We just had a wonderful 3-night stay at Mena House Hotel. This hotel is literally next door to the Giza pyramids and offer unparalleled views of the pyramids from the grounds and even from some of their rooms. The hotel has extremely tight security: armed guards, barricades, explosive-sniffing dogs, metal detectors to get to the lobby, but that doesn't take...

One of the great hotels of the world. Mena House has history, excellent service, the beauty of the area and great food. If you want the "pyramid experience" this is your place. My husband celebrated his 60th birthday by going to Egypt and to wake up and see the pyramids made it complete.

I live in Cairo, and have visited the pyramids, but I wanted to just soak up the historic atmosphere for 24 hours. Mena House was everything I wanted. Quiet, lovely, friendly service, green grass, trees and the most amazing views. The food is good, the pool and health spa are fun and nothing was too much trouble for the staff....

We have stayed in Mena House before and we're impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the excellent amenities.

Mena House offers several rooms which have spectacular views of the pyramids. The views and the grounds are lovely. The architecture and basic interior design is superb. However, while it is awaiting its overhaul by Marriott, its amenities are going downhill - broken hairdryer, shower not working, etc. The food is just average. Bring your swimsuit. There is a wonderful...
