Located between two city cores of Hurghada, Elysees hotel has an excellent location (5 L.E. is a taxi to any of the city downtown's). Restaurant is fine (but menu was the same for the whole 10 days I was there). Hotel beach and swimming pool are great.
But what makes me give an average grade to this hotel was the service, which is terrible. Bed sheets were not changed each day, and when they were changed, once I've got an dirty sheet from another room. I noticed that by a cigarette ash on a sheet and a lipstick trace (someone wanted to mark its sheet to see if it is changing). Service on the beach and restaurant was the same. Guy working in a restaurant was drinking water from a clean glass and then put it among the clean glasses! I was on a all inclusive arrangement, and I couldn't get a drink I want when I want.
I decided to have a holiday in this hotel because of the recommendation of a friend. He was there a few years ago, and he has great experience with it. Some of the people I get to know on a beach was also in the hotel few years ago, and they say that the service back then was way much better than now.
