Helnan Palestine Hotel was built in 1964 to accommodate the Arab Kings and Heads of States participating in the Second Arab Summit in Alexandria, Egypt on September 5th, 1964. Naturally, nothing was spared to provide maximum luxury, beauty and comfort.

The hotel’s location was carefully chosen in February 1964 by the late Egyptian President Gamal Abd El Nasser, and was built on historical grounds, within the 350 acres of lush gardens of Montaza Royal Palace - once the site of the late King Farouk’s summer palace.

In October 2002, the hotel hosted a number of Royal families and Presidents when they visited Egypt for the historical inauguration of the Alexandria Bibliotheca.
