“Simply with the best location in Hurghada”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

If you are looking a simple hotel in the middle or in the best part of Hurghada, then Bella Vista is one of the best choices there.

Bella Vista is a simple hotel, in the beginning of the main street. If you have luck (and you don't forget to give 10$ tip in reception) then you may get a room with a view to beach and/or to pool, if your not so lucky then a view to roofs next to Bella Vista is guaranteed.
Don't expect something luxuries, it's a small and simple hotel, with simple and clean rooms and services (SPA, gym etc.).
If you have choose ALL INCLUSIVE package then I bet you will regret this as the food was really poor and almost the same in every day. Twice a week they have special evenings with an extra menue and with additional fee. But I bet they will offer the same food next morning or lunch or dinner. All inclusive package includes also local soft drinks and alcoholic beverages (do not drink the red wine).
The most important - the location is absolutely the best. In the beginning of main street, near to the fixed priced store Kleopatra and to the hundreds of stores. Within 5 minutes walk you can enjoy a good coffee at the Costa Cafe.

My recommendation - try to get to the roofs of Bella Vist, especially in evenings as the view is amazing at that time.

For conclusion - a simple hotel, with excellent location.

Located in the center of Hurghada at sheraton road, mid-size, intimate, private beach with a coral reef, nice and clean rooms, friendly helpful staff, varied menu. Perfect for those who like buzz of the city, shops, cafes and restaurants.

Room Tip: All rooms with balconies and from the first floor overlooking on the sea. From the ground floor, you...

I think it depends what is the purpose of your trip that makes this hotel "good" or "bad". If you are planning to spend all days inside the hotel lazing in luxury, you might be dissapointed. If you're looking for a decent enough place to sleep at night it fits the bill perfectly.
We were on a diving holiday, so this hotel was great as it provided just what we needed - simple but clean room, early breakfasts before long day diving and dinners in the evening. Food is ok, nothing to write home about, however almost the same everyday - I can see how one can get sick of it if staying longer.
As for the comments about astray cats - yes the hotel is full of them, but so is whole Hurghada.
I would recommend going there if you get a very good/cheap deal.

BUT whatever you DO NOT get talked into using the on site SPA (if it can be called that anyway - there is lack of simple hygiene everything was dirty and shabby and as far from a "spa" centre as it could be). The whole experience was cringy and I could not wait to get out of there... Really regret spending money on it, so don't fall in the same trap and stay away.

I have been living in Hotel Bella Vista for 3 weeks. Generally the hotel is nice, clean and well-organized. Mr. Hamam, the coordinator is always making sure that everybody has a great time at the hotel. Mr. Khaled at the Paradise bar is one of the best service minded bartenders I ever met. He is kind and smiling all the time even in the late evening hours. The pool bar and lobby bar are very nice as well. The beach is nice and clean, Mr. Hisham, Taiab and the other good staff are working nonstop for providing you a proper beach area. The restaurant is always open on time with very nice and hardworking people like mr. Hany.
I talked to the owner Mr. AbdulFatta, a very nice and down to earth person with a good sense of service.
The reception could have been much better. Some staffs at the reception are impolite and talking to the guests in bossy way. It is a shame since the reception is the face of the hotel.
Once I was going to 2-days tour and I took my blanket with me since the weather was cold at night. But the receptionist took the 20 $ blanket from me, even though I paid more than 3.000 $ for my trip!

We travelled to Egypt with expectaions only to be very disappointed the Hotel is tired and run down the food is not very good either. The same meals served every day. The beach area is very small and restricted to your hotel, so unable to go for long walks along the beach. For Christmas Eve they built a huge Bedouin Tent on the beach front where we were served our xmas dinner, this of course reduced the very small beach front to half its already small size. The chefs went to a lot of trouble to prepare this banquet and it was on a serve yourself basis the same as the dining room. There was one sitting so you can imagine the chaos when everybody went to fetch food at the same time. By the time you had waited in line for your food it was inevitably cold. Such a shame because it was a magnificent spectacle. The entertainment provided in the hotel was zero. The carribean beach bar was the best place to go after dinner every evening. But you had to pay for your drinks, so having booked and paid for all inclusive it was galling to say the least. The base boom went on till 4am (from where we never discovered) and the call to prayer started at 5am. so sleep deprivation was added to our list of reasons not to go there !! I would like to add that the staff were mostly lovely, happy and very helpfull.

We had booked and paid for the Steigenberger Al Dau Club only to be told they were pulling it down so they offered us the Bella Vista.Not as big as the Steigenberger but we had a lovely time.The hotel is situated right on the beach(bit crowded)but we were up early and got the best sun trap there right on the waters edge.ALL the staff were very helpful and friendly and we had gorgeous weather (27 degrees every day) we probably will not return as we like to try new places but we would highly recommend The Bella Vista. Give it a go we stayed 15th-29th December. TRY IT

Room Tip: Take a boat trip to Giftun Island, well worth it.

Receptionists were unable to do simplest things without an argue. I emailed for a room reservation and no answer at all, then called, and no one seemed to understand english, or having good will to.
Food was not perfect, and was always the same, all week. I could take foods with closed eyes in the line. It was only international food, not a clue of Egypt cuisine.
Room were nice, well-cleaned, nice view, but seaside was small, too many people crowded in a small space.
Ah, last but not least, everything you wished out of sleep and food, you had to pay for.
Internet, better not talk about: few PCs and a guy with no idea of basic problem solving.

Room Tip: High floor, otherwise you will hear animations inside your room
