Location is the most important thing when choosing the best hotel in Hurghada

After you have read lots of reviews and researched Hurghada hotels for hours, you have five candidate hotels. All these hotels are highly-rated and all of them have their own special facilities. At this point, it gets harder. This is the point when the location comes in.

If you want to go shopping and see the nightlife, you will probably want to book a hotel which is located close to the city center.

In case you want to spend quality time alone with your partner, you will book a hotel from a quiet area, isn’t it right? Or what about children, which are the best areas to stay with kids?

Hotels in El Mamsha

If you are travelling with the kids or physically disabled people, I’d recommend you to choose a hotel close to El Mamsha (village roads).

Mamsha is a 4 kilometres long pedestrian zone (location from google maps here) from where you find some shops and restaurants. It is easy to stroll there with strollers and wheelchair, kids can run and play there without worrying about the traffic and cars.

Mamsha is also a good choice for everyone, who prefer to stay in clean, calm and safe area.

El Mamsha is a safe area for children.

The most popular hotels which are located in El Mamsha are:


Steigenberger hotels: Steigenberger Al Dau hotel, Steigenberger Aqua Magic and Steigenberger Pure lifestyle (Adults only), White beach Albatros hotel, Giftun Azur Beach Resort, Sunrise Aqua Joy Resort.

Mid-range hotels:

(Address: Magawish district or village roads or Sahl Hasheesh road).

Sahl Hasheesh is located about 15 kilometres away from El Mamsha (google maps link here). It’s a very beautiful place with the best beach and 14 km long beach promenade.

The most popular hotels are Albatros Palace Hotel, Titanic aqua park, Desert Rose resort and Sunrise Garden Beach resort, just to name a few. Outside the hotels, there are small bazaars and shops for tourists.

Hotels in this area are very nice, but there is not much to see outside the hotel area.

If you want to go out for a walk, for example, you need to take taxi or microbus. If using a taxi, Uber, Careem or microbus is not a problem for you, then this area may be good for you. It’s a calm area and has the best hotels and biggest aquaparks in the city (pictures below).

The most popular hotels which are located in Sheraton area in Hurghada are:

Hotels in Sheraton Road: Sea Gull resort, Bella Vista, Mini Mark, Regina Swiss resorts and Roma hotel.

If you want more action, choose a hotel closer to Sheraton road/Sakala. The hotels in this area are good, but since they are bit older, they are not rated as five star hotels.

Sheraton Road is a very busy and noisy road, from where you find lots of shops and restaurants (Google maps location here).

Old Sheraton road between Mamsha and Sakkala is also a good choice, even for the ones who don’t want that much action. Old Sheraton road is much calmer area than Sheraton road, but it’s close to both Mamsha and Sheraton road (Sakala).

Traffic in Sheraton Road is extreme, and the pavements are high, which doesn’t make it ideal for children and physically disabled persons.

But, for the ones, who want action and don’t mind noisy surroundings Sheraton Road is a good choice. Personally, Sheraton is my favourite area in Hurghada, but for some people, it’s too much.

Sheraton Road is a walking distance away from Marina, which is a must to see in Hurghada. Marina is one of the places in Hurghada, where accessibility is good.

The most popular hotels in El Dahar, Hurghada

Last but not least, Dahar (Downtown) and Arabia area (Location here).

Dahar is the oldest part of Hurghada, and there you can actually see the sea. In other parts of the city hotels hide sea very effectively, most of the time I don’t even remember I live next to the sea.

In Dahar you find bazaars (souk) and can get touched with authentic Egypt. It’s a very busy area and not so easy to move with children.

There are some budget hotels in Dahar (Triton Empire, Magic beach). The biggest hotel resorts probably are Sunny days Palma de Mirette in Arabia area or Hilton hotel, that located next to the new shopping center Hurghada city mall.

All in all, you can always move between different area by taxi or microbus. No matter which area your hotel locates, I recommend you to visit them all. All the areas have their own atmosphere and personality. This is what I love in Hurghada. Everything for everyone.

Which is your favourite area? Mine is Sheraton, but for the first-timers, it may be a little bit too much. But who knows which you like the MOST before you COME AND SEE  yourself.

I hope I helped you to choose the best hotel for you,

Enjoy your holiday,
