All cars are checked when entering: with mirrors while a big dog is watching you. There is even a guard when entering one of the other buildings. No risks. Frontdesk (and all staff) is very polite and helpful and they even offer you a welkcom drink: the local carcadeh (delicous). All rooms are spacious and very clean. Food is more... More

What a great Hotel. I have been coming to Cairo on business since 2002 and have stayed in many good and several bad hotels. But the Mena House is a joy. With Room views over the pyramids and a history back to 1860 it sits as a jewel in the otherwise depressed area of Giza.

Its the best property you shall find if you truly desire to experience the High Powered Energy of the Pyramids. You can see the Pyramids from your room, so select the right view room. Delightful trails to walk on within the hotel. Staff is so polite and helpful that you feel at home. Food is delicious. Housekeeping is top class.... More

We stayed here for three nights on the Cairo portion of our honeymoon. We stayed in a beautiful room with breathtaking views of the pyramids from our balcony. There's a few restaurants, but we only ate at the one where breakfast is held as well. The prices were fairly high for the food quality, but where else will you dine... More

The Mena House is a very good hotel. It has the local flavor and location you would want in a tourism hotel, plus good food and clean rooms. You really can't beat eating breakfast with the Pyramids as a backdrop. Two suggestions: 1) the complex is large; take advantage of the friendly golf carts to shuttle you around. 2) There... More

Beautiful grounds and very close to the pyramids. Pretty much the only option I would choose. Cairo and surrounding areas are rough. No wifi in the rooms and some staff is helpful some not (no English) don't be put off by all the guards everywhere. The 24hr restaurant is good.

Nice authentic hotel. Food is terrible. Rooms spacious and clean. Staff are friendly but overpriced. No play area for kids. Nice greenery. I would recommend for one day. Also on a Friday as it is one of the most crowded place in Cairo

This is a beautiful hotel that is top class and has green, lush landscaping and beautiful fountains. Historic and newly expanded and upgraded. It is best of Cairo and in Giza so close to the Great Pyramids. Food is excellent, with a large breakfast that has huge selection. Visited twice, both times on tours.

I am American female traveler who stayed here solo for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! I felt very safe and comfortable while at the property. For me, it was truly a dream come true to sit on my balcony, enjoy a glass of wine and observe the pyramids...absolutely breathtaking! I had to change my reservation, and didn't know I... More
