Wallace180's review of Victory Downtown Hotel


“Terrible hotel Downtown Cairo - Victory Downtown Hotel”

written by Wallace180 on 13/03/2022

I just booked the hotel for 3 nights in period 18-21 february 2022 on Booking.com. We came to visit Cairo.
We arrived a group of 10 persons with 4 rooms at 5am in the early morning after a night trip with plane.
When we arrived at locationa - because we have a lot of luggage we must make more than 10 times ways with elevator - an antic one to 5th floor (the floors is very high - 4-5meters).
When we take the room we have the first shock - the rooms have a lots of issue.
Because of that we decide to not stay there. So we pay for one night (only cash - the POS not working) and stay from 5am to 10am all group - because we was very tired to go out directly.
The problem is the photos on presentation is done when the accommodation was new probably, so the reality is other - in fact everything is very old and dirty.
It is the first time when I make such a mistake - because on Booking.com they have 8.7 from more than 500reviews.
In the morning at 10am when we go to breakfast we see very dirty table and floor at the breakfast. Prabably the cleaning standard is very low in such location.
More than that - the bed and bath is very freaky decorated (you can saw in photos). In a few hours of resting one of the paintings come in my head. My allergy was in a very low shape (see photos with walls). The door entrance in the room was with painting glass - so we hear very easy every move on the lobby, when come and out every guest for other rooms (some of them was noisy kids). The temperature is very low - about 17-18 degrees (they not have heating system) - probably the air conditioning working - but for a few hours we not use it.
Also the view outside of the room is like in the war zone (photos)
All the times I am wondering if only my group received such of these rooms - because is unbelievable the rating on internet - I stayed in accommodation trip more than 100 times but is the first time when happened this. The rating is fake for sure (a normal rating is between 5 to 6 from 10 level).
I can not rating them on Booking.com because they cancel my trip on Booking.com..
Hope to see my review when you want to book this accommodation!
