Historical Traveller Reviews of Sheraton Montazah Hotel
dirty, depressing dumpfrom FifiLincolnshire
The swimming pool is grotty with traffic whizzing past.
The whole place has a depressing air of neglect and basially needs refurbishing.
Worst of all the filthy dining room, my husband got food poisoning from the buffet.
Give this place a wide berth.
On the other hand, we do assure you that a considerable action has been given to all points raised along with more attention to staff training area.
Once again thank you for all points raised. Looking forward to welcoming you again and always at the Sheraton Montazah Hotel.
Thank You and best regards,
Sheraton Montazah Hotel
Strictly above averagefrom sxa93
the best properties. However, its probably what I would call a good 4 star hotel...but 5 star...uh huh, I don't know about that!
The positives. The views of the Meditteranean are amazing. The room did come with a balcony (a lerch is more like it!) which offered great views of the sea, and of the Montazah gardens. Its easy enough to get a cab, or arrange one from the hotel to do the sights.
The negatives: The staff is kind of lukewarm...not overly eager to please. The lobby is mediocre for a hotel with this kind of reputation.
Overall, I would go there, but dont keep the expectations of a 5 star
Great views, pleasant stayfrom offduty
From our room balcony we enjoyed views of the Sea, the Gardens, and the Palace which was grandiose, especially when lit up at night. Our room was fine, very clean, comfortable queen beds and everything worked the way it was supposed to (including the plumbing). I don't remember which floor we were on, but it was an upper floor and it was very quiet. Didn't hear any street noise.
Breakfast buffet was fine, with more sweets than usual. Lunch was good here, too. We dined in the Italian restaurant one night. Unfortunately four heavy smokers were seated right next to us while we were eating, which was quite unpleasant.
There is a billiard table on the mezzanine level and several gift shops, one of which had a good selection of English-language books about Egypt, Egyptian cooking, and fiction including some by Naguib Mahfouz.
The 25-minute drive into Alex would have been really tedious if it hadn't been all along the Corniche, right next to the Sea. Taxis were not expensive, considering the distance, usually 15-20 LE, and they are easy to get if you just go down to the road at the foot of the hotel driveway.
One unusual thing about this hotel is that you have the option to reuse your towels (not getting clean ones every day) if you want to conserve water and use less detergent.
Great service, but...from JayD2006
A few levels below a Motel 6from U2NyR
If EVERY other hotel in Alexandria is booked, sleep on a park bench. It'll be a much more pleasant night for you than staying at the Sheraton Montazah Motel.
The rooms were shabby and the concrete facade is cracking badly - didn't really want to put any weight on the balcony - or for anyone above us to do that either!
The food was fine and the sevice excellent - very good cocktails!
It needs a real re-furb and then will be OK
Great service / Gorgeous viewsfrom Dreamtc
Comfort and great servicefrom Thaimartin
The Chief Concierge and his staff are both thorough and good. Even superb. People make our stays. And this fellow IS superb! He actually cares!
Location can make a great hotel. Here, yes, the location is good. But it is the staff who make the place. They not only make you feel welcome -you are welcome. It is a great place to stay. Highly recommended.
We loved it and will stay there again.from kyrudy
For a Sheraton, what a dump !from RobInSanDiego
Top Local Tips for Alexandria
Magnificent library The Bibliotecka Alexandrina is amazing, inside and out. I enjoyed the art galleries and Planetarium building, too. They are really beautiful all lit up at night.
Never take a emirates flight to alexendria All emirates airline arrivals are at burg al arab airport which is on the ouskrits of city with no facilities. Its just a small enclosure with with sections for arrival and dparture.Very dirty airport. at arrival they dont have computers so if u r on a visit visa u will have to wait for hrs to get past emigration as they do the verification indvidually. best way is to come by train from cairo. Trains are dirty but comfertable .
La Sirena Beautiful beautiful Alexandria........ so wonderful.
