The seaside Four Seasons Hotel Alexandria channels pharaonic opulence with multiple infinity pools, nine eateries and lounges and a two-story spa with 14 treatment rooms and indulgent experiences like 1001 Nights (a honey-almond-sesame seed peel followed by a Cleopatra-worthy salt bath and an 80-minute massage). The 118 guest rooms are similarly over-the-top with marble entryways, 32-inch flat screen TVs with DVD players, private bars, walk-in closets and marble bathrooms with deep-soak tubs and L’Occitane products. Make time to lounge on the San Stefano Private Beach, which has its own Mediterranean marina and an haute seafood spot.
In the Area
As one of the world’s largest ports, Alexandria has long been the meeting point and melting pot for countless cultures, its architecture a scrapbook of historic and modern traditions with an atlas-worth of influences. Explore the 15th century marine museum Fort Qaitbay, which incorporates the ruins of the original pharaohs, then shop the boutiques of the Alexandria City Center. Check out the palace of the former khedive in Montazah, a wild mashup of European and Middle Easter design. Indulge in a meal fit for a king in a former king’s offices at Al Farouk. Photos of princely weddings and coronations adorn a menu of regal dishes like Louis XV foie gras (served in a port wine sauce) and Ras el-Tin filet blanc et noir (veal and beef steaks with foie gras and mushrooms).
How to Get There
During our recent tour of Egypt we stayed in six upmarket hotels. The Four Seasons in Alexandria was by far the best.We had a huge room on the 17th floor overlooking part of the town and the indoor pool. The room had its own verandah, writing desk, lounge chairs and reading nook, wall television, cupboards galore, a mininbar that is accessible for your own use, seperate bath shower and toilet area. Tastefully decorated and carpeted.A digital safe is provided.
Internet/wifi access was provided and the service was excellent.
The reception staff were friendly and efficient as were all the wait staff. The room had excellent black-out curtains and the beds were very comfortable.
The Hotel backs onto a shopping mall for any needed items. The breakfast selection was fantastic and the dining room that overlooks the Mediterranean is just simply beautiful with small tables of two, three or four spread out through a large visually attractive suite of rooms.
The only possible negative was shower pressure and shower temperature which were both unfortunately very poor.
This is a must stay hotel.
We stayed at the Four Seasons as part of a group tour booking.
The room was spacious with writing desk, small balcony that for us, looked out the back onto more units, separate wardrobe however the wardrobe light stayed on all night emitting a dull light into the room. Separate big bathroom and sep toilet off the bathroom.
For us, the bed and pillows were too soft, the room was very quiet and had excellent lighting. Aircon was the best ever. Bed side clock also emitted a bright light that we had to cover.
Breakfast had a reasonable selection but the BIG bonus was the view overlooking the Mediterranean Ocean.
The hotel is directly above and has direct access to a large food court with supermarket and shopping mall.
The down side is that there are no beer/wine shops within walking distance.
We stayed for 2 nights as part of our bus tour around Egypt. We were told we had been upgraded from another hotel to stay at Four Seasons.
The staff at checkin were very efficient, our room was absolutely amazing and very spacious and comfortable, couldn’t want for anything else. We didn’t get a view over the sea but you can’t have everything.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. We dined in the Lebanese restaurant, the food and service were excellent.
Would love to come back and stay at this hotel again
It was such a relaxing experience.
We enjoyed the stay a lot.
The staff is very cheerful, friendly and attentive.
Lobby is simple, cozy and decorated with lovely fresh flowers.
The breakfast was good but not as expected; it wasn't a fancy breakfast with unlimited varieties.
The rooms were overlooking the sea & the pools; view was spectacular.
Rooms were relaxing and calming; simply decorated & furnished. They know that we had a newborn on board and had such an adorable crib waiting for us with all baby necessities. Was a lovely gesture from the hotel staff.
One of the things that surprised us was that they charged us for parking our car; and not just for the first night but the consecutive one too.
There were restaurants serving Italian, Syrian Lebanese and Egyptian delicacies
Overall the stay was great and worth it.
It was a very nice holiday we really enjoyed it specially the sea view from the room the spa and the gym was verygood too
The only thing which I think a down is the price which is still high
But the whole experience was perfect
