It's nothing but a bed to sleep on and a great view of the nile. In the middle of the downtown and just two minutes from the railway station. If you are in Aswan for business only, it's a good choice for low cost trip.

We stayed here only for a night. Next day we went to Abu Simbel. The room was awful!!! I didn't want to touch or stand on the carpets. The diner ... it wasn't bad. The soup was good and the main food too, but the desert didn't taste very good. The forks and knifes were dirty. I wasn't satisfied with... More

Please don't stay here! This hotel was a nightmare! My husband and I stayed here in 2014, and had the worst experiences. We planned to stay the first of two nights, then catch a tour early morning to Abu Simbel. This never happened due to an accident we had in the hotel bathroom. When we first checked in, the lobby...

I spent 5 nights here during my solo bicycle tour from Cairo to Aswan. Things I liked ============================== Excellent service, the best I have had in Egypt or anywhere else in a long while. Acceptable English, especially with Eman, the charming, smart and helpful lady at the front desk. She had a Masters degree in English Literature, and spoke fluent... More

The Hotle is very quit and very near to the train station ( railway station ) and Nile view rooms has fantastic view and price is suitable . If you can't get a Nile view room no problem you still can enjoy the same view from the roof and seats is available .

We visited several hotels as we had a small budget. This was a very good compromise. The personnel were very helpful and the hotel was clean. Only downside was that there was no real coffee. But that was the case in all the hotels we stayed in all down the Nile and on the Red Sea. This is probably because... More

Nicely located close to ferry station from where you can go to the West Bank. We booked 3 rooms for a party of 8 people, and two of the rooms (we stayed on the 5th floor) were really big for the price. You can also have a nice view of the Nile and West Bank from some of the rooms... More

The hotel is very centrally located, just a short walk from the railway station with breathtaking views of the Nile from the rooftop. I personally spent a lot of time up there and enjoyed the rest and tranquility. I arrived here tired and weary but felt that I was received like family. The staff took a genuine interest in my...

First, the hotel is just around the corner from railway station, google map showed it some 3 Kms away, so we hired a cab to cover the distance of 150-200 mts :) The rooms are old fashioned and need a serious make over.
