El Haram Hotel
Ranked #33 of 39 Hotels in Alexandria
Reviewed 14 May 2013

This hotel is the best choice for low and medium budget travellers. Its location is very strategic, just minutes from the train station and easy to find. View from the rooms is more than beautiful, especially for those facing the sea.

Room Tip: sea side rooms have a more beautiful view

very confortable hotel. Very nice location, at the middle of Alex Cournish road. Very Very Very nice sea view. All the time I want to stay at the hotel and enjoy with that nice sea view and sea air. From there you could went to any place at Alex at no time. you could take your breakfast at the morning and enjoy the rest of the day with many and many places.

Wonderfully staff: arrived from Jordan via bicycle and the staff was very accommodating to my needs, all the employees seem happy and that makes for great service. Great location to Cleopatra tram station

This is a well priced hotel on the seafront at Alexandria where the noise from the dual carriageway is kept at bay by huge plate glass windows.
Rooms are good sized and clean with a large double bed and nice bathroom.
There is free wi-fi in the large air conditioned foyer where the charming staff come and offer drinks and food like scrummy deep fried chicken and nice Egyptian white cheese and tomato rolls. All served with a smile and very inexpensive.
The lifts are aged but work well.
Some of the staff are aged and happy and smiling and helpful.

Dining is very pleasant with a buffet breakfast and lunch for about GBP6.with a really good selection of food all lovingly prepared and served.

Sleep is fine as the thick glass keeps the traffic noise at bay.

And Alexandria is just an English pound away in a yellow and black cab. Walking in the streets behind the hotel one can find the most interesting small shops and building works and all manner of people.

I recommend this hotel for location location and location.

Room Tip: i was on the eighth floor sea side and whilst the noise of the traffic was terrible on the balcony t...

El Haram hotel is not the kind of hotel that has some special charm nor some other (hidden) qualities. The seaview in the front rooms is beautiful but I had to change rooms when during a storm the draught in the room was hardly less than the storm outside.
My rooms were clean and beds were good, just like the service. The hotel is located on the corniche but to go to the central district you'll need a taxi or you can take the tram at 400 meters from the hotel.

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel and paid 405 EGP. There were rugs in the room which were filthy and very sticky to walk on. The bed did not have sheets large enough to fit and therefore had 2 over lapping sheets. The bath had white paint all over it and felt dirty and the shower head holder was not working so the shower had to be hand held.
The lifts were so slow that despite being on the 11th floor it was quicker to walk down the stairs rather than actually wait for the lift. The breakfast was below average and was stale, the one time I went I was the only person in the place and I still was not served for the first 5 minutes of sitting there.
Had I paid 100LE I would have been satisfied but for these rates I would have expected far better. I have stayed in hotels in Cairo for 100LE per night which offered far superior breakfast, cleanliness and level.
I think a hotel where you feel unable to walk barefoot in your own room needs to raise their standards of cleanliness.
The reception staff were friendly and the location was convenient.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a refurbished room. I did not although I paid the same.
