Our room104 overlooked the Greek Church compound and had a romantic feel and crisp cotton sheets on a the bed. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. Staff were very polite and helpful, even printing outmy boarding passes. A short walk to the city centre and corniche . Highly recommended

Staff is friendly, location is good, rooms are clean, comfortable and spacey. What more to wish? Yeah, and the price is moderate. I stayed there only for one night, but this is my choice when I'm next time in Alexandria. I just hope it won't be long.

You do not expect to find a good cheap clean hotel in Egypt but this sure is worth a visit. Clean twin room with ensuite. Great food brought in by helpful staff, Well worth a visit, Good base to see Alexandria, great city of history. Locals are very friendly.

Great stay. We stayed there for a few nights while in Alexandria and then after going to Cairo for a few days we stayed there the night before we flew out. Although I had booked the wrong night, the man behind the desk kindly offered us a larger, more expensive room for the same rate. Very understanding and accommodating. Nice,... More

Approaching this hotel through the front door it looks like your entering a recent bomb site. It's grotty and there's rubbish strewn everywhere, however once you are inside it does improve remarkably. It's also known locally as the Alexotel, if you need help from a taxi driver. It's not fantastic but during our stay here it was comfortable and reasonably... More

We stayed in a suite of 2 rooms for one night, the location is very nice, the hotel is similar to apartments as if we are staying at a house. It is not by the sea but it is a great one if you want to stay inside the city. There is a free Wi-fi.

There are many sacrifices one can make and things which can be overlooked when staying in a budget hotel but sleep is not one of them! The good things: the room was nicely decorated and spacious, the bed comfortable, the balcony with clothesline very useful. The wifi worked well. The hotel location was also good, being just a few minutes... More

We stayed here in February. Booking was a breeze with Emails always answered promptly, including the request for an extra bed when our daughter announced at the last minute that she was able to join us! No problem. CLEAN - everything was clean - lovely..... Location is central and close to anything we needed. The staff were all very helpful... More
