Speaking of Dying Hotels

posted by on April 24 at 11:36 AM

I stayed at an almost-deserted Egyptian hotel at Abu Simbel on Lake Nasser last week that seemed to be forever hungover from some heyday 20 years gone. The dilapidated nightclub bore a giant “welcome to 2006” painted on the rusting roof. The rooms were mosquito infested and mouse turds hid under the bed.
Nefertari Hotel pool, then:
and now:
More on my trip to Egypt when I recover from the nasty bugs that hitched a ride home in my guts.

You should see the hotels near Central Station in Frankfurt, Germany, talk about nostalgia... at least you had a pool ;)

That looks awesome, actually.

I hope you didn't bring back any bedbugs from that hotel. I wouldn't be surprised if they had it.
