STEIGENBERGER CECIL HOTEL
Originally the Cecil Hotel in 1929, this historic establishment was the hospitable jewel in Alexandria's crown, having played host to the 20th century's most iconic names like Winston Churchill and Al Capone.
SAN STEFANO APARTMENTS
The San Stefano neighbourhood was named after a luxurious hotel-casino that was torn down in the 1990s. Like a phoenix from the ashes, the San Stefano Grand Plaza took its place in the form of a hotel-apartment complex. You can rent one of their apartments through AirBnB.
FOUR SEASONS HOTEL ALEXANDRIA
Or, if you want a 5-star stay at San Stefano, you can check out the Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria. Like, it’s the Four Seasons. Do we really need to say more?
DOUBLE HEIGHT DOME
This cosy brick cottage gives you the chance to vacay at the farm. Picture walking through the pomegranate trees, feeding the ducks, then taking a dive in the pool.
PARADISE INN WINDSOR PALACE HOTEL
Located just six minutes away from the Alexandria National Museum this historic 1906 hotel features hand-painted ceilings, gilded walls, and panoramic views of the Mediterranean.
SHERATON MONTAZAH HOTEL
If staying at this famous business hotel with its high-end restaurants and private beach somehow isn't enough for you, it is also just 13 minutes away from Montazah Palace, which welcomes visitors to walk through its storied museum and dine at King Farouk's tea hall.
This picturesque bohemian villa escape is something out of an indie decor Pinterest board. Its interiors are clad with macrame, fairy lights, and wood planks. In the garden, soaring palm trees frame the swimming pool.
This apartment has a cool Arabian nights thing going on, but the real gem is the stellar view. Imagine waking up to that with some ahwa in hand— not bad at all, huh?
