It was great to stay in golden rose. You are only 200 yards from the beach. 300 yards from shopping area and 10 minutes from airport. Very friendly people just ask and you will get help. Nice roof restaurant and bar very good room and large compare to other hotels. Will visit again.

This hotel is quite average for Egypt, and a 1 star hotel compared to what you'd find in Europe or elsewhere in the world. Just watch out for the hidden charges, taxes, etc that boost the advertised price by upwards of 30%.

Also, there is no view of the sea, unless you're on the roof of the building. The neighbouring properties have put in large trees that obscure the view.

Customer service is also lacking, but that's typical for Egypt.

Room Tip: You must be insistent that you want a room with a view if you're paying for it, or booked it.

Owing to some renovations the hotel sign had been taken down and I had trouble finding it: it's on a side street off Al Arosa sq: look for the Gad on the main street and head towards the sea. When i was there (3 days in Oct/11) there was nothing else on the street but a bellydancing joint and the sides or backs of some other building, although it's being developed for small market shops at the top, which also makes the finding not easy since you get the feeling you are completely wrong and should turn back just before you actually arrive.

The hotel doesn't have its own beach, but has an arrangement with Papa's beach club (5 min walk) to use theirs for free. I would NOT do that, but go to the closer private beach which is 10LE entry but reasonable prices inside so you will easily make your 10LE back on the first drink you buy. Walk south a bit on the main street and you can use the Moon Valley for only 5 LE, they even have a little beach volleyball court for your use.

The beach is for sale in Egypt, and so the private beach thing is a real problem in my mind but it's unfortunately the way of life in Hurgahada: no matter which hotel you stay at, you will have free access ONLY to their beach, or the beach of an associated nearby hotel, and access to any other will require payment. You CANNOT walk down the beach at sunset, you can just pace back and forth on the piece of it that is owned by that private hotel or beach club. A very wide range of prices (I saw prices from 5 - 30LE for entry, plus never bringing food or drink from outside so a similar variation on food and drink service inside) and none of these beaches I would have thought to ever pay to sit on). Again, this is a problem in all Hurghada not just the GR but it's important to know.

Back to the GR, i found the service very good, and mostly polite and friendly. My single room was amazingly spacious, having a minibar arrangement with sink and all in the corner of the room. Room was clean, had AC and TV (didn't watch it) hot water (which wasn't working briefly one night when I came home at 4am) and a tropical style stand up shower that sprays all over the room the first time you use one but who cares, it's the desert. I arrived a bit late after the restaurant had closed (9pm) and, since I had been lost for a bit and was tired, they sent one of the guys to grab a bite and fetch it back for me, personal delivery style. I thought that was pretty awesome.

The wireless intyernet is free in the lobby, typically unimpressive Egyptian quality, and there was also a bar/resto there charging reasonable local prices which is always very convenient. If you want a genuine Egyptian quick bite, go to the GAD I mentioned at the top of the street; 2 falafel pitas for 3LE. No kidding. Breakfast at the hotel was served until 10AM, which is a bit early for me, but I made it once and it was typical Egyptian breakfast fare. I also had a shish taook at the hotel for lunch one day and it was pretty good.

I would recommend this happily at the budget price, with the only drawback really being the very short walk to the next door 10LE cost beach (10 LE ~ USD$1.66) or longer walk to Papa's where you get in free with your hotel key, so factor that in. But as i say that will be a very common problem in Hurghada.

This was the idea place for our fist stop in Egypt. Friendly and helpful staff, good central location and clean comfortable rooms.

Hopefully, once the tourists start returning to Egypt, this place will gain a bit more life and the lovely roof terrace will be back in action.
