Where to Stay in Hurghada?
Hurghada is one of the Red Sea's most popular destinations. As such, there is plenty of accommodation, from vast resorts with sea views and extensive amenities, to more basic hotels offering cheap deals. While it is sometimes possible to get last-minute hotel deals, some of the best rates can be secured if you book in advance.
Many of the big resorts and tourist hotels can be found in a lively area called Sigala and in the somewhat more peaceful coastal strip to the south of here. Much of Hurghada's nightlife is concentrated in Sigala and this lively area is perhaps best suited to those wishing to be at the heart of the action. The resorts further to the south tend to be more exclusive - and pricey - but make a good choice for families or those seeking a quieter place to stay. Further back from the seafront are more affordable hotels and resorts.
More budget options can be found in Ad-Dahar which is north of Sigala. This area is home to a colourful bazaar and offers a choice of more authentic restaurants outside of the resorts.
Hurghada Accommodation Options
Although independent travel in Hurghada is possible, the vast majority of holidaymakers visit the resort on package holidays. If you are booking accommodation independently, the best deals tend to be secured in advance, although it is sometimes possible to get last-minute deals.
There is accommodation to suit all budgets in Hurghada, from no-frills hotels to a huge choice of mid- to high-end resorts. The resorts south of Sigala tend to be the most exclusive and offer private beaches and a wide choice of facilities. The board basis of these resorts varies, with many offering all-inclusive deals which include all food and beverages. There are plenty of mid-range hotels and resorts. These are often further back from the seafront, but may still offer swimming pools and air-conditioning. Hurghada's cheapest hotels are often fairly basic, but some share the amenities of other local resorts so you may still have access to more extensive facilities.
Hurghada Hotel Recommendations?
For the ultimate five-star luxury, consider the Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh. Its suites come with private pools and are situated in 48 acres of gardens with a private beach. For something more central, the Hilton Hurghada Plaza has a pleasant beach, pool and health club. In lively Sigala, La Pacha Resort is a more affordable option in the heart of the action.

Hurghada International Airport is 5km from central Hurghada. It takes approximately 20 minutes to drive from the airport to downtown Hurghada and it is possible to get a taxi at the airport. Car hire is available at Hurghada International and in the resort itself.
