“Loved the lobby. Wish the rooms were as nice....but very disappointed.”
Reviewed 1 January 2012

How can I say this?? The people of Egypt are so very nice and eager to please you. The Movenpick employees were delightful. But once you got past the very lovely lobby, the rooms were quite old and shabby. Really in need of a refurbishment.

This is a good place to stay if you have kids that just go in and out of the pool and room.

My room had 2 gooey, icky, sticky spots on the carpet that I had to cover with bath towels. Didn't want to walk barefoot in that room.

The buffet was a hit and miss sort of situation. We had one wonderful dinner and one fabulously fresh breakfast there....and then the day of check out....disaster--all old food. Old bread....old dinner items....it was New Years Day, so I guess no one wanted to cook...and we did not want to eat the terrible stale food they set out.

I wish we would of spent the extra money and upgraded the hotel.

Hotel is situated close to Giza pyramids. It is a single story hotel with all standard rooms on ground floor but pyramids cannot be viewed from there. Only roof top cafe offers a view of pyramids. The rooms were clean and spacious and the service was acceptable. The rooms did not have tea coffee maker. Buffet breakfast was ok and seemed repetitive on 3rd day.Overall ok though falling short of 5 star standards.

Room Tip: Many Rooms are situated far from the reception

We stayed here for the first two nights of our honeymoon. It was a great base to see the Pyramids but a half hour drive into the centre of Cairo; we hired a guide and driver for a full day's sightseeing so this wasn't too much of a problem. The staff at the hotel were excellent and the food was fine. The roof top cafe has a lovely view of the pyramids. Good hotel for a short stay.

Family of four stayed at this hotel.Rooms were neat and clean although a bit tired but so is the most of Cairo!! Buffet breakfast was good , service acceptable.We were only there for two nights but it was fine for a short stay.Roof top cafe allows for great view of Pyramids,it is outside hotel though so ask the staff how to get there,distance to other parts of Cairo is a problem but with recent protests we felt it was the best option not to stay in CBD.We recommend this hotel for a short stay.

Stayed here in November in between a Nile cruise and Hurghada stay. Was perfectly located for trip to pyramids,only a couple of minutes away by taxi, roof top bar good for relaxing and view of the pyramids,but was hazy/smoggy so restricted, but not the hotels fault!Only downside is that it's way out of the city centre so a bit of a commute to go to Egyptian Museum,but that's only a minor point really. Very clean,modern interior,liked the bungalow/chalet style layout with landscaped gardens,room good. Several eating options inside, bar area nice to relax after the chaos of a day out in Cairo,we got Italian from restaurant by the outdoor pool and was more than happy there, breakfast was buffet style and enough choice to satisfy.A wedding function was on the evening we stayed and it added to the atmosphere,nice to see local events. Would definately stay here again.
