“Katastrophal Hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The rooms are not cleaned. And the beds were used. There is all damaged in this hotel. The Lamps the ground is dirty. There were no fresh towels. Even if you ask you get an used one. The other thing is that there is no room service. Without toiletpaper. The toilet is very ugly and they have used shampoo and so on. Under the hotel there is seperated in the buildung a loud disko from 2 o'clock in the night till 7 o"clock in the morning its opened with very loud music and bass is halling through the whole building, so nobody can sleep in this hotel until 7 o'clock in the morning. And the room is not even basic. Its under basic. A really ugly smell is in this hotel. The Aircondition doesnt work. And one euro is even too much for this hotel. So it is not possible to sleep. The Personal that works there were not even very good informed of how to work in an hotel and can't make this hotel. I asked for a cafe and they dont have any cafe or some other drinks. Its very very bad. I want only inform other people/ dont book or go to this hotel!!!This is a joke.

The hotel main good points are its location which is very close to the Marina and Sheraton st.,and it was the cheapest in the area. it cost me for 3 days about 41 $ the bad points, well there is no room services, no towels the room was relatively clean with an A/C ,TV and small fridge. I only took b.f. one time only was poor and the dining area was clean for about 4 tables the rest covered in dust ! . to sum it all if you are looking for just sleeping then it will do.

We had to use this hotel because the hotel we originally ment to use was full although we have booked it before!! So, we were "forced" to stay ni this hotel. I can say that this hotel was the worse hotel I have ever been in my entire life! The whole hotel was in a really bad shape. It seemed to me as if it has been abandoned twenty years ago and reopened again yesterday. Lift was broken, so we had to carry our suitcases two floors high, the whole hotel was very dirty, they had no clean towels...and I literary mean no towels!!!, there was dust everywhere in the dining room, which also looked extremely abandoned and dirty, the staf looked as if they would rather go to sleep than work. It was a complete disaster. Defenitely NOT worth the money we payed!!!

If you ever think about travelling to Hurghada, Egypt. Do NOT let this hotel be one of your choices. For one, the hotel/rooms were dirty from floor to ceiling, aggressive personal too. We were two travellers and got two tiny towels, when I asked to get larger towels they came up with one large towel, dirty as I haven't seen before. The towel that was once white, was black of dirt. We were also told that according to the hotelservice they would provide their guests with beachtowels. They had towels, but when we came down to the beach they gave us wet towels, and when I asked if the towels were used they denied it, but had to give up when I found sunscreen etc. on the towels. For your own sake, stay away!
