Hotels Alexandria Egypt - Best Hotels in Alexandria, Egypt

sea five san corniche

Alexandria, Egypt is situated along the pristine coastline of the Mediterranean Sea, approximately two hours north of Cairo. Tourism is at a peak during the spring and summer months, with plenty of waterfront lodging to accommodate the most discriminating traveler.

The older hotels remain some of the best lodging for lavish sea views and close proximity to Alexandria’s main attractions. The best four and five star hotels are strung along al-Corniche, or the main thoroughfare highway running along the north coast.

On the western stretch of beach, Sheraton Montazah is the place to be for five star accommodation and dining complimented with a million dollar view of the Mediterranean Sea. Guests may walk to the local markets, or “souks” for fresh produce, authentic Egyptian meals and last minute souvenir shopping. Just over the bridge lies the Helnan Palestine Hotel, a favorite for travelers who like a little peace and quiet with their sea view rooms. The Helnan Palestine is situated on a secluded bay and a great place for sunbathing away from the traffic.

Moving eastward down the Corniche, lies the San Giovanni Hotel, located along San Stefano Beach. This is an older and dated hotel, but the sweeping views are magnificent. One caveat to the traveler: the San Giovanni is situated on a busy traffic circle that splits from the main Corniche road, and therefore, crossing the street on foot is near impossible. However, the taxis are lined up at the lobby door and ready to get you safely to your destination.

Located along the Eastern harbor and near to the historical Alexandria Library is the Sofitel Cecil Hotel, a five star property with all the expected amenities. The rooms and general ambience have a distinctive European flair and the hotel is in a prime location for a walking tour of ancient Alexandria’s monuments.
