“Waste of money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

One would imagine that a so-claimed 5 stars hotel at this price would stand to the lowest standard of hotel management. Instead, I was choked to see my room, the bathroom, the facility and the service. They are all a 2 star class....and you pay the price of an exaggerated 5 stars room,

The location is great, and I am sure this was given for free to the hotel. Management of this hotel are thinking of a local club for army veterans. Everything around you is cheap. Staff are not trained, food is a joke, and facilities, if there were any, are as I said: A local club for army veterans.

I would not spend that amount of money again on such a place. I would not advise you do as well. Only go there if it is "free". that's it.

Have a look please on the picture I attached.

Sea view is magnificent everywhere in rooms, in restaurant on the beach.
Clean and calm beach.
Nice swimming pools for adults and children.
Perfect location in the middle of Alexandria and directly on the sea.
Very good hospitality.
Delicious breakfast.

This is a pretty nice hotel in the middle of Alexandria which would be great for a couple of days as a quick getaway.
The rooms are clean and quite spacious with basic amenities (safe, tv, fridge, etc…).
The beach is really good, with an artificial bay, clean sand and a sufficient number of beach chairs and chaise loungues.
Pools are also quite large and nice for those who are wary of the sea.
There is sufficient parking, including underground (which is a blessing in summer), conveniently priced at 10 EGP per day.

Where things turn sour is service and food & beverages.
Breakfast is ok, however dinner is quite bad with the only option available is an open buffet which isn’t very appetizing.
Furthermore, service is quite poor, smiles are rare and there seems to be a general air of apathy to your requests.

Perfect location, almost middle of kornich and near to stanley bridge with its perfect view. Excellent service. Very friendly staff. Most of the rooms are totally isolated. All rooms have perfect sea view. The beach is extremely clean. Very wide breakfast variety.

Hotel location is prime as it is on the coast line.
It is 5 stars hotel but compared to other hotels I have seen 4 stars is fair rating.
Nothing tangibly is wrong with hotel, location or food.. they are acceptable BUT not the 5 stars luxury , it is basic.

Spa is horrible NEVER try it..
Staff are polite and breakfast buffet is rich.

Im giving it "average" rating because I didn't find the luxury I was expecting beside this great view.

A nice average hotel - almost like a motel since its a low rise - situated right on the Mediterranean. Do watch that you are not allocated a room in the main pod (second floor) over the disco like we were. They do a sound test at 8:00 PM and the disco doesn't end until 2:00 AM. After determining it was not my heart pounding in my chest, we spoke to the hotel and they very efficiently changed our room to a quieter one.

The second caution is that the hotel is a long long building with several pods. Be prepared to walk a long distance to the main foyer and the restaurant. Otherwise its a nondescript hotel in a great city. Good breakfast and the WiFi in the lobby is free which is a great plus.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night on a recent trip to Egypt. Our room was clean and comfortable with a great view over the hotel's private beach. The staff were all very helpful and courteous and the breakfast we had at the hotel was more than adequate, with a good variety of foods available. There are some restaurants and cafes just across the road and a shopping centre not far away as well. The only small issue we had was the lack of wifi in our rooms - we just went to the hotel's roof-top bar/cafe to use their free wifi. Overall though we would definitely recommend the Mediterranean Azur is you're going to be staying in Alexandria and want a nice hotel right on the beach.
