We spent one night there with family members. Overall we had a good time. Rooms are nice and clean. Staff are very friendly but they seem to be overwhelmed having many guests. At dinner, we had to wait for more than 30 minutes to be even served soup. I had to complain to management. Staff were very apologetic and tried... More

I stayed there with my family. The kids had fun in the pool and the kids area. The lake view is awesome. The hotel is very old and needs maintenance e.g. The bathroom door lock was not working, the room door clasp was broken. The breakfast buffet was limited but the food was ok. The pool was nice but the... More

Overall the facilities are not so up-to-date considering it is a self-declared 5 star hotels, the room we stay is not isolated with the neighbour one, so we had to experience a night with loud speaker, late tv, and noxious cigarette smoke. Merits? Yes, the swimming pool is nice and you can enjoy a beautiful sunset in a casually relaxing... More

Such a great place for some calm days to relieve stress! I was there only one day, but I still remember it as one of the best days in my life. And beds were sooo big, it was awesome to sleep on it! Mixed European-Egyptian breakfast was as I liked. Want to come back theeere!!!

The hotel has an interesting history. Common parts are spacious. Food was good and possibly aimed at Egyptians who were most of the guests - portions were very large and I have noticed that Egyptians have no qualms leaving food on their plates. Some of the modern parts of the hotel are poor quality, the pool was freezing and sound... More

Originally a hunt mansion of King Faruq of Egypt built in 1937, the place is now a struggling 5 stars (?) decadent hotel. The original parts of the palace are the main value. Lake view is generally poor and all the new facilities built are of a much lower quality than the rest of the hotel (bad ceramic vs. marble,... More
