When we checked into this hotel we were the only guests staying in there, the boss told us that the protests in Egypt has caused the number of visitors to plummet. At first the boss was very friendly and helpful with information about Luxor, then after staying for 5 days we had a nasty surprise. Refaat insisted that we had stayed for 8 nights instead of 5, he said that he had called up 3 different people working at the hotel who vouched and remembered that we stayed for 8 days. We at first did not remember the exact date that we checked in, but we later remembered after checking the date we had taken a train from Cairo. After an hour of fuss and arguing, we finally managed to retrieve our train ticket information from the rail website as proof. We were very dissapointed that he tried to con us with his stories - what with having conversations and calling up people to vouch for him.
