The Mena House is an elegant hotel, opened in 1869 and formerly a royal hunting lodge. Luxuriously furnished with arabesque furniture, carved brass-bound doors and fine antiques, it is an oasis of calm set in 40 acres of jasmine-scented gardens.
Here's what the Guardian's Travel Section wrote recently about The Mena House:
"This hotel is so close to the Pyramids you feel the million-plus stone blocks piled into triangular perfection were a secondary project to the Mena House's jasmine gardens and cabana-lined pools. Still, this means the balcony views are spectacular and it's only a 15-minute walk back to the cool of your room after a day's sightseeing"
