The Windsor palace hotel is in the heart of Alexandria, very central with a walking distance from the Alexandria library and most of the site seeing places in the old town. You can reach it easily by whichever way you are traveling. The food served in the breakfast has a good quality but poor variety. The mattress are great and...

Staff were welcoming and tried to be helpful. The property needs a lot of restoration though. Rooms were acceptable but the one we got had a very small bathroom. In general the hotel's location is great near downtown with a lovely seaview

IT is an advantage to stay on the sea front, and the heart of the city,with easy access to many ways of transport. A special roof top view and restaurant, good breakfast. On the other hand the hotel need a real renovation, and fast front office registration for check in and out.

Good location on sea front and a fascinating hotel where you feel as if you have stepped into the past in terms of decoration and furnishings. Staff helpful and efficient and the rooms are huge with modern bathrooms. Restaurant on the 6th floor with terrace overlooking the bay. Menu had a good selection and the food was good. Antique lift...

We stayed 2 nights at that beautifully restored hotel with historic interior, antique elevator & an elegant rooftop terrace overlooking Alexandria's seashore. Rooms are vast & clean, staff couldn't be more helpful. Special thanks to the hotel manager. We would definitely go back. Hany from Canada

This hotel is D-I-R-T-Y. Part of the reason is that it is on the windy waterfront, bookings are down and the staff doesn't seem to care (room wasn't vacuumed in 3 days) and the hotel is undergoing renovations and the construction dust is not being contained. The smell of paint is overpowering. Only one elevator works - but it is...

Booked in here for one night after leaving the hotel I'd booked and paid for already. When I arrived the hotel didn't have my booking made via booking.com. The receptionist Hadier was very helpful and sorted everything out for me. Also allowed me to check in early. The reception area is very grand with huge chandeliers and oil paintings. Obviously...

The hotel is too old! It needs some serious renovation. It used to be beautiful in the past but not anymore! Sheets were stained with a few blood drops! The food is not really good! Tough the staff is very kind and they are trying their best to make you have a nice stay but despite their efforts, one cannot...

My friends and I spent the weekend at the hotel in one of their royal suites. Let me list the good things first. - I like the classic style and the furniture as if it's coming out of a painting. - Great location downtown and overlooking the Mediterranean. - The breakfast buffet and the restaurant on the top floor is...
