We stayed here for three nights as part of an Archers/ Cosmos touring holiday.
It is in the historic area of Alexandria and the surroundings are quiet and felt safe.
The hotel is a typical Crowne Plaza, large, clean and comfortable. No problems at all with the rooms and good and friendly staff.
Food and drink in the hotel are more expensive than the nearby cafés, so if you are on a budget consider eating out. The exception to this is happy hour which lasts from 4.30 to 7.00pm. ( Check this on arrival.). Then drinks and bar food become very good value.
Eating out for breakfast and lunch try the Extra Perks cafe just across the road. Sandwiches and such, and they do have a beer and wine licence.
For dinner try the A la Lucia Italian about a block away. It is fairly expensive, but the food and service are excellent.
Major criticism? They still charge for wifi.
