Holidayed with Grand Hotel, Hurghada a few months ago and the location itself is profound - ideally situated around 15 minutes away from Hurghada International and subsequently boasts a short transfer time.
My partner booked this trip as a last minute surprise as I had never visited Egypt before and all was in order if you are not expecting a five-star service (which is reflected in the price of a holiday here) - below are a few noted points:
Staff - majority of which are friendly and happy to help with the exception of the anomic reluctant individual.
Food - Mediocre and consistent throughout the stay with an unvaried selection.
Internet Connectivity - Absent in many places, there was a slow and intermittent reception in a small room located close to the toilet areas.
Beverages - a fine local brew (Luxor), excellent alcoholic measures. The one abundant fault and failure is the unavailability of bottled water prior to 10:00.
Location - Excellently positioned close to Hurghada's hustle and bustle of the market stalls and shops.
I would recommend the Grand Hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing break with low expectations and a prescriptive budget.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Recently refurbished but retaining its traditional charm, The Grand Hotel's low rise blocks occupy a prime location in the heart of Hurghada's modern resort district. A great value introduction to Red Sea Hotels, its stunning gardens and sweeping sandy beach with on-site dive centre make it a favourite with guests. Close to a wide array of bars, restaurants and shops, it is an ideal base from which to explore. ... more less
