Reviewed 3 July 2014

My (obviously) outdated Lonely Planet guide book said that the Oscar was a "traveller's favorite" with a pleasant rooftop terrace, complete with Stella beer. This place was a dump. Even by Egyptian budget hotel standards. The younger woman at reception was pleasant enough, but the older lady in charge was extremely surly and unwelcoming. The room hadn't been cleaned in a very long time, and there was leftover food covered with ants between the two beds. A hole in the bathroom window had been plugged with wadded up garbage bags. There was an inexplicable circular hole about 3 inches in diameter right through the bedroom wall to the outside. While the room did have an air conditioner it was completely non-functional. Worst of all there was NO rooftop terrace, and NO Stella beer available. Don't even waste your time on this craphole, there are several other adequate budget hotels in Aswan that cost the same and are far better.

Room Tip: Pick a room in another hotel! This place is crap!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights after booking it through STA. Although we are not adverse to staying in cheaper, budget-type hotels we found the Oscar to be pretty dire all-round.
After a confused check-in (no-one really spoke any English) we were shown to our room and after the half an hour we needed to unpack and have a shower the bumbling receptionist knocked and asked us to move rooms, with no explanation. With him loitering disconcertingly we rammed our things back into our bags and we moved to a seemingly identical - apart from the presence of a fridge - room. The only other difference was that sink tap leaked so badly we resorted to using the bath to clean our teeth.

While the room was fairly spacious it wasn't altogether clean with the walls and ceiling in desperate need of a re-paint.
having stayed in many hostels, back-packer type places we probably could have lived with it although compared with what we have paid for hotels in other Egyptian cities it represented very poor value for money.

After the farce with the room change breakfast proved to be a similar challenge. After being told it was on the ground, then the 1st floors we finally followed the waitress/chef/dogs body to the 4th floor where she unlocked a drab, dusty and dark dining room from another era, which didn't look like it had been used for some time. She then prepared us an adequate if basic meal for us (jam, hard boiled eggs, bread, black tea).

Check-out was equally shambolic with confusion rife over the fact that we had paid for the room in England.

Whilst the hotel isn't on the Nile along with virtually all the other hotels the location isn't all that bad as you are right by the souk and just about walking distance to most things and only 5-minute walk to the train station. Being where it is you also get a good insight into local life however is this enough to justify staying here? Probably not. Especially not at £13 UK we paid for the room per night (compare this to St Josephs in Luxor at £16 a night).
