2/10 Poor

Dears M/s. ebookers, This is to inform you that I faced a problem to check in hotel upon my arrival since there was no room empty/available for the full day and even when I communicated with the owner he said "We don't have any chance up to next week" plus he denied that he has any deal with ebookers . consequently I suffered a lot till found a room in other hotel in Alexandria . Please to verify the route causes to avoid repeating the same with others respecting human rights. Also will appreciate reinstatement of my money back with remedy of this case I have faced. Yours sincerely, Regards, Ahmed Wafi

4/10 Fair

The advertisement is misleading. It is said that there is "private bathroom" to the room. In fact, there is no bathroom attached to the room. The bathroom is located outside the room and we was told that it was exclusive to us. However, it was used by other clients too. Only one tiny lamp functioning in the room. The room's carpet has many stains.

8/10 Very good

Great View of the Alexandria Harbor
It is an old hotel - with its unique charms. My room had a great view of the Alexandria Harbor. Very beautiful. Especially, in the evening. The room was airy and pleasant. A 10-minute walk to the famous Alexandria Library. Try Mohammed Ahmed’s restaurant near by. You will go back to it again and again. Just ask the locals. The hotel is also located right next to a tram terminal. Pay 1 Egyptian Pound ($0.06) and you can go as long as you want. There are two shared bathrooms. After a while, you get used to it. Hot shower throughout the day and night. The noise from the street below is deafening. It took me three days to get used to it.

10/10 Exceptional

nice place, ocean view, very quiet.
The exterior looked a little daunting at first, but it's a nice place with an ocean view, very quiet, with polite staff that is always on-site. Also close to the tram station and a convenient area for food as well as sundries. It did get a little chilly at night, though they do provide extra thick comforters in my closet for extra warmth!

Hope they have water next time!
The water was not rubbing on the first day of stay and washing therefore was very difficult. The towels were also very small.
