Cairo is often associated with ancient Egypt and is also synonymously associated with the world-famous Giza Pyramid Complex. These jaw-dropping structures are something that all travellers aspire to visit and we can definitely understand why. They’re humongous architectural marvels that are considered to be one of the seven wonders of modern society. We can also understand if you just can’t get enough of these awesome pyramids and want to feel like you’re in reach of them 24/7. So consider booking any of these 5 hotels with a view of the stunning Giza Pyramids!
The Best View Pyramids Hotel might be a newly opened hotel in Cairo, but it’s currently considered to be one of the best hotels in the city! The rooms on offer feel homey and some even come with a seating area for you to rest after a long day out. You’ll also have access to an en-suite bathroom which comes with either a shower or a bathtub, and even complimentary toiletries and a hairdryer! You should even consider heading out to the on-site bar and mingling with other guests. But we saved the best for last, head up to the sun terrace where you’ll have an unparalleled view of the Giza Pyramids.
“The view can’t be beaten, and the owner and staff are very friendly and helpful! Breakfast is included and was even provided to us in a box on the morning that we needed to leave for the airport very early. It’s a perfect spot for a trip to the pyramids!” - Whitney, Booking.com user.
Most hotels in Cairo are located slightly further away from the Giza Pyramids. But you won’t get closer to the pyramids than the Pyramids View Inn! It’s optimally located right in front of the Giza Pyramids Plateau, and that means it offers you an amazing view of the aforementioned pyramids. The rooms are simply decorated but it just feels like home, so you won’t feel out of place while on vacation. Some of the bedrooms actually offer guests a view of the pyramids, but if you can’t get one of those rooms, head up to the rooftop terrace for the jaw-dropping views.
If you want to stay in a hotel that offers all its guests world-class service, the Mena House Hotel might just be the hotel for you. This hotel is surrounded by 40-acres of well-maintained gardens and has an on-site spa, swimming pool and a fitness centre. All of the bedrooms in the hotel are air-conditioned and are decorated with handcrafted furniture and brilliant fabrics. All rooms are also fitted with private bathrooms that come with complimentary bathrobe and slippers. There are also several on-site restaurants, and even better, you can tuck into the offered breakfast at dining room facing the garden and pyramids.
Le Meridien Pyramids Hotel & Spa is considered to be one of the top picks in Cairo and we can definitely see why! Located just about 1km away, the hotel offers unparalleled views of the majestic Giza Pyramids. If you’re lucky, you might actually get a room with a balcony that faces the pyramids in all their glory. However, if you’re unable to get such a room, you don’t have to worry. There are several spots in the hotel that offers a great view of the pyramids and the best view might just be from the swimming pool. So have a dive and enjoy the stunning sights.
