Waking up to a view of the Great Pyramids was incredible. It was exactly the sort of excitement I was hoping to experience on my first days into the trip. Needless to say I woke up early and I just lay in bed for a while, enjoying the view. I had a decision to make. Was I going to venture out of the hotel to see the pyramids up close? And more …
According to 'Tales of 1,001 Nights', if you haven't seen Cairo, you haven't seen the world. Which is pretty much the reason I wanted to start my trip at the iconic Great Pyramids of Egypt. Recent events obviously made it a bit tricky to decide whether or not to go through with my visit, but given the alternative (spending the night at Cairo …
Our Swissair flight continues across the Mediterranean Sea. We fly over Crete and then on to the Nile Delta. Over the Delta, we hit a sand storm that reduces visibility to zero. We arrive in Cairo on time (2:45 P.M.) despite the sand storm.
As we taxi to the International Terminal at Cairo International Airport I notice that our Swiss Air …
My flight to Cairo was pretty uneventful (although it was interesting that Egypt Air brings you a tray of food to select from for lunch). When I reached the arrivals hall, I had to pass through a phalanx of signs before finding the one with my name on it. It was nuts with people yelling and waiving signs, motioning with hands and holding up babi...Cairo, Al Qāhirah, Egypt lawyerchick92
Some sad news came my way this week when my dad informed me that he had to put our almost 14 year old basset hound, Sally, to sleep this past Thursday. For those readers that have met my family, you know how important Sally was to us; she was known as my little sister and even had a place in all of our family photographs-- even though she always...Cairo, Egypt lacynoel

Historical Traveler Reviews Mena House Hotel Giza
I was somewhat worried after checking out this site but no need. We booked this hotel as we were intrigued by its history and it did not disappoint.
Beautiful, romantic, and unbelievable experience.
The Mena house was superlative in every way. I spent
New Year's 2005 ringing in the year while looking at
the sublime Pyramids from my balcony. The staff was on
the top of their game. I booked a day tour with their travel
office and was grant an incredible, very professional, kind
guide that gave me one of my favorite days in Cairo.
The breakfasts were wonderful. And while there, please try
the scrumptious wine from Alexandria.
My wife and I visited at the end of November 04. There is no doubt that the view of the Pyramids is breathtaking - but the truth is it would be breathtaking if viewed from the back of a garden shed! We wanted a great hotel with a wonderful location - you spend time in the hotel, you only look at the location! We got fairly good hotel in a wonderful location.
The hotel is as beautiful as viewed in the brochures; stunning decor and the Palace building is very elegant and certainly measures up to a 5 star resort. The service is 5 star and the Egyptian people are extremely friendly and will not allow you to lift a finger - ideal for a relaxing luxurious get away. This includes perfect room/ pool service - you really do feel pampered by the staff.
Your experience here totally depends on which room you are allocated.
This hotel is the most luxurious thing you'll ever experience. It used to be a Palace, so you can imagine. Its best feature is that it's right beside the pyramids. You can see them from everywhere. The food wasn't that great. And we didn't get a room like the ones seen on the pictures. Ours was quite austere and dirty. But maybe they have changed. Anyway, it's a great place to stay at.
My wife and I stayed here for five nights in Sep 2004 and cannot express how disappointing it has been. Had we not already prepaid everything under a flight and hotel package, we would certainly have packed up and left for another hotel.
Stayed for 5 nights in October 2003, in a Suite in the Palace section that opened into the gardens right next to the pyramids. The view was fantastic, spoiled slightly by the busy road leading up to the pyramids. The service was first class and the food exceptionally cheap and delicious. The pool area is spotless as is the rest of the hotel. Would definately recommend this hotel and would advise lots of change for tipping the very eager to please staff.
Stayed here in July 2004 as part of a Trafalgar Best of Egypt Tour. Everything about this hotel is first rate and you are literally a stone's throw from the pyramids. The rooms are large and well appointed, the grounds are beautiful and all other facilities cannot be faulted. Just be prepared to pay through the nose for alcohol. You might get a rude shock if you don't ask the price first. Food, however is very reasonably priced and there are a number of restaurants to choose from. Highly recommended!
My wife and I stayed at the Mena House Oberoi for one night as part of our 3 day cruise to egypt from cyprus.
This certainly is a top drawer hotel.
The rooms are gorgeous and the service 2nd to none.Our room ahd a balcony looking out at the pyramids,it was a breathtaking view.
We ate 2 meals there and the food was excellent never got to try the pool or other amenites but it is a fantastic place to stay.
