It's a basic nice hotel. Staff is ok, and food is good. I prefer rooms with Marina view. It's in the heart of the marina close to everything. They give a free passto Moods beach which is a nice calm beach. Great for couples more than family though.

We felt that we were in Europe not Egypt and the street festival was really amazing and deserves a 10/10. Also I want to give my thanks to the receptionists Moeen and Fady and the housekeeper Aiman and the Steakhouse... More

The location is very good, in the middle of the marina, 5 mins walking to the beach (pretty nice one). Breakfast is average. Staff are very friendly and helpful. You have access to pool in Aly pasha hotel which is 10 mins walking. I recommend it.
