The Sphinx Hotel should be renamed as The Hotel Stinks.... Myself and a friend booked a private twin room. The room we were given was poorly decorated, with holes in the wall and a wall light that was held together with a piece of string. curtains to short for the window offered no privacy from onlooking buildings. The room was dirty. Between the two beds we had approximate 10 cm's to move between the two, only one person at a time could move around the room. We had a shared toilet right outside our door that stank and was used by most if not all occupants of the hotel....keeping us awake when marauding youngsters came in from their night out at 3am, vomit, urine all over. breakfast consisted of a slice of ham and cheese to be toasted yourself on a dirty snackwich maker used by all the residents at the same time.... Not enough space for everyone to have breakfast, we sat on the step outside on the road with our toast and coffee. Dont consider entering the shower without protective gear, someone had used the shower as a toilet, tiles on the Walls had thick layer of dirt in the grouting, we ended up washing in the sink in our excuse for a room. We were fortunate enough to be given the converted store room as our room on the ground floor but for other occupants upstairs and downstairs the steps were lethal, sharp incline or decline depending with no hand rails. For the astronomical rate charged i truly was fooled into expecting more...more fool me. Hotel is quite a walking distance from everything except the Van Gogh Museum which was a treat and one of the receptionists on duty during our stay was quite helpful. Overall a disappointing experience and we will never recommend to anyone young or old The Hotel Sphinx.
