An Oasis in the city - easy access to boot. Catch the metro there, visit the gardens, there#s a couple of OK cafes to get something to eat or drink. Its a very photogenic place if a bit run down. Catch the cable car upto the Monument after -

Near by to the Sofitel, you get in by the North gate, and immediately on your right is the French garden, (luckily we went on Saturday afternoon, because they were closed on Sunday). It's a nice walk and the architecture did remind me the parc de Sceaux with the different ponds. You have a fantastic view towards the sea. Nice... More

This is the place to go to if in Algiers....the view is amazing, the trees and flowers are well looked after and the place is clean. You also have an amazing zoo inside (I think one of the oldest in Africa) with lots of animals...I would highly recommend...

The Sofitel Hamma Garden Hotel is adjacent to the Jardin d'Essai du Hamma and you can see the gardens from any of the rooms facing the East direction. In fact, there is a great view from the fitness centre. If you have extra time while in Algiers, make a trip through the gardens. Getting a ticket at the entrance can... More

Nice place to walk around and enjoy a warm day. Lush, green, and full of beautiful flowers and trees. It's a great place to get away from the crowds and noise and cement of Algiers.

A beautiful place of peace and tranquillity with a plethora of fauna on offer. Some rare specimen. Ticket purchasing is a major put-off. Chaotic scenes at the booth with crowds shoving a shuffling - no organisation whatsoever. used tickets being touted right at the entrance. Trees and their fallen foliage (often rare varieties) not managed - kids climb branches in... More

Interesting and beautiful gardens with some rare plants and trees. Plenty of seats in the shade as you walk around and refreshments available. The Algerians are very friendly and welcoming and we were thanked profusely on many occasions for visiting their country. An unforgettable experience.
