Was quite happy with our stay at Crillon. It is in a very old building and has a very dodgy old elevator. Stayed there as part of an Intrepid tour. One of the group got stuck in the elevator so we used the stairs. I didn't get one the front rooms with the magnificent views of the corniche but my trade-off was that we got one with a private bathroom and a sitting room. We still had a little balcony with a view of the harbour and fort. Breakfast was ordinary. Hotel is very well located on the corniche in the centre of downtown Alexandria. Staff were OK - had no problems.
