“Great location, bad comfort but amazing staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

The hotel is old, rooms are big but only with the basics, no aircon, no shower (just bath) but clean.

The staff will help you with whatever you need. And the location is so great you'll find everything you need just walking down the street. The area is super safe and the hotel is in the same street as the police station.

If you need money change you can ask at the desk, rates are pretty good (they use black market rates) and it's safe.

A private taxi at the hotel cost 400 while in the street public taxis are around 50.

In conclusion, I didn't sleep very well because the bed was too hard and too small, and the room is far from new but if you want to visit Algiers and feel the city this is a great place... and as the price is very descent for the city, you can't really complain.

Room Tip: Don't take any rooms ending by 6... too noisy and only single beds

I have chosen many times this 3-stars hotel of Algiers city for following reasons:
1. Its very good location - between boulevards Didouche Mourad and Mohamed V-th, near the buildings of the University of Algiers and a new metro station, in the midtown of Algiers (not far from Grande Poste and Algiers Harbour)
2. Its easy accessibility by foot and by car...
3. Its rooms' very honest ratio quality/ price...
4. Its excellent breakfast offer (including local newspapers, excellent coffee and local pastry)
5. Its employees' exemplary politeness, availability and efficiency....

Room Tip: Best rooms are located at highest floors... Ask for TV remote control and WiFi your ID + Password...

This hotel is in the European quarter. It offered reservation confirmation for my visa and within walking distance of all sights. The staff were very first class and even sorted out a casbah tour with a guide who I think was from the hotel. He was a genuine, decent fellow as was everyone else I encountered in Algeria. This for me is THE place to go. Lot's of rustic charm.

I stayed for 6 days. The weather had just unexpectedly turned cold, which meant the hotel was cold for the first could of days until they got the heating running. The first thing to say is that this is a very old hotel, dating back to the French colonial time. It has not changed much since then. If you like hotels with 'character ', you will like this one! Despite the old and worn look, the rooms are comfortable enough and the staff all very helpful. The lift is an interesting experience. It looks like it dates from the 1930's and can only fit one person.

Food in the basement restaurant is good. Breakfast is a little limited, but sufficient. Wireless internet is generally fast and reliable.

This hotel well situated in the heart of Algiers gives you all the comfort you need from breakfast to lunch and diner with Algerian and other dishes. The rooms are specious with air-co, TV and wireless internet. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The inconvenient issue is that it can be sometimes noisy as there are ongoing works in the hotel and around the hotel. Metro is nearby as well as shops, to take a taxi just go on the main road and wave your hand

hotel suisse is a small hotel well located in the city centre of algiers. its staff is friendly, the rooms are ok (size, cleanliness) though things are generally not in very good shape (curtains, cupboards, tv, etc.). wifi is for free and is quite fast. the surroundings can be noisy because of traffic and mosques around. breakfast is good, so is the restaurant even though it is badly located in the basement. all in all, the hotel is ok for the price you pay.

The hotel is quite cheap compared to other hotels in the Capital. The hotel is not the worst and you will actually have good value for your money here compared to other hotels here. The staff are nice enough and tried to help. The breakfast is typical Frech. A small croissant and a cup of coffe. Not quite enough for me.
