Recently returned to the tivoli a year after my friend died in Egypt, and once again i had a
warm welcome back. I have read recent reviews and some people are expecting a 5 star
hotel, which it is not. However, it is a small welcoming hotel where the staff are friendly and
attentive, and need to be treated with the same respect as they give you. Ali, Ahmed, Massoon, Mahmoud and even the manager Acramie are all so friendly and go out of their way
to make you feel at home, along with Ayman and all the rest of the staff. I always look forward
to staying here, even with the odd small unimportant things that arent quite perfect. I have just
mixed with Egyptian families, Muslim and Christian along with English and others, all getting
along in peace. Take this hotel as it comes and roll with it. It would be hard to find a more
friendly hotel. Also use the hotel taxi with Hamed the driver. Lovable man and complete lunatic
but such great fun.

Room Tip: If you are not happy with your room, ask NICELY at reception and they can possibly help you.

I was there for a week and I couldnt wait to get back home, the reasons where - the rooms where not clean as they appear in the pics here plus there was black mold in the bathroom and hair on the floor in the bathroom. I actually had to get Clorox to clean the shower and then was asked by the man who cleaned the rooms why I was using the clorox and it was like he had never used the clorox in his life....the gnats that are there have no mercy on anyone, had to buy OFF and use RAID to keep the gnats out of the room just to be able to sleep at night.

The BUFFET for BREAKFAST and DINNER is something that I would not expect at a Hotel, but maybe for this one it was ok for the other guest.

As going to the beach, well save your time and find a place at one of the hotels that you may be able to enjoy the private beach at due to the place they take you to is a DIASTER, first of all you have to walk down a flight of steps that are not in the best of shape and then when you get down there you can't lay where you want and the chairs are actually right on top of each other and you have to wear water shoes to get into the water due to the broken rocks and stones that are near the shoreline.

I guess the best thing that I got to experience was going to the Old Market and El Mercato where the shops were interesting and you can find some great bargains but be prepared for the owners trying to lure you into their shops and for the bargaining to begin....

Please, please do more research on where you want to stay before booking here.

I don't know about the timing, but it was kinda crowded at the time of my stay there ... the food was not that good you had to wait about 15 min. to get a table.
The rooms were clean, AC working perfectly, that's one thing i was pleased with.

I guess there might be better hotels but its good value for money .

This hotel is only fit for Egyptians. If you enjoy continually screaming children and even louder adults with terrible food ( all salad and gristly scrawny meat) and disgusting table manners, then this hotel is for you. The so called 'private beach' is shared with 3 other Hotels and is a bus ride away, Internet/broad band is costly, paid by the hour and only receivable outside not in your room and you are continually pestered for: massages, beauty treatment and news papers. The entertainment promised is aquarobics with extremely loud music, still it hides the sound of screaming children. The rooms have seen better days and are dirty and shabby. All in all a hotel to be avoided especially if you have children
