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

Each time I have stayed here the room decor has been slightly different. Its a cosy hotel with nice staff that are happy... More

Arrived in Alexandria via Hurghada. Spent two nights at the hotel. In my booking I had requested an oceanfront/Med Sea view and was not disappointed. The hotel has a history in and of itself- from the elevators to the people who stayed there. I want to say thanks to the following personnel who made my stay so enjoyable: Ahmed Eid... More

This hotel has a very classic boutique feel. It is well maintained despite being very old. The history is charming and the location is ideal for staying in Alexandria. The breakfast spread is great and the hotel staff very friendly. There IS a disco and can get noisy in the evenings when you're trying to sleep.

I should have paid attention to the other reviews about the noise. There is a disco in the building that plays loud dance music with thumping base until 5 in the morning. I assume it's every day since we were there on a Monday. It kept me up all night, and our room was on the third floor! I told... More

I spent a lovely evening and enjoyed a beatiful breakfast with a great view of the Meditteranian sea . The hotel is located in the heart of Alexandrea. We've spent our night in a classic style room , having the best sea view & a great view of the heart of Alexandria.
