Wonderful little guesthouse on Elfantina Island. Frankly, before the trip, we were in doubt, firstly, whether it was worth looking for a hotel on the Elephantine Island (where one has to sail on a boat from Aswan), and secondly, if we can trust small guesthouses or is it better to choose a large hotel in the center of Aswan. It turned out that, first of all, living on Elephantine is better than in the city and 5 minutes by public boat (it departs every 10-15 minutes and costs 5 pounds = $ 0.30), there is no vehicles on the island and therefore it is very quiet and peaceful, no hassles, no aggressive souvenir sellers and taxi drivers. As for the guesthouse itself, it is exceptionally clean (a rarity for Egypt), comfortable for living, there are two verandas and a kitchen where guests can cook their own food. There is a small grocery store 100 meters from the guesthouse, or you can buy groceries in the city center. You can also order breakfasts or dinners, if you wish, the prices are quite affordable. The rooms are comfortable, the mattresses are good, the internet is fast, the owners are pleasant and unobtrusive. What else do you need for a good trip?

This is a small family run Nubian guesthouse is situated on quiet Elephantine Island 1-2 mins walk away from local ferry mooring that costs only 5LE. The relaxing rooftop has lovely views over the Nile, The Cathedral and The Old Cataract Hotel. Mohammed (the owner) was friendly, welcoming and spoke good English. He can help organize tours in Aswan and early morning boats if you are leaving to Abu Simbel. The room was clean, tidy and comfortable. The guesthouse provided a good breakfast bag for my early start. I really enjoyed my time at the Nuba Dool Guesthouse.

This is a very quaint little B&B nestled on the side of Elaphantini Island, directly as you land on the "government" ferry boat, which costs 5le each. There are no roads or cars on the island although there is a traditional Nubian Restaurant that served food and Alcohol. The rooms are large and clean and the family who run the accommodation are absolutely lovely, they are extremely attentive and can't do enough for you. Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace at a time of your choice. It's a traditional Nubian meal with eggs baked in the oven with vegetables, a great selection of cheese and preserves with creamed potatoes and beans. Excellent stay and such a great family.
