I stayed in a sea view room which had a wonderful view. The whole hotel is very dated (some might say old) but in many ways that is the charm of the place too. I think if you enjoy old world charm and great (amazing) views and are willing to overlook that it is a little run down, you will... More

Location is great, right within walking distance to down town Alexandria but is right on the main road by the sea side a very noisy location. A simple room that does not have a bathroom is what we got at a rate promise of less than what we would pay had we booked the room on the net !!! ....... More

If you are planning to spend most of your time outdoors, then this is the perfect place. Located in the heart of Alexandria at the seaside "Corniche", it offers both a perfect view of the Mediterranean from the rooms and easy access almost everywhere. It's a walking distance from the Main Train Station as well as the Roman Amphitheater. The... More

This hotel is a cute little place. It is a house hotel that is well managed and clean. They have many different room styles available and my friends and I stayed in different room options. They had private bathroom rooms and rooms where you share a bathroom. It is nicely located on the corrniche and in the middle of some... More

All other budget hotels were full (as were the... More

Right in the middle of the bay this 2 star hotel is a good little hotel to stay at if you are planning on being out of the hotel for most of your stay in Alexandria. It's got a great view of the harbour and clean sheets, but nothing that's going to entertain you. I stay here every time I... More
