The hotel is very close to the pyramids and we had a view of the pyramids from our room balcony. The property is huge and the rooms are quite a walk from the reception area. The entire property looked clean and maintained. Rooms are good, clean and well maintained. Breakfast was a huge spread and very good. The hotel had... More

I really can't put into words how much I enjoyed my three night stay at the Mena House Hotel, but I'll do my best. It really is an oasis of calm in what is the whirlwind of Cairo. For me, the location was excellent, as I was out in Giza and Sakkara most of the time. If you want to... More

I went with my son for his graduation from college gift. The views from the hotel/rooms of pyramid were amazing! The staff was super friendly and being from the US I felt really safe there. The hotel is an hour from airport so it's kind of out by itself but pretty cool that you can walk to pyramids. Be careful... More

It is only short distance from the pyramids. Very good service and helpful staff. In addition to the modern rooms, the old building has very expensive luxury suits with huge space. We liked it very much.

I suspect this was a wonderful hotel before the new wing was built. It's still very good but has a more corporate feel now, with the Oberoi branding reminding me of their hotel in Agra. That one has a view of the Taj Mahal, this has the great pyramids. Personally I prefer the former although having one of the wonders... More

Mena House was originally built in 1869 by the Khedive Ismail as a country hunting lodge. It was converted to a hotel for westerners visiting the Pyramids in 1890 and has been the go to place ever since. Today it features a new “palace wing” that greatly expanded its capacity, but the original building, which is wonderfully ornate is the... More

Are there any other hotels where your concierge will apologise for an evening mist obscuring the Great Pyramid from your balcony? I have stayed twice at the Mena over the years and it is unreservedly the best hotel I have ever stayed in - so far. Unbeatable view over the pyramids, which are only a jaunty camel ride away and...

Nothing can compare with waking up and pulling aside the curtains to see the pyramids dominating the horizon. But on top of that the hotel was supremely comfortable, great service and a wonderful restaurant. A great experience

We had room 464 in the Modern wing which gave us a view of the pyramids from the balcony, at an angle but felt like a business hotel.When we were there in mid-February the weather was quite cold and it even rained, which we were told does not happen much at all. This would not have bothered us too much... More
