We went to Algeria for the first time 2 weeks ago, to attend our friend's wedding at El Aurassi so we thought we would treat ourselves and stay at the hotel for 3 nights. It was amazing. The hotel is very luxurious and clean, the rooms are super spacious and the bed is comfortable. The view of the Bay of Algiers is spectacular and overall we loved our experience. The employees were great, from the front desk to the cleaning staff.
A few things to note:
-No heating devices can be plugged in the room, so there isn't any iron in the room. The pressing can be done by the hotel for a little extra cost.
-If you're North American and you use hair conditioner bring your own, as they don't seem to know what conditioner is in Algeria.
-The breakfast is EXTREMELY expensive. If you don't want to pay 35 euros per person for buffet breakfast, you can order a 22 euros continental breakfast in your room. It's still way too expensive in my opinion but it's the best option they offer at the moment.
-As much as my bf and I are usually comfortable traveling and walking everywhere alone, if you want to visit Algiers, you might want to pay a little extra and get a private driver to show you the city. As Algiers is not a touristy city, you will feel more comfortable and secure if you are with a local.
