Mena House Oberoi lies in the shadow of one of the wonders of the world, the
Great Pyramids at Giza. Surrounded by 40 acres of scented gardens, this historic palace hotel is only 700 meters from the towering Pyramid of Cheops. The hotel was built in 1869 and since that time has
been welcoming visitors to Cairo, drawn here by the rich heritage of mosques, churches and temples. Modern Cairo is an exciting and vibrant place, bustling alongside its priceless heritage of art and
The old Palace of Mena House has exquisitely crafted interiors in traditional
style with filigree fretwork and intricately carved panelling, fine murals, gilding, inlaid mother-of-pearl and handcrafted mosaic tiles. Furnished with original works of art and antiques, the interior
is that of a royal residence not a hotel.
Outside, the palace blends into its historical setting with its towers, domes, minarets and colonnades set
among palms, bougainvillea and jasmine - an oasis of luxury in the desert landscape.
Cairo Airport services both international and domestic airlines. Airport and rail station pick-ups can be
arranged. Cairo is three hours' drive from Alexandria.
