I stayed in the hotel very briefly only for two nights, that too in two instalments. Overall, I liked the hotel, and the fact that I was able to see the pyramids from my hotel room. It was not very expensive, and at the same time, the facilities were about right for the price. The hotel was probably not the best, but quite comfortable for some greedy-sight-seeing-person for me, since I would spend most of my time outdoors rather than staying in the hotel. If you want to stay in the hotel, and enjoy the cozy amenities and atmosphere instead of venturing out into the desert and heart of Egypt, there may be better hotels, but Horizon pyramids addressed my needs to perfection! The hotel staff where all very friendly, and all of them (in particular, Abdul Hameed) helped us a lot during our stay there!
During our second stay, we decided to take the hotel taxi services to go on a quick sight seeing of Cairo, and then take the dinner cruise on Nile. Though the taxi services was may be overpriced by 10 - 15%, I would say that our taxi driver Mohammad Farid more than made up for it. He was not only our driver but also our guide and went on to become a good friend during the two days we spent with him. He always would take into interest the wishes of the tourists. For example, I and my wife would not have had lunch; we would not prefer proper restaurants since that may dock time off sight-seeing and hence, Farid would take us to the right place where we can find good food in quick time. He simply did whatever we asked for. He would give us as much time as we wanted to spend in each of the monuments, and at the same time, he was capable of making up for that extra time while driving. For example, we had our flight at 10 PM in the night, and I was extremely greedy to watch the sound and light show from 7 - 8 PM, before we could take the flight. Farid managed the time so well that we were at the aiport well in advance of the flight. If you are taking the hotel taxi at Horizon pyramids hotel, ask for Farid and you would love the experience!
If trip advisor allowed me to, I would assign 4 stars for the hotel, and 5 stars for Farid :-)
