Lonely Planet review

Built in 1869 as Khedive Ismail’s hunting lodge, Mena House dazzles with intricate gold decoration and air that perpetually smells of jasmine. The grandest palace-wing rooms are borderline-kitschy Arabian Nights style, with whimsical tapestry bedspreads and opulent mirrors. Rooms in the garden wing are more typically modern. The swimming pool is suitably capacious.

Our independent authors have visited Mena House Hotel (Formerly Mena House Oberoi) and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Greater Cairo.
