#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Gharb Seheyl
It is an authentic hotel on the west shore of the river Nile of Aswan featuring the magnificent Nubian culture and by the way Anakato means “our home’’. It consists of 3 Nubian houses (Wer, Owy and Toski) characterized by the colorful decorations illustrating the Nubian civilization. Everything in the place is different! The amazing Nile view hugged by the desert gives you a great chance to isolate yourself from the daily hectic routine and just enjoy the tranquility and nature. Every inch in the place represents the Nubian culture; the walls, the rooms, the passage and the food as well . You will find countless activities to enjoy at the Anakato hotel ; a boat ride to discover the river Nile‘s mysteries, sand boarding, a camel ride, Nubian folklore, natural therapies like sand burial to cure various diseases such as rheumatism and rheumatoid arthritis and masks which will leave your skin silky smooth.

Aswan is the most beautiful place on earth, and Anakato is the place where you can really enjoy Aswan! Location is exceptional, outstanding view and atmosphere. Staff are amazing, from the minute you arrive till you leave they are all helpful, decent and polite. Food is very nice when it comes to oriental, but you’ll miss a lot if you won’t go around to other restaurants in the area. Using boats in transportation is quit an amazing experience, view in the Nile of Aswan is an exceptional experience.

I stayed for one night at this place . The view from my room was great ,you can enjoy the River Nile and hear the sound of water flowing. The staff were so friendly and showed great hospitality . The Nubian meals were awesome and the Nubian room style was great . Maybe the only drawback is that there was no means of entertainment specially that I was the only guest at the hotel . But if you were looking for a quiet relaxing stay then this can be your choice .

We had a fabulous experience and time staying at AnaKato. Chymaa the manager was amazing in helping and organising anything we wanted. We were two famillies travelling together with 5 children between the ages of 6 to 16. Every morning we had the most amazing breakfast served to us on the banks of the nile under the shade of a beautiful tree. We ate dinner twice in the hotel - delicious and lovingly prepared by their chef. Anakato has 3 levels of accomodation (at this point in time) and we stayed in the middle one. The location was good with views out onto the nile and lots of outside terraces. The area is quiet with a local nubian market down the road. It is taxi or boat away from central Luxor but an easy and enjoyable journey. Definitely recommend taking an open top tuc tuc. Our highlight was a bird watching boat trip at sunset with an excellent guide.

Facility is new and well designed , Nubian rooms .. with magical Nile view . We stayed at Ankato KiKi .. which considerd the top level of accommodation in Anakato's rooms .. its also called "aljazeera" the island .. cos in summer it is fully serrounded with water. Hospitality was great from the owners and the management team especially Chymaa Ghaleb who went extra mile in every aspect to make our experience a pleasant and unique one. She invited us to her Nubian themed birthday which was so much enjoyed. Access to the hotel is a bit challenging especially if you're planning for daily trips It is advised to make a deal with a local driver which we have seen more convenient even than uber The hotel provides transportation ,but a bit pricy The rooms are simply designed in way that keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Breakfast needs more varieties. Rooms need to have TVs installed ,more rubbish bins and tissues. A perfect placec to meditate and get lost in a book Infront of a magical nile view. Definitely will visit it again.

My family and I had a great time at AnaKato. We had the opportunity to sit with Shaymaa, the manager, and just hearing how passionate the staff is about this hotel is something you don't see everyday anymore. You truly do get the traditional Nubian experience, please keep this in mind. If you are looking for a basic hotel that you can find at any part of the world, you're looking at the wrong place. If you are looking to immerse yourself in the Upper Egypt culture then please get a room at AnaKato. The food here is marvelous and this is coming from a true Egyptian. Highly recommend the chicken. If you can, also take a day to wake up for the sunrise. The view is absolutely gorgeous. A tip for future guests is to bring mosquito spray; it's worth it.
