Hotel Transit Alexandria
Reviewed 25 February 2012

This hotel has simple, clean rooms and is in a great location for walking to the waterfront. The staff were very friendly and offered a room for my husband to lie down when he was feeling ill (after we had already checked out and were waiting to head back to Cairo). The morning breakfast was simple but enough to start the day (coffee/tea, bread & jam, boiled egg). For the price this is a great option for budget travellers.

I stayed here for 10 days, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Location is great, about 30 seconds from the main shopping drag on Sa'ad Zaghloul St., within a five minute walk of tons of restaurants (including Mohammed Ahmed, my personal favorite) and Raml Station, and a 10-15min walk of Kom el Dikka and the main train station. Could see the sea from my window. Free wifi. Price was very reasonable: I had a single room, with a bathroom, for 120 LE per night. The staff is very laid back and friendly - I mostly dealt with Adam and Amr, both great guys. I needed a tape measure for some work I was doing, and they lent me one of the hotel's for the week. When I'm back in Alexandria, I'll definitely stay here again.

i found transit after a horrible experience with one of the other local hotels, at last i can enjoy Alexandria .

its a family hotel so expect that they will be there for your needs always, the best care i have ever had. clean room and bath and great location over Mehatet alraml.

the hotel itself is located at the last floor of an old building just behind sofitel cecil Alexandria, but the inside is OK.

this will be my first option to stay at Alexandria (of course as a budget hotel).
thanks Wagdy Family.

Great location, bright, clean rooms, great view. Staff were very helpful.
The room we had viewed the water. Free wifi. Good breakfast. The lift up to the hotel was great, no climbing stairs with our bags. Close to lots of food choices. Will definitely stay again. TV and fridge in the room was an added bonus. Price was excellent. It is in busy Alexandria, so take ear plugs, but well worth the stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view if they are available.

Not an enjoyable experience at all. The shower caused the whole
Room to leak. The hotel itself was a pain to find. The noise was loud which made it impossible to sleep. It was in an old building with very old lifts. Wifi did not reach our room. Pay the extra bit and go somewhere better. I can go on and on.

This is probably one of the worst places I have ever stayed in. To start with, it is impossible to find. A tiny sign on a very old building. The elevator is a terrifying experience and we almost got stuck inside once. The room has a tiny tv with 500 channels, and wifi works well. The minibar is well stocked and reasonably priced. We paid extra for an air conditioned room which was worth it. But all this is fine if you could sleep. The noise outside is continous and loud and the tram
Passes by every 15mins and truly does shake the hotel. The hotel itself is ok but the noise is what would keep us away.
