Room is good and better than expectation. Heater is not working. The hotel has some distance from nile river, so room with river view might not good as expect. There are many good restaurant opposite the hotel with beautiful Nile river view.

Standard rooms with good beds, heat, aircon. No elevator - rooms on 2nd floor or above - maybe some on the 1st floor? Location is great, although the only nearby restaurant with beer/wine was a semi-expensive Chinese place. Breakfast was exceptional! Fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, bread/butter/jam and freshly made crepes with fruit filling! Sanka, of course. Very nice woman serving,...

We had a room with a Nile view: - When we arrived the bathroom was wet! They cleaned it but they forgot to dry it. - The restaurant was not clean. We had to clean our table before having the breakfast! Although, it was supposed to be a clean table! - There was no liquid soap from the first day!...

This hotel is located on a very convenient location on the corniche and close to the old souk. You can literally walk out and cross the street and take a felucca ride. Many rooms face the Nile and have great views. But with the convenience comes a price: it can be quite noisy at night (from the street), and the...

Clean hotel, but it is very BASIC. 3 stars at best. Nice staff . Very loud at night as windows lack insulation. Bathroom was clean but again - VERY BASIC. Breakfast in the morning is not a buffet, rather a bed and breakfast type setup. No elevators.

Stayed here for 2 days prior to getting on a cruise. Staff are very helpful especially Sarah and Mahmoud. They organised our cruise and our trip to Abu Simbel which included a breakfast box for our 4am start. The rooms themselves are small and shower over the bath a bit cramped. Wifi worked intermittently and restaurant breakfast was so so......

We stayed here for one night before joining a cruise. It's situated on the waterfront with superb views. Very clean, lots of hot water and good internet. Only problem, the tourist souk is up behind the hotel and it's very busy. Also, there are not many places to eat immediately around the hotel.....you need to be thre for longer than...
