If this is your first visit to Cairo (and its not for business) then the Mena House Hotel is a sure bet. The hotel is adjacent to the pyramids and the views as well as its proximity can't be beat. The pool is nice, the restaurants are affordable and terrific with great service and most are in historic rooms. I...

We had a split stay before and after visiting Aswan and Luxor. Our first was a two night stay in room #176, ground floor with balcony showing the Pyramids. The second stay was on second floor room #386, which with it's balconies had a little better view of the Pyramids, but both rooms were very nice and plenty of room...

This was the highlight to my Cairo trip! Excellent hotel with excellent views and location. The staff is helpful and trustworthy unlike the hustlers outside. The service is great, the restaurants are top notch. A bit pricey I agree for Cairo, but was worth it for me since I was a solo female traveler. I give this 4 stars only...

Just stayed in this hotel in May 2016. This is historic hotel (Winston Churchill stayed here) and it is very well maintained and secure! It is literally next door to the pyramids, which is nice. There is wifi in the common areas but not in the rooms, which is kind of annoying. Also, the A/C in the room wasn't great,...

This a very wonderful hotel. We stayed in one of the more economical rooms, which could have used some updating. I expect I would have given 5 stars in a better room, because everything else about the Mena House was the best. We had a view of the pyramids from our room as well as from the restaurant terrace where...

Landscapes and good pictures! Natural and colorful landscapes are found there. The hotel is very old but very clean and authentic. Food is good but expensive. Service, cleanliness and location are great. Neat to historic sites (pyramided). Use uber for transportation for best price.
