Ignore the previous comments with all the negativity because Sylvia really did a great job improving the place. There are curtains, a new installed deluxe airconditioning, enough towels and sheets and a small table and chairs. In general it's a neat place, large kitchen with all you need and an amazing fridge and freezer, stable internet for webbrowsing, the bathroom and shower is good also. There are several movie channels on the television (also English).
The swimming pool is very pleasant to swim laps (diagonally) and has perfect temperature water for doing it.
There are 2 super markets extremely close by and the main road for the bus to Hurghada or El Gouna (just 4 EGP) is 100 metres away. If you like to go to a gym, try the one on the main street (if you walk from the TIBA building towards the bifurcation of the main road, 100 metres to the right next to the cafes). Just for raw body building btw ;-)
Basically, the appartment is amazing and I was very happy to stay here for 6 weeks :-)
Finally, the host Sylvia was incredible fast with reacting on messages and showed really caring about your stay to be pleasant. If she can solve problems, she will. Thumbs up for such a renter!
Ich kann leider den Gästen nicht zustimmen.
Ich hatte vor meiner Abreise nach Handtüchern/Duschtüchern gefragt. Ich bekam die Antwort, daß 4 Stück im Schrank seien.
Ich ohne Duschtücher losgeflogen. Leide waren nur 3 Gästehandtücher (mini) und ein normales Handtuch in der Wohnung.
Wie man von europäischen "Möbeln" reden kan, weis ich nicht. Es ist lediglich ein Bett und ein Schrank in der Wohnung.
Die Spüle und der Herd waren derart dreckig..Wenn man warmes Wasser wollte, lief der Erhitzer über und die Wohnung stand unterWasser. Mohammed , dem ich das mit den Handtüchern und dem Wasser gesagt hatte , interessierte es nicht wirklich. Wofür er 12 Euro für die Reinigung verdient hat, ist mir ein Rätsel.
Ich sage mal... nie wieder !!!!
Silvia is excellent at communicating and answered quickly. Mohamed, the receptionist, is very helpful and welcomed us warmly. He sent us in the good direction to get our laundry done for 1 EGP per piece. The neighborhood is more than 10 kilometres north of the happening Sheraton Road but it was fine for us as we wanted to relax and write. When we did go to town it was very easy. You just hail a white mini van for 1.25 EGP until Dahab roundabout (lots of restaurants, supermarkets, beach, etc) and from there you get another one to Sheraton Road for the strip of touristy joints and Burger King. So, this is a return trip for 2 people for less than one dollar! We are told a taxi would be 25 EGP (around 4 dollars) each way. By Silvia's appartment there are simple restaurants, coffee shops and 2 pubs, also 2 good supermarkets. The appartment itself is a small clean studio. It has pots and pans but we hardly cooked since we were there during a terrible heatwave so we just ate watermelon and sandwiches! Silvia is telling me she will purchase an AC unit next week which will help a lot! The internet is a double check-in and worked no better or worst than anywhere else in Egypt (we updated our blog so not too shaby!). The foldout bed is ok if you sleep with your feet towards the back rest. The pool is clean and big enough to do short laps. Basicaly the price is right!
The Communication with Silvia was all the time pretty good.
But I personally had 4 major issues with the apartment, that’s why we left after the first night (we booked for 10nights).
-Cheap, More or Less Clean
-Mohammed is really helpful
-Super Market right close to the apartment and a bar down stairs
- A few cafes close by as well
- the Apt is close to the shore line but I am not sure about well know beaches close by we didn’t not check but saw a couple of resorts gates close by around 10 min. walk.
1. The apartment is really small!
Ofcoz I knew somehow that it is it just ONE room but I didn’t expect it to be soooo small. So simply it was my own mistake.
2. There is NO AC, just a Fan, there was an internet router/WIFI that is connecting but no data flow so “no internet”
And the worst thing is that there are NO Curtains it’s a one sided glass window but still past noon it’s as good as a transparent glass.
That is for everyone who like a bit of privacy bad enough but it gets worse at night as there is a big Construction Light directly infornt of the widow. Means there is now way to darken the room. And it is one the side of the pool so there is no fresh Air coming in, just a lot of mosquitos.
3. The Sofa is very very uncomfi as a bed and believe me I am not a picky person.
4. Location: somewhere in the middle of nowhere. It took us at least 15 min by cap to reach Hurghada City (not the center just the City).
The whole Area is a huge New Construction Area, which is not nice for now but maybe in 5-8 years from now it could develop to a nice area.
All in All i do not recomment the place for more then 1 person+you need car.
