Good location in a small town..

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Nov 2010
We stayed two nights at this hotel as part of our tour. It was a nice place to stay - to be honest, it looked like the nicest hotel in the town that I could see. And it's location was great.

The Bahariya Oasis is a small place with no a lot to do, so it was nice to have a good hotel room to return to. The room was fairly standard as Egypt goes - we had two single (and hard) beds with one pillow each. There was a working AC in the room, a small television, wardrobe and bathroom. The bathroom was typical with no bathtub, but at least this hotel had a raised partition to stop the water from the shower from flowing everywhere (it still managed to get all over the floor). All rooms also featured balconies which were great for enjoying the sun, drying out your clothes or seeing the oasis from a high perspective.

The rest of the hotel was nicely appointed, with a big lobby and comfortable seating. There was a restaurant in the hotel that served good, typical Egyptian food (rice, chicken, potatoes) and reliable, fast Internet was for use on a computer at 20 EGP per hour.

Right out the front door you have access to a lot of essentials. First, and most important, the only place that serves beer in the oasis is across the street - the Popular Restaurant. There are also a few shops that you can buy food, water, chips, etc at very reasonable prices. Finally, there are two internet cafes on the street although their internet was never working so we used the hotels.

You could walk to a few of the Bahariya attractions from the hotel - the Golden Mummies and the two tombs across the street. The hotel also doubles as a company that will organize any sort of desert trips you'd like to take including camping.

Overall, this was a good place to rest the head for a couple of days. The rooms were typical standard rooms, the hotel was able to organize any sort of trip you wanted and the location in the small town of Bahariya couldn't be beat. I'd absolutely stay here again.

        Reviewed 4 July 2010

        Spent two nights here, and was glad to have a clean, cool room to relax in after hot and dusty days exploring the desert and oasis. The room was very large, with a spacious bathroom. The shower caused some puddles, but was otherwise fine. The rooftop patio was a bonus.

        Had a wonderful time at this hotel, the staff were extremely friendly and professional, rooms were clean, meals were delicious and its location is excellent for western desert touring. I would definately recommend this hotel and a camping trip in the desert, there drivers are also extremely professional. As a solo female traveller i felt comfortable here and will look forward to returning.
