We ended up spending a night at the Rotana by default. The hotel we were booked to stay in had serious plumbing problems. The car this hotel sent to the airport to pick us up dumped us at the Rotana and drove off. Even from the outside it was not looking promising. The hallway and stairs were filthy, rubbish lying every where. The lift floor had some vynal covering a large hole in the floor. The room was dark and dirty, the cold water bathroom looked a health hazard. There was an old air con unit that switched its self off every 20 minuets. The sheets were dirty, with pubic hair on them. My husband got flea bites. I lost count of the cockroachs I squashed. The pillows stunk of decades of greasy hair. We asked for towels, which when they arrived, looked like something I would use to clean a dog kennel out with. They demanded 200 Egyptian pounds per night for this room. We stayed one night and left at first light the next morning to check into a much better hotel.
