King Farouk’s Hunting Lodge . . . I actually liked this place. It’s in desperate need of tender loving care, but it wasn’t hard to imagine what it could be. It was clean, well equipped, staff okay. Right on Lake Qarun, it’s a beautiful setting. The food was marginal, at best. My hope is that when tourism picks up they...

Check inn process was painful !! took a long while and at the end got a poorly located and with much to fix room. Food at the restaurant was acceptable . Paintings of royalties that stayed here in the past are visible in the lounge area.

The three biggest issues - 1) there was mosquitos in our room. I killed 5 in the bathroom within minutes of being in the room, and we covered...

I visited the city for a business trip and the hotel was really great. Although it is outside the city by about 25 km but it is worth it. It has great views on Quaroon lake and the hotel furniture has a great vintage style,loved it !

Antique hotel. On the lake. Rooms are antique too but too old with almost no renovations. Food was poor. Almost no activities except the boat in the lake and it wasn't working well too. Was OK for one night. Other hotels were mainly in the past the king's palace but are but more luxurious than this one and more renovated...

I was shocked when I arrived as this hotel has got an extraordinary reputation since 40s. The lobby was very hot and humid. The restaurant has small variety either for breakfast or dinner. On breakfast you can have fresh bread every other day. The air conditioner in the rooms is not working probably. The toilets are not regularly cleaned up....
