“Beautiful”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

The palace is absolutely beautiful and situated in the Montazah Gardens. You aren't allowed to enter so you just walk around it and enjoy the beauty and take pictures.

“I know were disney got his inspiration”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

The Palace is in the grounds of montazzah park so is situated in a very peaceful area though there are restaurants and the beach close by. You cannot go in to the building to look around so basically its just a case of looking at it and thinking Wow how beautiful.

“Not worth the time to see”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

Long drive for a building behind a gate. You should spend your time elsewhere like in the Catacombs or the Library museums.
