We were thrilled by the ornate historic palace. A fairytale as' thousand and one night'! Impressive lobby and dining rooms. ' the most beautiful hotel throughout Cairo' say the tour operator suburb not free and 'if I my wife found, I want you to marry'. The hotel is outside cairos, directly at the giza pyramids. A plus, because it quiet than in the middle of the metropolis ( noise, traffic). However one imagines for the sightseeing in Metropolis-city ( for example egyptian museum, Nile, tarhir square) in the daily traffic. Doesn't matter, there is plenty of to be seen! The ... pyramids from the hotel see clearly. The staff are extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful - here are 5 * also 5 *. The room was modern and generous. We were very comfortable there. read hotel review

Every member of the ' the old days' searches, will find in Mena pants architecturally exactly. 'Palace' -in the old part of you get the feeling in the past, and so to travel presented also the whole hotel, in many details, as the old 'Grand hotel'. The combination with the old wing and modern hotel guests needs in Gartentrakt of the hotel we thought it was very well laid out. Restaurant and bar, with live bar-this music and excellent cocktails in the old wing a as a hotel guest the described above can soak up the atmosphere. The hotel is ... very well maintained and in an authentic oriental style, without being tacky. the stay garden wing fulfilled all expectations and the comfort of a five star hotel. We had a room with a pyramid view, the flair additional enormous support. it is not by, for example, that the Mena pants the leading 'Grand hotel' in Cairo and princes, politicians and celebrities for well over a century as a domicile is selected. read hotel review

The buffet was from the crowd, choice and quality clearly below average and the food offered is for European Stomachs only very difficult verdaubar, as extremely carbohydrate annoying. The à la carte food was through the band reasonable. However one has after a week all through and starts again. With the hygiene during the preparation we were never quite sure.

    The hotel lies at the end the main street for gizeh Platteau. In other words the pyramids you can on foot in 5 minutes reach. Just at a exit of the hotel right the road high, you're there. There is no hotel closer to the pyramids the MENA pants. Opposite the MENA house is a police station and a small Lden, in which you drinks can stock up on.

    Clean, relatively large and we had at least one dreamlike view... But as I already wrote above, we absolutely nothing and the hotel should have been almost empty. we were on the fourth floor (423 rooms?) and in my opinion these are the only 4-5 rooms (420-425), where you can see all 2 pyramids. On the third floor (probably 320-325) one had certainly seen the tall trees by garden in the first and second floor. See you probably nothing at all more. As the building in the you are arranged, one sees in the thigh opposite purely nothing at all of the pyramids.

    5 star hotel in the Egypt I must say, I was disappointed. There was a great diversity of food not exhilarating and the prices but steep. We were afterwards in Sal hasheesh (Hurghada) oberoi, as it was also not better. We are talking here about 10 main courses, which are only from lamb or fish, shrimps are. Of course, I do not expect pizza or Wiener schnitzel, but is lamb definitely not everyone's taste and 10 courts was no salad for everyone. I personally was just too poor.

    the hotel lies as only right next to the pyramids. Options for shopping there are certainly, but I believe none wants to dump out voluntarily-because it was really very dirty outside of the area. We booked the highlights of Giza, cost about 70 euros and on our time was tense situation in Cairo, we only stayed for two. At the Giza-pyramids were 10 tourist and 20 vendors. ' Schu crane', I can only say. ☺

We have chosen the hotel as a base for our cairo-stay. The hotel is still in remodeling phase. Impairments Had we but not like noise or dirt! The construction is due to a complex separated from the rest of the colored privacy. Our room were in the new wing with Pyramid view building. A view on the pool from the balcony you could only from second floor upwards catch. Still has the surcharge for the pyramid view well worth, since the side to the pyramids significantly more quiet than the street and the street noise is so good to hear ... nothing is. The very spacious room were clean and functional. Of particular quality can be no question, in my opinion. The service of all hotel staff is friendly and correct. We had the impression not, that service is expected also a tip. The food variety for breakfast was very good. It was for all tastes and preferences something for everyone. The quality of the food was in order. The old and original house boasts be historic ambience. During your drink in the hotel bar adopted, one has a very beautiful view on the Cheops pyramid. Unfortunately was during our stay, beautiful sun terrace with view on the the pyramids not open. The rates are for this category of hotel was adequate, but at the top end of the reasonable. Bottom line: those willing is for the unique location directly at the pyramids and Colonial style of this historical hotel to accept an extra charge, the is well cared for here. The new wing is spacious, has no relation to the historic old building! read hotel review

The price/performance ratio in this hotel is absolutely not. You pay for in this hotel, the counts to the least expensive hotels cairo, for the location to the pyramids. But it has not a place of the plant a view on the pyramids. The brochures pool with positively rated pyramids view does not more, instead, is built here, the new pool is large and clean, but no view. It is also the hotel's own golf course with Pyramid view not more, the whole area is a construction site. Also the room in the old building are currently being renovated. The ... new garden wing is large and tidy, but without charm. The breakfast is of poor quality appalling. It is no fresh eggs, the coffee is almost inedible. In addition you sit in a windowless room with no natural light. My tip: book for 2/3 of a first-class hotel in the city and a half days from flight to the pyramids. But they save the Mena house! read hotel review

A fantastic hotel, in a chaos of cairo and typically British. Classy, but with english always slightly kitschy imperial style. The 150 years you can see the extremely house not to. No miracle, was up 15 years ago it CA10 completely renovated and expanded. Our room were with Pyramid view booked, truly a fantastic view. The main advantage is the quiet, however, our room went into the hotel's own park with no traffic noise. Without the room pyramids view go direction pool area (very beautiful) but also towards a street with much traffic, therefore also. three restaurants, as well as ... a bar, reading room. ETA in accordance with european five stars. This hotel is in the oriental in Bangkok or style the raffles in Singapore. If you love style has it, if you don't want to do without it has. read hotel review
