The location is great and the view over the harbour fantastic.The rooms are spacious and spotless.The staff are friendly.WE were using this hotel basically as a base to tour Algeria so we did not make use of the extensive outdoor facilities and besides it was the middle of winter.However service levels in the "Cafe" would not be acceptable outside Algeria.

Large older hotel that was renovated two years ago. Good: large rooms, free WiFi, friendly, helpful staff, great view of city, harbor, and Med Sea. Breakfast is OK, you can get eggs cooked to order, but overpriced at 25 Euros. Could use another updating, e.g. More plugs and coffee in room. Overall very acceptable in this city that doesn't seem... More

Stayed for two nights in Al Aurassi to attend meetings in Algeria. I believe that relative to other hotels in the capital, this place is as good as they get (hence my overall rating ... ). This is not a destination where you will find the best hotels and service you would normally expect in other countries. Numerous important conferences... More

Housekeeping :( don't know what to say... When you will come back at 3pm and still not made, don't respect any sign hanging.... 8:25 am ask for management... More

Hotel's location is wonderful, the room's above 5-6th floor have an astonishing view on sea. Room is spacious enough & decoration is just acceptable or even mediocre when I compare with 250euros per night ! Service is poor and my biggest deception point is open buffet breakfast... It is so bad & of poor quality that even 3 star hotels... More

The views of the city and the sea are magnificent so it's worth paying extra for sea view but, that being said, there are nice views on the other side as well. The rooms are big (in fact everything is very spacious), clean and well equipped. Although a lot has been done to give you the feel of a 5... More

The hotel reminds me of back to the future as it has a very colonial feel to it. Service was awful and so was the food. I would say the only positive points were some of the staff smiling and room cleanliness. Apart from that it's a fading gem with no-one looking to shine it!

Would I go back, yes, no doubt. I also hear a lot of people complain about hotels in Algeria, but in my case, I didn't have major complaints The good: the hotel itself is nice, pretty well maintained. Rooms are good, clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly. The bad: service.... Key wasn't working, had someone come with me at the... More

An International hotel with all the necessaries for business travel. Rooms are good but make sure to ask for sea facing view. Breakfasts are really basic though. Shuttle service too and from the airport is a plus.

I had the opportunity to stay in El Aurassi hotel on so many occasions, and this hotel is considered among the best to stay in Algiers. The rooms are spacious and those that have the city view provide breathtaking views of the city and the port. The breakfast at the hotel is not that outstanding and was not included in... More
