Good location if you want to stay in the downtown (Mahtat Al Ramel) few steps from the Cornish road. I stayed in a room facing the sea and Saad Zaghlool statue. The reception and the restaurant staff are very friendly. The room is clean and furniture is good. Bathroom finishing is not so good.

The Le Metropole is very well located in the downtown area of the city right on the Corniche. It is a brief walk to the Library. The staff was very attentive and very friendly ensuring we had everything we needed and providing tour advice. The hotel itself is characteristic of an old grand hotel with the architecture to match.

This hotel was used in the World War 2 film Ice Cold In Alex and looks to have changed little since then. Lots of period features including a splendid cage style lift (large enough for two small people). The decor is dated but that adds to the attraction as do the furniture and quirky fittings and service. The location is...

First I want to give a special thanks to the front line personnel at your hotel: Kamal and Samar of Food & Beverage along with Christina and Samar in the front office. I wanted two historic hotels while in Alexandria and wasn't disappointed. I stayed earlier at Cecil and moved over to the Le Metropole for my last two nights....

The way the hotel has been renovated is very respectful of the 1902 original hotel which makes everything forgivable. The rooms are beautiful, the reception and dining areas are truly like stepping back in time: an effect the management plays up with Belle Epoque uniforms, tea carts with tea, cakes and lemonade to greet arriving guests, etc. The breakfast is...

I stayed with my wife for 2 nights at a superior double room with sea view, and we really enjoyed our stay. We loved the view and the unbeatable hospitality, and the breakfast was very nice!
