“For the standard this is grossly overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2011

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel and paid 405 EGP. There were rugs in the room which were filthy and very sticky to walk on. The bed did not have sheets large enough to fit and therefore had 2 over lapping sheets. The bath had white paint all over it and felt dirty and the shower head holder was not working so the shower had to be hand held.
The lifts were so slow that despite being on the 11th floor it was quicker to walk down the stairs rather than actually wait for the lift. The breakfast was below average and was stale, the one time I went I was the only person in the place and I still was not served for the first 5 minutes of sitting there.
Had I paid 100LE I would have been satisfied but for these rates I would have expected far better. I have stayed in hotels in Cairo for 100LE per night which offered far superior breakfast, cleanliness and level.
I think a hotel where you feel unable to walk barefoot in your own room needs to raise their standards of cleanliness.
The reception staff were friendly and the location was convenient.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a refurbished room. I did not although I paid the same.

This Hotel is the worst I have ever seen. Wallpaper falling from the Walls and a toilet from the 30's. Very cheap. Practically no food available. Directly on the coast though.
