Best luxury hotels in Algiers 2022

Capital of Algeria, a country in North Africa, Algiers borders the Mediterranean Sea. It was once under French colonial rule and is still steeped in European influences, creating an eclectic vibe that is culturally rich and diverse – Arabic is the main language. Visit the UNESCO-listed Kasbah medina with its winding, steep streets, Ottoman palaces, the 17th-century Ketchaoua Mosque and the cliff-top Catholic Basilica of Our Lady of Africa. Known for its brilliant light, it was a popular holiday destination for Victorians and although it’s only a few hours flight from the UK, it’s still delightfully untouristy in the 21st century.

Sofitel Algiers Hamma Garden

Located near the El-Hamma Jardin d’Essai botanical garden in Mohamed Belouizdad, this 335-room hotel features a Franco-Mediterranean style. There are two restaurants each reflecting the main geographical influences of the town, Le Bistrot du Jardin (serving à la carte and specializing in the catch of the day) and El Mordjane (for authentic Moorish cuisine). The rooms are equipped with bathrobes and slippers, the suites and apartments have a balcony and a Nespresso machine. There are two swimming pools; one in the spa area extending both indoors and outdoors, and the other with an adjacent lounge bar for light meals, snacks and drinks.
