I stayed at the Pharaoh Egypt hotel for one night after a luxury 5 star Nile Cruise and after spending two nights at the Grand Pyramids Hotel in Giza so it was a total disappointment for me! The staff is really kind and helpful although the hotel itself is run down and for USD 65.00 a night i think it is highly over priced. Nothing fancy in the room it is pretty basic with a hard bed a small tv with only Arabic Channels. The bathroom left alot to be desired, chipped tiles and it just had a boring and tired look. There is no maintenance on the hotel and my room had a balcony with a rusted door that didnt open fully just for me to squeeze myself through to the balcony of a back street area so basically no views whatsoever. The food ofcourse is much much cheaper compared to the other bigger hotels and if you are more of a high class traveller who loves their luxury then this is a definate no no for you but if you are on a budget and are just looking for a place to sleep then it should be ok. After all i suppose you get what you pay for so that is my opinion on the hotel.
On the other hand the staff was great and helpful, food was OK and there were little details in the room like towles folded as swans etc etc and room service was good and efficient. The staff at Pharaoh Egypt actually go an extra mile to ensure your stay with them is comfortable!
