We were set up in Le Passage as our flight was cancelled leaving Cairo. This was all arranged by Egypt Air, and although we appreciated the offer of hotel and dinner, I really regret not using my insurance and staying at a nicer hotel.
The lobby was very nice, and I had high hopes of the rest of the hotel. When being taken to our room, it was as if we were going into the basement. The smell in the hallway was terrible. Smelt if smoke and bad personal hygiene. The room was just as bad. Very dirty with stains all over the floor. I actually wore my shoes in the room!
There was only 1 towel for 2 people, how that made sense to them, I have no idea.
I did not feel clean sleeping in the beds and I couldn't wait to leave the hotel early the next morning.
The buffet was terrible. I just stuck to the bread and vegetables.
If you can avoid this hotel, do it.
If you are in my situation and Egypt Air has arranged this hotel for you, call your travel insurance company. Chances are they will cover you to stay somewhere nicer!
