After a few days of staying at Hilton Cairo Zamalek Residences, guest Dina Kamal noticed something shocking: the peep hole on her door was reversed, looking into her room’s entrance, which lay adjacent to the washroom.
It’s also “where the closets were (an area of getting dressed / undressed) and directly facing the bed,” she writes in her Facebook post.
Dina realized something was off when she discovered that the peephole cover, which would normally be inside the room, was on the other side of the door instead — as is clear in the photo below she snapped from the hallway.
She immediately went to management and explained the problem.
“The managers apologized and I ended up not paying for my stay,” Dina writes on Facebook, “but I was still baffled at the situation; a complete violation of privacy!”

How creepy! The thought of a stranger staring into my room from the hallway gave me goosebumps. Please share this warning so that everyone can remember to check the peephole when staying at a hotel.
