One of the charming hotel of the world facing an historical sea port . Steps away from the heart of the city center. Friendly and helpful staff. A stay that will not be forgotten given its antique elevators in a charming atmosphere.

Just need central air conditioning in order to enjoy balcony and hot water was hard to balance but these are small things compared to the excellent experience I had here. The service and staff were always so accommodating and helpful. I don't think I would be happier in any other hotel in Alexandria.
