This hotel has character, including an ancient style elevator that still functions beautifully. The rooms are gorgeous and the breakfast reasonable. Only complaint is that they don't honour the price they quote on online booking sites, if you book it at a low price, expect them to "clarify" (obfuscate) to say why the price is different from what you have...

All I can say is that the decoration and the mood definitely takes you way back, and if you think you would enjoy something like this, then maybe you can spend one night there. Cons: -The room is not the cleanest. Below average. -Some cracks in the paint on the wall, but its a fair price to pay for being...

The view (when taking sea-side view), is amazing. The lobby is well maintained and very nice. The design is classic European. We enjoyed our stay in the hotel however there are also major downsides: there is a lot of noise (cars honking) so I had to use earplugs to sleep, the bathroom (and as a result also the room) smelled...

We stayed one night at Le Metropole in a Suite. We enjoyed the view on the place and the sea. We were on the 2nd floor and it wasn't too noisy. Some people compare this hotel to a museum with vintage style. In a sense, they are right : it is a quaint hotel and you can't be disappointed by...

It's great for a short stay, because the hotel is like a museum with vintage furniture and style. However they have problem with water pressure, it's hard to take shower, because it's almost no water.

Room overlooked the harbor with some amazing views. Hotel location is excellent for restaurants, shopping, Bibliotheca Alexandrina (museum), Fort Qaitbay, Corniche, everything is walking distance for the moderately fit.

Excellent location, fantastic style. Recommended for holidays especially with family. Business travelers should not expect speedy service and state of the art facilities. For holidays, especially visiting Alexandria is super.

when you like a hotel, get back to it.... It was a great idea to book there again and enjoy the luxurious history... the only difference, is that the waitress decided to stop serving capoucino on breakfast.... I will always consider it for the next trips, in spite of the fact that most taxis miss it...

This hotel brings you back to the past. Decoration, high ceiling, old style lift, warm restaurant and salons. The rooms are nice but you need to book a sea view. It could be a five but it needs a little bit of renovation. Anyway this is the kind of place you will remember if you like this kind of hotels...
