As the title says, without exaggeration; because of the staff at this hotel I have experienced what is arguably the worst night of my life so far. Staff is NOT allowed to knock on people's doors at 2am in the morning and act like moral police, demanding to see IDs. The staff member at hand was extremely rude and made... More

I spent one night at this motel in Alexandria and had the worst experience ever. We were three female friends (one from Egypt and two from Denmark) sharing one room. We went to bed around 1 am and after two hours a staff from the hotel knocked heavily on our door. As scared as we got we didn't open the... More

I spent one night at Le Crillon Hotel and going in to the hotel I felt I was part of an old Egyptian movie. The hotel comes across as a huge flat spread across 3 different floors. It is the kind of hotel that you would spend a day in or maximum 3 nights. The rooms are clean & spacious... More

This is a very old hotel on the Main Street of Alexandria. Nothing wrong with old, as long as it is clean and functioning. The room we had overlooking the Ocean and Citadel was beautifully spacious, with great huge windows that opened onto a tiny deck you could not even stand on. But we had to have plumbers come and...

Staying at this hotel is like going back in time to the 50's. The plumbing has been updated, and the floors have been kept up, but the furniture and wallpaper look like something from an old movie. It truly is a hole-in-the-wall hotel. It's located on a side street, but it's right next to the Mediterranean Sea. The view from... More

The Crillon is all about an authentic experience on the Mediterranean. There's no air conditioning and I refused to trust the poxy olde lift (elevator) BUT this place is awesome. It has 1920s kitsch stuffed birds and big old wooden drawers and stands, you feel like you're in a Hemmingway novel. The staff are really lovely; the bathrooms are communal... More

A very nice family-run hotel. Excellent sea view, reasonable price, clean rooms, shared bathrooms (except for a few suites) & very friendly staff. Breakfast is included. Winter is the best time to be there.

Admittedly, the coldest weekend in 106 years, so my timing was off. Crillon is one those 100s of small privately owned Egyptian hotels that make an entrepreneur's fingers itch. so many lost opportunities! What could be done here with a bit of drive, imagination and minimum investment Great location in the heart of Alex (Ramle just behind) , stunning views... More

Passable but not great. Right on the main road overlooking the water (great view) so it was very loud with traffic noise until very late at night. You will find this everywhere in Egypt. the rooms aren't very effective at keeping noise out. the Lift was very dodgey looking. Shared bathrooms between a few rooms. Toilet had a strange smell....

“This place is a few dollars cheaper than the rest, but along the Corniche, you'll find loads of similar hotels and it does not cost a lot of time to check out a few. I am not going back to Crillon even though i spend a few days in Alex each month, year long”
