“Great Place/Lovely People/Amazing Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

Firstly, this hotel is very close to the airport, my girlfriend and I left the airport in a mini bus and we arrived at the hotel within 10 minutes. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist (Hossam) and another member of staff took our bags and we met him at our room. The hotel is very clean and all the staff were so friendly throughout.
Breakfast was great, there were a variety of pastry's, fruits, juices and they did all sorts of egg variations. Dinner was great too, there was a choice of 3 main's each night, usually chicken, fish or beef, and you also got a starter (soup), a plate of salad and a different desert every night.
Chilling by the pool was great, the pool seems cold but once your in its fine, however- if you are looking to lie in the sun till late, the hotel will block the sun, putting all of the poolside in the shade from 3pm ish. This was fine though, because after a day of sun that was the last thing we wanted.
The hotel has links with Iberotel Aquamarine, a 5* super-hotel with everything you could want, it was around £4.50 per person which included use of hotel facilities (pool, beach etc), a free drink and travel via mini bus each way (11am- 5pm).
In Hurghada all the beaches are private but the hotel offer a discounted price (£1.50 per person) for a days pass to a very nice beach (Old Vic Hotel's beach).
My girlfriend and I absolutely loved the incredibly friendly people, whom could not cater to your every need any more. We loved the large, spacey apartments with great air conditioning and 2 balcony's. We loved the fact it was a 10 minute walk into town or 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket. Hossam and his crew of employee's were the most amazing people we met out in Hurghada (we met loads of people) and you will more than feel at home staying in this friendly and calm hotel.

Situated close to the airport and a short 5 minute walk from the shops this hotel is ideal for those who want a quality living space with fabulous service at very competitive rates. I will NEVER use another hotel in Hurghada! Quite simply the best!

we stayed for 3 nights its very clean and peaceful and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
room was very comfort and good furniture and i was surprised of its huge areaand it has big kitchen. the view is on the road.
The pool is small and the water is cold as ice and almost no sun (in shadow).
i was going to take diving course so i didn`t need sea in the hotel.but its far from the sea.
the resturant was very good,they got the basic in the breakfast,i have ordered dinner in the room
(pasta & pizza) tasty and cheap.
it is near from airport and walk road (el mamsah).
i would go there again if i am going with friend not family.

We stayed for a weekend away from Cairo. Wow! Very clean, amazingly friendly staff members and convenient to downtown and the diving center. We've not tried the food so we can't comment on that one. For what we paid for a double room (half-board included), it's the best value your money can buy.

I can recommend this hotel. I stayed 5 nights there. The price is fair, the service is very good. The rooms are very clean, I especially have to praise the excellent cleaning crew.

In future I would go there again.

I stayed at this hotel for a night before heading out to a Liveaboard, and then again for 1 night on my way back home. Based close to the airport so transfers are quick.

The room was spotless and very spacious for 1 person. The staff were very helpful, they spoke good English and taught me a few Arabic phrases that helped me on my trip!
