I stayed at the Hotel Palestine in Aug. 2007 (not on most recent trip). It is gorgeous and have always the hotel, it's location beyond the park at Montazah, the hotel's entertainment area/garden, and beach side.
The downside was that I pre-booked on the Internet. When I arrived, reception would not recognize the booking even with the print-out. Kept asking for my "voucher" as they are only used to bookings through agents. It took 2 hours to sort out at beginning of the stay and then again 2 hours at the end, and they insisted on doublecharging me. Many phone calls later, once home I finally got the other charge removed. The confrontational receptionists were a pain. THe manager wasn't apparently high enough up to do anything. Yikes!
Unique Quality: After all that, the room was lovely with a view, and has a historic feel - not huge.
Best area is the seaside. The common areas of the hotel are wonderful. Also a pretty great breakfast (huge)
We had tea and lunch there several times during our visits to the Montaza Gardens. We went to the gardens several times, becuase the air is so superior to other areas of Metro Alexandria Egypt.
Unique Quality: This hotel is well appointed on the Mediteranean Sea, in the Montaza Gardens. Although we didn't stay here, we had refreshments here several times due to the nice service, excellent food and it's location with the great fresh air.
Directions: In the middle of Montaza Gardens.
Wonderful hotel. Hotel staff went out of their way for us, always very friendly and professional. Incredible breakfasts, very nice rooms. Probably the most beautiful location in Alexandria - within the Montazah palace gardens and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Having stayed in several other Alex hotels, this would certainly be my first choice.
Unique Quality: Great views over the Mediterranean; located within very large gardens so not surrounded by ugly buildings, etc. Nice place to relax and go for walks.
Directions: Montazah palace gardens
I'd suggest booking a room through Hotelclub.com. It helped me get discounts and also ensured quality service.
This is the place to stay if you can afford to stay here. 5 Star all the way...service, food, rooms and location. The location is prime....right in Montazah Gardens and the beach is right there.
It is considered one of the best in Alexandria. Initially it was built to host An Arab Summit. It is located inside Monataza ever green lovely gardens.
I spent my honeymoon at the Palestine Hotel. What I loved about this hotel is that it is in the beautiful compound called Montazah which is where the King of Egypt had his palace. Montazah means 'garden' and that's what you get. You walk through the gardens and feel like you have been transported back in time. Quiet and clean. Views from your hotel room are of the Mediterranean Sea crashing against the shore. A small cove where swimmers can swim safely is at the back of the hotel. Lovely!
Unique Quality: King Farouk's Montazah Gardens
Directions: Montazah Garden's of King Farouk
This wonderful hotel is set in the old grounds of Montazah Palace
It has its own private beach and also a large pool area
My room had a large balcony over looking the sea
The rooms are large and well appointed
my stay was intersting there. the hotel is in the middle of a very spacious gardens that once belonged to the king of Egypt. The hotel building is located on the sea with very nice water view. They have rennovated the hotel now and looked rich.
Unique Quality: The location of the Hotel is its best asset.
Their beach is very small and should have been bigger.
