    The old building history (1908). Show a the architectural design of that years in Alexandria. The location in the Korneche.

    1.- I booked a room overlooking the sea, the hotel only gave me a sea view, could be seen by the side of the hotel. 2.- I booked a room with balcony, they tried to convince me that a window with fence is a balcony, after too much claim, finally they allocated me in another room with balcony, but poorly located. 3.- The sheets were dirty, with hairs and the smell of the room was not the best. 4.- I can understand the street noise because the hotel is located in a high traffic area, but at 3 AM people that circulates for corridors, loud besides rooms and the hotel staff moving mattresses to other bedrooms at 3 AM is unacceptable. 5.- Unfortunatelly I did not visited the guest review before booking.

    I didn't like that they didn't give us nearby rooms although I requisted that while booking. Also they didn't give us sea view while I have requisted that as well.

    Fabulous

    Staff were excellent. Spoken English was a bonus. Balcony was small but nice. Morning buffet breakfast was phenomenal, worth getting out of bed for. Rooftop terrace had a breath taking view with a lovely seating area. Location was close to everything including tram and airport and shopping areas.

    Hotel does not have beach access or pool. The first room we were in(room 315) was smelled so badly of mold we had to be moved. Elevator is very tiny. Mini fridge was in bad shape.

    Very well run hotel, clean and well appointed.

    Didn't like the hard sell on their tours - so made my own arrangements - much cheaper and that way I could take things at my own pace.

    Superb

    Great hotel, they have this whole period-style going with wrought iron lifts, high ceilings, gold paint etc. Rooms are in good condition but bathroom was a bit cramped but clean and water pressure was good! Fantastic buffet breakfast with omlette station. Very good value for money

    small shower tub and curtain should be replaced with a door so water does not leak everywhere

    This place was a mixed bag really, and depending on your view point, it could either be seen as having a little raffish charm, reflecting the elegance of a bygone era, or with "bygone" being the operative word, it could been seen as run down and in desperate need of updating.... Breakfast on the rooftop with a view of the Corniche was pretty good and the buffet fairly varied. The rooms had great high ceilings.

    The biggest complaint I would have is against a certain member of staff, who obviously a little hungry of "baksheesh" or tipping, hounded us around the hotel to get us to go on day trips. She rang us in our hotel room twice and we told her both times that "we would think about it" and then on not receiving an answer before the end of her shift, she had the audacity to come up to us during dinner and with a rather aggressive tone ask us once again about booking one of her trips. Also, we had to change rooms twice during our stay. 1st because the bedding was dirty, then as they decided to redocorate, the new room was filled with a horrid paint smell, which wasn't great for my asthma! Having said that, the night manager was prompt in assist us

    Fabulous

    Seaview rooms on the corner of the building have a great view over the seafront, and the breakfast is excellent, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea. Hotel is right in the centre of the city and close to all tourist attractions.

    The first room we were given was dark and smelled musty. Ask for a corner room -they have more windows and are much more spacious and light.

    spacious room, clean bed, ample free breakfast, nice location

    there was a leak in the bathroom, i had to ask multiple times for it to be fixed. After they fixed the leak, the toilet didn't work and the bathroom smelled of sewage. They never fixed it. Staff was too pushy about tours and car services (calling me in my room several times to ask if I wanted them, even though I said no at check-in)

    Good

    the lobby and salon are beautifully restored and maintained, location is also fantastic, size of room is good but feels empty

    the room itself was badly maintained, had to ask to change the sheets, requested vacuuming of room, bathroom is just very poor, bad lighting and armatures were broken

    A grand "old dame" of hotels; has definitely seen better days, but worth the stay for the wonderful architecture and design features. Huge room with 2 balconies overlooking the corniche and the Mediterranean Sea.

    Superb

    A beautiful old Alexandrian buildling nicely refurbished. Absolutely a good pick in central Alexandria - and I believe a much greater value than the more expensive Cecil hotel. Very friendly hosts, a nice atmosphere and a beautiful view.

    Breakfast could be developed a little. I've been to the hotel a couple of years ago in the high season - with a lot nicer buffet...

    the location is the best point, the hotel is generally quite comfortable however it does look rundown, however everything worked

    The plate with old fruit and biscuites in the room - is was really a waste of time and we did not touch it
