Friendly hotel in the back streets of Alexandria, area seemed perfectly safe though. Clean well run nice breakfast and a bit cheaper than one might have expected. Wifi worked well. Could have done with nicer coffee at breakfast!

The staff are really very friendly. The room was a good size, and the bed quite comfortable. The free wifi worked well. The location is lovely and quiet, the only problem with it (and it's one acknowledged by the Hotel I think) is that some taxi drivers aren't sure where it is.

I stayed for 2 nights, I felt really welcomed; The location of the hotel is perfect. Location is really close to the lively shopping area. If you have more time to enjoy Alexandria, you can walk around to some landmarks as Alex's Bibliotheca and the sea view from the hotel. The room was so clean and nice view/facilities. The staff...

We stayed on 5th.October during a short trip to Alexandria. We were warmly welcomed by Ahmed and provided very good double bed room 101. Everything in the hotel was very good. We enjoyed our stay there.

This is a lovely bed&breakfast-type establishment in a central, quiet part of downtown Alexandria. It's located inward from the sea so there are no sea views or balconies, but the rooms are bright, tastefully furnished, spacious, and clean, the prices reasonable, and the staff laid-back, helpful and friendly. The rooms have air-conditioning and a reasonably good wifi connection. The neighbourhood... More

I would like to believe that the experience I had with Alexander the Great was one-off, as I've seen really good ratings from other reviewers. That's what drove me to choose the establishment. I booked two apartment rooms with them earlier this month. Once we reached there, we were taken to a nearby building to show us our "apartment", but... More
