Best resort to stay at while in Giza. Service excellent, resort amazing, pool fantastically clean, rooms clean, well appointed, hot shower never ending. Place was very well maintained, grounds are beautiful. Not one bad thing to say, and I mean not one

VERY close to the pyramids. Great value. Wonderful staff. The grounds were well maintained, beautiful pool areas. The view of the pyramids was particularly impressive. Buffet breakfast was adequate with a very nice staff.

Returned last night from Egypt and a stay at Mena House. Because of the proximity to Pyramids is probably why it was chosen. Public rooms are gorgeous. Guest rooms need major refurbishing. Carpet stained, chair fabric stained and dirty, drapes stained. 5 star hotel???? Don't think so. They are building a new wing which doesn't make sense since tourism is... More

This hotel has amazing gardens, great views, and super clean rooms. Mean house has old world charm and a beautiful staff. Located at the base of the pyramids, you can't beat the view. Unfortunately, the food here leaves MUCH to be desired. It is quite pricey and not good at all. We tried several different meals and restaurants on the... More

one of the best and oldest in this area, you feel like you went back in history to 1930 or something like old Cairo, people are good and friendly, hospitality are everywhere, i like the food so much and shisha is fine.

This historic Bunglow turned hotel is a great place and the only place you should be staying as it shares the boundary wall with the Giza Pyramids . Great food , and amazing views from the rooms and above all the hotel has a historic splendour .

It is an oasis of calm near the Pyramids. This old hotel has impeccable service and great food. We went for tea and had a romantic time sipping and looking at the pyramids and lush gardens.

Lovely hotel with view of the pyramids. The pool is fantastic, heated just enough to make it possible to swim all year round. The restaurant was great in the evening and so was room service. The breakfast was not as good, but still great for a B and B deal. Stayed in the newer part of the hotel, rooms were... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, it was simply the best and its history, it was a summer palace and then it was used as a hospital during the war, you can read it up on the net.
