  • Only a small part was opened, no many things to see, badly maintained, poor explanation, low quality/price ratio, low expectations 只开了一小部分,可以看到的东西很少,文物保存的不是很好,到处是灰尘,性价比不高,只收现金。不建议专门抽时间去参观

  • It is some sort of a hidden gem as being not that well known to everybody. It has a very cheap ticket and comprises several sections and buildings constructed and designed by the prince's own vision.....  more

  • Definitely worth a visit. 14 acres of grounds and several buildings to visit. The tile work is so exquisite. The landscaping alone is breathtaking. You'll feel like you're transported to another world, only for the faded Cairo street noise to remind you of where you are.
  • If you need to know more about history of Egypt, see how the highest level of its citizens were living before, so this is the exact place you need. Very interesting program, guided in every hall by workers of museum. Friendly staff, amazing park and old buildings of the palace will improve any bad mood in just one second.
  • The garden is beautiful but it was closed when we visited. For maintenance they say. We came here to escape the traffic noise and heat but we had no luck. The palace is a palace and I have seen many more beautiful ones in other countries.
  • This is a great place to visit if you love historical architecture. The interiors of these places blow you away. The guides arent very knowledgeable and will say any old thing to impress you and get a 20 LE tip. One kept telling me over and over again that everything is hand made. I was like 'what else would it be in 1870?'
  • The palace of the last modern Egyptian kings, a good perspective about them. Amazing castle ground floor to visit with more than 6 different rooms, but the 1st floor is closed! You can see just the main alley, there is a true exotic garden! Don't miss the king audience room behind the castle!
