An old but very nice hotel. Very friendly staff. Staff always on the sweep and wipe. You are here but in Egypt what some kommentartoren probably did not understand, therefore you can here also no german cleanliness expected. It would have been much too strenuous the entire vacation after blowing to check availability. Such people should rather stay at home, and in its corners clean. The food was mostly completely sufficiently, even for egyptian conditions …  read hotel review

Despite the tense situation, the service staff was very hard, all requirements. Especially the staff in the restaurant and bar area. Exceptions are also here, as everywhere. The menu repeated in the weekly rhythm. The food is in the last 3 years have improved. By the, the hotel attached diving station sub aqua, no day trips with the tauchboten offered. Reason: the jetty is verottet and belongs to the Nachbarhotel Pensee. Repair uncertain. So you were in the, however beautiful, reef limited. Zodiac is weather limited possible. In spite of this still a good value for money. Since the hotel ... was under egyptian management is, one wishes oneself sometimes the organization of a european management. Advantage: no russians, mostly regular customers. read hotel review
