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 stayed here for three days. Staff was very helpful, room was spacious, clean, well air conditioned and provided with fast wifi. The hotel is situated in a central but quiet area. Great value for money. Hope to come back one day.

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

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.

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
