“Worth a stay!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed here on a business trip and had an excellent stay. The food was excellent, mainly ate in the buffet but also in the cafe occasionally. Desserts need special mention.... amazing!

Rooms were large and spacious although I did get an electric shock from a lamp.

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, they went out of their way to service you at all times.

Large rooms overlooking the lake. Good buffet b&d. Reasonable prices.
A quiet place far away from noisy traffic. Yet only half an hour away from downtown Alexandria.
Some African decor. The garden is green and beautiful.

Room Tip: Ask for a Lake view.

It's a nice peaceful hotel, largely because of the ocean theme - the hotel and the rooms are decorated

The restaurant in the lobby is nice for breakfast, we didn't eat anything else there - staff are very friendly and the service is quick. In general, all the staff were very friendly actually. There's no hotel self-parking, but there's a garage directly acorss the road

The hotel isn't exactly close to the local attractions, but it's a nice safe

It didn't feel too special, but it was a nice, relaxing, friendly place to spend a couple of nights passing through Dallas.

everytime I visit Alexandria I stay in Africana Hotel, and I think is one of the best I found.
3 swimming pools, big rooms, the food is good and the staff friendly.
rooms are very good, big and comfortable, with Sat TV, AC, 2 beds, very big bathroom and a very quick room service.
the location is perfect, close to the industrial zone of Alex and to the Desert Road.

I have spent 8 nights at Africana, during a business training. The meeting room (Ball room) was cozy and nice. It was furnished as requested, and the staff responded to all our requests. Sometimes the service wasa bit slow, however people were always smilling and doing their best to provide everything on time. The overall theme of the hotel is "Africa". So you can find hand made paintings on the walls of the hotel for Zebra, Lions, etc.... The room was very nice. Very clean and straight to teh point and the value that you pay.

I have spent 8 nights, so i can say i have tasted all kind of food. It is very tasty and has lots of varieties. Also the sweets are very good.

Tips: do not forget to prepare your food and eat outside the restaurant (by the garden), and ask the head waiter to have your dessert upstairs by the pool.

weekends: they have a guitarist by the pool, that offers a very good mood....

very good for kids, as they have a kids corner and a special pool for kids. While i was there it was not working but they tod me that in week ends it should be ok.

the only thing that bothered me is the room key card. It got always banned. So i had to go to the lobby to re activate it. at th begining they told me because i put t near to my I phone. However my colleaugues faced the same problems... so it seems they have a problem in their key cards system. However, people were really nice and deeply appologizing in each time.

P.S: it offers a very good values of money, in case of extras and service charges.

Room Tip: i was in room 321. very nice, quiet. but along a long corridor. best choose rooms in 3rd floor from...

Hotel sympathetic, but with much of draught, would need to be renovated.
If the weather is good the place can be pleasant: swimming pools and garden very well
