Quiet place with friendly staff. The reason why Mena house: it's full of history. I like old pictures all over the hotel and their special atmosphere... More

This place is like an oasis in Cairo. The views of the Pyramids are breathtaking. The food is really tasteful. The price is not expensive.

Obviously, the location is on point for the pyramids, sphinx, and I would say a short day trip to saqqara. It's grounds boast views of the pyramids. You can get a pyramid view room, which is what we had so you can hang out and see the pyramids from your room. It's location is right at the entrance to the... More

This is our second time at Mena House , enjoyed it very much it feels like living in a fancy castle. Food is great and tasty. Old staff are very well trained and super friendly, new staff are a miss fit in this luxury hotel . Hopefully the new management "Marriott" will take care of this once they take over... More

On the positive side: Access to pyramid site could not be better and of course the hotel is a bit of living history. Also there were problems at first like key cards that consistently failed etc. but in the end reception compensated me so at least they were responsive to complaints ---eventually. On the negative side: The hotel has gone... More

Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cairo when your room and terrace overlook the pyramid. Clean, modern and overwhelming view!

We all need the Mena House needs a bit of an update, but our room was fine and the service outstanding. The location is one of the best anywhere, as you are right at the base of the Great Pyramid. Be sure to upgrade to a Pyramid View Room, as the other view is of a gas station. Wifi in... More
