Le Metropole Hotel is perfect for couples or family, but even it was fantastic to stay all alone. Here is the Paradise Inn Le Metropole Hotel review for giving you some good reasons to enjoy a luxurious stay during your visit to Alexandria.
I visited Alexandria during winter and experienced monsoon in the city. The best time to visit during Autumn or Fall from the end of September to early November. You may also love the mysterious beauty of the Mediterranean during monsoon, but you’ll not enjoy walking around the city center. A sudden rain bothered me sometimes to enjoy leisure time sitting in the open-air rooftop restaurant with the Mediterranean view.

My Le Metropole Hotel Moments
I stayed in a single room for three nights. This room well furnished with all old-styled furniture. There was a small balcony with a city view. The room was spacious and had two single beds, a cupboard, TV, side table and chairs, small refrigerator. And the attached bathroom had all the modern facilities and toiletries. Two persons can easily stay in this room. I liked the decor plus it was tidy.
My best moment was to spend an enjoyable time at the Sky View Restaurant in the hotel for the Mediterranean view. I loved the Le Metropole Hotel Restaurant menu, where they serve from Egyptian to French and other seasonal cuisines. The food was so fresh and especially the mix fruit juice and bakery items.
I was in the hotel during the holiday season. On the first day of 2020, I had the early buffet breakfast with the Mediterranean sea view. It was a memorable moment. The entire city landscape from the Le Metropole Hotel Alexandria rooftop is truly stunning.
The next day morning able to see the rainbow from the hotel rooftop. And found this Mediterranean seaside is also best for a morning walk and the entire environment is so calm in the morning hour.
I also loved to enjoy some photo shooting in the hotel lobby with all the classical antique pieces of furniture or artwork and all the beautiful corners of this vintage hotel.
Due to the holiday times, I found a bit noisy late at night, and one night there was no towel in the bathroom. It only requires to give a bit more attention to all those little yet essential things.
Moreover, the hotel staff is cooperative enough and highly concerned about the safety and security of each guest. So, it was all fine to stay alone. Despite some of the little issues, it was fantastic to spend three of the best nights at the Paradise Inn Le Metropole Hotel in Alexandria, Egypt.
