Stayed for four nights in a beautiful and comfortable ocean- front room with small balcony overlooking the Corniche. This is the Grande Dame of Hotels in Alexandria. You can walk anywhere from here. Excellent breakfast in a lovely dining room looking out at the Sea. Staff was friendly and always helpful. Special thanks to front desk including Nouran for all your help in making arrangements and providing guidance. We arranged a private guide, Nancy (who was fantastic!), through the hotel for a day of touring in Alexandria. Also arranged for a car and English speaking driver to take us out for the day to Rosetta/Rashid. Driver new his way around and we got to experience the town first-hand and visit some of the old Ottoman mansions. Can not thank everyone enough for a wonderful experience!

Great location on the bay, facing the old fort/lighthouse. Our room faced the bay and park side, but due to traffic, neither are particularly quiet. With the AC on and windows and shutter closed and fan going continuously for white noise, we were able to sleep satisfactorily. The breakfast buffet was OK and service friendly. Alexandria has beautiful bones and the city and this hotel were once spectacular and could be again.

Over all experience is poor. Not many facilities, and the back room view is terrible. The room was very noisy as well especially the Aircondition. Breakfast was below average as well. The location is only the good thing.
