This low cost hotel overlooks the "Corniche" (bay road) within sight of the beautiful Citadel which now stands on the site of the ancient Alexandria lighthouse. This hotel is on the same road, and only a few minutes walk from Hotels that charge $400 per night for the same views and convenient location.

The location & view from Union Hotel's sea-facing rooms is the best thing to commend this hotel. They also offer cheaper, non-sea view rooms that are pretty dark with little natural light. Even if you opt for the cheaper rooms, you can still enjoy the same view from the lobby where there's also free wifi. Breakfast is nothing to write...

One of the only redeeming virtues of this hotel was it's beautiful location - the lobby/breakfast area has a great view out over the Corniche and old Harbour of Alexandria. And from the main room, the WiFi was reasonably functional, too, although not from the rooms. Nor did the rooms share in the great views, at least any of the...

I stayed 2 days and it was nice and the room was clean. The sea view was enough for me. Thanks to the staff. This isn't the first time to me and it won't be the last. The important thing is that it's full of families.

The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and it has the best view in Alexandria. If you ask for a room with ocean view, you must consider that the noise of the traffic (24/7) is really annoying. If you are willing to give up the view for the comfort and rest, ask for the rooms in the back, they...

One of the worst hotels I've ever visited with a very bad rooms and furniture, even the service is so bad. The only great thing in this place is the view of the sea from room. The cost of the room per night is so high for the quality you get.
