“Cozy hotel in Hurghada”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Mind you, the smaller rooms are kinda too small, but nice and clean. My husband and I had requested a double bed and we got two single ones, so they moved us to a larger room on the third floor, with 3 balconies, nice sea view and quite nice. The breakfasts were nice. From there is easy and cheap access to the Sheraton Street were are all the inexpensive (and mostly hassle free shops) and restaurants. The staff are friendly, specially the night shift reception guy. He recommended us tours to take and took care of the arrangements. Do not expect fliers or brochures of the tours, as in most of Egypt. You can take your pop or water at the room. Other hotels will confiscate your drinks and food! The coffee room next to reception is nice. Mind you, it is common for employees all over Egypt to be smoking at work, so don't be shock when you find the guy there smoking, or the taxi drivers smoking. Your left overs of food you can take it to the Sheraton Street to feed the dozens of stray cats. We had a very nice time there. The only place nearby to eat is across the street to the left on a pizza kinda restaurant place. Prices are good and food is tasty. There is nothing else where to eat nearby for lunch or dinner. One night there was loud music there at this restaurant, but we just turned on the heating and no problema. This is a nice hotel, for budget travelers. It is not luxurious but it is cozy and clean. There is no elevator. There is free Wifi at the reception area.

Room Tip: Ask for the bigger rooms. The normal ones are quite small.

The hotel is good and the room is clean. The breakfast was not good so we eated at the hotel that was opposite and it was much better and bigger for little more money. I dont think that the people who worked on the hotel was boring, they were helpful and happy and they liked to play with our children. First we was getting 2 small rooms but then they changed the rooms so the whole family could live in one room wich was good.They dont have a pool but the hotel opposite have it and you can go there for free with a card that you get when you check in. If you live here I want to give you a dinnertip: when you go out of the hotel - go to the right and then go to the fish restaurant. Very good fish for not much money...!!! HAPPY TRAVEL IN HURGHADA

Came here from Luxor and was immediately struck by the unfriendly and unwelcoming attitude. Not a smile in sight. I paid for the room and my change, a screwed up note, was chucked back at me without a word. The hotel itself is not bad, clean although the room was small. I wouldn't recommend it. Breakfast was served by a morbid chap who falied to say good morning or anything for that matter. What a change from Luxor.
The Geisum complex across the road is available to use for guests of this hotel but strangely not in the evening? Apparently you have to 'pay' to go in and use the restaurant or bar in the evening.

Watch out for the taxi drivers in Hurghada who routinely overcharge and the restauranters who give you things you didn't order and then try to charge you for.

At least in Luxor you are overcharged with a smile, but here it's much more serious.
I suspect this attitude is due to the many gullable tourists who don't pay attention to their bills and probably aren't even aware of the exchange rates and the Hurghada locals prey on this.

Overall 'tourist' Hurghada is still a building site, as it was ten years ago, seemingly full of unhappy locals ready to pounce on unsuspecting visitors. Move inland away from the beach strip the people are more pleasant and the town much better although with little of any interest.
