Omg there is nothing nice that can be said about this place. You walk in and its dull there are 4 lifts only 1 worked not good as i am disabled and was put on 6th floor. First night drumming by the pool from 9pm (went to sleep with ear plugs) still drumming at 8am next day so asked to change rooms so moved from pool view to sea view. This room was slightly cleaner the other room omg where to start tiles lose and broke half a toilet handle so cut my hand flushing explained why the toilet was black as people obviously didnt want to flush, switches hanging off the wall 1 light switch working, i could go on, any way next room got woken at 12 am by people ringing the room so unplugged the phone next they were knocking the doors we went down and complained only to be told its ok they will be going in a few days. So tried to get back to sleep they started banging all the doors shouting and playing football on the landings. We went down at 8am and waited to speak to manager and demanded to be moved we had to pay to change hotels but was worth it. We were not the only ones who moved from this tip we met another 4 couples who moved... they must make a fortune out of this.

If you've been to Egypt before, you'll know that the tourist industry has taken a real hit over the past decade. Looking at photos and info on hotel sites, you'll probably see information that's a good few years out of date. Most places are tired and need updating, and the Empire resorts are the same. They used to be very popular and all 3 hotels had good write ups. If you've booked over the phone or online, you may have thought you'd booked for one hotel then been shocked when you actually arrived as were we. Our taxi first stopped outside the Royal which looked ok, but we had to get back in and then arrived at the 3 Corners. It's a busy road near the hospital, lots of traffic and arriving at night we couldn't see much! The lobby was dark but looked ok and the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was a huge "suite"; a double and a single bed, fridge, sofa, tv and dressing table. Air Con works, a little noisy but ok. Hairdryer given. TV is new but foreign channels only. Wifi in the lobby area. Everything is tired tired but clean. We changed room the next day as overlooking the road was very noisy with the traffic, so we ended up with a room facing the pool. Towels are changed and bed made daily, bed not changed through the week. Shower does heat up eventually, but you need to let the water run for quite a while and it will only get warm. There are not many guests, most put on the 6th floor... (23 rooms occupied when we were there!) The hotel has 2 pools but unfortunately it doesn't seem to get much sun apart from in the morning as surrounded by buildings! We were advised that we could walk to the sister hotel (Empire Beach) for beach access and lunch. It's 350m or so walk down the street (walk on the opposite side to the shops to avoid hassle) and you walk straight through reception, opening onto a lovely garden then a few pools and sunbeds by the beach. Sunbeds are comfy with mattresses and the ones on the beach have wind breakers around them, beach towels to collect daily. You can ask for a red flag so that the sales guys don't bother you also, although the massage and boat trips were good prices and well worth it.(highly recommend Dodo and Eman for hour massage) It's a small but nice section of beach, good for swimming and snorkeling. The pool bar is open from 10 and they have the usual beer, cocktails ( Egyptian alcohol) and soft drinks plus tea and coffee. Write ups on hotel sites say that there is a buffet restaurant plus Belgian and Italian and Peanuts bar. All food was served in the small Italian restaurant; breakfast and dinner buffet style from 7.30 to 9am and 6.30 to 8pm. Possibly due to small number of guests this is the only restaurant open with simple food offered. There's always rice pasta & potatoes, fish and beef and sometimes chicken; simple Egyptian dishes with salad selection, soup and breads. It is almost the same every day and lots wouldn't like it or get fed up! Lunch is served at the sister hotel (Empire Beach), with a wider variety of food, again tasty, not particularly hot but ok...soup, salad, rice, pasta and usually fish and beef again. Don't expect any Western food. There is an animation team and various activities if you want to get involved (again at Empire Beach), not sure about evening entertainment. Pharaoh's revenge hits most people, there's a pharmacy directly across the road with Antinal for diarrhoea and anti spasmodics etc not expensive... cheap suncream too. There's a little guy in the lobby at the hotel but he appears at Empire Beach also, Ramadan Ali: helpful with getting out and about, if you need a taxi, where to visit and boat trips or safaris. He even gave us useful Arabic words to keep the shopkeepers off your back! Walking to the Empire Beach hotel you'll pass Alaa's shop and he can make you a herbal tea for any ailment and isn't pushy for a sale. If you go out of the hotel and turn right, there are lots of shops selling the usual tack (they'll all try to get you to look!) a few coffee places and even a burger and pizza takeaway. We found a supermarket selling at local prices which was useful for snacks and stocking the fridge, although even at the hotel it's only £1 for a litre of Coke. There are minibuses that go past the hotel and beep their horns. Ramadan helped us get one the first time; 2 Egyptian pounds per person and is an adventure! We got off at the mall near the Hilton (shops, cafe and cinema) and went to the New Marina twice for dinner. Lovely place for a walk and drinks or meals. Highly recommend the Nubian Sky for Egyptian food. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for; a cheap holiday in the sun, decent weather, free drinks and basic food if you want it. If all you want is a base to sleep in the sun, swim in the sea and chill, this is fine. If you're wanting top quality modern rooms, a wide variety of international food and lots of good entertainment, definitely look elsewhere!

