    COCKROACHES

    by

    A very nice five star hotel with pool, shop and good service, good restrurant, big rooms, BUT imagine something clawling up your leg in the middle of the night when you look it´s a big cockroach. NIIIIIIIIIIIICE, we called the reception and told them that we have cockroaches in our room- the answer was ' you´re in Egypt' it´s common. Thank you for that answer, However they offerd us an other room. We did not sleep so much that night.

    really nice

    by

    It's a really nice hotel of totally 240 rooms. Rooms are like bungalows, each with it's own little terrace; ideal for enjoying warm summer nights with family or friends. Although, the furnitere is not very new and could be a bit damaged on some parts.

    Unique Quality: 240 rooms, one pool ( a nice one), health club, tennis courts, Italian restaurant...

More about Moevenpick Resort Pyramids Cairo

Moevenpick is to be recommended!

by TripAdvisor Member RoderickH

We stayed at the Movenpick Pyramids Giza for 4 nights in April 2008. We really loved it there: the rooms are set in the gardens in “bungalow style”, and were clean, as was the the bathroom. Each bungalow has a terrace with chairs and a table, where you can sit, as we frequently did, relaxing after enjoying a tour. The pyramids can be seen from parts of the garden, but not from the pool, so the picture at the Movenpick website is obviously doctored.

The pool is centrally located, nice and with enough swimming space, although the water is somewhat cold, at least in April. If you like sports it is also possible to play tennis for a minimal fee (EGP 30 hour).

Several restaurants are located in the hotel. In the orangerie, where the buffet breakfast is also served, you can have lunch and dinner: adequate, but nothing special, as is the breakfast. In addition to that an Italian restaurant and a Thai can be found on the premises. The Italian is not to be recommended, but the Thai is. Moreover you can also walk to the Meridien (5 min) where several restaurants are located. At the Nubian village (Lebanese grill) you can sit outside, near their pool. Food there is nice, especially the freshly baked bread.

Walking through the streets in Giza and Cairo is an adventure though. Lots of people will try to lure you into their shops or sell you something, as is the case at the popular tourist attractions. However when accompanied by our tour guide, Karen from Heart of Egypt, we did not have this problem. Karen also showed us some very nice sights, both on and of the beaten track, which truly made our visit to Egypt an unforgettable experience.

Overall we also enjoyed our time at the Movenpick. Although in Europe it would not deserve the five stars it advertises (rather three), I was told for Egypt the rating is different.

Oasis away from the traffic

by TripAdvisor Member Rohanman

Good location, you can just see the Pyramids from the garden.
Accomodation in small rows of rooms in the well laid out and looked after gardens. The pool was heated a little and tested daily. The Public spaces were modern and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful with quick service. Food from the Buffet was mediocre and only warm not hot. Food from the menu was good, we had an excellent Burger and good Spaghetti Bolognese. At breakfast good omelettes were cooked to order.

good for sleep bad for food

by TripAdvisor Member stevo19926

very good place, staff freindly nice people good sized rooms the food was below average good heated pool but the hotel picture at the pool is misleading as you can not see the pyramids from the pool.

A good choice

by TripAdvisor Member Eccles_traveller

We moved to the Moevenpick after two disappointing nights at the President Hotel in Cairo.....and I was really impressed. The rooms were spacious and clean and there was even bottled water and cakes in the room! The staff were friendly and efficient. When I reported a leak in my bathroom it was fixed immediately.

The huge buffet breakfast was fantastic and we ate dinner at both the Thai restaurant and in the bar - both good meals. Our best meal however was down the road at the Peace Seafood Restaurant!

Great Value For Money

by TripAdvisor Member Lymingtonians

Spent three nights as part of a standard Kuoni 7 Night Nile Cruise plus option package. We did not want to explore Cairo on our own, and from this brief experience it seemed a sensible decision. We did Kuoni trips to the Pyramids and to the City/Cairo Museum. Found the traffic levels and congestion horrendous, almost to Bangkok misery proportions. Hotel excellent in all respects except that some restaurant staff had limited English, a rather stroppy attitude from some of the women, and confusion with some orders. Breakfast buffet superb and quantities vast. Evening meals quite good and cheap. Room large and clean, TV worked fine, especially for the African Cup Football, and room staff helpful. We just went along with the notion of tipping everyone you meet with a small note, and everything worked fine................. Kuoni, as always, had excellent staff and arrangements. Our overall bill was £1800 for two of us for ten days - Cruise,all food, three flights, trips, tips etc. Amazing value for money in my opinion. If you don't want to explore Cairo on your own, the Movenpick is a good base , but being in Giza near the Pyramids is a long drive to the city centre.

Hey Walker, this is now the 21st century..!!! The only place you'd be likely
to be put up in a hut without A/C, room service en-suite etc..etc..etc..
would be a Bedouin beach camp in Sinai (which foreigners like us love..!!!).
Have a great (5 star) time..!!
