Mena House Hotel
What We Love
- Mena House Hotel is nine miles but a world away from noisy, traffic-filled Cairo
- The food at the hotel’s three restaurants is varied and is some of the best in the Cairo area
- The hotel can book you a car and bilingual guide so you can get around faster and learn more than you would with just a guidebook
- Get to the pyramids early in the day, because they get very crowded, no matter the time of year
What To Know
- Dress appropriately when visiting Islamic monuments – no shorts or vest tops, and women should cover their heads in mosques
- The hotel is just nine miles from downtown, but it can take 40 minutes to get there
- Free WiFi

How to Get There
we stayed with two other couples recently. The hotel is superb with comfortable and spacious rooms. Ideal located near to Pyramids. It was such a great feeling to take breakfast and watch Pyramid from the dining space. It made our morning!!
The food is superb and we could get some excellent Indian food. In the dining room, Mr Gamal( I hope, I remember the name correctly) was very helpful and courteous.
I think all restaurant staff should be conversant with the basic English conversational skills. This was a handicap.
Overall, an excellent experience.
Couldn't be much closer to why you came to Giza Hotel staff is great, golf carts are a little tired they use to get you around. Property is spread out so be prepared to walk a little. There are two restaurants but one is most accessible. Food is just OK to poor but you will not have much to choose from. Not much outside the entrance and don't recommenced walking outside the property. We were in smoke most days due to neighbors burning trash.
You can stay very close to the pyramid and still enjoy some solice. This hotel is highly recommended but be ready to endure some noise pollution since it’s is so close to Giza and Cairo is always noisy.
However, ability to see pyramid every morning, evening is probably enough reason to be here.
The restaurant inside is decent too, I would go for their Egyptian menu, the western was so so. So is their coffee, but then you cannot get good coffee in Cairo anyway.
This was the first place our tour stayed in Egypt. It was just so beautiful, luxurious and historic. Everything about it is amazing, especially the views - the pyramids are just right there. The food was also great. We didn’t use the pool but it looked amazing - definitely bring your swimsuit. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
The Marriott Mena House is an excellent hotel in the absolute best location. I had a garden view room which was very nice. It overlooked the back garden and reflection pool. At times I could hear the traffic from the near by street if I was outside on the balcony, but when the doors are closed you do not hear a thing. The rooms are very large room and clean. Have breakfast outside on the restaurant patio and you will have a great view of the Pyramids. Really an unforgettable experience.
