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
- Golf Course
- Parking On Site

How to Get There
We had a 2 night stay at the Mena house and Cairo and we have mixed feelings.
We have to say that the biggest disappointment was the food at the 139 restaurant. The breakfast buffet was awful and nothing was fresh. The restaurant itself was also not very clean and it took a while for dirty tables to be cleared. Some of the staff was great, however others would simply ignore you as you walked by, not what were used to in a Marriott Bonvoy property.
Our room was nice, big sized, however we had an any problem and there were ants everywhere ! We had to request it to be cleaned twice. The housekeeping was very nice though and did try their best to make sure we were ok.
All in all, if you’re staying at this hotel, it is for the view. Do not expect 5 stars and you’ll be fine.
We do want to thank the staff who did try and do what they could to make our stay enjoyable.
Receiving pre arrival email I knew this hotel would care marriott members, upgrade to a corner junior suite which is really nice probably the best room we had in egypt as everything is new, thank for GM Omar hand written card to me to welcome me to cairo, receiving desert as welcome gift , the guest relationship team is really taking care of marriott elite member and keep it up !
Mena House is an excellent place to stay! The staff will go above and beyond to help you. The service is excellent. The food is amazing! You can dine with an amazing view of pyramids! I wish the pool was on the pyramid side but I guess they might have something in mind. The historic wing is not open but hopefully soon before my second visit it will be open.
