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!

I have to stay in Hurghada occasionally for business, and I am just not the kind of person who enjoys a gigantic all-inclusive resort. Sol Y Mar suites is the perfect solution. For a good price, you get a large suite, separate bedroom and living area, with kitchen and balcony. Everything was clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. It is not on the beach, so if that is important to you, probably want to stay elsewhere, though there is a pool. Very convenient to the airport also. Breakfast was not extensive but good.

A few negatives keeping me from giving 5 stars- One, the internet was not working during my stay. That is, the wireless network was fine, but there was no connection behind it. Staff said that there was a problem with the company, which happens often in Egypt, and it is very likely that there was nothing the hotel could do about it. Second, the coffee was terrible. I guess I'm a bit of a coffee snob but I don't expect top quality at a free hotel breakfast- still, this was barely coffee. More like hot, slightly flavored water. Finally, the place is right next to some kind of children's play area, so expect screaming kids during the day. This wasn't really a problem- didn't go late at night and the rooms are well soundproofed.

All in all a good value for money, good option if you don't want to be stuck on a sprawling resort. Would definitely return.

Stayed at Ivory Suites for a week in Feb/Mar 2013. Weather was perfect, sunny and warm in the day, fresh and breezy at night (take a jacket!).

Very impressed with the hotel, overall style is simple and smart. The staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke great English. They answered all of our questions and even helped organise a day trip to Luxor for us (5 hr coach trip away, trip incl Karnak Temple, Valley of Queens and boat trip on Nile - Highly recommend.)

Rooms are very clean and large with everything you need. Kitchen has fridge, crockery and kettle which was all we needed.

Hotel is not on beach but does have small pool with plenty of sun loungers. Hotel offers access to a local beach called Old Vic which is 20min walk away and is only 15 L.E pp. They also offer access to huge 5* Iberotel Aquamarine Resort (10+ swimming pools, beachfront) which is 15min drive via minibus which is included in 45 L.E pp price. Nearest Supermarket is 3mins round the corner and had great selection of food.

The driving in Hurghada is fairly sketchy and there are thousands of taxis that all want your business! We happened to find a taxi driver who was sane who gave us his phone number so we could call him whenever we needed a lift around the town - I believe this is common. Isam, if you read this -Thank you for all your help!

One personal recommendation on Hurghada - none of the supermarkets we came across sell alcohol, so if you want it for your room, get directions to nearest duty free shop within 48hours of arrival to stock up!

We cannot fault the Ivory Suites, it's not a luxury five start hotel but it was personal and perfect for our short stay.

We chose the Ivory Suites because of the reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. No the hotel isn't by the beach or a big resort complex but we felt we had more personalised service because it wasn't - even having a drink in the bar with the hotel Manager. Everywhere was clean, the rooms were very spacious and all the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us.
If you want a large complex then you can have the best of both worlds - for a small fee you can get a shuttle bus and go to the sister Iberotel Aquamarine hotel for the day. The fee includes transport all the hotel facilities and a soft drink - at the time of writing this was 45E per person.
There are restaurants within walking distance but we also found for a very small taxi fee we saw most of Hurghada and I think this was the benefit of not being in a large resort .... we went out and saw other things!
The breakfast was good quality and plenty of choice.
Mahmoud did amazing towel animals every day for us and he took pride in doing animals we had never had before.
We had a two bedroom suite so got a view of the pool area and a quiet road the other side. Next door to the hotel is a garden cafe and they seem to specialise in children's parties. There were occasions at the weekends when there was children's noise going on until midnight so if you don't like children try and get a room at the front.
Wifi is good and we were even able to get this from our balcony on the 2nd floor.

I spent 4 nights in Sol Y Mar Ivory Suits hotel with my family in Hurgada last week, a very nice hotel suits located not very far from the Hurgada Famous Promenade.
The offered prices were attractive compared to the hotel standard, The staff were very polite & taking good care of their guests, very clean & wide bed rooms & living room with balconies, Kitchen contains wide fridge & reasonable kitchenware (but no microwave or oven is provided) , Rather nice - but not luxurious - breakfast is served daily, you may order your lunch or dinner meals at a reasonable price when needed. The bathroom & shower supply (soap, shower gel & etc.) are not up to 4 star level.

Room Tip: Ask for a rooms with balcony, facing the swimming pool if available.
