“The most disgusting hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2010

This hotel was disgusting, please do not stay here. There were bed bugs in the beds! Disgusting. The towels were like brillo pads. The bathroom was also dirty. The people at the front desk barely spoke english and they were not helpful at all. The breakfast was digusting, and made everyone on our trip sick.

Literally the most disgusting hotel, it's worse than a motel. I would NEVER EVER STAY HERE AGAIN.

Even thought the guide book warned us that it was a bit out of the way, they didn't mention it was in an industrial district and a traffic jam away from the Museum. Price was double from the book and, worst of all, no hot water!!!!. For 54 euros this was definitely a rip-off. At the expected price of $30, it would have been just okay, but hard to rate this any more than poor

We checked-in in the early morning after taking the sleeping train from Luxor to Cairo. Victoria Hotel is within the walking distance to 2 Metro stations and the Ramses Train Station. Room is big and with clean bathroom. Staff is ok. Generally it is a safe choice and price is very reasonable with what the hotel provides.

Only few complaints:

- We couldn't adjust the temperature of the air-conditioner (can just turn on or off)
- Pressure of the shower is extremely weak!
- Very limited choices for breakfast (not suggest to have meal in hotel restaurant)

Very friendly and helpful staff, albeit at their own pace. Clean and comfortable room. The shower was a bit unpredictable - water pressure sometimes low, and shower holder in such a position you had to hold the head to shower properly. Single glazing allowed background street noise through - but I actually quite enjoyed the constant reminder we were in a vibrant, in-your-face city. Amenities fairly basic, but included internet cafe and bar. Although not immediately next to key tourist areas, it is well situated to get to them all within a 5 minute taxi ride.

The friendliness of the staff and cleanliness of the rooms were the best features. Shower was definitely the worst. Given the price, I thought this was a great value way of feeling closer to the city without exposure to the chaos and frenzy that is downtown Cairo. In the Marriotts/Hiltons/Four Seasons not only do you pay a whack more, you also are hermetically sealed from the world outside.

I can only conclude that other recent reviewers were lucky. Faded glory is a gross exaggeration and misrepresentation of this nightmare place. The rooms are smelly, whereas mine didn't have toilet paper, or hot water! Many of the staff are rude and think only of one thing, to scam you and get as much 'bakshish' (tips) out of you that they can. It is an insult that they even dare to charge for the rubbish they call a breakfast. In general, the food offered by the 'restaurant' is inedible and should come with a health warning. The internet facility is a joke. When you check out, double-check the bill, since you'll invariably end up paying for services you didn't use and be prepared for some lengthy negotiation. In short, do not stay there!

We stayed at the Victoria for the second time in three years. The rooms a very Egyptian and good value. Staff are very friendly and helpful. However I would not recommend eating in the restaurant. My wife waited over 30 mins for a simple meal before walking out in disgust. Food was cold and late. and not very appertising. I would recommend that you choose any of the many eating places within short distance. The two elderly door men are really helpful and deserve tipping. Ask the reception staff for the directions to the famous Koshary restaurant , well worth a visit.
In addition to the usual tourist sites take some time to wander the nearby streets to get a real flavour for Cairo.
Be careful of un official guides who will accost you in the street. Firmly and politely say NO.
In general me and my family enjoyed staying here and would recommend the Victoria , just have your wits about you.
