Was booked in this property by our hosts. The exterior and rooms design and concept is attractive. However, the place is filthy, dusty and decaying with a stench and poorly maintained. Service pathetic. Don't waste your money. Head to properties next door or Roots.

I stayed here whilst working in Gaza and very much enjoyed it. The hotel is Arabic in style which made a nice change from the usual modern 'blank' hotels. Terrace overlooking the sea which serves very well prepared food. Service was attentive.

Didn't really know what to expect from a hotel in Gaza before I arrived. I stayed for three weeks and not only did I feel safe and welcome at the hotel, they really went the extra mile when it came to helping me have the best possible experience of the Gaza Strip. Food in the restaurant was always good, and... More

This hotel was one of the surprise we had during our stay in Gaza. It is a very nice place, clean, charming And the staff is wonderful, too. Breakfast, although it is not a buffet, it's quite varied Totally Advisable.

A preferred place to stay over for aid workers, diplomats, journalists, etc: the IDF has the coordinates and will not bomb this place! Wonderful feeling - if you have friends living nearby - who do NOT have such a benefit. Never mind - its a nice place to stay over when in Gaza, food is good (sometimes a bit slow... More

It was not the first stay at Deira. We have stayed many times there, and at ither neighbouring hotels. Deira remains a favourite. Most stay for work purpose, naturally, since access to Gaza is practically impossible from north or south for regular visitors. The hotel has spacious airy light rooms. When you also have yo work, its great to be... More

Al Deira Hotel in Gaza is something of a classic, even though it isn't 20 years old. Built with a strong Moroccan theme throughout, it is charming. And the view of the sea from the restaurant terrace and some of the rooms simply cannot be beat. The staff are lovely, warm and welcoming. Service in the restaurant is slow -... More

The Al Deira is a favourite for journalists and some NGO folks as it is considered safe (e.g. from strikes as the Israelis have the coordinates and therefore do not target). That is important. The hotel itself is quite pricey, despite being in Gaza city, largely because of what I noted above. So firstly, we stayed in room 13 which... More
