The complex consists of 2 buildings, the Mena Garden and the Palace wing. Although the hotel generally boasts a classical style, the Mena Garden part is a little more modern than the older Palace wing. The latter is laden with history and its rooms boast views of the pyramids. The hotel has a total of 532 guest rooms and those that do not look out over the pyramids have views of the hotel's beautiful gardens.
If you aren't lucky enough to have a view of the pyramids from your room, you can certainly see them from other parts of the hotel, such as the pool, one of the restaurants, and the golf course. Indeed, enjoying a dip in the beautiful swimming pool surrounded by flowers and greenery is a wonderful experience. There is also a small children's pool at the hotel. With regards to restaurant services, guests can sample various flavours from around the world, including French, Italian, Indian, and Egyptian cuisine. All of the restaurants are located on the second floor. As far as we're concerned, the only letdown is the well-being centre, where you won't find a spa, or even a jacuzzi, but merely a small gym with a few outdated pieces of equipment - not what you would expect of a 5 star hotel of this calibre. If you do want to partake in some sport, though, and you like your golf, you're in luck! The hotel boasts a superb golf course, complete with views of the pyramids, where you can enjoy a few rounds in sheer luxury! This isn't the only green area around the establishment though, as there are also thousands of square metres of wonderful lawns and gardens, bursting with trees and flowers in every colour you could imagine!There is also a disco, some shops where you can pick up a few souvenirs of your holiday in Cairo, and a bank that is open 24 hours a day.
