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.
I stayed with a pyramid view in the new section. I am not sure why the management thought it would be a good idea to obstruct the great view of the pyramids with rows of palm trees. There are way too many of them. When I checked in, I was given a welcoming drink. Nice, but it was handed to me during check-in while my hands were full (passport, credit card, pen). It is unfortunate that coffee is not available in or near the lobby in the morning. You can get coffee, but it is a golf-cart ride away from the lobby, so useless if you are meeting a taxi or a tour guide. The property is large and could use some signage to indicate the location of reception, dining rooms, etc. I spent a bit of time walking in the wrong direction until I got my bearings. On the other hand, the bell staff is good about providing rides on the golf carts. Most frustrating is the room numbers. On the elevators you push 3 to get to room 202 and push 4 to get to room 333. It is weird and I could see it caused constant confusion for many guests. When you do find the correct floor for your room, you need to walk down the hall backwards to see any of the room numbers on the left hand side of the hallway. They are recessed and facing the wrong direction for anybody coming from the elevator.

Workers at the hotel were very nice. Security at the hotel was good. The pool area was was excellent. The main problem with this hotel is they only have one restaurant open at a time. So there is no variety of food it dosent matter which one is open they all serve basically the same food. If you wanted to go anywhere else you have to pay a driver you cannot walk anywhere from this hotel. This hotel is not a five star maybe a 3 star.
We live in Cairo, and were looking for somewhere to go to swim during the holidays. After checking out the prices for day use at hotels around Cairo, we found Soluxe for a great price for the night. We are glad we stayed here for a little get-away. The check-in was swift, and they let us (and our friends who had booked 2 rooms) check in a bit early, which meant more pool time for the kids. Our room, 3104, was on the ground floor and while it did not have a great view, it did have a huge balcony area. The room was at the end and circular. The bedding looked fresh. I found the beds a bit hard, but my hubby found it to be fine. We saw our friends' rooms, and they also had large rooms which were clean and well-taken care of. We came mainly for the pool. While the pool is not huge, it was delightfully cool and was just right for the kids. There is a small kiddy-sized pool right next to the bigger pool. There are nice chairs and tables surrounding the pool, and there is a guy there to get you towels. We gave this man a little money and he saved us a table both days of our stay (we were a party of 8). Actually, you don't feel like you are at a hotel, but more like at someone's private villa for a little swim. We ordered in lunch and dinner from local restaurants (reception had menus). The pool seems to be used often by guests, and as such seemed to be cleaned regularly. Breakfast was simple, but the kids liked the offerings. Overall, we liked our stay!
If your looking for 5 star this is not it. BUT if you want the best staff I have experienced. Always pleased to look after your every whim. A breakfast boo big to finish & views to die for, the Pyramids about 500 meters away & the Sphinx across the road - literally - look no further. From the roof top you will have unrestricted view of the Pyramids light & sound show.
Value for money 10/10
If you have a problem with stairs this is not for you as there is no lift. TO ME THAT WAS THE ONLY DOWN SIDE..
We had a great experience at the Le Meridien. Our room was a pyramids view room and it was awesome seeing that view both and night and in the morning. The pool also has a great view of the pyramids. Hotel restaurants were good with a nice selection of foods. The prices were very reasonable at the restaurants. Security was good as well.
I spent 2 nights at ghis hotel.the room was dirty ,the tv was very dated, the recipients give me a room at the complete end of the hotel and i refused to stay over there, he said the hotel was full , i changed my room .however after staying 2 night i found the hitel was completely empty maybe 30% occupant.
The main star at this hotel was the location and its pool .
Overall i give this 2.5 stars out of 5
"Hospitable. Welcoming. The Best Hotel Experience."
The hotel might be rated at just four stars, but it deservedly can be rated five stars because of the top customer service provided by the staff especially the hotel manger. Their utmost pleasure is to make sure you enjoy your stay at the hotel and our stay was enjoyed to the fullest, the staff were always wanting to go the extra mile to make sure we had everything we wanted and when things broke down they came straight away to fix it.
It's all about respecting them and they will respect you tenfold, a hotel experience that will all loved and I don't feel there will be another hotel I will stay at as long as I come to Cairo.
A hotel I recommend everyone to go to if coming to Cairo.
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.
