Marhaba Palace Hotel

At a Glance

    Pros

  • well positioned for visits to the Corniche and souk
  • a new-build in 2004 means things like air-conditioning and hot water usually operate problem-free

    Cons

  • rates may not be competitive with properties that offer more facilities, so shop around
  • the pool loses sunlight in the afternoon, making it cool in winter

Marhaba Palace Hotel Review

Separated from the Nile and the Corniche by a small green space called Al Salaam Gardens, this hotel has Nile views from a few of its rooms on the upper floors. But everyone can enjoy the unobstructed river and sunset panoramas from the rooftop terrace, which benefits further from groupings of neopharaonic columns. Like many hotel lobbies in Egypt, this one has invested in stone floors and walls, and the very style of sofas and chairs—camel-backed, with curved arms—that furnish many an Egyptian home. Rooms are set with tile floors, large windows or balconies, and space enough for table and chairs. The pool on the first floor is hemmed in by privacy fencing, but it still gets the morning sun.
