“Woeful !!! Stay Clear.”
Reviewed 9 December 2006

Very run down.Worn carpets in rooms and hallways.Tired looking rooms,dirty bathroom.
Staff uninterested in quests.Everybody looking for tips.
Reception staff unpleasant.
We booked a hotel taxi to take us to the pyramids.The driver stopped at 2 places on route to put us in an awkward situation where a forceful sales pitch was made to try an make us buy overpriced artwork and fragrances.
The pyramid excursion worked out very expensive also.
A hotel that proclaims to be 5 star should not have it quests feeling under pressure or having to keep their wits about them in and outside the hotel.
I have travelled widely using the starwood hotels quiet often.This is one of the worst Sheratons I have stayed in.I know they are completing a new section which will probably be nice,but the ethos and atmosphere created needs to be changed dramatically.
My advise ...Stay Clear.

Reviewed 10 November 2006

Very disappointed with this hotel, we stayed here on the last night of our holiday as it was extremely close to the airport and we had a very early flight. First the car we had arranged from the hotel didn't appear at the airport, then when we checked in, it took an hour for our bags to be brought to the room so that we could change and go out. The pool was OK, but the food at the restaurant there took forever to arrive, then they gave us food we hadn't ordered and tried to charge us for it.

The rooms were fine, standard Sheraton interconnecting, clean, comfortable, with good modern bathrooms.

We ordered a room service meal in the evening, to our great surprise, it was delicious and the service was great!

  • Liked — close to airport
