I booked online. It was all done in a friendly manner and they were happy to take payment on arrival. They took care of our visit to Abu Simbel and gave us an upgrade to our rooms. The Nile Valley has never been more peaceful a place for holidaying as it is in 2013. Anyone who wants to see the...

It's always hard when staying at such a highly rated hotel but sorry to stay we were disappointed! Fistly the reception man is not very friendly check in was just the same as anywhere simple and not much smiles. Being a young married couple travelling we are always asked single or double bed knowing the culture and rules we kindly...

We spent 7 nights at the Philae, which is very conveniently located in Aswan across from the Nile. Ms Hanna and her staff were extremely accommodating and personable. The rooms are very adequate and exceptionally clean. The breakfast was more than sufficient. Be sure to make reservations for dinner. It was not advertised. You will not be disappointed1

We had a Delux King Room with excellent Nile view and also very clean. Ms. Hanna is so nice to meet all our requirements. Philae Hotel is the best one if you a looking for a hotel between 5 stars and motel.

We stayed in the hotel for one night and was given a small but beautifully decorated room in Nubian style facing the nile. The staff made all the possible efforts to make our stay as comfortable as possible that included arranging cookies for me in early hours of the morning or making me use the internet without charging or more...

We spent 4 nights here in December, a very well run, very clean hotel. Everybody who worked there was pleasant and helpful. The location overlooking the Corniche is difficult to improve on and we had a balcony. If I had a criticism it would be that the breakfast could do with a little more imagination, Aswan's markets are full of...
