This motel is really a nice place to stay for a day or two with exactly what you payed for. Clean bedrooms and bathroom with a very nice view toward the amazing Alexandria Coast. Very affordable and friendly crew

People were nice bla bla bla, fair enough view was stunning bla bla bla, breakfast was enjoyable bla bla bla. We got a room for three of us, we are students so don't mind roughing it a bit but this was beyond belief. The room was in the process of being renovated so there was dust everywhere it looked like... More

After the glowing review in the Rough Guide, we checked in, and then checked right out. Peeling paint, dangerous electrics in the bathroom, stained sheets and rooms with refurbishment work still going on. We asked to see the other rooms, and admittedly the upper floor was a little better. But it was without a doubt the most down-at-heel establishment I... More

Ok, but nothing exceptional. Old building, the elevator stops one floor under the hotel. Barely decent rooms, but reasonably clean. Very well located, good for one or two nights. Slow wireless internet and average staff friendliness.

New Capri Hotel is a 2-star hotel, located in Mehatet Elraml, Alexandria. Prices are very cheap, yet rooms are very spacious, clean & have a beautiful sea-view. In the middle of the action, few minutes from Trianon, Attarine Antiques area & Bibliotheca Alexandrina :) Staff is very friendly and helpful. The Lobby/restaurant is oriental styled. I'll definitely come again.. Highly... More

The Hotel is spelt New Capry - but for some reason, it's New Capri on tripadvisor. The staff are amazing at the hotel - most of the staff do not speak English, and of the two receptionists that do speak English, their language English skills are very poor. Most guests staying at the hotel are Egyptians or from another Middle... More

I agree with a lot of what elmasgrande has written except that we did not have a particularly nice room (we were placed in 301 to start with and then moved to 302). Both rooms had a shower where, frankly, I could have wee-ed quicker (!) although it was hot, hot enough to make tea in fact. The door to... More

I don't know how this hotel got such high ratings. Yes, it's cheap ($23 US for a double with shared bath) and yes there is a nice view. That doesn't make up for the fact that you have to spend the night in a dump. Shabby rooms, terrible sagging mattresses – you can feel the springs. Lumpy pillows. Floors probably... More

If you don't mind staying at a horrible building, this hotel is located at the main square of Alexandria and you can get a spectacular view for USD 23 approx. Staff can be a little rude at the beginning (after the 2nd day it gets better) and their English is generally poor. Rooms vary a lot: I was changed from... More

My base of comparison, to start with, is that I eagerly stay in as good hotels as I can afford at any point of time, and have also traveled a lot on company expenses, staying or dining at some very good world-class hotels around the world. I live in Egypt now and hotels here are sometimes the only easy escape... More
