Since 1869, the Mena House has dazzled guests with its proximity to the pyramids at Giza. Situated on 40 acres of gardens, the Mena House is the closest site to the pyramids that visitors can spend the night, with the Great Pyramid less than half a mile away. The towering presence of the pyramids just outside provides one of the most impressive locations from which to enjoy a tour of the ancient wonders of Egypt.
The Mena House has been host to celebrities, political figures, and royalty since its establishment in the late nineteenth century. Its historical prominence and palatial elegance is complemented by exquisite embellishments including rich textiles, handcrafted furnishings, and remarkable antiques. Rooms and suites are housed in the Palace and Garden wings, and there are Cabana-style rooms by the swimming pool. Guests in the suites enjoy the privilege of twenty-four hour in room dining and private butler services. Many of the Superior rooms and all of the Deluxe rooms have private balconies, and guests can choose from garden or pyramid views. The Executive suites feature separate living rooms and bedrooms, and each is uniquely appointed with arabesque furnishings, original art, and antique Persian rugs. The Deluxe suites include a dining room, and the rich individual décor makes each stand out separately from the others. The richly adorned Presidential suites have large private terraces overlooking the pyramids, providing breathtaking views not available anywhere else.
Dining is an important part of the experience at Mena House, and each of the hotel’s unique dining establishments offers an exciting atmosphere and exquisite selection. The Al Rubayyat offers gourmet Continental cuisine, while the twenty-four hour Khan El Khalili features a varied international menu from a location overlooking the pyramids. The Moghul Room is Cairo’s most celebrated Indian restaurant, and at the Sultan Lounge, guests can enjoy cocktails with a stunning panoramic view of the pyramids. Abu Nawas is the hotel’s night club, where guests can enjoy international cuisine and live entertainment through the evening.
The Mena House is the only hotel in Cairo that features its own golf course, and for those fitness-conscious guests, there is a twenty-four hour mini-gym with free equipment use, an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by lush gardens, and a jogging track. The concierge will also be glad to arrange a horseback or camel ride to the pyramids for guests looking to add an extra touch of romance to their experience.Request Information
