The reception and the waiters are quite hospitality, it's happy when they send greeting and smile to you after one day's work. I quite enjoy myself sitting in the roof to see the vast sea and the busy city.

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

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!
