Movenpick Resort Cairo Pyramids Reviews
Great stay Mar 28, 2013
We stayed 3 nights here in 2 interconnecting rooms and really, have absolutely nothing to complain about. The rooms were clean and comfortable, slightly outdated, but that's about it. The beds were big with big soft pillows. There was lots of hot water and the tub had one of those 1/2 glass covers that are a bit annoying as water gets out.
The included breakfast buffet was huge with lots of choices including made-to-order omelettes. The day we were to fly out early in the morning, they were kind enough to make us boxed breakfasts for us to take with. I thought that was super sweet of them.
There is a buffet restaurant in the evening as well as a Thai restaurant. We only ate at the buffet restaurant the one night and it was decent with an ok selection, though expensive. Thankfully they only charged us 1 adult price for the 3 kids as there were no kid prices, but I did have to ask about it. Drinks were not included in the supper buffet. There is also a gym and spa, though did not use either of these so cannot comment. The pool is quite large, though not heated so can be very cold, at least it was when we were there.
Wifi is available but it is expensive at 135 LE for 24 hrs if I remember correctly. Bottled water was also expensive at 20LE for a large bottle, expensive being a relative word as it's much cheaper at the markets or elsewhere.
You can set up drivers for the day to anywhere in Cairo and area as we did the one day to take us to the Museum, wait for us and take us back. Cost was 140 LE for 6 hrs.
There is no view of the pyramids from the rooms, but just steps out of the hotel, there is a great view.
All in all, we had a pleasant stay with no real complaints and can recommend it to families, couples, singles.

Good Hotel Jul 07, 2007
It's located near the pyramid, so it's great if you wanna see the pyramid. You can even walk to the pyramid.
Staff are really friendly and speak good English.
Breakfast and restaurant are excellent for the price. $10 is enough per person if you want a good full meal. Sweets such as ice cream and cakes are cheap and good, too.
Bathroom is big and nice. A bathtub is big enough to take a bath to relax. A bed is nice, soft, and comfortable. It's a nice place to stay! I recommend this hotel!
