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...

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....

We stayed here because the place we were going to stay I was full. What a find. The rooms are very big and the ceiling height was fab. The plaster on one of the walls was blown and did need fixing but it added to the great feel of the town. The breakfast was ok. The price for the room...

This place has a cosy homey feel complete with taxidermy in the lounge! Pay more to get the rooms overlooking the Mediterranean as its worth it. The place is fairly clean but a downside is shared bathrooms. On the whole, not bad

My room was on the 6th floor and it was relly really dirty. I've been travellng through the middle east, wich is not so clean in its standards, but I've never seen an hotel in those conditions. The good things are the sea view rooms and the good breakfast served in the restaurant.

So it is more expensive than the union, but not by much. The staff are much friendlier. This place is great if you get a sea view room. Take it for what it, and Alexandria is - a little old and rough on the edges but once spectacular. Lots of stuffed things in the lobby and furnishings give it a...

“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”
