    El Salamlek Palace Hotel Montaza

    by

    We stayed with my Mom and my sister. It was a lovely 1 bedroom suite and we took the pull out couch in the livingroom which was like a sleeping on a foam taco! The staff did recommend two small rooms, but we wanted the suite, after our stay we knew why. It would be nice if they upgraded their sofa beds. They didn't let us buy the robes or slippers as souvineers which I thought was dumb of them.

    The breakfast was great and the suite was clean.

    Unique Quality: The hotel was interesting and full of photos of the Royal family and history. The breeze is so fresh in Montaza compared to other places in the city. The smell of gas is very strong in Alexandria. Montaza has the best air in Alexandria due to the extensive gardens and the Mediteranean Sea. The gardens are in my opinion, are a must see attraction in Alexandria and staying the night there gives you time to explore.

    Directions: This hotel is in the middle of the Montaza Gardens.

    In fact it was a part of the Royal Palace of ex king Farouq. Used to host the female royal guests at that time. One can see some pics of late royal family.

    The El Salamlek Palace hotel was originally built by King Abbas Helmi as a hunting lodge for his beloved mistress and as hunting lodges go, this one is pretty spectacular! The hotel has been beautifully restored and still contains a lot of original artifacts and paintings. It is surrounded by the magnificent Muntaza gardens and lies only a short stroll from the sea. Next door to the hotel is a swish casino where the glitzy people came in the eveings. The rooms are decorated with lots of gold paint and antiques and the bathrooms are spacious with gorgeously big sinks and baths. The hotel serves a good standard of food and I found the staff to be ultra-efficient and very friendly. Having woken up each morning with a view across acres of bright flowers and lush, green palm trees, I couldn't think of a nicer place to have spent my days in Alexandria.

    If you are looking for luxury, peace and quiet, and tradition in Alexandria this is the place. The hotel is located in Montazah gardens - about 40 minutes from central Alexandria by taxi or local train. The place is palatial with slick service to match. Just one thing I didn't like so much was omnipresent tv screens in the public rooms. The manager explained that these were to satisfy numerous Gulf state clients. Otherwise I couldn't have wished for a beautiful history impregnated place than this.

    Unique Quality: Tradition, luxury, super attentive service, location facing sea in quiet Montazah gardens.

    Directions: Montazah Palace Gardens

by Eskandarani about El Salamlek Palace Hotel

In the year 1892, El-Salamlek Palace was built by HH Khedive Abbas Helmi II as a hunting lodge for his Hangro-Austrian mistress Countess May-Torok von Szendro (later wife under the name Gawidan Hanem Abdallah). The Palace was built by the Greek architect Dimitri Fabricious Pasha (Chief architect of the Khedive).

The Palace is situated on a hill overlooking the emerald Mediterranean sea at the glorious Montazah Bay as well as the most beautifully landscaped gardens in Alexandria, Al-Montazah.

Nine years were spent to renovate and decorate this most beautiful palace to recreate the luxury and glamour of the Royal Era of Egypt for guests to enjoy! This 115 acre complex is surrounded by great walls from the south, east and west, and with the beach on its north side. This area used to belong to the Mohamed Ali family, that ruled Egypt from the mid 19th century until 1952. The construction was started in 1892 by King Abbas II, who built a large palace inside the complex called the Salamlek. In 1932, King Fuad built a larger palace and called it the Haramlik. His son, King Farouk, built a bridge to the sea to act as a water front. The rest of the 115 acres is nothing but beautiful gardens. Palm trees and gazelles cover the area. This is a wonderful spot to enjoy the beauty of Alexandria.
