We choose this hotel as it was close to the train station and we needed someone close as we were arriving late at night. It was ok. Service, clean and room all ok. Nothing outstanding. Ok value for money, however West Bank much more better value and enjoyable.

Really not that bad. If you look at it in function of the price it's really not the worst. Big room, with fridge and bathroom. Reception girls barely speak English but with a bit of effort you'll manage. One of the staff members knocked repeatedly on our door to try and sell us all kinds of stuff from alcohol to viagra. Bit of a negative point

I wanted to stay at a really, really cheap hotel in downtown Aswan and I found it. Not for the fainthearted, this hotel has seen better days. This hotel was something out of a set for "The Bourne Supremacy". I didn't expect much for 13Lbs Egyptian but the AC worked and there was adequate hot water and that was good enough for me. It would have been nice if there was a small fridge though. The staff was cool once you got to know them. The big boss "Madame" was pleasant enough but didn't speak English and neither did Ana, her assistant during the day. Peter, the night concierge was swell and spoke perfect English and we spent a lot of time shooting the breeze in the evenings. Isaac, who was the midnight to morning concierge and doubled as the driver. He was fun to be with when I booked a tour of the Upper Aswan Dam and the St. Simeon Coptic Monastery.

My (obviously) outdated Lonely Planet guide book said that the Oscar was a "traveller's favorite" with a pleasant rooftop terrace, complete with Stella beer. This place was a dump. Even by Egyptian budget hotel standards. The younger woman at reception was pleasant enough, but the older lady in charge was extremely surly and unwelcoming. The room hadn't been cleaned in a very long time, and there was leftover food covered with ants between the two beds. A hole in the bathroom window had been plugged with wadded up garbage bags. There was an inexplicable circular hole about 3 inches in diameter right through the bedroom wall to the outside. While the room did have an air conditioner it was completely non-functional. Worst of all there was NO rooftop terrace, and NO Stella beer available. Don't even waste your time on this craphole, there are several other adequate budget hotels in Aswan that cost the same and are far better.
