“Health & Safety nightmare”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I stayed here for four nights at the end of my recent holiday in Hurghada. I wanted to be in this area and the price seemed reasonable,120le per night for two, but I was lucky to emerge alive, this place was a death trap and I had to change my room three times!!!
The bathroom floors were awash because of water leaks, the power or air con was leaking outside both doors of first two rooms, the water was not hot and would just stop running in the shower, usually mid way through. There were no towels or soap and you had to wait and ask and wait again.I got told 10 minutes and then got to twenty
we came in on the evening and proceeded to the room on an outside corridor,there was no light and the floor was awash with water and no warning or caution and I slipped on the floor and hit my head badly on the step and I hurt my back, So I ended up in the Egyptian hospital paying for treatment and in great distress, not to mention ruining my evening.
When I finally returned from the hospital I wanted my money back as I had paid for the night but they would only refund fifty Egyptian pounds and not the full 120. I decided not to move as it was so close to the end of my holiday and I had so much luggage.
So if you value your life and limb go to a five star where you will get more support and sympathy.

Room Tip: yes go to another hotel as all the rooms are the same
