Alexandria lies on a superb location, close to the bustling heart of Egypt while still distant enough to be on the Mediterranean shore. Here are some of the best places to stay, ranging from luxury hotels to quaint vacation rentals. Read on and choose your favorite.
Only minutes away from the beach, the Hotel Romance Alexandria offers panoramic sea views in all of its rooms. Dine well at the two gourmet restaurants available in the hotel. For instance, fine French cuisine can be enjoyed for dinner at the air-conditioned Le Clovis while local and international dishes are served at Mermaid coffee shop, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rooms are beautifully decorated with carpet floors, wide floor-to-ceiling windows, and light neutral colours. Each room has satellite a TV and a minibar.
With a great location, the Sidi Gaber Railway Station, Raml Train Station and Misr Station are all in walking distance. The elegant Saba Pasha district also encompasses the following landmarks: the Bibliotheca Alexandria, Graeco-Roman Museum of Alexandria and the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa.
Also in proximity to the beautiful Alexandrian beach, the Hotel Paradise Windsor offers a stunning sight. Dating back to the early 20th-century, this historic 4-star hotel is situated directly on Alexandria’s waterfront, allowing you to enjoy breakfast on the roof terrace overlooking the Corniche. Both restaurants in the hotel are endearingly named after English royalty. Light snacks and refreshments can be enjoyed in the open-air Prince Charles Café with sea views. Decorated with antiques and frescos, the Queen Elizabeth Hall offers fine dining and wine.
The hotel is also at the centre of activity in Alexandria, with several street cafés, shopping boutiques, and seaside promenades nearby for you to explore. With the Raml Station and Misr Station literally next door, transport is not an issue. Check out the nearby landmarks, the Alexandria Zoo, Alexandria City Center and the Al-Salam Theatre too!
Explore the bed and breakfast’s private beach while dining on breakfast! Furthermore, the hotel is also only 3.4 km (2 miles) from Mamoura Beach, for those of you who want to soak up the sun in a public beach. All rooms offer a panoramic sea view or a side view. Each suite also offers a separate living room with a satellite TV and a minibar for those who desire more space. Shop around at the San Stefano Grand Plaza and Green Mall Plaza or head to the nearby Alexandria Zoo!
Similarly boasting views of the Mediterranean Sea, the Sheraton Montazah hotel features a well-equipped gym and free-form pool. Feel free to lounge in the evening sun in your private balcony while staring across the sea. Dine at the Coquillage Café, which is open throughout the day and serves international dishes in a smart-casual setting. Café Rendez vous features pastries and cakes as well as savory snacks.
The hotel is also conveniently located a 10 minute walk from El Mandara Railway Station for those taking public transport.

5. Lodge in at this Airbnb endearingly named the Space Station for its window views of the sky and sea (from USD 80)
The Space Station, fondly named by its owner, is a central zone apartment on 18th floor that offers a spectacular view of the sea and sky. All rooms come with a sea view and a very spacious terrace to lounge in. The interior is decorated in a very sleek style with artistic furniture, with fairy lights giving a superb ambience. Feel free to plug your music into the sound system, which the owner promises to be extremely clear and loud. The apartment has two rooms, one with a master bed and another with 2 single beds + 1 extra foldable bed + 1 sofa bed. It is clearly plenty!
Due to the Airbnb intended as a sort of musicians’ hub, the owner would not mind traveling down from Cairo to meet you if you play. Otherwise, the apartment remains highly affordable and beautiful for the average traveller!

6. Live like a king in this gastronomic villa with 8 beds, 3 bathrooms, 3 TVs, and 10 swimming pools!
Despite a rather remote location, this villa is like a private resort! The apartment is a fully furnished villa in the north coast (Amoon Vilage). Even though it remains a distance from conventional touristy spots, the villa is still near Carrefour supermarket and many restaurants, making it accessible for meals and daily necessities.
It contains 3 bedrooms, 8 beds, 3 bathrooms, 3 TVs, and 10 swimming pools, making it very quiet and suitable for families who are looking to enjoy their vacation. Accommodating 8, this villa is great for those on a group vacation. Even with its behemoth size and luxurious amenities, it is only 61 USD a night!
