Amy Adejokun Section editor

Every once in a while there is a hotel that catches us off guard, that delivers the unexpected and the New Tiran s one of these. One of the smallest hotels in Sharm and one that promises very little from the outside is actually a decent little number right in the middle of it all in Naama Bay. Without all the frills and spills of many a hotel in the area, this one gets the basics right and is a perfect option for either couples or groups of friends on a budget looking for a haven in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the town.

    Location 5.91 /10

    Situated right in the mix of things in Naama Bay, the hotel is just a few minutes' walk from the beach. The airport is around eight miles away while the neighbouring zones of Hadaba and Shark's Bay can be reached in ten to fifteen minutes by car.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The New Tiran is one of the smallest complexes in Sharm. The outside of the hotel is far from glamorous with two satellite dishes and an American motel style sign adorning the roof, while on the ground a collection of armchairs arranged around coffee tables, all ready for groups of men to smoke shisha pipes, run along the length of the hotel. The lobby is a simple, solemn affair with several sets of wicker seating and glass-topped tables around the edges of the room and a PC (20EGP per hour for internet) tucked away next to the entrance. Double glass doors to the right of reception lead straight out onto the swimming pool which is surrounded completely by the accommodation buildings. This is the only outdoor public space but is a pleasant space with palm trees all around, although due to the close proximity of the buildings to the pool, the sun disappears prematurely. There is sufficient space around the pool for the number of guests staying at the hotel and plenty of sun beds and shade. The area is clean and the plants well kept. Outside the hotel, right on the main pedestrian road through the tourist area, there is an oriental café for tea and shisha featuring shaded low cushioned seating organised around tiled tables adorned with flowers. Aside from this the hotel does not offer any other services.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    There is just one category of room at the New Tiran, however it is spacious, bright and spotless. The reddy orange material that is used for the curtains, plaids, bed skirts, cushions and also to upholster the armchairs gives the room a warm feel, as does the check rug at the seating area. The furniture (dresser plus flatscreen television, baggage stand, headboards) all features wicker work, adding to the cosiness of the space. The bathroom is not bad at all with attractive floral tiling, hairdryer, toiletries, however it does only have a small shower cubicle with curtain. All rooms have either a terrace or balcony with pool view, safe and fridge.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Being such a small hotel, there is just one restaurant which serves an international buffet on a one week cycle (breakfast and dinner only). The dining room is a rather non-descript space although it's especially bright during the day. If you are hungry during the day then head to the beach (although you will probably already be there!) and order from a large menu featuring pizzas, meat, fish and seafood as well as drinks, both alcoholic and otherwise.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Being situated just the other side of the road from the beach, within a few minutes' walk you can be basking under the sun. To the left of the entrance is a shisha corner and to the right is the bar/snack restaurant. There are certainly enough sun beds and parasols for the number of people on the beach although they are quite tightly packed in. The hotel has no diving centre, so you'll have to organise this elsewhere, although you can try a number of different water sports (others are available next door at Helnan hotel's beach). The quality of sand if good, the surface flat and jetties allow you access to the coral, around 100m out to sea. To get rid of those knots in your shoulders, you can enjoy a massage on the beach too.

    To know

    While it is true to say that the hotel has few facilities, it is however surrounded by a plethora of shops, bars and restaurants. During the day there is not much going on, however the area springs to life at night and the place is a hive of activity where the colours, sounds and smells of Sharm are to be marveled at.

      One of the hippest hotels we have visited in Sharm el Sheikh, the Bay View is definitely one for the under 30s or those young at heart. The emphasis here is on good times and partying so if you're coming away for a quiet time, you'd probably do best to look elsewhere. The hotel's infrastructure is modest, although this is of little importance to those who come to see a good time and also to those who stay to make use of one of the best diving centres in Sharm.

      This hotel describes itself as a boutique hotel and while it may not be exactly what you'd expect from a boutique hotel in Europe or North America, it is as close as you will get in Sharm el Sheikh. And to be honest, they have done an honourable job. The décor is bordering on design, the complex is peaceful and the rooms are fresh. Recommended principally for couples.

      The Jaz Belvedere Hotel is easily one of Sharm el Sheikh best quality resorts. With its beautiful interiors and very well maintained exteriors, the Belvedere is more of a hotel than a resort. Directly on the beach, the hotel is small enough to retain intimacy and large enough not to feel claustrophobic after a week. The Belvedere is definitely one of our favourites.

You can take any aspect of the hotel, its rooms, its spa, its eateries, its views or its staff and you'll find everything is top draw. If it is top of the range you are after for in Sharm then you can't go far wrong in choosing the Royal Oasis, perfect for couples and families looking for the very best in service and facilities in a setting to die for.

      An all-round good quality hotel compared to most hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. The extension of the Hilton Shark's Bay is neat and well maintained and is separate from the original part of the resort. There is also nothing Egyptian about the place; one could be anywhere in the world. This part of the hotel lacks in atmosphere but is relaxing and guests are guaranteed a fairly good quality room.

      The Oriental Rivoli is without doubt one of the classiest hotels in Sharm el Sheikh. Its sumptuous decoration must be the finest in the resort and all of its services exude quality, from its staff to its food. Best suited for couples or groups of friends, due to its lack of animation or a kids club, it is the perfect place for relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation. Recommended whole-heartedly by Easyvoyage!
