I have not been to the El Djazair since the mid nineties having moved on to the Sofitel Algiers, for me by far the best hotel alternative in Algiers. I am sorry to say that not much has changed. The hotel itself is full of character but has grown quite tired by international and regional standards. Room, carpeting, finish, couches, beds (way too soft) are all in the need of some serious freshening up. TV has only a very basic channel coverage. Windows are not double panned...although on the third floor I could hear hotel security guards chatting through the night. WIFI is available and free. With some work, the El Djazair and its grounds could be brought up to be best hotel venue in the city. Service is mainly indifferent. Food the same. Adequate hotel? Yes but barely. This hotel is saved by its historical character and your ability to see its past grandeur. Hopefully someone can step and bring it back to it past glory with some serious (and expensive renos). I would not go back.
