“very good hotel”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We are very happy with the presence of such a hotel in our city Ismailia, I am the Head of Surgery department in Suez hospital university, We organized three meetings in the last year , we found there a competent stuff , processing all the orders very quickly . Even when we met some minor problems in air condition or bathroom. The stuff were were responding very quickly with many special thanks to Mr.( Hassan Elnadany), who managed to solve those problems rapidly. I recommend this hotel as number one choice on visiting Ismailia.

I have an excellent experience with mercure Ismailia. My wedding party was in this hotel 10 years ago .... I have an amazing party ... it is the first and last party which hold in the green court. Mr. naidany ... food and beverage Mg. and his crow help me to make this party extra ordinary party ... Really they succeed to make this night one of my valuable memories.

My family stayed here at the beginning of September, as they were visiting myself and my husband who live in Ismailia. They had a room on level 2 with lovely views of the lake. There was three of them so the room had 2 single beds and an arm chair that pulled out into a bed, once this was done though, there was very little space to move about. Even though it was small, the beds were comfy, large TV was good {even though you didn't have the same channels every time you turn it on} and bathroom was stylish {even if water doesn't drain away properly and you have to used like 5 towels to clean it up}. My dad did enjoy sitting out on the balcony, watching the canal ships go by in the distance.
They didn't enjoy breakfast, not much choice and seemed like left-overs from the last meal was always being served up. We did enjoy evening dinners though, buffet was very Egyptian - just like what my mother in law makes!
For those who like to drink, there is a lovely little bar and they do sell local beer and wine.
I personally enjoyed this hotel for its swimming pool and gardens. The pool doesn't look big but once inside you don't care about the size. The temperature was lovely and the pool and area around it is very clean. My daughter enjoyed her first 'swim' in the baby pool. We wasn't the only family there, so even with about 10 kids enjoying themselves, I didn't feel as though we was all on top of each other! A walk around the gardens on the best grass in Ismailia, is a must! But I wouldn't recommend a swim in the lake!
My parents did really like the peacefulness of the hotel, even though it can be busy with conferences etc going on and it is just a 15 minute walking distance to the main 'downtown' area of Ismailia.
The only main problem for them was that there was very few staff who spoke good English. You see the same staff every day, as they do 12 hour shifts, but it a shame that even at the front desk their English is not the greatest and they did have trouble understanding my parents from London!
Overall it is the only hotel of its kind in Ismailia, but it has friendly service, good rooms, a great pool/relaxing areas and the best views of Lake Temsah and the canal. Come to Ismailia and enjoy yourself!

The hotel is quite and has a very good location and view. I've been there several times but this time the restaurant was really not good which contradicts with what I've experienced before. The pool had a perfect temperature. The rooms are a little bit outdated. I asked for a baby cot and it was torn. This is the best hotel in the city. However, I wouldn't rate it past a 3 stars hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room

Stayed here as was visiting my boyfriend's family in Ismailia for the first time.
Read the previous reviews and booked a lake room on the 2nd floor. Wow what a view! It was breathtaking. The room was great, clean with a lovely balcony that looked out onto Temsah Lake. The bathroom looked brand new and was spotless.
The hotel had a lovely pool and barbecue area with steps directly onto the beach. It was very quiet but perfect for relaxing.
The only disappointing thing I found was the breakfast. The choice was mediocre and unappealing. The staff were nice in the restaurant but the tables were not as clean as I would expect compared to the rest of the hotel.
Beautiful terraces for sitting in the shade overlooking the beach an lake, nice gardens and fab pool but I was too shy to go in as no one was around!
I'd definately stay here again. It's central, has amazing views and the staff are friendly and helpful. Just wouldn't eat here as local restaurants serve much better food.
Best hotel in Ismailia I will definitely come back and recommend.
