A very charming and comfortable hotel, right on the corniche and very handy to local shops, restaurants, ATMs, etc. A great launchpad for a tour of the Temple of Isis on Philae Island and Abu Simbal. Lack of a lift limits access for people with a disability.

Overall decent for the area, but somewhat basic by Western standards. Good service and nice location. Wifi was just OK, and no elevator. Breakfast buffet was good. Rooms were fine - nothing special, but good enough.
