“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

This historic palace in the heart of Heliopolis is simply a masterpiece built by the mastermind of this now busy suburb in Cairo as his home overlooking and crowning his empire. Built more than a century ago, the palace boasts a fusion of oriental/Indian/Buddist styles through elaborate finishings, decorations, statues and gargoyles intricately woven together to produce a truly magnificent piece of art. Stoll around this beautiful ediface to take in the sights then perhaps have a cool drink in the near by Baron Hotel
