A very impressive building indeed, marble and wood all over the place, beautiful view on the city. Unfortunately, the service is not at the level, besides the restaurant people who are friendly. Issues: - laundry picked up my clothes and filled the form for laundry request themselves (I was supposed to file it) - laundry picked up my clothes and... More

Although it is a very impressive site, the Hotel lacks the excellence in service it would be expected from it. The view of the Algiers Bay is indeed stupendous, as well as the rooms and other facilities. However, it is hard not to conclude that the service quality and the meals compromise the experience. The very expensive rates foster expectations... More

The hotel is massive, very luxurious and clean, the rooms are spacious and the bed is comfortable. The view of the Bay of Algiers is spectacular. On top of that the swimming pool is great and the spa is stunning. Some of the services are not up to the level. I would mention especially the service in the various restaurants.... More

no improvement since my first visit, such a shame, this hotel has the potential to become a leading hotel in Algeria, rooms are nice and spacious but breakfast is really poor for 30 euros which is a massive amount in Algeria, staff are careless and client is the last of their worries, came to reception for check out and had...

We went to Algeria for the first time 2 weeks ago, to attend our friend's wedding at El Aurassi so we thought we would treat ourselves and stay at the hotel for 3 nights. It was amazing. The hotel is very luxurious and clean, the rooms are super spacious and the bed is comfortable. The view of the Bay of... More

Great rooms, but not so great breakfast buffet - must be lucky to get some omlets or pancakes. Gym can also have some more excercise machines and also some windows. Sauna is great and also check in and check out.

My second stay here and no improvement noticed... The only good thing is the hotel itself as in the premises: new renovated modern and spacious rooms, great gym and spa, breathtaking view and that's it... Everything else is terrible: limited menu, tasteless food, very poor breakfast and above all: very bad service. I called for AC maintenance thrice in the... More

The El Aurassi is a striking presence perched on a hill, providing views of the Algiers port. It's up a winding road, excellent in terms of security, and the grounds are expertly turned out. There are some surprises, given how pretty things look. First, our room had no tp, second the shower wall which should act as a 'curtain' isn't... More
