If you haven't visited Cairo before, I would recommend splitting your time in Cairo as a tourist between a hotel downtown (near the museum), and the Mena House Hotel, overlooking the Great Pyramids of Giza. The Mena House is among the three most historic hotels in the country, and at present it's quite easy to book rooms with excellent views.... More

Such a fabulous hotel. My husband and I stayed there for two nights and only wish we had stayed another to make use of the facilities. We arrived very late the first evening so the bar man rang up to the restaurant to see if we could have a sandwich or something and the message back was they would keep... More

I think The Mena House is your best option when visiting the Pyramids. The view from your room takes your breath away all day. Fantastic staff and beautiful grounds. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here but with a small caveat. The rooms seem to be falling a little and don't match a 5 star hotel. I even tried to upgrade... More

I had wanted to stay here for a long time because of its history and location. First impressions were one of mediocre. The reception area is very dark and has a very 1970's feel, lots of orange mirrors and brass. The Reception staff were friendly and efficient and check in was done within 5 minutes. We were surprised at how... More

This is a hidden gem in Giza. I say hidden b/c most of us visiting Cairo or Giza have no idea where to stay. For all the hotels that claim to have views of the Pyramids - the Mena House Hotel is the only one that is actually AT the Pyramids. It's also an AMAZING hotel with large rooms and... More

We purposely chose this hotel because of the slightly out of Cairo location (traffic and noise in Cairo are nuts!!!) but also due to the proximity to the Great Pyramids of Giza. Room/Grounds: The room was clean, tidy and prepared for guests, yes the decor is a little tired, but it was not tatty in any way. The view from... More

Amazing location footsteps from the Pyramids. We chose it for a quiet location (edge of Giza and def not in central Cairo) but rooms were disappointingly noisy - could hear the traffic whizzing past on 3 lane highway right next door, and hooting, all night long. Different story in the main house and inner garden which was lovely and quiet,... More

This hotel has seen better days. It used to be operated by Oberoi, and then it was a lovely upscale hotel. Sadly, Oberoi has left and the hotel is showing its age. The initial room we were given had no functioning air conditioning and no bottled water or amenities for a guest. We called the front desk, someone who spoke... More
