This hotel is real value for money. It's located near many of the sights visitors will want to see and the rooms are not a lot less in quality than what you'd get at the best hotels but for a lot less the price. We loved the funky retromodern decor too...

A perfect value for money Hotel. It is more close to a boutique hotel. The staff were very welcoming, the breakfast was perfect, the Wi-Fi was excellent. Reaching the hotel location by using GPS, in seconds. I highly recommend Alexander The Great Hotel.

I was in Alexandria for business and i needed a sleeping base ... and it was great for this; cheap, clean, the staff is really friendly. I didn't try the food. The only withdraw is the place of the hotel .. the area around it is crowded and it was not easy to reach the hotel ..

Well, the main reason for choosing the place is to be near the down town and avoiding the noisy crowded streets for ease of access, I spent there 1 night and here's my review: 1-The hotel is a part of a residence building. 2-The room was good but the catering bar consisted of 3 arranged desks which is strange a...

Clean, comfortable room with airco, fridge and ensuite bathroom. And all that for hostel prices. A lot of the earlier negative comments are either not based on the truth, or the owners take them seriously. We got clean sheets every two days, towels every day. Room and bathroom were spotless, and no weird smell from the drain. Breakfast was simple,... More
