“A scent of melancholy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

Without a doubt this is the best hotel in Algiers, unless you prefer the Hilton isolation or the Aurassi's socialist architecture. El-Djazair (formerly St George) has stunning architecture, magnificent old-style internal design, good location, excellent security if you're concerned with that. The restaurants offer excellent quality food, although pricy. The pool is accessible both in winter (it's covered) and summer time, and a fish by the poolside is a treat. DO NOT MISS a walk in the gardens, they are definitely the hotel's asset! Rooms are OK, they lack electric plugs though and a bit dwindling but the stay is worth it, especially considering the competition.

Room Tip: If you're staying there on a week end (Algerian week end is Friday/Saturday) make sure to ask fo...

The most safe hotel that I ever have been. Very tipical and nice decoration. Despite of the local culture, the staff is not so warmly but the are efficient. Very confortable and has a delicious breakfast.

I stayed in El Djazair hotel for a 6-day business trip. One of the main problems I faced was the unstable internet connection. The hotel is quite old and they employ data connections over power lines, dedicating a WiFi access point for each 2 or 3 rooms. Each occupant receives a username and password to access the nearest access point. The first problem is that the access point is placed INSIDE that room, which means that if you are in one of the neighboring rooms, and your access point needs to be restarted or maintained, it is subject to whether the resident in that room is available or not, sleeping, etc. The IT staff are very nice and helpful, but the configuration is quite complex and annoying. I acquired another username and password for my smart phone through the IT staff. Other than that, I had dinner at the hotel a couple of times, there are only two restaurants, the first offering Algerian and French cuisine, while the other offering Chinese food. They're both alright, but if you're looking for a true Algerian dinner, I would definitely recommend that you head to El Djenina restaurant which is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. It is definitely one of the best restaurants in Algiers.

This has been my third (and probably last) visit to El-Djazair Hotel in Algiers.
The only atout of the hotel is the central location which it makes it very easy to reach every place in town notwithstanding the traffic.
The hotel needs now a radical renovation also in the management: the rooms are old, the air conditioning doesn't work (and in Algiers this is a real problem!), breakfast is poor (bread is old and dry, there are only three different kind of cereals, cakes are also dry...), the cleaning ladies and the other staff members start their chatting out of the rooms very early in the morning, the fitness center is not adequate....).
The staff is nice and helpful, the restaurant is not bad and there is a free wireless internet connection but the hotel is rated (and the prices are those of a) 5-stars and in order to keep this standards it needs to be restructured and redecorated.
