Very convenient location. The stuff was extremely attentive and helpful. The internet worked really well, the swimming pool is not really its main attraction - just big enough for children to have a splash about.
Room was clean.
But the best part was that there was a very large selection of the most delicious Middle Eastern food at breakfast buffet. Hopefully this is so all year round and not only during summer Arabic holiday season.
The hotel is near the pyramids and Sphinx. It has nice grounds, a good pool, decent food, and a number of somewhat disinterested staff members. The extensive buffet breakfasts, included, were very good, and some staff were quite nice and attentive. The "superior" rooms, like mine, are in separate buildings scattered across the grounds. My building was nice and my room even had a front porch with chairs from which one could watch the tourists coming from their buses. I saw very few Americans at the Oasis (and lots of Italians). The beds were like WWII vintage military issue with a bit of sag, but I slept fine. The TV worked and the shower was quite good. I would rate the hotel about a 3.5 to 3.75 on a 0-5 scale. It was perfectly adequate for me, and it did have location for the pyramids. The airport, though, is far, far away - an hour in traffic and they do have traffic. That's why I had pre-booked another hotel for the night before my early morning flight out of Cairo. That hotel, a solid 5.0, was great, and only 3 miles from the airport with free (5 minute) shuttle service. But the taxi ride between the two hotels took an hour. The Oasis was not the place to be if the flight out is early - at least for me, and the Cairo airport area is not the place to be if one wants convenient visits to Gisa.
From the beautiful swimming pool you can look at the pyramids. Beautiful gardens all over the resort. We found the room a little old and not fully clean but the outside area made up for it. There is actually no playground, just a few babyslides. We had to wait over an hour for our dinner, but in busier times there is a nice buffet. Drinks and other foods are hard to get closeby.
From Bellmen to General Manager and everyone in between including HouseKeeping, you will NOT find any hotel that have their kind of sincere service. It is not the fanciest hotel in Egypt, so you won't get the snobby service that goes with that sometimes, neither is it a cheap quality hotel so you won't get the quality of guests that keeps some families away.
The easiest thing to say is that my son when we were leaving, cried and refused to leave and had be carried to the cab....everytime we were out and he said "Let's go home" he mwant the hotel. The staff tried to take care of every little detail....some parts of the hotel are going through renovation....Which I believe will make it even a better choice than any other hotel in Cairo.

"A great place with an amazing facility and no hidd"
I don't write blogs or reviews. All I wanted to say about this place is that the staff was very friendly. The resort was absolutely astonishing. I travel a lot and I can't say that I have ever been to a place that was nicer than this. Maybe Sandals Jamaica, but besides that, this place takes the cake.
The staff was very polite. Their English is a little iffy, but I have a translator app on my phone that proved very helpful.
The room service menu was great, the food was great, and like I said, everyone there was very polite. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Not only this hotel, but the country. We took planes to get to the northern arias at Alexandria and Luxor and to the south down past sakar and Dashar

This phenomenal hotel is situated a stones throw from the pyramids and sphinx. We were able to get transportation easily to Cairo and the staff at the hotel was able to arrange tours and food for us! Fantastic experience!
nice hotel, excellent facilities, rooms needs deep cleaning. Staff was awesome although they wake me up one night at 3pm! location is bad, noisy and very hard to access the hotel without arranged transportation. i was driving a rented car and the hotel offer free parking.
Southwest of Cairo’s center, the town of Giza is the second largest suburb in the world. Located on the west bank of the Nile river, Giza is most famous for its ancient structures, including the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Great Sphinx. The el Haram area is known for its nightlife.
