I was booked into the cairo city centre hotel for 7 nights but only stayed for 2. They refused to give me my money back for the 5 nights I didnt stay.
The room was disgustingly dirty which I probably would have put up with as I wasnt spending much time there.
The big problem came on the third day when after spending some time in the hotel lounge I went upstairs to get changed. Two men (one of which said he was the owner) barged into my room saying I had a man inside. (My Egyptian boyfriend was not inside, he was downstairs and was due to meet me in reception).
I am well aware of the rules of no men in a room without a marriage certificate.
Even though I explained that my room was empty and my boyfriend downstairs they pushed past me and searched my whole room. Even in the cupboards. I was extremely shocked and upset by having two men in my room and was really scared as to what they might have done to me. Obviously I could not stay there after this incident and had to leave despite them refusing to give me a refund for the 5 nights I had not stayed. I did not feel safe and was worried they might use the same excuse to come back into my room again.
My boyfriend threatened to tell the police but they didnt care.
This hotel is not safe for people and their attitude is disgusing.
I was totally stunned by how I was treated by these people. I have never felt like that in any hotel I have stayed in in Cairo before. Beware of this place and its awful staff.
