I stayed in this hotel, I use the term loosely,for four nights and had to leave because it was cockroach central!!
Every night I`d see one or two if it was a good night for them, I would have to ring receptiom to come and get rid, they were supersize, the size of a two year old babys hand. I could have coped with the regular ones but at 150 Egyptian pounds a night it was a big price to pay for extra guests in your bathroom.
They offered to move me to another room in the middle of the first night as the cockroach infestation was worse in the first room, the walls were green and swollen with damp patches.
The Egyptian guests seemed to be content, one told me he comes to this hotel to relax!!!?
The towels were dirty even though they were clean towels and there were only two lampshades for lighting a very big room, nightmare to do your makeup.
The furniture was old and worn and the fridge was not cooling my water at all, when I mentioned it I was told it was not for freezing, which I did not want anyway. The layer of dust on the lampshade made me choke.
The beach looked small and dirty, full of slimy men who would circle like sharks, a good smattering of Arabic helped to get rid, but not for long so I could not relax even with my headphones on.
I asked for a wakeup call for 7am and got it at 8am and was late for my diving.
There was a very loud disco next door so could not sleep for first half of the night and neither the second for the cockroach infestation. In the end the cockroaches won and I left, they did not even help me with my luggage until I mentioned a tip, I did not find them worthy of a tip or thankyou.
So if you love cockroaches you might enjoy it, otherwise avoid like the plague!
