Dating from 1906, this polished hotel overlooks a waterfront promenade. It’s a 6-minute walk from the Alexandria National Museum and 2 km from the modernist Library of Alexandria.
The antiques-filled rooms feature gilded walls and hand-decorated high ceilings, as well as free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs; most have private balconies with Mediterranean Sea views. Upgraded rooms include living areas, while suites add stately living rooms, and art from the hotel’s collection.
A restaurant adorned with frescoes serves high-end cuisine. There’s also a cafe with a terrace, which serves light fare.
