I was Shocked when i arrived at the Sphinx. The double room me and my mate were given was just 6ft wide, and about 18ft long. There was no room to swing a dead cat in there. The room was also next to the shared toilet, and didn't always smell the best.
Some of the staff were friendly, others seemed to do as much as they could to avoid helping you- even down to the women who wouldn't give me my deposit back on checkout, because she never had any change!
A further problem with the Sphinx was the breakfast! There was cheese, ham, salami, dry bread and boiled egs (which were nearly always black inside). One morning i asked if i could have my bread toasted- a seemingly proposterious request.
It wasn't all bad though. The hotel is in a really good location, walking distence to almost all of the cities attractions. Although the room was small and smelt from time-to-time, if you not intending to be in your room much (which we weren't) then this hotel will do you just fine. Although personally i think it is very over priced for the standards it provides- next time i would stay in a hostel or the hotel Abba- cheaper and better quality and standards.
