As of April 2016, the Seybouse was still the tallest hotel in town and judging by my experience, not the most expensive either in Annaba. That would be Le Majestic next door which charged about 1000 Dinars more for a room half the size and much more dingy. I arrived pretty much with a verbal reservation from the receptionist at the Ibis in Constantine when asked about recommendations in Annaba, and the Seybouse came highly-recommended.
I paid 5700 Dinars (Le Majestic wanted 6500 or thereabouts) for a twin-bed room (1211) with perfect views of the city and the Mediterranean from the balcony. The room was also huge and the bathroom included just that - a bath and a shower. No curtain though so spillage was regular.
Breakfast was poor - it did offer bespoke omelettes - as was the internet but then so is everywhere in Algeria.
But plenty of plugs and everything is close by. A taxi to the bus station takes about 10 minutes.