Run Away From The Hell It can't be named a Hotel or Hostel or any thing related. It can only named “The Hell On Earth”. First: Staff I can't find words to describe them . They like vampires in movies Receptionist meet us with dirty shirt & Slipper Bellman was like drugged my family was afraid from him & his attitude House keeping services not clean the rooms but they make rooms more dirty No Room Service in this building. Second: Rooms I Don’t speak more about rooms I will let this to the photos. Bathroom totally destroyed Refrigerator like pictures emit a dirty smell Old Beds, Dirty Sheets, Dirty Sleeping Cushions, Air Conditioner Sound only and no could air coming from it. We are family 8 adults taking 4 rooms and we changed about 9:10 rooms and every room has horrible problems . Third: Food & Drinks: Our rate: All Inclusive Drinks in bar or restaurant presented in papers cup. Mineral Water : They present a very low quality Mineral Water, We couldn’t drink it and we bought water from outside. Soft drinks: the same like water they present a local low quality product. Food is the same every day no changes The same Breakfast, The Same Lunch, & The Same Dinner “All the days 24/7” But the problem is that It can’t be eaten, I think the Chef didn’t taste any thing presented or may be they didn’t have Chef at all. All food spicy not suitable for Childs Fourth: The Pool & The Beach No Beach in this place the Beach in sister hotel All Pools & the Beach was very crowded and not clean. Conclusion: We have lived four days in “Hell On Earth” and will never repeat it again Run for your lives

Rooms nice with air conditioning, staff friendly and helpful. Food awful, not catering for Europeans. Snack bar you have to pay, bar open from 10am to 5pm, Mainly full of Egyptians on their holidays. Definitely not UK 3 Star by any imagination, Half hour drive from the marina /airport. Avoid at all costs?

we choose to transfer here for empire beach due to the better decor and pleasant room offered when we were shown when we wanted to move from the empire beach. we were disappointed by the beach hotel room but were very impressed by room 625 at the empire .hamdy at concierge was lovely he ensured we were given a lovely room on transferring from the beach to the empire and he come with us to collect or suitcases from the beach hotel and pulled them to hotel empire .he was full of smiles and friendly. all staff were supper friendly the 2 mohammads at the pool all ways trying there best to speak English and all ways made us welcome setting towels up even helping us have fun in pool by joining in music And games we were playing as a couple. the manager and his deputy were lovely allways when out of their way to talk with guest and greet them every day they saw them/ us they would converse. my husband and I much preferred the empire hotel to the beach as the staff at empire were friendly the pool seemed bigger there was more seating areas inside and out.the building looked cleaner and more homly in Egyptian character with decor. you can use the allenclusive at the beach hotel till 5pm and the beach and towels so we had the best of both worlds after transering a lovely room and access to beach when we like . the down side the food was a bit repetitive day and night for 4 days, but once we approached this with staff the menue changed to give different choice over the rest of the 10days.the food was good quality however go early as sometimes food can be standing a while which depressed the lovely quality when cooked and fresh . there was one night of entertainment which was belly dance, which was a shame as there is plenty of space for entertainment and when we did have it all guests were delighted believe more entertainment at the hotel would be a huge bonus to the hotel and the morel of the staff and guests. this hotel is mostly for Egyptian guests as it's in the old town were eygptions live and work not a typical tourist destination but bomt be put off as your made more then well come in hotel and the community. I would recommend this hotel over the beach hotel anyday thanks empire hotel what lovely service and staff in our holiday phil Davies couple xx

This hotel was too unprofessional, although that I have paid for two nights in advance, they insisted that I should pay for all accommodation in the check-in!!! and they did not inform me when I have called at the first time!. The staff was too unprofessional, we are asking for the towels for more than 5 times per day!!. The food's quality was horrible and poor, I was surprised that they did not have milk for the tea or coffee!!, and when I have asked for a cup of tea, they told me that you can get it out of the hotel!! Please do not go there, they ruined our vacation!!

The staff were always nice and welcoming, however there is a staff member selling tours that was very imposing and made us feel very uncomfortable! After countless times of telling him that we were not interested he continued even more strongly, following us around the hotel, we even witnessed him doing it to other tourist at the hotel. The room we had been given was big and very spacious but the BATHROOM was completely unnacceptable! The towels were brown, even when changed daily and the shower itself didn’t work properly. It would continuously spit brown water and then after a few minutes would trickle out water. On top of this, we didn’t have any hot water and so had to use a different room to shower. The breakfast was average, and on one evening, we witnessed the cook and kitchen staff having a physical altercation. If we could re do this trip, we would never stay here.

Intrepid booked our group here. Not a deluxe hotel by any means although better than some they booked us into. Rooms typical of Egyptian indifference to detail - paint splashes from reno days, filthy couches, cloudy windows, broken trim, occasional rusty coloured water, the pool has plastic bags and leaves floating around, poor to no internet anywhere and certainly not in your room. On a positive note, the meals in the restaurant were nicely presented and were quite tasty. But would not chose this hotel again.

You get what you paid for and I did not pay a lot for the 14 nights all inclusive, I booked a single room and was given a suite the room was clean but needed updating it was cleaned everyday by a friendly staff, food was ok that is all you can say about it, if you just want somewhere to sleep and have food it was fine which was what I wanted.
