The Mena Hotel in Cairo was really fantastic, as it is right up next to the pyramids and has shockingly nice views from breakfast, from the courtyards, and from any of the rooms. While my first night there was in a garden view room, I made the wise decision to upgrade to a 4th floor pyramid view room for the... More

Located at the Pyramids gate, this hotel is like a city, very romantic at night, you can sit and have a dinner by the pool then take a walk in the premises. Beware the beggars just outside the hotel. Hard to take a taxi.

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.

approaching the Mena House through its cordon of security was both a reassuring and challenging way to start our Egyptian adventure, but once thru the gauntlet the stay we had was a delight. The hotel is slightly raveling at the edges, but the staff assured us a renovation was forthcoming so I would look forward to polished gem in the... More

I want to start my review by saying that I stay in lots of hotels and rarely post reviews but I'm afraid our stay was so disappointing that I felt that I had no option. I lived in Egypt many years ago and the The Mena House was a magnificent oasis from the hustle and bustle of Cairo. Sadly, this... More

This hotel has a wonderful view of the pyramids. It was a bit surreal to stand outside the hotel and see the pyramids. On top of that the hotel is beautiful, the staff is so friendly, and the rooms are great. The breakfast buffet is delicious and the room it is served in is stunning. I highly recommend staying here.... More

This is THE location to stay at when touring the Pyramids. This hotel has history(!) and is very antique in it's decor/furniture, but not antique in it's service or amenities. It is not a dry hotel. It is ideally located just below the entrance to the Pyramids and only a short moderate walk uphill from the hotel entrance to the... More

The hotel was originally a lodge built for the king and converted to a hotel in the late 1800s, and is fabulous.

This hotel is in the very best location for visiting the Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza.....while you are technically in Cairo this is quite far from the downtown area. The hotel allows smoking in certain sections and the bar and parts of the restaurants.....which contributes, I think, to a general "down at the heels" feeling. The golf course and part... More
