Mena House Hotel (Formerly Mena House Oberoi)
Lonely Planet review
Built in 1869 as Khedive Ismail’s hunting lodge, the stately Mena House offers two time warps in one: the public areas sport dazzling Islamic decoration and perpetually smell of jasmine, but the grandest palace-wing rooms are Arabian Nights, with whimsical tapestry bedspreads and opulent mirrors. You really have to go for a Pyramids view in the palace wing as rooms in the new garden wing are dully modern. The swimming pool is suitably capacious.
