This was my second year to come to Alexandria and after the great stay we had last time in the Windsor I didn't have to think twice about coming back. I was mistaken. The check in process was much better this time around and took no time at all. Last time I was here with friends and we got a...

If you are planning for a short vacation you must choose alexandria and if you choose alexandria then choose windsor palace. Its very clean and near downtown so you can go anywhere in alex. In few minutes by car or taxi, breakfast is good. However the only problem is parking the car as the hotel doesn't have a parking lot

We only stayed in Alexandria for one night and chose Windsor Palace as a matter of price point and location. The hotel is very European in style and charming. It is, however, dated and could use a few bucks worth of refurbishment. The floors are worn as well as the furniture although the vintage elevator was very cool. The staff...

The good: * The hotel is in the center of Alex, which makes it very walkable. * Cool elevators * Decent price for location * Clean enough * Free stuff (fruit, pastries, slippers, and toiletries) * Awesome restaurant view / good food (but you can always go as a non-hotel resident). The Bad: * Staff knew NOTHING about Alex. They...

We generally had a good stay at the Windsor but it didn't start off well. We called the night before and confirmed our booking and were told that there is plenty of space in the hotel so we could come check in any time we wanted. We arrived and no one knew about our booking and we were asked to...

The situation is ridiculous! totally overpriced, service is AWFUL! but, c'mon I mean it: they where not even able to call me a cab, I...

Windsor Palace Alexandria is full of old world charm. They even have those 'cage' elevators - in perfect working condition. The building, of course, is rather old but well maintained. Big rooms, large comfortable beds and a well equipped bathroom. The staff is very helpful, especially, if you are a single foreign woman. The breakfast buffet is fantastic! Go for...

Windsor Palace is with no doubt a remarkable place to notice on the Corniche of Alexandria. An old luxurious building that has been there for atleast a hundred years. The hotel didn't loose the royal-luxurious touch, there is always someone there to welcome you with a smile, a drink and dessert. Staff is very friendly, very supportive and helpful. Totally...

We arrived to the Windsor Palace late in the evening after completing all reservation steps only to find out that a large group had arrived that day and the hotel had given up our room. We spoke with the manager but no rooms were available. We started looking for another hotel at 11 pm. A bad experience with this hotel...

If you like the classical old look of hotels, with high ceiling and very long doors, old elevator, you will love this hotel. It takes you back to the Kings time in Egypt. Rooms are well maintained, the resturant on the roof has great view but very average food. The location is in the heart of Alexandria close to everything,...
