After 30 hours of travelling I arrived at the hotel exhausted and eager to have and a shower. The first room I was shown was right at the end of the corridor on the first floor.... this was strange in itself as the hotel was almost empty... why put people as far from the lift/stairs as possible?
Then the door lock would not work and while the staff were fiddling with that I was waiting for the a/c to start cooling the room which was pretty hot. However the units louvre would not move to the fully open position so the cold air was not be directed across the room/ Also the a/c units are tiny. They might be half ton units for a fair sized room.
Eventually they gave up on the door lock and the A/C didn't seem to be cooling the room so we moved to another room.
The other room was pretty much the same but I did manage to lock the door. All night the A/c was set on an optimistic 18 degrees celsius but it never got below 24. When I got to the bathroom I found there was a bath tub with a shower unit but no shower curtain or shower curtain rail.... is this a new concept of "wet floor" bathroom?
The TV channels do not include any English channel news which is pathetic for a business hotel. The quality of everything was very average... sorry not very good way to describe the place but you would understand if you experienced it.
The staff were ok. Polite and reasonably efficient. The wifi was not working when I arrived but when they got it started it was ok and complimentary which it needed to be as it was very slow as it is in most places in EG.
In the morning I about to leave the room for breakfast but I couldn't lock the door. So again we had a farcical attempt to lock the door.... I gave up, took my valuables and computer down to the restaurant and had a .....very average breakfast.
So if you are on a budget and don't mind a no frills stay then this is your place. I think $180 for this place is about twice as much as it should cost but then this is Africa and you can't expect good value for money.
