Budget Hotels with a Pyramid View

1. Guardian Guest House

The Guardian Guest House is my favorite of the pyramid view hotel in Cairo. It is a budget-friendly hotel that is around $65 a night at the time of writing. It has impressive views in front of the Sphinx and pyramids. There is also a rooftop where you can see similar views to the room pictured here.

Free breakfast is included in your booking and you could even take it up to the rooftop to enjoy with the wonderful views. Not only that, the people running this hotel are super kind and hospitable. It was a basic hotel with no frills but it was still very clean and in a great location. You can see by the reviews it’s highly rated too.

It is a super short walk to the entrance to the pyramids making it convenient to stay here. Also, don’t miss the Pizza Hut nearby where you can go to the rooftop and find insane views of the pyramids without crowds!

The room I booked was a double room with 2 beds and it was room number 106.

Mid-range Hotels with a Pyramid view

5. Jacuzzi by the Pyramids

Jacuzzi by the Pyramids is an airbnb with a 3 pyramid view. The unique feature of this apartment-style hotel is that there is an actual jacuzzi in the room. You can soak in the jet tub with incredible views – what an unreal moment!

The other really cool thing about this hotel is that the blinds in Apartment 3 automatically lift up. I accidentally booked the hotel pictured above, apartment 4. This one does not have the automatic blinds but I was able to get permission to enter apartment 3 just to film it. As you can see in my Instagram video, the blinds are automatically lifting up revealing the most insane view of the pyramids. This particular airbnb has blown up on social media. It is definitely one of the most instagrammable hotels in Egypt.

The only thing to note about this place is that it is a bit hard to find. It is located on a side street in a residential area and we had trouble finding it but the host helped us locate it. It is also a bit of a secluded area from tourists. I wouldn’t call it unsafe but if you feel on edge, it might not be for you. Again, Egypt is very safe in my opinion and I had no issues but I wanted to flag. This Airbnb is a bit on the pricier side. It cost me $160 a night when I visited in December. It was definitely worth the view.

After staying, I discovered the same building has another apartment for rent, called Hi Pyramids and you can book it here. There is no jacuzzi but it has a balcony overlooking the pyramid view.
