“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The check-in was quickly done and the personnel was very kind.
I had the room 751, and I had a beautiful view on the Essai garden.
There was a lot of space and the room was very well furnished (office desk, table, TV flat screen, fridge, chairs, etc...). The room was very clean. The bathroom was also very clean.
The restaurant is very good, every day they propose the day meal, with a choice of meat or fish and meals are well cooked. Buffet is also excellent.
The breakfast is also very good ang every day a fresh orange juice.......perfect!
The bed was very confortable and environment is very quiet.
I enjoyed using the lifts as there were funny lights! lol

Room Tip: 751 is a good one (quiet and nice view).

The hotel is very modern, reasonably maintained and friendly. It isn't necessarily an 'authentic' experience and is similar to a hotel in any other capital, which I suppose is the point. It is clearly a very safe place which can be reassuring for non-Algerians in Algiers. Security is ample. French and Arabic are obviously spoken fluently but English is spoken sufficiently. The brasserie, bar, and restaurants are up to the Sofitel standard - not different from those in New York or Paris. The staff are friendly and willing to help, if a little slower-paced than their colleagues elsewhere. There are some good views from the higher rooms. The conference rooms downstairs are well-appointed and useful if you want to hold a business meeting. All in all, a pleasant place to stay.

If you visit Algiers for business or pleasure this is a place you will enjoy.
At a walking distance (30 to 45 min walk still but I like to walk) of downtown with one of the most amazing pool I ever seen in a hotel.
The quality of service is poor. Indeed this is true all over Algeria. They have no clue what service mean and I tend to believe they have no interest in learning nor practicing.
Now when it comes to the price it is far above what you should pay for this level of service and the restaurant in the hotel are over priced for the food they serve.
Having said that, this is still a hotel I recommend especially if you are doing business in Algeria.

Falling over itself in the attempt to be stylish, unnecessary features abound at the expense of the core efficiency which is needed. From the bizarrely inconvenient access from street level, with strangely narrow and often immobile escalators, to the inadequate and unnecessarily complex lift system, the hotel gets lost in it's desire to be stylish. Staff are friendly and willing, but any customer service issues are manhandled crudely by management. Overall, it's fine as a place which can underwrite a good level of comfort and cleanliness in Algiers, but there are other better options.
