“Worst hotel I ever been in”
Reviewed March 22, 2010

We arrived to this hotel on our way back to Dubai and we had a flight next day. Hotel was very dirty though the location was very good and quite. There was a dust layers everywhere and in the lobby sofa we saw a big white cat sleeping there and her white hairs was all above the sofa, and nobody seems to care. The girl who showed us the room was wearing ugly and dirty clothes and when we arrived to our room she asked us for tips. The room was cold and uncomfortable. The bathroom was dirty and full of fungus and mold, the WC was durty as well. All the items in the room were old and dirty.

We were here because of the Kumuka tour package. Personally I would not have chosen a hotel so isolated from the happenings of the city. The hotel was tucked away in a gated resort community, honestly with nothing worthwhile seeing in it.
The room was clean, but definitely showing its signs of aging and lack of maintenanace. For example, we could not adjust the temperature of the a/c in our room likely due to a broken thermostat, and ended up sleeping with sweater in a very chilled room (but better cold than hot in Egypt!)
There was quite a bit of trash in the hallway when we checked in the afternoon, but seemed like it was cleaned up by the next morning.
The pool area was very nice, and great access to the beach. However, music from the pool was very loud.

We ended up here because the other hotel in this chain would not accomodate us despite the fact we had booked.
When we arrived we were shown to really dirty rooms with falling apart furniture. We asked to move and were given slightly better rooms but with dirt sheets. We asked for the sheets to be changed and eventually at about midmight a man brought different sheets. These were also filthy.

I arrived unannounced a day early, and at 2am, and was made very welcome.I had booked 2 days at £43 per night via bookings.com.It was worth it for the view in the morning overlooking pool, and next to beach.meals , drinks very reasonable, and can be taken in room, next to pool, or watching sun set on beach.

The hotel is really pretty. The lobby is elegant, the staff is professional, the pool is lovely, and breakfast buffet was enjoyable. For the price you pay, it is quite decent, but it is still lacking. My issue is with the tiny ants that are all over the bathroom floors and get into the rest of the room. If it wasn't for that, it would definitely be the best hotel in the city. If ants don't bother you, then this place is great! I did love that they had free Wireless ;P
Also, beware that they do have a banquet hall where weddings are held til early hours in the morning (we couldn't sleep 'til after 4am!)
If you are able to spend a bit more, try the Helnan-Palestine.

Hello

Despite other people, I really loved it there. Especially when we compare room rates with other hotels, eg the Sheraton Montazah has even worse rooms but double the price and always overcrowded by Russians.....
Here there was almost nobody in the hotel when I was there, the beach for me alone as well as the very big and nice pool. OK the rooms are not of a prestige kind but ok.
Of course this is not to be compared with Gulf States hotel, but right at the beach of Mamoura, which is very famous in Egypt...
Parking possible on the street and not far from the Corniche and City Ventre, also very close to the Montazah gardens and palace.... OK breakfast was not the best ever eaten but ok. This hotel is advisable when not paynig more than 75 euros, I paid too much in October but the weather was still very good. Be aware that room rates in Alexandria are far more expensive than in the rest of Egypt due to the number of Egyptian tourists in summer, not to the number of foreign tourists... It is still an undiscovered city, so big, so melancholic and such nice inhabitants, Muslim style with a mediterranean European touch.
I will go back in June for three weeks paying 52 euros per night breakfast inclusive.
