Not easy for taxi drivers to find, I discovered, it lies opposite Saint Catherine School and adjacent to the Greek Orthodox Church. A five minute walk to the shops and Corniche, the small hotel occupies the first and second floors of what was, once, a large family house and resembles a spacious two-floor apartment giving a homely atmosphere. Each room...

The hotel is inside a residential building. Our room was clean but there was always a smell. There was a broken tile which always produced noise whenever we pass over it. The breakfast was not good with poor variety of food. I wont stay there again. Still i can pay a little bit more and be better satisfied.

So when we arrived the hotel manager told us that our rooms weren't ready and someone has taken it even though we booked it advance. We were also told that we could get the room the next day. He weren't bothered about us and he didn't want to give special discount for the next day or apologise for his mistake....

It fits perfectly for a short inexpensive stay in alex. I stayed for just one night on my own. The place is clean and comfortable. Good breakfast. Friendly staff. Location is a bit tricky so use Google maps.

The hotel is in a narrow street, in the old Greek area, the entrance is as you can see in the pics. I would not say it is suitable for a medium demanding traveller. The breakfast room is tiny, breakfast itself is a bit of a shame. Wi-fi only in the lobby of the hotel. The rooms ..well I was...

First of all, the staff is amazing. Everything we request they respond quickly. Service is very food. Room is clean, replaced towel everyday. The breakfast is okay. Very friendly staff, location is perfect and most of all they made our stay memorable. If we ever come to Alexandria again we would definitely stay here. Jenn and Hesham, room 101🙂 USA
