Our stay included a buffet breakfast in their very nice restaurant. It has a very nice and well kept pool, which has wait staff. It has 3 restaurants (Egyptian,...

This hotel takes great care of you. The pool is AMAZING! 5 star service (for Cairo) not for the rest of the big cities like Barcelona or Miami. Very clean premises. Great staff that speaks ((broken, but understandable)) English. My shoe broke when I was there and in a snap someone was there to fix it. There was chocolate goodies...

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...

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.

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...

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...

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
