4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Everything worked fine. Service was good. Room decoration was nice (like a modern style). Hotel beach (dream beach) was excellent. Location is OK. Taxi to Sakkala costs 5-10 LE and to the Senzo shopping mall 20 LE. There is free Wifi in hotel.
Market near the hotel is good for little shopping and the three men working there were the niciest persons in the town.

Room Tip: Take a room above the reception so Wifi might work in your room. Otherwise you must go to lobby to c...

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.

Room Tip: We were in the room above the reception desk, and it was on a nice place around the swimming pool.

Well, for someone who knows the ratings and standards, two maybe three stars are real value.
Hygiene in the restaurant is awful: you will see even food residues on your glass or plates.
WiFi stands, but only for 512 kbps and near the reception...
And Egyptians are kind mostly, but minority are even rude and try to steal your money...
One excellent thing is the beach: it's really dream beach

The design of hotel is nice-sure. But the service is really terrible! They are too lazy. We asked to equip our room few days. And few days tried to change it in reception-nobody helps. The most bad impression we get from restaurant-not delicious and not friendly! At first we stayed like prisoners to get 1 smallest piece of meat or chicken(they choosed the most small).Then air condition in restaurant did not work -it was impossible to eat. They used to play intolerable old Egyptian music every evening (like metal scratches a glass) and for request to change disc just smiled! Never more we will come to this hotel

Room Tip: In main building you can use Wi-Fi. It is more near to beach & Restaurant

I'd chosen this hotel by chance, without checking reviews, which I actually did afterwards. Because of some of them I was expecting everything but not a nice & cozy hotel. But! From the 1rst step & first sight I liked it. The design was very modern, european. The hotel itself wasn't very big or it just seemed to me, but I can not say that it was crowded, no. The atmosphere is so relaxing, when I opened my window on the 1st day & observed pool area I heard chill out music playing not very loud. On the beach which was also very nice I was listening to Frank Sinatra in the mornings, so I put away my mp3 player & just enjoyed it to the full. My room was cleaned every day, all appliances worked perfectly, no complaints. The hotel staff were very friendly & helpful. The hotel location was really convinient, cause if u want to see more than just staying at the hotel all the time it ll save u a lot of money on taxi, cause it's very close to downtown of Hurgada. So next time when I go to Hurgada, I ll for sure choose Elysees.

We stayed here for 1 week in July 2011. The hotel is good value and generally nice. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The reception staff are helpful. The pool area is well kept. The beach is across the road. If you are looking for an inexpensive and friendly hotel I'd recommend staying here.
