Fantastic historical hotel

Hotel dates from 1869 and has so much history. The manager kindly showed us the suites used by Montgomery and Churchill. Truly amazing.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Mena House. The pool is a wonder full place to unwind and cool off. The hospitality at the Mena House is very good. I was very happy with the quality of the room and the bed was comfortable.

The Mena House has a premier location with fabulous views of the pyramids of Giza. I love the history of the hotel itself, which received its first guests in 1887 and has been renowned for its quality for almost 130 years now. The rooms and service are excellent.

I was there before sunset and the pyramids are as closest as one can get tothe pyramids. The Mena House is one of the most unique hotels in Cairo, with its own rich and colorful history. Surrounded by 40 acres of verdant green gardens, this palatial hotel is located in the shadows of the Great Pyramids of Giza in Cairo.... More

The Mena House has so much history, it is an old hotel but with super service and the best view of the Great Pyramid. It has a beautiful lobby and the gardens are superb. It is a piece of heaven near busy Cairo.

We recently stayed four nights at this one of a kind grand old hotel. The place rambles over 40 acres and is divided into new and old (dating from 1890s) sections. We started out in a great room with view in the new section but because of kids making a racket from 1 - 4 am in the wide hallways... More

The main reason for staying here is the history and the location, about an hour's drive from the airport (on the other side of Cairo) and literally across the road from the Giza pyramids. It is a very good heritage property and should be selected on that basis, because there are better hotels in Cairo. Service is excellent. Rooms are... More

This hotel is the closest hotel to the Giza pyramids. The main dining room and bar have a lovely view of the largest pyramid. The grounds are well maintained, with a tropical feel, the food is overpriced (about $20 for appetizers) but well prepared, and the setting is nearly perfect. Outside of the Mena house, it is easy to pick... More

I stayed here with my wife and we had a room that over looked the pyramids. There is something really amazing about waking up and seeing the great pyramids as you open the curtains. This is probably one of the best hotels in Cairo, not just for the character, as it's has so much history, but also for the bars... More
