It was not the first stay at Deira. We have stayed many times there, and at ither neighbouring hotels. Deira remains a favourite. Most stay for work purpose, naturally, since access to Gaza is practically impossible from north or south for regular visitors. The hotel has spacious airy light rooms. When you also have yo work, its great to be... More

Al Deira Hotel in Gaza is something of a classic, even though it isn't 20 years old. Built with a strong Moroccan theme throughout, it is charming. And the view of the sea from the restaurant terrace and some of the rooms simply cannot be beat. The staff are lovely, warm and welcoming. Service in the restaurant is slow -... More

The Al Deira is a favourite for journalists and some NGO folks as it is considered safe (e.g. from strikes as the Israelis have the coordinates and therefore do not target). That is important. The hotel itself is quite pricey, despite being in Gaza city, largely because of what I noted above. So firstly, we stayed in room 13 which... More

Beautiful accommodation quarter and a lovely, roomy restaurant well-visited by the locals. Excellent, generous food of high standard. The spicy dishes are not as hot as advertised. Definitely recommend.

Although I did not actually sleep in the hotel I visited nearly every night during my 2 week stay in Gaza. I love the hotel due to the view, location and relaxed atmosphere. The food and dessert is also delicious. The service is great an welcoming and the hotel is very clean. I miss evenings in Al Deira watching the... More

I stayed 12 days at the Al-Deira making a documentary film from Gaza, and the hotel is just lovely. Although just some 11 years old, you really get the feeling of staying in an old, historic building. Food very good, (breakfast table so, so, but if you go ala carte it's superb). Fantastic outdoor restaurant overlooking the ocean and beach,... More

The Al Deira is a beautiful place (no, a palace I should say) to stay. It overlooks the sea. The view is simply spectacular. Though expensive, it is worth the stay. The rooms are simply lovely, well decorated and luxurious with all modern amenities. The beds are soft, with clean, high quality sheets. The bathroom is also modern, clean and... More

Lovely hotel located right above the sea, designed like a Moroccan palace and decorated with antiques shopped in Gaza and the Middle-East. This is Gaza's most expensive hotel. The outdoor restaurant, located right over the beach, serves very nice food and is a haunt for foreign correspondents, international aid workers and rich, secular Gazans at night. Smoking sheesha on that... More

Excellent hotel overseeing the sea, at the centre of Gaza city. Very comfortable, very good service, with amazing terrace above the Mediterranean. I will return there when I go to Gaza.

The most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed in. Despite Israel's blockade of Gaza, the hotel management and staff somehow managed to make us feel welcome and even pampered. Electricity sometimes failed because of the blockade. The rooms are beautiful -- all different. Bathrooms also different and delightful. A little cracked plaster here and there, and peeling paint,, but again this... More
