Sheherazade Hotel
Ranked #122 of 139 Hotels in Cairo
Reviewed 3 November 2008

I travel a lot, and this has to be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. What a pity, it could be so nice, with that Nileside position. Everything is filthy, breakfast is terrible, there were cockroaches crawling over the tablecloth in the restaurant. I feel sorry for the staff who work in these conditions. You can find much better places in Cairo for a quarter of the price or less.

well,
dallas is disappointing, they cheated us on this trip
about the hotel, i have to say this "IT IS THE CRAPPIEST HOTEL EVER"
rude staff, they took 9 pounds just for 1 call to pizza hut,
AC is useless, no hot water, 2 beds even i was at my honeymoon

i asked them many times to change my room because of the hot water, they lied many times telling me we will fix it, then it appears that they should remove the wall to fix the pipes.

i told them ill go to the tourism authority while i was shouting and yelling, they moved me to a room with a hot water, but still all the hotel stinks, all the beds and floors are very dirty.
breakfast is disgusting, staff is not that good, and they lack to professionalism, all they want is a tip
i asked to upgrade my room to a suite, they requested 150$ daily, meanwhile i can get a nice room in hilton by this amount of money

dont go there, dont you ever think of goin there, you will regret it for sure!!!

horrible. so dirty, no ac, human hair all over, floor not swipped, water in bath tab didn't drain, dirty bads and sheets. staff was very friendly, but that's the only positive thing to say about shahrazad. do not go there unless all you're looking for is a roof above your head and a smiling receptionist.
