The hotel has a wonderful location and full of history, however I was shocked to notice that L'OCCITANE products in room expired since Sep, 2012 (Hotel manager notified throgh the hotel suggestion card along with the products). another point: on the 4th floor some of the tiles is broken

Last minute decision to stay in Alexandria and booked via Internet at midnight the day prior to my arrival. Arrived at 1pm and was checked in straight away despite the hotel policy of no earlier than 1500. Reception staff were efficient and polite, they advised that I had been selected to be the 'Guest of the Day' and would have... More

I stayed 2 days, hotel is nice, luxurious. Drawbacks: very expensive. every one in the hotel asks for tips, nothing is done for you except when you ask for it. Never make an online reservation for this hotel because the receptionist& manager don't confess it....

Here are the facts of the stay 1. Poor connectivity - The room charge does not include internet access. Room access is by LAN cable ONLY on purchase at about 22USD per 24hrs (this is for one computer only!) . Speed is pathetic for video streaming. When I called the reception to inform them of this they simply acknowledged the... More

Classic hotel, wonderful view, good location, the services is very good,& staff are friendly & professional, open breakfast is delicious and with good quality. The disadvantages are in the car parking as it is horrible & there isn't many activities in the hotel. I recommend staying in Sofitel Cecil Alexandria but with the sea view or square view as the...

If you are looking for a classic yet classy stay, that carries the 50s Egyptian atmosphere, you should totally stay there, very fine interior with a good service, the open buffet breakfast was delicious and with quality.

It's conveniently located in what I'd call a "busy" part of Alex. There are many shops and restaurants near. The hotel staff have great attitudes. The only downfall for me is that they do not have a gym. If knowing that expectantly you'll be fine.

The Hotel has a very nice Gothic feel and blends well with the history of Alexandria, the ambience seems to reflect the culture and rich history of the city. The Breakfast buffet is a wide spread of mostly nice oriental food. The staff are mostly friendly and polite, however not everyone speaks English. The hotel is located by the lovely... More
