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

Mena House is really good for a short stay, specially if it is business. It is also one of the best destination for meetings and conferences. Staff are friendly, and the place is having a very good taste of old Egyptian hotels.
