Mecca Hotel Alexandria Reviews
overpriced, poor service, but a great view! Mar 06, 2009
One of the best things about Alexandria is that almost the entire city sprawls out along the seaside (the city is 32 kilometres long, but only 3 kilometres wide) so a seafront hotel was a must.
The Mecca hotel cleverly caters for that by having *all* rooms front the Mediterranean.
Compared to other countries I have been to The Mecca is quite expensive for what it is. But then again, everything in Alexandria is expensive for what it is, and I haven’t travelled enough in Egypt to know whether or not $ 50 for a basic single room with shower and breakfast is expensive in this country, but I’m guessing it is.
The room looks shabby, the bathroom is in a very bad state, the bed is worn, the breakfast tasteless, and the view… well, yeah, the view is great! :-)
Service has always been a loose term in Egypt, and the Mecca hotel excels by having staff actually shout at you if you do something they don’t like.
So I can’t really recommend the Mecca hotel, but then again, I don’t know if any ‘budget’ hotel in Alexandria can actually be recommended.
