Fantastic views

Great views of the pyramids without facing the hoards of hassling Egyptians. Fantastic restaurant with tons of history.

Great location for seeing the pyramids. The hotel itself is nothing to write home about but does have a fantastic history. We really enjoyed the Indian restaurant in the hotel one evening.

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.

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.
