Before I start, let me make clear that I did not stay in the hotel. We went there because multiple travel guides and websites recommend the private beach of the hotel to western tourists, stating that it is accessible for a fee and it is nice place to be in female company (read: no burkini required, and no annoying guys)....

Very well located within the Montazah gardens, just close to the palace offering stunning views of the gardens, sea and palace. The hotel is old dating back to the sixties but well maintained, The open buffet is full of choices and quality is just above average. Food is a bit overpriced. Front desk staff and waiters are lacking experience and... More

A nice hotel but old .. Hosted the Arab League meeting in 1964. It is inside Montaza Palace who used to be for the former King of Egypt. Excellent atmosphere and nice natural view of gardens and Mediterranean Sea. The service is ok and the food is good. You can enjoy the pool or the sea beach. Perfect place to... More

I really didn't feel like i was in a 5 star hotel. The wow factor was just missing probably because the hotel itself felt old but still well maintained. My double bed room was cleaned daily, was spacious enough for me and my family. It has an excellent view of the sea and the swimming pool; a very refreshing view... More

This hotel is very authentic, with all the history of the palace and the places nearby is overwhelming. The rooms are very clean, decently sized and with excellent views. You may think the decors are a little outdated, yet I found this a plus, as it keeps you in the authentic mood. Relax in the surrounding acres of welcoming greenery... More

2 nights here. The rooms are decently sized, however that's about as far as you could go with them. The decor is very dated, and not the comfiest bed going. The brekky is decent, the service is pretty good. Good shisha bar just on the water that it's attached to the hotel.

The location is excellent… and this is the only advantage. The variety of breakfast buffet was ok but the quality of the food was bad. The room’s view is magical but the room is very poorly furnished. Rooms need renovation. It doesn't feel like a 5 starts hotel at all. Overpriced and overrated.
