Humbling in their size. Serene in their presence. Blissful knowing they will always be there. Man fears time. Time fears the pyramids.They never get tired . Looming over the 40 acre spectacular property antiquity stares anyone down. Ramses II's Look at my works ye mighty and dispair could just have easily said by Khufu. Man today would have a hard...

I scheduled a 32 hour layover, so that I could see the Pyramids. The Mena House provided a reasonable rate with views of the Great Pyramid, so I booked it. The Mena House scheduled a private tour for me the next morning, to accommodate my schedule, and again, the price was amazing. 8 am pick up, and we were at...

2 stones away from the pyramids (15 mins walk - i would recommend getting a taxi though) with an amazing view. Away from the city noise and pollution, well kept and nice staff, big and clean rooms. It was really hard to find a nice hotel in Cairo and this was perfect - discovered it actually has some history and...

I traveled to Egypt with my sister in October 2001 - which was just after the 9-11 incident. We had booked a regular room without Pyramid view, however, we were upgraded to a better room, because the tourism in Egypt was severely affected bat that time, so they had many cancellations. The view from our room was unbelievably overwhelming. The...

The hotel was very clean and had very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurants were delicious, and there's also a bank and several gift shops on the premises. It ciders a very big area and is amazing decorated, not surprising since it was a palace. My only complaint is that there is no WiFi in the rooms; you have to...

My family and I, spent four nights at the lovely Mena House Hotel, which surpassed my expectations. The hotel is beautiful, well appointed, spotlessly clean, good security, excellent service, beautiful restaurants, the food was great and the view is amazing. We spent the extra money and had pyramid view rooms, well worth it. The gardens are really nice and it...

This historic hotel is where U.S. Presidents and Prime Minister Churchill stayed. The historical section is closed for the next few years while it undergoes refurbishment lets hope that it is sensitive to its glorious past. A wing off the original lobby has suites only with large balconies. Most of the rooms are in the new (only 2 -3 yrs...

En route to South Africa, my wife and I had a 17-hour layover in Cairo and decided to visit the Mena House Hotel for breakfast prior to seeing the pyramids. We had stayed here 5 years ago when it was managed by the Oberoi Group and had an amazing time. The hotel was originally a hunting lodge built for King...
