Editorial review:

This hotel is a former royal hunting palace and is more than 100 years old. While swimming, you can look at the pyramids. There are 40 acres of gorgeous grounds next to a golf course overlooked by the Sphinx. Some critics thought the rooms were somewhat worn down, but others felt that the incredible views more than made up for it. There is a great Indian restaurant as well.

          Friendliness and courtesy of Staff

          Taking away of passport and credit cards in order to make photocopies (in a totally separate area of the hotel). There was no explanation given, the documents simply disappeared for several minutes. This procedure is most unfriendly and can be the cause of frauds. Having given both passport number and credit card number at the time of booking, what possible additional protection does the taking of photocopoies provide to the hotel?. . If they insist on doing it then at least provide the Reception desk with a small photocopying machine to facilitate the process and for the cardholder to see what is being done

          We stayed at a suite of Mena House Palace (old wing of hotel). Great preservation of a 100+ years old original luxury hotel, together with the great staff who treat you like king made perfect combination.

        • Single

          The staff were amazing, the facilities were astounding, and the views were breathtaking. The people seem to anticipate your needs, always ready to help or take care of anything with a smile (and a 10% service charge, of course!). The hotel is pricey, but soooo worth it.

          The main restaurant menu is a little tasteless. The portions are much too large

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          A great, historic hotel in the grand old style, Mena House is a place with character. A destination in its own right, the hotel's location at the foot of the Great Pyramid in Giza is simply spectacular. The staff is attentive and kind without being intrusive and the smiles are genuine and welcoming. This is truly a place to savor and the only place to stay when visiting the pyramids.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The structure, decoration and room, the personnel, the pool, the unforgettable view.

          more efforts should be done for energy savings (all lights switched on in the evening service, change of towels only if customer signals it). The WIFI costs could be reviewed, they seem very high (150 pounds/day).

          I have travelled to different places around the world, none as good as Mena. The staff, the venue, everything about it was so fantastic and we did not want to leave. We will be back one day.

          It was a privalige to stay at The Meena House. It was as if we had travelled back in time, a time when service, respect and courtesy still metters. We loved the property, location, food, rooms, facilities and the team. Thank you all so much

          We had a fantastic view of the Pyramids from our room. The room itself was lovely as were the restaurants and bars. The Hotel Staff were very friendly and attentive and went out of our way to make our short stay a great experience. I can't speak highly enough of their excellent service and would love to return to this hotel again.

          One bar was unfortunately shut during our stay, because of the reduced number of visitors due to the ongoing political situation. Apart from that everything was excellent.

          Mena House was a great stay for us. From the moment we booked our room to the time we checked out the hotel and its staff were excellent. We were lucky to get an upgrade of rooms. The location is fantastic..you can walk out of hotel and up the hill and you are at the pyramids. A room with the the pyramid view is worth the extra money..it is nice to just sit and look at one of the seven wonders of the world from your balcony!

        • Couple
          5.0

          We liked very little. The view of the pyramids is the only redeeming feature. The main building is old and the rooms are gloomy and dusty. The new buildings have no character and the rooms are furnished with second rate furniture. Overall I give it a low rating. We left after 1 night and went to the 4 seasons. Only worth going for one night if you have little time and want to see the pyramids

        • Single
          10.0

          The main attraction is the location ie the view, the staff is very friendly and professional, excellent hotel that is exceptional because of this location

          The breakfast is not entirely as what one would expect in such an hotel, there are perhaps too many staff members in the restaurants and their attendance to the guests is sometimes too frequent, expansion and renovation works cause some nuisance and noise

          We were upgraded to a presidential suite as they said there was a problem with our booking. Only one night was requested by Booked.net but we actually had booked 2 nights. It was not an issue, because the hotel was not busy. The room was very nice!

        • Single

          All hotel staffs are very friendly and kind.

          Under building construction Not so clouded because of Egypt situation....

          Location and nice staff.

          not much value for money. mismatch with Booked.net info. They were arguing i had booked for 2 nights while we booked only for only 1 night. I have to prove them by showing my mobile. They took my printout at check-in and never returned back.
