If you go to the pyramids, it is best that you stay at one of the many hotels that are right next to them. I was surprised to find these historical monuments are really so close to civilisation! The Meridian is one of the closest hotels, with amazing views - without a doubt, the best thing about it. The hotel is pretty good: the buffet is nice, and the rooms are quite spacious and comfortable, and the service is fine. I'd recommend it, although it's not exactly a luxury hotel.
