One of the most famous hotels in the Middle East, the 486-room Mena House fuses two modern wings with a former royal hunting lodge built in 1869. Situated among 40 acres of gardens, the hotel is a mere 770 yards from the foot of the Great Pyramid of Khufu, perhaps the most coveted location in all of Greater Cairo. Agatha Christie, Charlie Chaplin, and Winston Churchill stayed here, while contemporary celebrities such as Ricky Martin continue to come for the breathtaking views, not just from guest rooms, but also from the swimming pool and private 18-hole golf course. Oberoi is an Indian-owned chain, and the hotel's ornate Moghul Room has the best Indian food in Egypt. More traditional Continental dishes are served at the opulent Al Rubayyat, whose window tables are perennially occupied by tour groups at lunchtime. Be aware that only 34 rooms in the historic and much coveted hunting lodge offer the world-famous views and so must be booked far in advance.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2006, 2005
