A modern, buoyant pulse beats through the streets of Algiers, thanks in part to its status as the Algerian capital city. Visitors quickly uncover a fascinating blend of influences at play, from the gamut of Mediterranean cultures, including Ancient Greek and Roman, through to more recent French flair, all accented with the distinct Maghrebi and Algerian traditions. Read on to discover the best hotels in Algiers, available to book on Culture Trip.

Lamaraz Arts Hotel, for Bay of Algiers views

Despite what the name might suggest, the art and design elements at Lamaraz Arts Hotel are tastefully restrained. Rooms are decorated in a cream, coffee and white palette, with Edward Weston-style black-and-white photography dotted around. The bar and lounge, at the top of the hotel, offer expansive Bay of Algiers views – particularly from the open-air terrace, which is trumped only by a few of the suites, whose balcony jacuzzis are the final word in comfortable awe.

M Suite Hotel, for easy airport access

Are you looking to stay close to Houari Boumediene Airport? The M Suite Hotel, a six-minute drive away, is a particularly popular choice with business travellers thanks to its meeting rooms and events space. The rooms are versatile, too, allowing guests to dine in if they’d prefer, thanks to the kitchenette in the suites and apartments, plus seating and living spaces that are separate from the main bedroom. These spacious rooms have modern furnishings and utilise playful Algerian designs.

Hotel El Aurassi, for grandeur and generous facilities

Towards the Casbah of Algiers, the Hotel El Aurassi cuts a grandiose wedge against the skyline. This is a place of broad corridors and open spaces with lofty ceilings and trickling fountains, and where rooms – some of which have views over the bay – are warmly decorated in ochre or mustard tones, and cotton and silk textures. There are six restaurants and cafes here, plus a generous array of facilities for active guests, such as the fitness centre and tennis courts.

Sofitel Algiers Hamma Garden, for five-star serenity

Sofitel Algiers Hamma Garden is adjacent to the El-Hamma Jardin d’Essai, a vast 19th-century botanical garden. The hotel’s five stars are well-earned through cultivating an elegant and calming escape from the heat and frenetic pace of the city. Here, the crisply furnished rooms feature modern art and fresh flowers, little touches of character that are mirrored throughout the common spaces, including the hotel’s rooftop terrace pool and airport hangar-style lobby.

AZ Hôtel Zeralda, for great-value amenities

Balconies and plants drip fairy lights around the outdoor dining space. Bathrooms are decorated in an intricate pebble motif, while many of the rooms have pinstripe wallpaper and Casbah paintings. The hotel’s fitness centre features running machines and a weights bench.
