods. Definitely try the rice pudding and the Oriental pastry if you're there - might be a bit too sweet though. The pizza (a la carte) is great and really good value! All in all a great stay (although we didn't have enough time to enjoy the amenities)

          Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Pyramids Hotel & Spa Giza

          OK if you get the "right" room

          from

          We stayed at Le Meridien for 3 nights in March 2005. Having arrived at nearly midnight we were given a room in the older block near the pool. It was extremely basic (and dirty) and certainly not up to 4 star standard. We asked to be moved immediately but we were told that this wouldn't be possible until the next morning. We were eventually moved late the following afternoon and that was only because we absolutely insisted that we be moved to the newer block. This second room was fine if a little noisy. If you are allocated a room with a number in the 600's it will be in the old dirty pool block - take my advice and stand your ground and get a non 600 room as they are in a totally different class.

          On a more positive note the hotel pool is very nice, over looking the pyramids and the restaurants (especially the Mexican) were very good.

          Spring Break

          from

          Stayed here from March 18th through the 22nd. Great hotel and a very good location. Others have commented on noise but we did not notice this as a problem. The food was very good and the staff was very friendly. We did not see many Americans at the hotel or anywhere else for that matter. Nice trip and a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting the pyramids.

          Lobby good, rooms terrible

          from

          This hotel is rated as a 4 star in Cairo and is extremely convenient for sightseeing the Pyramids and Saqqara. The lobby is extremely beautiful and there's a great view of the Pyramids. However, the rooms are in terrible shape. The doors use actual keys, the beds are dirty, the bedrooms dank, and no A/C whatsoever.

          The good news is the restaurants and in-room dining. Cairo is a pretty cheap place to eat, period, and the restaurants are no exception. Their quality of food is also pretty good. A word of warning to not try their "pub/sandwich" food since it's not that great. In-house laundering/dry-cleaning is very cheap and prompt.

          In the morning, there is a great breakfast buffet that's included in your room price. There's also a currency exchange outlet right in the hotel.

          I was going to give it a one star but the lobby and restaurant food bumped it up to a 2 star. Still unacceptable for a 4 star hotel.

          Beyond Expectations!

          from

          The best, from the bedding to the service! Our room was immaculate with Egyptian cotton/down comforters. There was a bank on site, spectacular lobby, full breakfast, fantastic heated pool with a view of the pyramids and excellent service. There's even a spa (although we were too busy siteseeing to take advantage). This is the place to stay!

          If you want a pyramid view from your room, make sure to request an upper floor so you can see them all. Or a room with a view of the pool and two of the pyramids is lovely!

          Best hotel ever!

          from

          If you get the chance to go to Egypt - Stay at this hotel. It is just beautiful, with far and away the best service I have ever had at a hotel. From the hibiscus welcome drink to everyone from the concierge to the bellman remembering your name to the many flowers various staff gave me during our stay (the pool bartender even brought a vase of pink coloured water for my flowers!). It just blew us away. Spectacular view of the pyramids from our room, walking distance to shops, restaurants (the restaurants at the hotel were fantastic and extremely reasonably priced)and of course the pyramids. We also stayed at the Oberoi Mena House - even though that hotel was great as well - Le Meridien was a much better value and much more personal service.

          Great hotel, good location

          from

          Stayed here for 3 nights from 29 Nov 2004. Very friendly welcome, even at 3 am. Nice big room, good bathroom. Excellent breakfast buffet. Staff very friendly, service excellent. Only drawback is distance from central Cairo, about 35 mins by taxi. Worth paying extra for the pyramid view rooms.

          Best place to stay for Pyramids

          from

          I loved this hotel. The lobby is grand. The room was big and our balcony was huge. It had a great view of the Pyramids. Food was good. The service was 1st class. It is walking distence to the pyramids. Would stay there again!

          Excellent Hotel !!

          from

          We stayed at the hotel from 9th September until 18th September and loved every minute of our stay.

          The location and facilities in the hotel are excellent. The Royal club rooms with a Pyramid view are spacious and very comfortable, especially considering the price.

          In my view the thing that seperates this hotel from others I've stayed in, is the superb service given by it's staff. They all give excellent service and make you feel very special. In particlular, the staff from the Pool area and Royal Club lounge were amongst the best I've ever met.

          It's not over the top to say I've stayed in far more expensive & more highly rated hotels, that do not come close to the level of service that we experienced during our stay.

          I can't recommend this hotel enough !! Superb.

          Loved it!

          from

          This hotel is excellent - friendly staff who can't do enough for you. the rooms are quite big and very clean. Room service is excellent and very cheap too. The only complaint was that the water in the shower and from the taps was brown but we assumed this was a problem in Egypt rather than the fault of the hotel. Highly recommended.

          Excellent hotel

          from

          This is a first class hotel, the service is excellent. Cleanliness is of the highest standard with plenty to do. Food is excellent and there is something for everyones taste.

          Cant say anything bad about this hotel.
