We stayed one night here and paid for a water view with our online booking. When we arrived there was a group of 3 checking in, so we were asked to wait on the lounge for a short while. Along came a complimentary refreshing non alcoholic cocktail wheeled out on a trolley with biscuits, followed by clean damp hand towels. This was most welcome after our grimy 1st class train trip from Cairo.
We were informed that we were being upgraded, which was a lovely surprise! What we didn't expect was opening the doors of the Omah Sherrif suite to see the very ornate and grand room with king size bed. The room with it's huge bathroom was very impressive, but the balcony was the best. The views from left to right along the corniche out to the sea were spectacular (the hotel is situated around the middle of the corniche)
The bonus of free wi-fi in your room was a great added bonus too.
Buffet Breakfast was excellent with lots of variety. We found the staff very helpful and polite, trying to ensure we had a good stay. With tourism being hit hard in Egypt, it was nice that this hotel was doing it's upmost to try and please their customers and ensure you left with a good impression.
The traffic is busy on the corniche out the front of the hotel, but we had no trouble sleeping. The balcony shutters helped keeping the noise out. Traffic noise dies down after about 10pm and with the curfew currently in Egypt after midnight, all is pretty well quiet.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We are not generally into grandure in hotels, but this came as a surprise and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience, particularly the ornate cage lift. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Nice staff, comfortable and clean. Quite an experience.
Great seafood in Alexandria, must try while there.
