The hotel stands in an extensive open park which overlooks the harbor, not far from the Algerian embassy and Jamal Abd Alnaser Mosque. It has 350 rooms. It is noted for its many arches, inspired by the original building's facade, which form the basis of the structure. The hotel once had a propaganda poster on the outside of the hotel showed a crying child superimposed above a montage of the wreckage caused by the attack by the British.
