Right on the Corniche in the centre of town. A perfect, if rather noisy location for walking around Alexandria. Nicely refurbished, and retaining some of the old charm, with modern facilities. Lobby and Cafe are bright and welcoming. Rooms are very clean, and bathrooms work well. Try to get a direct sea view room with balcony. For those seeking to... More

The decor has improved greatly since my last visit a few years ago and it now lives up to its grand and historic reputation. Very clean room, excellent breakfast included in the rate I paid and in a great location overlooking the sea. I would have given it a five rating but for the evening restaurant service which was pretty... More

In terms of style and location this hotel is quite unique. A pleasant place to stay and retreat from the bustle of the city. Good service and kind attention. Small details are not always addressed, but overall an enjoyable stay.

The hotel is an old piece of art. Staff was really friendly and welcoming. Our stay was only for one night but the room was really comfortable. Reception provided us directly with passwords for WIFI upon check in. The view from the room was definitely the best part of our stay. Highly recommended to take the direct sea view room... More

A pleasant hotel full of history in the hearth of Alexandria. The design is typical and the atmosphere, take us to the old times, specially the elevator. The room is not big, but choose one with sea view and enjoy the frenetic life of Alexandria. The location is great, close to the Corniche road and a few minutes walking form... More

Went there for a conference trip for a day. The hotel is very original and authentic. It has a prime location in the midst of Raml station with all the nice restaurants and cafes around. The rooms are a bit old but authentic. Hotel is clean and the breakfast is nice and healthy. The staff are more than friendly!

I fell in love with this hotel since the 1970s, when I used to attend its bar and enjoy a quiet time with its surroundings and history. I came to know about it through reading Justin, part of Lawrence Durell's Alexandria Quartet. Then I started my true exploration of the place, four years ago when I started staying there for...

Stayed there for two nights in March. The location is very central, the hotel is old yet renovated soon to include most of the new necessities. Rooms are large with good lighting, the staff are very friendly and the food is good

I have to start by saying I did not have a room at this hotel. I was on a visiting Royal Navy Ship and this was our first run ashore after several months at sea. A group of us went for dinner in the downstairs restaurant. It was spotlessly clean and very colonial in style - marble floors and a... More
