The 5 Star Helnan Palestine Hotel in Alexandria has a stunning location on the Mediterranean Sea, set in 380 acres of gardens and golden sandy beaches. The hotel faces one of the historical landmarks in Alexandria, the “Montaza Royal Palace” that was once the home of the late Egyptian Royal Family. All the guest rooms have balconies to take advantage of the views. The several restaurants offer a wide range of fare, including Italian, Egyptian and sea food. Guests can stroll through the lush gardens, swim in the outdoor heated pool or from one of the beaches, rent a fishing boat or wind surfer, jog on the trails or play billiards or table tennis.
