4 days in Alexandria

I'm thinking to go from Athens in Alexandria in August with my family.

Could you give me some suggestions on where to stay, considering I travel with a child who'd like to swim also.

The city will be very hot and busy at that time, as that is when most Egyptians take their holidays. But it will also be Ramadan for one month from approximately 11th August., which may make it a bit quieter (since generally Muslims prefer not to be on holiday while fasting).

The best hotel in Alexandria is the Four Seasons which has great restaurants and a lovely pool (the huge beach looks good too but I have not been on it). Location is good (on the Corniche, not too far from the main tourist sights (downtown) and next to the tram line). If this is beyond your budget you could consider hotels near Montazah which are further from the downtown area but in or near pleasant gardens (such as Sheraton Montazah or Helnan Palestine which both have quite nice pools and basic, private beaches).
