From our first arrival we felt most welcome, we had a lovely room over looking the sea, I believe Elvis Presley once stayed here. If you like hotels with character and old world charm and hospitality, you will enjoy the Steigenberger Cecil Hotel. All the staff have been most friendly. The hotel is in a great location for enjoying walks...

I had a lovely weekend in the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location and the views are the best in Alexandria. This is the heart of the beautiful city. We had a good breakfast, a good meal and good sleep.

Very nice hotel. Rooms are very big. Amazing view of the sea and Alexandtia. Breakfast was very tasty, alot of options. China House on the roof is a must try! We found it very weird that house keeping only do your room when asked. The receptionist was not very friendly with an attitude problem. But overall a very nice stay!...
