                  Handy location good for evening strolls along the corniche in the evening

                  The hotel retains the credit card receipt with the guests full credit card number on it contrary to international practise where the hotel copy has not got the guess full credit card number on it, just the last few digits and the gust copy has the full number on it .This is essential for guest security as any hotel employee could access that receipt and defrauid the guest.

                  On the website of Booked.net they mention that they have a gym and a sauna. Unfortunately I discovered that this hotel didn't had a gym and sauna!!

                  2.8

                  Reception staffs are friendly and cooperative.

                  1. The room’s furniture is old fragile. 2. The air conditioning system is old and outdated therefore the room is always humid. Being a 4 stars hotel does not mean not using a new convenient air-conditioning system. 3. The TV is old and small and most channels are not clear. The remote control is broken and not working. 4. The bathroom is quite old and flimsy. 5. The type of food offered by the room service is too lousy. 6. Elevators are quite old and slow. 7. Too noisy at night because of the nightclub. 8. The hotel is located in a very crowded area. 9. Staffs that are around the exit gate are too annoying in asking for tips without performing any services and in front of their supervisor who is not taking any action against them. 10. The amount paid is by far less than hotel’s level. 11. Definitely I will not ever stay again in this hotel and I don’t recommend anyone to stay in it

                  The location is right in the old city centre. You will find famous and delicious icecream shop, passtries shops just round the corner of the hotel.

                  Location wise, City centre, so practical.

                  The TV in the standard room, is considered small comparing with the room size.

                  the sea view is perfect

                  reservation and booking procedures are long and time consuming

                  9.2

                  the room was very good and the bathroom

                  The check in muss be earlier. The check in was 3 o'clock I think 1 o'clock.

                  8.2

                  When I made my reservation through Booked.net I selected Superior Room, But when I reached the Hotel I found that the reservation from Sofitel Reservation Office was for a Standard room.It took me more than 40 minutes to convince the front office manager that he has to respect the details of the reservation done through Booked.net - and any discrepancies should be dealt internally in Sofitel Co. What was strange is that the receptionist was selling the Superior rooms breakfast included for the same rate I booked but without breakfast. Only when I threatened that I will book again a Superior room direct from the Hotel and pay for it but will complain to Booking and to Sofitel to collect the value of my advance payment because I know my rights as a retired hotelier - then they made an upgrade for my reservation for a superior room . Please inform Sofitel Central Reservation office that they should respect the details of Booking reservations.I Personally fully trust Booking as I had no problem whatsoever for more than five years. Thank you

                  Excellent hotel ideally situated in the center of Alexandria with a magnificent view. Staff is extremely professional and friendly in the best Egyptian tradition.

                  Good central location and cordial staff.

                  Rooms are not large enough and the suites need a decorative touch

                  Very friendly yet discreet staff - great location - beautiful hotel with fabulous elevator - beautiful rooms with wonderful view on the sea - very comfortable beds - very clean room and bathroom- great breakfast room service. Definitely recommnend it!

                  The room is spacious, clean and quiet. The room service were very cooperative and quick.

                  The view from the room was not beautiful. It was a side room looking on neighbourhood. I had to keep the windows and shutters closed all the time. Breakfast was not included which was not consistent with the price.

                  the location is perfect

                  part of the staff were nice and the other part were so nosy looking each time i come and go and made me so uncomfortable. The hotel is so old and has to be renovated. Definitely not value for money at all.

                  The hotel has a lot of history. It's been renovated. Location is perfect, close to train station, sight seeing, Coffee shops and shopping.All the rooms have see view. Restaurant is excellent. I'm planning to go back soon.
