Great View, Comfortable Room
Posted Dec 10, 2010 on Orbitz
I never got tired of looking out my window at the pyramids. At certain times of the night they were all lit up and it was great. Room was large, clean. Beds comfortable and firm. Water barely warm enough. Photos were misleading because there was no indoor roof-top restaurant, just patio chairs and tables. Limited menu. Didn't take plastic. Desk staff inflexable when asking to customize my tour with a guide. Neighborhood really bad, so take a taxi from the hotel. Breakfast was ok and had a mix of western and local food. The English speaking tour guide was great. Loved, loved, loved the camel ride tour of the pyramids. Exchange your money before getting to hotel, because they won't do it for you. Take lots of 5 pound notes or 1 pound coins with you for tipping, so that you don't have to dip into your big money.
