Pyramids and the Nile 2 - Accommodations
We’ll spend the first 3 nights in Cairo at the exclusive Mena House Hotel. The hotel is beautifully set in its own landscaped gardens in a time-honored location, overlooking the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids, one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World and only twenty minutes from Cairo’s city center. Built as a hunting lodge and base for exploring the pyramids by Khedive Ismail, a 19th century Egyptian ruler, Mena House was patronized in the early days by international royalty and high society, a trend that continued after its conversion to a hotel. Churchill and Roosevelt met here to plan the D-Day invasions, and there are suites in their names to commemorate the event. The hotel’s amenities include a pool, a spa and a fully equipped health and fitness center. The hotel’s restaurants and bars provide a variety of international and local cuisine. With modern luxury in mind, the state of the art rooms are generously sized, offering the latest in-room facilities and services. Each bright room features a private balcony, A/C, complimentary WiFi, LCD TV, in-room safe, a minibar, coffee and tea making service, and complimentary bottled water. The marble bathrooms include hair dryers, robes, slippers, and Italian toiletries.
