“Great look from outside though”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This place has always been closed. It is a symbol of Alexandria, but nobody can visit it. The Palace is inside Montazah gardens, the most beautiful place in Alexandria and a must see for all tourists.

“Picture perfect”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

You cannot visit the castle itself, only the surrounding premises. Still a pretty sight and easy to take in with the nearby royal gardens.

“Out of ones dreams”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

The palace is beautiful ,looks like its made from Sand. Took pictures in front of it, not sure if one can go in; we only stopped for 30 mins. There were a beach you wouldn't want to swim in and many things to buy. Sellers are very pushie !

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

The palace is absolutely beautiful and situated in the Montazah Gardens. You aren't allowed to enter so you just walk around it and enjoy the beauty and take pictures.
