This is a nice hotel. Not a great hotel, but yeah, it's good. It's old which is good and bad. The original elevator, with the cast iron, ornate, doors is great. Rooms are a little small, a sign of the age of the building. The carpets are due too. The big wins are the staff, they can't do enough for...

Overall average and noisy location. The room was sea view. It was for business stay. Can strongly recommend to get the dinner at the greek club with large variety sort of dishes, it is near by the hotel.

This was a luxurious, comfortable and quaint old hotel with personality and we had excellent customer service. All four of us friends stayed there for one night and we loved it and would definitely go back there again.

Wonderful location with Mediterranean views. Short walk to the new library and other sites. The corniche is busy day and night. Creaky elevator is a delight. Breakfast buffet featured many of the offerings of a Mediterranean diet

We enjoyed staying at the Cecil Hotel. Great service, the staff arranged to send by courier a forgotten item for no extra cost, great breakfast, great view, the lift really will remind you of the old days. Try to get a room on the higher floors to avoid traffic noise.
