Stayed one night during our visit to Mount Sinai. The scenery from the hotel restaurant is excellent. It is also located bit away from the town centre. Quality of food and the room facilities are below average. We checked into the hotel in the late afternoon and left early in the morning. So one night quick stay can be tolerated.

When we arrived we couldn't decide if it was rustic or run down. The latter very quickly became apparent. The sheets were clean - nothing else was. One pillowcase was torn. No amenities at all (lounge, pool etc.) and it was a bit of a walk (through the desert!) to town. Friends had stayed in the Plaza Hotel. Apparently it...

I can only say that the previous reviewers who thought the place was disgusting were UNDERSTATING! I agree with everything they said about the filthy, bedbugged and mosquito-ridden, hole in the ground that pretended to be a place of lodging. Even Moses would have prefered his tent, and we found it more comfortable at the top of Mt sinai. I've...

We were with a large group and were told this place was the best in the area. If so, should stay anywhere else within reasonable driving radius in order to climb Mt. Sinai. Much of the group (there were 88 of us) had food poisoning, many had bed bugs, toilets didn't work, sheets were filthy - it was just terrible...

I came here with a GAP tour so did not have any choice, but if you are not with a tour I highly recommend staying somewhere else. Upon first glance the hotel looked nice. Nice setting, rustic looking rooms, etc. Closer inspection, however, revealed that this place was disgusting. Firstly, I dont think the room had been swept in about...

We visited this hotel (?) whilst on a coach tour of Egypt from the U.K. and because of this reason it had been prebooked by the tour company. If we had known previoulsy what delights this hotel had to offer we would have slept on the coach. Firstly I think I can safely say that the room we where allocated...

Honestly, there are a million things I can write about this hotel/tourist village that would disgusts me. This is definitely the worst hotel I have ever stayed in in my entire life, and I definitely did not enjoy a single second in terms of the hotel stay, but climbing the Mount Sinai and watching the sunrise is probably one of...

A very rustic hotel in a beautiful location, but too bad about the cleanliness. We feel staying in this hotel is actually a health hazzard. The rooms were large, but very dirty. You could scarsely see yourself in the mirrors which appeared to have been cleaned with a muddy cloth. The bath tub was so filthy we refused to have...

It is located at St. Catherine, Sinai Peninsula. The scenery is wonderful, a few minutes ride to the monastery.It's at the middle of the desert and Mount Sinai. A wonderful and peaceful place to stay. The cottage we stayed in smells like old wood and it looks dirty. The bedroom is large and with a television set without the remote...

The hotel here in the "tourist village" is perfectly adequate but not somewhere I'd especially like to linger. The rooms are clean but obviously old, and our bathroom could have used some help - like a shower curtain and some new tiles. The water was terribly sulfurous but it was hot and there was plenty of it - all you...
