Cairo and Giza are dirty urban sprawl cities gone wild, so staying at Mena house is a great respite from the city. About 200 feet, as a bird flies, from the great pyramids of Giza, about 1000-2000 feet by foot or car. This is the...More

This is one of the original hotels in Cairo - or what was on the outskirts of Cairo at the time - founded in the 1860's. Stayed here twice as a weekend break away from the chaos of where we live in Cairo. The gardens...More

Established by a precient Englishman in the 1860's, this now completely modernised hotel run by Marriot retains all of its relaxed but formal 'colonial' charm. Beautifully set around extensive gardens, the rooms can face directly onto the Pyramids ( request) but the real delight is...More

Loved staying in the old part of the hotel for 3 nights. Beautiful rooms. Busy restaurant and buffet breakfast - somewhat hit and miss, but generally pretty good. There had been a changeover to Marriot ownership the week before we arrived which resulted in some...More
