Alexotel is a modern hotel located in the heart of the city. It is found in a very convenient location, just ten minutes away from the corniche and within half an hour walk from both the citadel and the library.
For 10 Egyptian Pounds, you can get to the Catcombs (go early to beat the crowds!) and for 15, you can head to Alexandria City Centre / Carrefour for some shopping.
If you're finding your own way to the hotel, it might be hard to find the place. Just tell the taxi driver, Mensella St Catherine. The hotel is just located 1 minute away from there.
The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. For 56 EGP per night for a triple, that's great value!
One of the staff, Amro, attended to us and he was very helpful and friendly. He printed out a form that showed all the attractions, good restaurants and shopping places, in English and with their Arabic translations! (Very useful).
I would stay there again if I ever head back to Alexandria!
