    I just wanted to let you know that I had a horrible experience at this hotel.

    I will begin with the disgusting fact that there was a hair on my breakfast plate of stale bread and an equally unappealing croissant. Also, a dead cockroach with lots of ants around it, which was not cleaned up after informing the woman at reception. The door handle to my room was broken, and I had to learn how to open it with the key alone. As a result, my door was not properly locked and a guy burst into my room in the middle of the night--fortunately I was awake and watching tv. To top it all off, my shower also had a trick to it that no one thought of showing me how to use. The people working at reception did not care and were very, very rude. By the way, the prices for the rooms might be low, but they also make breakfast mandatory--at 14 LE!

    For the health and well-being of your readers, I suggest the Crillon (which is very close and on the street right after the Windsor, when walking along with the corniche on your right side) or any other hotel. The Crillon is much cleaner, the men working at the desk are friendly, their breakfast is more generous, and you'll have the nice option of Nescafe with breakfast rather than being given a tea bag with hot water.

    Directions: With the Cecil on your left and the corniche in front of you, walk to the street and make a left. The hotel is on the 2nd or 3rd street on your left. You'll notice a sign hanging on the main street.

    Good deal in the heart of Alex

    by

    It was described by a guidebook as the best budget option in Alex - and it probably is. The rooms are clean, with sparkling T&B. Location, right in front of the Corniche, in central
    Alex is very strategic, although you may still have to commute to some sights as they are spread out across the city.

    I got a deluxe twin room with ensuite T&B for USD 20 - it was larger than standard rooms in 5-star hotels. Decor was so-so, and I didn't have a view of the Corniche - but these were immaterial to me. Breakfast, which was inclusive in the price, is typical for budget places - jam, toast, eggs, coffee.

    The only drawback is their pricing (posted at the check-in counter) - it was fixed and you really cant bargain even if the place is not full.

    Directions: Along the Corniche, two blocks to the west from Sofitel.

    unbeatable view

    by

    shared or private bathroom available. dedicated friendly staff. breakfast a bit too expensive at 8E£ for tea, egg, and rolls. better to find something way more delicious or satisfying in town.

    Unique Quality: the views are amazing. super central location! equidistant between the citadel and bibliotheca as well as the graeco-roman and catacombs.

    Directions: along the Corniche, entrance on the side
