Not at all impressed with this hotel- it was cheap at E119 (inc.BREAKFAST) but service was poor, sheets looked clean but very crinkled, bathroom a bit dirty, beds like rock and our room near reception was very noisy with people talking outside until late. Strange smell we could only put down to being close to the toilets. Perhaps we were...

In a country where paying more doesn't necessarily mean you get more, Hotel Union definitely was a wonderful surprise. For a 2 Star hotel, it was better than my 4 Star stay in Cairo. Great croissant breakfast that they're willing to bring to your room! If there's more than one of you, it's worth it to splurge on the best...

There's not a lot of good choices of hotels in Alex, so I was glad to find this one. It's near the water, the rooms are roomy, and the hotel was clean. The breakfast was not worth the extra money, infact the breakfast was not good at all. They stay busy, so book in advance. There were a few small...

Hubby + I stayed 1 night @ Union Hotel. Twin room was hugh but furniture very old. Used the shared bathroom which was clean. It is right on the corniche so good location. The beds + pillows were very hard + had to ask for pillow slips. Breakfast was croissant + coffee + jam @ above the corniche so excellent...

The Union is a nice, clean hotel (more like a large hostel). The people at the desk were fine - not pushy, not really friendly, but they helped if you needed it. We didn't eat there, so no comments on the food. The room (ours was a double, partial sea view) was as clean as you'll find in Egypt, especially...

The Hotel Union was in a great, central location just off the Corniche and if you're up for a stroll you have many great resteraunts, attractions, internet cafes and the main tourist office all not far away. Almost everything else you could possibly want to get to is a 5 Eg Pound taxi fare away unless you're going as far...

First of all, like most budget hostels/hotels in Cairo, the exterior appearance is a shock. However once you arrive in the reception, things start to look brighter. The best part is indeed the Mediterranean view from your room's balcony. The hotel itself is not right next to the sea but you get an unobstructed, panoramic view of the whole seaport...

good location at the corniche (embankment). looks like a hole downstairs, but when you take elevator to the floor of the hotel, it looks better. ask to see the rooms first before you decide (lots of different rooms/prices). had 2 different rooms, and both were OK. Take care for cheating staff! (40 Egyptian Pound is not that much, but still....)
