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.

If I knew 1/4 of what I know after my visit I would have saved hours of planning. This hotel is by far in the safest location in Giza if there really is one. Staff: Ms. Ratiba is the owner and truly was like my second mother when I was there. I am a solo traveler. Brother Mahmoud and Ahmed...

I highly recommend this place! Everyone from the Guardian Guest House will welcome you and treat you like a family during your stay - from the owner of the house, Ratiba, to all the people who work in the Guardian Guest House. It's my 2nd time staying here, and just like the 1st time, I feel so at home here...

This is a great place to stay at Giza, great location, comfortable rooms and really low prices. Rooftop View - The roof top probably had the best view of the pyramids being higher than other nearby buildings, plus it’s actually bang opposite the Sphinx. The entry for light show is right below the hotel but one can watch it from...

Location, location, location! Literally a 2 minute walk from the entrance to the Great Pyramids. It also has an outstanding rooftop terrace where I drank tea and watched the sun rise over they pyramids...epic. Also I booked the room with a view. It was totally worth it when I woke up and looked out my window. I'll never forget it....

First- I do have to say - there is no better view of the pyramids in all of Giza! Seriously - if you are going to Egypt just to see the great pyramids - this is where you have to stay! Next - The accommodations were very comfortable and clean. The location is WONDERFUL - Cairo itself is 'intense' (to...

Just as other people said, THIS place does have fantastic views of the Pyramids, and the rooms were good-sized and comfortable. The owner, Om Muhammad and her staff, (Mahmood and others) were so helpful and kind. They served such a fantastic breakfast, with food cooked to order if you'd like, which included Falafel and eggs too! You will not be...

“The city view rooms face north. You can still view the two main Pyramids from the side. Cooler in the summer but cold in winter.”
