Recently renewed, the acomodation is of a 5 star hotel. Large lobby, and the rooms are good, with a balcony with table and sofa on the outside. The hotel is on the top of the hill. Breakfast is good for a 5star, but not great. Lots of people on the desk, but service not that fast. Had to wait a... More

Regardless of the brand you stay, generally the quality of service is very low in Algeria. I think El Aurassi is a rare exception. With a totally renovated hotel, clean rooms, great restaurants and good location, I believe it is the best and only option. Still they have some way to go but this is the best you can get.

Unfortunately Algiers lacks of good standard business hotels. You will always be stuck either at the Hilton, or the Sofitel or the Saint George. Was really looking forward to a promising new venue in Algiers. Sadly I've ended up having rather bad experience. The hotel was renovated recently, and you can see it in a very modern (standard modern) lobby... More

I stayed at El Aurassi together with colleagues from 24 February to 01 March 2013. We were organizing a meeting. As such, the review is not only addressing to tourists but also to professionals wanting to access El Aurassi's meeting facilities. One of the worst experiences ever. Although the hotel has been renovated, nothing justifies the price of 200Euros/day. Same... More

Last time I stayed in Aurassi was 14 years ago... Since then, hotel was closed for 2 years, and now it is like a new hotel, with the same astonishing architecture, magnificient view, spacy halls and rooms. All that is very, very, very good. Compared with Sheraton (until now, for me, the best hotel in Algiers), only for this Aurassi... More

The rooms are clean, comfortable with beautiful view on the port. The hotel was rennovated 4 months ago which explain the cleanliness of the rooms. The breakfast is moderate with no much varieties. The service is not up to a 5 stars hotel service but is fair for algerian standards. The hotel is well located in the heart of Algiers... More

I have stayed there twice, the hotel is comfortable, the bed is great and the view is spectacular. The restaurants are ok, but not brilliant and again a little pricy. The lack of wireless is an issue, but you can access the business centre at a cost. Quite frankly at the cost of a room, the Internet should be included.... More
