CitymaxHotels, the hospitality division of Dubai-based Landmark Group, on Wednesday announced the opening of its first international property in Alexandria, Egypt.

The new location is the seventh mid-market property from the brand, following four in Dubai, one in Sharjah and one in Ras Al Khaimah.

The property is located in Hayat Alex Park and operates in partnership with Marseilia, the Egyptian property development group, the company said in a statement.

The hotel spans across 10 floors, with 156 rooms and 46 hotel apartments. Other features include a ballroom, gym, two coffee shops, meeting rooms and a swimming pool. Citymax Hotel Alexandria also features two speciality restaurants.

Russel Sharpe, COO of Citymax Hotels said: "Since 2008, we have experienced tremendous growth in the UAE and have carved a niche for ourselves as a brand that meets the needs of the modern, price-conscious traveller. We are confident that Citymax Hotels will be well-received in Alexandria, and will continue to grow from strength to strength across markets."

Hayat Alex Park is the first residential resort in Alexandria, developed by the Marseilia group.
