My travel agent had suggested a different hotel near the pyramids, but I saw that the reviews were not that impressive, while Barcelo had fairly good ones. And it was only a couple miles farther out. The hotel itself is quite good value, with modern rooms and a large, extensive buffet breakfast. The issue is location. In Cairo, a couple... More

The Barcelo Pyramids Cairo is a try-hard hotel that doesn't live up to its grand foyer. The rooms may seem adequate or even nice at first, but often things don't work. We had problems with a room safe, keys that failed to work & had to be re-set every day, a TV that did not work & was never fixed;... More

Poor customer service and misleading information about hotel services and facilities. Rules and regulations made along as you go. Nothing in writing. Different answers to the same question given by each staff. Breakfast selection poor, bread rolls hard as rock.

I booked this hotel for myself and a client. The facilities are great and the building itself is amazing. The staff were all very helpful and courteous. My business requires more travel to Giza and I plan to use this hotel solely for future trips.

If you are staying in Cairo for some days, and you don't need some fancy hotel, but you are still looking for some quality, then try Barcelo Three Pyramids. They are OK. Their rooms are fine, they clean almost daily with very few exceptions. Their buffets are fine. Although, I think they need to add some more African cuisines. The... More
