Death & Injury Trap

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 9, 2015

I unfortunately jumped straight out of the frying pan into the fire by choosing this "hotel" for the last two days of my visit. It was a nightmare from start to finish and I would not reccommend it especially if you value your life and limb.
I was charged and then shown a set of rooms which were very dodgy and some of the bathrooms were awash with water so always look down to the ground when viewing rooms in Egypt.
The rooms upstairs above the bar were all similar and looked onto the noisy busy road which is the main drag Sheraton rd, you will have a very disruptive sleep if any.
The bathroom was dingy with cockroaches and leaky taps cold water in the shower, no towels or soap supplied or toilet paper, no bath mats to put on floor so take a pair of good bathroom slippers ie Crocs. The bedrooms were dated and a dreary brown decor and broken fixtures phone line to reception out of order.
The appearance of the hotel looked like an old toy castle very bizarre. it was full of Egyptian families with their unruly , noisy kids running around!
The beach was accessible across the road you had to show your key and mention you were staying at tabia. There were no sunbeds readily available you just had to salvage one from the pile dumped on the entrance and take your own towel. There were hardly any tourists mainly noisy locals as it was a public beach it was quite dirty and full of hungry stray cats!
One night a guest came into the hotel and it was dark and the lights had been switched off and the floor was flooded but too late they slipped and fell injuring their head on the step and ended up in hospital!
The cleaner was lazy and useless and was always on the lookout for a tip but the other cleaner was pleasant and helpful but it was the fault of the lazy cleaner who was just sat around chatting and not doing his job and should have noticed the tap running in the public area and should also have left the area adequately lit. A complete absence of public health and safety which is a common theme in Egypt at the cheap hotels especially and generally on streets and steps. The government extort £15-£17.00 from every tourist upon entry and don't seem to be reinvesting it on public health and safety, where does it all go?
So if you value your life , AVOID THIS DEATHTRAP!
