Rated 5 out of 5 by CarloRF Great hotel to proximity of the pyramids
The location is perfect with being close to the pyramids and local restaurants. Very safe and security with security check points for vehicles and walk-ins. Comfortable rooms with good facilities. Convenient bank in the hotel for converting to local currency. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Benda Very good service, perfect pool and outdoorfacilities
Meridien is a classic hotel that provides you very good service, clean rooms with good beds and a fine variation in restaurant facilities. We enjoyed having lunch in relaxed café in the pool area and a lovely romantic dinner on the restaurant terrasse with.
You are close to the fantastic Pyramides, we could see two tops from the room and also within half an hours drive of downtown Cairo, which is vived, crowed and interesting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mustafa Renovated building needs to work on staff
Years ago I used this hotel a couple of times and I did not like it. The rooms were old and smelly. So, I stopped booking there and used other SPG hotels in Cairo. After the 25th of January revolution in Egypt, and for traveling and security reasons, the choices were limited so I found myself booking this hotel again. I was in for a shock. They have done a great job in renovating this hotel and the old smelly rooms were replaced by fresh clean rooms. It is unfortunate that they finished the renovation just before the revolution which meant very fee people had the chance to see the new look. I didn't mind and I started booking there regularly. For the price I was paying for the rooms, I was never disappointment. That is why I booked my last stay in Cairo there again. This time, though, things have changed. The hotel, unlike the times before, was busy. Which is great for the hotel and for Egypt. But, the service is not as it was before. I was surprised my first night when I found that my toilet was not clean (took a photo), room service came with no salt and no pepper and basic things were missing from the room. I asked to see a manager the next morning and I ended up talking to an assistant manager who was nice and listened to my complaints. I showed her the photo of the toilet too. I did not like her reaction at that moment. She just said sorry and thank you. But, when I came back to the room in the evening everything was taken care of. Not only that, when I checked out I was surprised to find out that my room service dinners became complementary! The hotel took care of them which was very sweet and nice. I hope the management is smart enough to know that renovated rooms a lone don't make the call. They need to keep after their staff and they need to make sure the staff is as good as the new rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hamdkha Very Nice hotel with a view to the History!
One of the best hotel I have ever seen, staff are very welcoming, they are all very helpful from the arrival throughout the stay. The bell boy Mohamed with very helpful when we change our room. We had an issue with the first dinner at the main restaurant, but the restaurant manager was smart enough to handle it, this guy is a great asset to the hotel. Hala the training manager was very helpful and even she went an extra step by asking us every morning how was the last day and if any assistance that we may need. The cafe by the swimming pool is a great place to relax after dinner specially with one of those cup of mint tea! food is excellent, waiters and chefs of the main restaurant were all very helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SouthKorean Pyramids View Room is highly recommended
I stopped over one night at Cairo on my way to Sharm El Sheikh.
You will enjoy three things at Le Meridien Pyramids.
First, staffs remember you and your name during your stay as soon as you check in.
Second, staffs speak good English and are very accommodating and friendly.
And third, literally you can see Pyramids in your room or in outdoor swimming pools.
There are a couple of things that you may not be satisfied with though.
First, there is no extra privileges for SPG Gold & Platinum members such as free breakfast or free internet access.
And second, if you like to walk around, there is not many things to see except for Pyramids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tjsKathleen Fabulous Views, food, & service
I went for a short stay to see the Pyramids. The view from my room was unbelievable, I could see the Great Pyramids 24/7! Since I was traveling solo, I did not venture too far from the hotel. I ate at both restaurants, and the pool bar. The food was impecable, and the service was first rate. I thought the prices were fair considering the location and the quality. I did not use any of the services listed (spa) & was dissapointed that there was not a gift shop. other than that, it was delightful

Rated 5 out of 5 by CoronaExtra Loved it. Will come back in a minute
Had a great two stay here with my family. Its far enough away from the city to be free from any political nonsense, but is super close to Giza historical sites.. like you see two pyramids whilst swimming in the hotel pool.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. As Starwood Platinum I received a great suite upgrade, free drinks in the lobby bar, and a bunch of other value added benefits.
Rooms air condition to ICE cold.. like my daughter was in a sweater I got it so cool.
I would come back here in a minute. I really don't want to leave..
Really enjoyable property that is a amazing value.
Its not a Cat 7 Lux. Property.. its Egypt.
Its a little slower pace, but super friendly.
Tame your expectations and you'll love it.
