We stayed at the Pyramisa for one night on 1 February 2012 and were grateful that it WAS only one night.
We were allocated possibly one of the best rooms overlooking the Nile from an extended , carpeted balcony with a canopy and two sunloungers towards the end. But that was the only good thing about the stay.
The Pyramisa is a superficial hotel. You walk into the hotel and are immediately impressed by its grandeur. A lot of the areas are carpeted including the corridors leading to the rooms.
But look beyond all that and what do you find ?
Our bedroom was quite nice but the beds were rock hard and the pillows were not soft enough to overcome giving you a headache, The room was a little too small to enable us to manoeuvre our armchairs so that we could both see the TV properly and the shower was incapable of producing a decent flow of water.
The main bar in the evening was like the black hole of Calcutta.
The restaurant was not at all welcoming and badly laid out. The servatories were close together causing congestion. The quality of the food was poor and not very hot and the choice was very limited. Only warm plates were available for lunch and dinner but plates for breakfast were all cold and a request for a hot plate was ignored.
Our complaint about a sparrow flying around the dining room was met with tolerant amusement. How it had got in , goodness knows but there was no attempt to catch it and release it outside !
Thank goodness it was for only one night !
