This is a lovely historic hotel with great views of the Pyramids. The room I had was not very clean though and there is no free Wifi in the rooms. Wifi is only available in the reception area which is about 4-5min walk from most rooms. Vegans take note as the pillows are down filled but you can request an...

Hotel was amazing and historic. It was freezing during my stay but I had no idea that it would be cold during the day! Awesome location in proximity to the pyramids of Egypt. Staff was friendly and helpful and they will even provide tours of the hotel. Great stay and would highly recommend.

If you're visiting the pyramids of Giza, then there really is no better place to stay; it's right on their doorstep, you could walk to them if it wasn't for all the street hustlers along the way. The grounds are stunning, winding paths cut through palm trees and fountains. The rooms are clean, stylish and comfortable. I stayed in a...

First I was promised a pyramid view room. In writing I had that information. Instead I received a room next to the noisy road. When I complained, I had to stand in reception like an animal for 2 hours waiting for another room to be allocated. The next room was away from the road but still a total dive. It...

The hotel is a historic place and being close to the pyramids, is a sought after location for tourists to Cairo who are not on a budget. Armed security personnel, bomb detectors, sniffer dogs, are located at the entrance to the grounds of hotel.

We arrived late at night and could barely make out the pyramids from our rooms balcony. This left us having trouble sleeping because we were so excited to see what the Mena House had in store for us. We were not disappointed!!! The pyramids towered above us in the morning sun and left us in awe throughout the day. If...

We loved this hotel. It was modern enough but had the charm of an old hotel. Staff were excellent and took care of us whenever we needed something.
