Couldn't go in and there were repairs going on when we went to visit. The kids did get a wave from one of the soldiers holding a huge gun which they thought was amazing !

The palace is in the Montazah Gardens and is a fantastic looking building, unfortunately we could not go inside as it was closed to the public,

Beautiful design and architecture but as others have mentioned the inside is closed for visitors. The property and grounds are scenic and still make it a worthwhile photo op.

This is a beautiful Palace and worth it if just to see it from the outside only. It is in the Montaza gardens at the end of the corniche . You can have lunch or a drink in the hotel . I am curious to see what it is like inside .

It is a historical place to see from outside as it is closed for visitors. The location at Montaza garden near five stars hotel, you can book few days in the hotel and enjoy the sandy beach and the green surrounding.

The Palace is beautiful but sadly we cannot enter it. Just walk across Al Montaza and corniche take photos outside the Palace and thats it.
