I arrived early after a flight from Cairo. I was lucky to get an early check-in around 10am. I booked a Nile View room which was neat and tidy of about 3.5 star standard. The room had a safe, bath shower with a very ordinary shower nozzle and comfortable bed & pillows. The small mini bar fridges are not cold...

We stayed here two separate nights in late Oct 2016 (with a gap in middle for overnight to Abu Simbel). The hotel's location is really convenient on the corniche, a step away from the ferry to Elephantine Island and a few blocks from the night market and street food :-). Hotel prices were higher in Aswan than Luxor overall; don't...

Only stayed in Philae for a night but it was very nice with a great view of the river, warm and clean. Friendly staff and good breakfast. The pillows were very hard, a littlle too much noise because it's on the street and wifi a little too slow but other than that it was great.

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...

I wish I could stay longer than a day. Free pickup from airport and room given faced the Nile River. The room is clean and spacious.The breakfast was very good and exceeded our expectations with the variety and had the best falafel served for brekky. There's also a Vodafone shop nearby to buy our Egyptian sim card. There's also many...

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.
