I have just spent a week at the Mena House Hotel, it was truly the holiday of a lifetime! The hotel is fantastic, they upgraded me from a pyramid view room to a suite and I had a week of luxury, room service is quick and efficient and I spent many a happy hour sitting on one of my two balconies sipping tea and just looking at the pyramids.
The rooms were kept spotlessly clean by cheerful staff who could not do too much for you, fresh flowers, fruit and a complementary daily paper helped to make me feel really spoilt. The restaurant service was exemplary and the food always delicious, I particularly enjoyed the breakfast experience with the company of the delightful breakfast ladies.
The garden and pool area are beautiful and clearly looked after with care and devotion, often the pool was empty and you felt you had the whole place to yourself!
The entire week was simply perfect paradise! I felt completely safe and looked after the whole time, my trips out were fun and the glimpses of another way of life fascinating. As a single woman you never quite know what to expect, but this was simply heaven and a holiday I will remember as the best ever.
It's expensive but you get more than your moneys worth, go to Egypt with complete confidence, I find it perfectly safe. Go to Giza and Cairo, be amazed at the past and the present. Stay at Mena House to be spoilt, pampered and refreshed. Thank you to all the amazing staff!!!
