Mena House is the great, colonial era hotel of Cairo, with an incomparable setting in the shadow of the pyramids at Giza, 10 miles from the city centre.

Amelia is here to help give you the inside track.

Built in the mid-19th century, this historic building was originally the hunting lodge of the Khedive of Egypt. Today's hotel, set in 40 acres of landscaped gardens, retains an air of old-world grandeur. The interiors are decorated in traditional style, with arabesque design and furnishings. Most of the rooms are housed in the Palace and Garden wings, those with views of the pyramids obviously being in strongest demand.

Facilities include a large outdoor pool, tennis courts, a gym and an 18-hole golf course right on the doorstep. Horse and camel riding is available at the stables, and the entrance to the Great Pyramids - the only surviving wonder of the ancient world - is just a few hundred metres away. A choice of several dining options includes garden and poolside restaurants and an excellent Indian restaurant open in the evenings. There are also two bars and a nightclub.

Why we love it

The Moghul Room is an outstanding Indian restaurant, and extremely popular as a result, so ask us to reserve you a table before you arrive.
