We came here to have drinks at the El Daqdaq bar. The view out over Algiers is pretty good, but the drinks are relatively expensive and the service, whilst friendly, could be better. We ordered 2 beers and 2 glasses of wine: these took a while to arrive and a while to order as there was only one waiter serving... More

I am stuck here for six days, regretting every moment of it. The photographs online depict a recently renovated and attractively decorated hotel, however the reality is very very far from the image. The internet is extremely slow and cuts on and off. You can only connect one device at a time, and you have to constantly renew the connection... More

Went to see a client here, and had dinner and drinks many times. Was OK, but felt expensive for what it is. View from the hotel was awesome and its well located. Haven't seen any of the rooms, so can't comment.

I stayed over for a few days. Almost everything is great but even though it is well located for the awesome view and within walking distance of the downtown area (20-30 minutes) , it is nowhere near another breakfast restaurant and you will end up paying 35$ for a breakfast buffet that is not so great. There are no kettles... More

Whenever I'm in Algiers I go there, great view on Algiers bay, the rooms are really big and comfy and the service is really good. They have also a terrific apple pie at the small coffee place on the main floor :)

Excellent choice of hotel for business stay. A choice of restaurants and comfortable rooms. During my stay there was a delegation from many African governments staying at the hotel so security was excellent. The restaurant on the ground floor is very dated and needs a good chef. The food at night was buffet style but there were no labels naming... More

As I native of downtown Algiers, I almost go to this hotel at least 2 to 3 times a week. What I am sharing here is not one time experience but from many experiences. It's mainly related to the service, the service there is so,so,so poor, once the waiter at the terrace almost cursed us because we came half an... More

i was in this hotel back in 2008, it seems like they have done complete rehabilitation works, before that time it looked very outdated futuristic (bright orange colors and 80's style futuristic ornaments were used everywhere). i remember it as a descent hotel for business trips, i just always woke up early in the morning because of the nearby Mosque...

Honestly, the hotel is nice and well located but 5 stars? Hell no! It would deserve 3 at best. The service is terrible, the food is bad and it's way too pricey. I paid something like 2700 Dinars for a burger (27 euros more or less). Now I don't mind more for food if it's good but you would get... More

The Aurassi completed its rehabilitation works! Of course the building's still a big concrete block, and the stay there is still overpriced, but now the rooms are neat, and I found the staff rather friendly. It's a good idea to pack some ear plugs because of ventilation noise from outside.
