This is a review of the spa only- will post a second review of the hotel overall. I was very unhappy with the pedicure I received at the spa- the technician barely scrubbed my heels- I had almost as much dead skin still there when I left as when I arrived. I even asked her to scrub more but she... More

As were both the wonderful front and back gardens. Inside,... More

The suites and grounds are beautiful. Since historically ,... More

This hotel blew me away. The first thing you notice is the roadblock that keeps traffic noise far away. If you are in the new tower as i was, there is zero street noise. The other side is the famed "direct nile view". The old building aka historic agatha christie building is very nice too, the main check-in area and... More

Its the best i have seen in Egypt. Great view, staff always trying to help. They are friendly too. Restaurants and bars inside the hotel are offering very good quality and tasty food. Room service is the only thing that we didnt like here but we complained and they immediately fixed it.

Once on the life you have to stay in this mythic hotel : it is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed. I recommend the suite no 1222, in the historic part, with two balcony, one for the breakfest and the other for the sun bath. The view on the Nile and the Elephantine Island is magic ! Great... More

One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. Staff members are friendly, meals are tasty. I especially love the view of the Nile river. They've got different types of rooms for guests to choose from and I personally don't the the price are too expensive compared to other same standard hotels. I'd highly recommended anyone who visits Egypt to... More
