Reviewed 16 July 2014

My husband and I used this hotel as a stop over before travelling to other areas. It is a clean and fairly well presented hotel. Reception were informative and there was good WiFi. Sadly as in Ramadan restaurant was not fully functioning, room service was offered as an alternative for breakfast. This was small and the coffee Luke warm.

Room Tip: Requested sea view and was given this.

Stayed 5 nights at this hotel. Staff friendly, rooms have hot water, but check bathroom to make sure shower not broken and toilet seat in place when you are assigned a room. TV only has Arabic and French language stations. Free bottle of water daily. Air conditioning in rooms. Standard breakfast of coffee/tea, croissants and bread, jam, yoghurt, hard boiled egg. Short walking distance to National Theater, moneychangers, and Casbah. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Relatively quiet but rooms on 3rd floor facing the courtyard can get a bit noisy if guests decided t...

Worth a visit to experience using the lift (c1920) & admire the AD mirrors on the landings.
Hot water, so nice relaxing bath.Water & fruit juice in the fridge.Extra blankets brought up on request.Free petit dejeuner but coffee not so good.
Shifty looking characters in the Salon du The....best avoided..

Room Tip: We faced busy street but it was quiet.

Let us think positive, if you are lucky you may get a good inalienable on he free wi fi. No television working but after neighbour from hell with tv blaring no bad hing, free bottle of water. Very central position, views over Algiers harbour. I slept we'll each night. Tired worn out Art Deco hotel which was once I should imagine suite sending now the lifts are the most engaging feature. Service not really on the agenda, comfort not really, breakfast a joke, beer you must be joking in fact from the squalid back street entrance to the guys with machine guns round e hotel forget it, if it tried really hard it could make a one star f or its architectural merit

Room Tip: Best stay somewhere else this old government hotl is in sad decline

Stayed for 3 nights and found the hotel to be clean and comfortable and centrally situated. Breakfast was continental and not very good.

Staff were friendly and efficient although reception was a bit stand offish.

Would stay here again as prices were reasonable for Algiers, with some cheap restaurants nearby.

This is well-known and popular hotel in capitol, located in bussiness district. Some part of hotel is renowated, but you have to pay extra to get room in new part. God option is to take room withview to sea. This hotel isn't something really special but it is enough to normal stay in Algiers

I've been at SAFIR hotel for two nights. It seems last investment in this hotel was made by Frenchs before Independence war. Breakfast not poor, terrible. Only it is well located. Probably 40 or 50 years ago it has been a good hotel.

Room Tip: I recommend to pay more and book somewhere else. Even with closed windows courtains didn't stop...
