From the moment we arrived, we weren't satisfied. It was on Eid. First, there was only 1 lady at front desk handling a lot of guests so we took around 30 minutes to check-in. You have to wait a lot for the single elevator in the hotel. Once we wanted shower gel and shampoo. 1) the room service number didnt... More

I've always had a soft spot for Le Metropole. For location (right in the heart of downtown Alexandria) and old-worldly charm it is hard to beat, but the Paradise Inn Group seem determined to run it on a shoestring, leaving its gracious and long-suffering staff to try to make up for its hopeless elevator, water-stained carpets, lack of renovation and...

It is such a shame to have this hotel with this history being run by unprofessional, unsupportive staff. I've been trying to contact their reception team all day long and there is no answer. And when someone finally picked up from reservations they were not helpful at all with a hostile attitude! Such a shame to put this history in... More

It is one of the rarest hotels where you don't compromise luxury for history. Very well maintained in spite of being 200 years old. It offers the best view of the sea and has everything. How many historic hotels have Jacuzzi in the rooms?

This hotel gives you the feel that you're staying in a beautiful old mansion. I love the humungous room doors, the high ceilings, the vintage elevator, and the Victorian style rooms. It's a bit old, but gorgeous, and really gives you the feel that you're visiting an old city with a lot of history. And the location is perfection- you... More

A lovely base to explore historic Alexandria. Faded chic! Breakfast is filling enough and has a fair variety. Had plumbing problems in the room (a leak through the ceiling!) which necessitated a change of room but this was handled quickly by the staff. Would happily return.
