This is lovely historical hotel with efforts toward greatness, but the edges are rough. Our room is quite nice, but the rough edges show up in poor grouting, inoperable drain stoppers and a non-functioning scale. The staff is wonderful, but come with an eye for appreciation, not criticism. Yes, you hear traffic noise, but consider it atmospheric. There's no 120...

The location of the hotel is brilliant with good views of the corniche, but the interior, cleanliness and breakfast were no more than a 3*. Staff were helpful. Beware of the loud music bellowing throughout the night from nearby restaurants/bars and cars hooting all night long.

This is the nec-plus-ultra hotel in Alexandria, that boasts a rich history. Top celebrities of the twentieth century stayed here and some suites bear the name of some famous guest (i.e. the King of Sweden, Agatha Christie, etc.) Top amenities and top service describe this hotel. It has been refurbished; rooms and bathrooms retains their luxurious aura. The view of...

A really lovely hotel with beautiful authentic art nouveau fittings across the entire hotel. Including an unusual and very appealingly designed lift. Two restaurants, two bars and a cafe but the real beauty is in the detail of every thing from curtains to light fittings. Very close to the seafront and walking distance from the museums in the Alexandria Library.

This really was the most charming place I stayed in Egypt. The hotel is well kept-up, the staff is incredibly nice and attentive, and the location is right at the heart of the old city in Alexandria. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Alexandria.

Steigenberger Cecil hotel has a prime location and a cool retro style. I felt like a time traveller when I stepped into the lobby, great feeling. The rooms are clean and functional. The restaurant is good with a wide range if food. Excellent choice for exploring Alexandria.

This hotel was right in the heart of the city and right along the waterfront. Great view and walking distance to many restaurants and attractions. It is located right on corniche and it is easy to grab a taxi. The breakfast buffet was also great with a lot of variety. It is also a historical hotel which is a bonus.
