Pyramids Park Resort
Travel Blogs from Giza
Our final day in Egypt was spent on a road trip up to the northern, coastal city of Alexandria, the pearl of the Mediterranean, which was founded in 331BC by Alexander the Great. Fadi and Sherif (who both received koalas when we said goodbye at the end of the day) were waiting to pick us up from our hotel at 7am. The drive took about 3.5 hours …
Our flight to Cairo was at at 6am. Because it was an international flight, you have to be at the airport at least 2 hours early and because we were staying quite a distance from the airport, we had to get up before 3am. Not my favourite time to rise but a small price to pay for adventuring the globe! There is quite a lot of civil unrest in Egypt at …
The cheapest way to get to Uganda was through Egypt and so we decided to go through Cairo, and travel Egypt for a week. I was so excited about the trip that I didn`t really think about the country´s political situation or security and its consequences on tourists. All I could see was myself in that famous sphinx and the pyramids!
6-18-07 Back in Cairo...and onto our Giza vacation So last night, we got to the train station a little early, and our tour guide came with us. Surprising, but nice - Jose thought he was stalking me a little bit, but considering that we made it onto the train safely with no problem, I think it's okay! Our train ride back to Cairo was definitely not …
6-19-07 Living the life of luxury in Giza.... This morning we awoke in our luxurious, comfy bed at the Pyramid Park Intercontinental. In the U.S., the hotel itself is probably about the equivalent of a nice Holiday Inn, but this bed is to DIE FOR. I really never wanted to get out! We did have to move for food though, so we headed over for our …

Historical Traveler Reviews Pyramids Park Resort Giza
I am just back from my holidays in Egypt, spending 3 days in this hotel. I have to say that I was afraid of what I was going to find there after reading the reviews, although I had seen pictures of the hotel and It looked find to me. What a surprise when I arrived there! The hotel is very good and clean. The swimming pool is great. The also have spa facilities, with extra charge. But the jacuzzi is about 3 euros everytime you go and I can say you deserve it after the long walks in Egypt. Rooms and toilet are very large and clean, same as the rest of the resort.
Compared to accomodation elsewhere in Africa the hotel is fair value for money. It does not appear that new and yet is very clean, the staff are friendly and all ones needs are catered for. My trip was for business purposes, so although they have an Awesome pool I did not use the facility. It is very well located to the Giza Pyramids (about 15 min drive) but a long way from the International airtport (90 to 120 Min drive) through Cairo.
What a surprise !!
When I read the reviews about this hotel on this site
I felt panic because it was the hotel where I will be in Cairo..so when I arrived I started to chek out every detail. Me and the rest of a big group had a real surprise when we found that the rality is something else. The Hotel is very nice, rooms are clean and quite. the personal are very nice, breakfast is excelent, food is good and the service is very good. This is the opinion of all the group(about 25 person). I give the hotel 4.5
Stayed in a suite for 3 nights. Clean and spacious.
Reception contacted us on book in to see if everything was okay.
Concierge was very helpfull and always asked if all okay with the stay.
Food was very good and nice selection.
Good to be away from the city centre as stayed there for 1 day and found Cairo noisey and smelly.
Would stay again as prefered this hotel to the other ones we stayed in Cairo.
All in all very happy !!
I must admit that I had a quite romantic picture in my head when booking a trip to Cairo. Pharaons, history, River Nile etc.etc.....Be prepared - it is only about money. Booked private guide and transfers from airport - stayed in Giza to be near the pyramids. Large resort with plenty of restaurants, shops etc. like a small village. Room was large, smelly,not very clean, dark and with view to the motorway*lol*, not much Pyramids there. Staff was friendly as long as you showed them an envelope with money. Love arabic food - and did not stear clear of the tummy thing ( I was expecting that). Egypytian Museum a must if you have strong nerves. Should you feel hungry after a trip to pyramids and sfinks - there is a pizza hut at the end of the road. Cairo is one big money mashine, noisy, dirty and River Nile stinky. Still, I am happy to have tried it. Enjoy ;-)
Stayed here on a 3 stop tour of Egypt. Definately the worst of our 3 hotels, a big let down after the splendor of Luxor. The reception is quite nice, but once you enter "the resort" part of the hotel it all goes down hill. The rooms are definately past their best, the bath filled up when you took a shower, - without the plug in, we reported it but nothing changed, despite man with plunger - awful smell ect....The food in the Italian Restauarnt was quite good, but the buffet breakfast was only just ok. I had the misfortune to get a real 'Egypt 'gypie' tummy at this hotel, never been so ill before! a good course of Anti-biotics sorted me out.
Have just returned from Cairo on eight day trip to Egypt. We booked out of this hotel after three days because it is entirely misleading that this is a five star hotel. It barely makes a three star rating in my book. Although a big and airy main building with reasonably friendly staff, it does not bear close examination as the furniture is stained and sometimes damaged. The carpets are the same, ill fitting, wrinkled and torn around the edges. The rooms were the same as well as having old electric and toilet fittings. The pool is vast - but very cold! Food is very disappointing. Has a French restaurant but the only thing French about it was the French fries. Otherwise basically a grill. We ate once in the Italian and again it was badly presented and not up to standard. We checked out after three days - but they still insisted on us paying for the full stay as we had booked an internet advanced purchase rate. I have written to Inter Continental to complain. Come on Inter Continental - get this hotel up to the five standard you claim it is!! - and give me my money back!!
Just returned from a whirlwind tour of Egypt. Stayed at the Intercontinental Pyramids Park for 3 nites.
Our family just returned from a holiday in Cairo, and found this hotel had a tired facade, but lots of positive features. The pool is huge and beautiful; clean, but cold in March. The kids loved it. We found the food to be very good no matter which restaurant we chose. The breakfast buffet had a good variety, and was generally fine.
Needs a Face Lift
This hotel needs a major renovation. Everything looks and feels dowdy. The buffet breakfast was poor.
