So, you are (I surmise) contemplating a cross-country trip by rail, but you
are concerned about speed getting from the station to the hotel :-) ?

That should be possible. But a slightly shorter metro route to Alexandria is
via the Yellow Line (transfer from Red at Gallery Place) rather than the
Blue. In any case, there is some distance from the metro to the waterfront
in Alexandria, so Jack's way (via Green Line) is probably better.
