Room was clean and quite big (2 bed room) also the bathroom was clean. The mattress was pretty hard. The street of the hotel was small and not in good condition but a quiet neighbourhood. The breakfast was poor and started too late, 08.30. They who served the breakfast couldn't speak English and not service-oriented. The people at the reception... More

I am so grateful to the staff of the Alexotel-- they all made my stay pleasurable, memorable, and so positive that I will stay nowhere else when I visit again, and I will. Alexandria is a beautiful city and so overlooked by travelers, but now that I've seen it, I can say it's a must-see city, and the only place... More

Hugging a wonderful Greek orthodox church, Alexander the Great ticks all the marks for a solid exploration base : clean, comfortable room in a non-touristy area, centrally located in the most interesting part of this colorful, chaotic, contradictory city and a laid back, quiet air within and without its walls. It is walking distance from the bustling morning market, two... More

I've spent only one night there. Everything was very cool except the WiFi; it was intermittent. The staff were so friendly. The breakfast was delicious and warm. You've to remember that Saint Catherine School is just in front of the hotel it's a well-known landmark.

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...
