This property is classic!! WOW. You enter the lobby and you've got the gilded appearance. The bar? The same. There is a fantastic Indian restaurant.......so great. And then.....the hotel! This is an aging beauty, okay? You are going to hold hands with an actress who was once so beautiful, but she is showing her age. This doesn't make it a... More

Originally used to be the rest house of Khedive Ismail for him and his companions while hunting in desert around Giza pyramids in 1860s. However, this place was eventually prepared for guests at the inaugural celebrations for the Suez Canal. Later this house was sold to the private couple, who gave it its name – Mena – after first pharaoh... More

This review is another of the "better late than never" variety. Hopefully, despite the political meltdown in Egypt, the Mena House remains the same. We stayed one night in April, 2013 as part of an two day tour from Alexandria and if I ever return to Egypt the Mena House will be on my must do list. Our spacious and... More

So I have to be honest, I've never been to Egypt before however I have been to other North African countries such as Morocco and Tunisia so culturally I thought I knew what to expect. However it is very very different. The moment my friend and I tried to leave the hotel just to walk around the area, try to... More

This review is a little late, better late than never, huh? I was at the Mean House Hotel back in the first week in April, 2014. In all honesty, I would have never booked this hotel in a thousand years. Memphis Tours booked it for me. My guess is Memphis Tours has a special rate with the Mean House. I'm... More

You will get no better view from a hotel than the one a pyramid facing room gives at the mena house hotel, a real mix of modern meets old. The food was excellent, the staff could'nt be more helpful and friendly, all in all, a wonderful place to stay!!
