Rooms large and clean, bathroom working with hot water, towels.
Traffic noise, but that’s what you get when the room faces the Nile and the street along the Nile.
Breakfast was mostly prepared stuff, like butter, honey and cheese, but you get an omelet.
WiFi was sometimes working everywhere, some times only lobby, sometimes not at all.

Stayed: March 2018

Stayed in Philae hotel for 3 night. Room was very clean and spacious, with nice comfortable beds. Breakfast is very good and staff would accommodate pretty much anything the guests ask. Staff is super helpful, nice, and respect guests privacy. Do not miss!

Room Tip: Nile view rooms are more noisy since they face the street. Rooms at the back don't have view but more quite.

Outside the hotel doesnt look very appealing. But inside the room was wonderful with a stunning view of the Nile. The front desk was soooo nice. Waling distance to many shops and restaurants. We had a wonderful stay here

Lobby gives the idea that the hotel is very old, but the rooms are ok. Laundry is extremely cheap and fast. My sweater got a little shrunk, but everything else was fine. Lunch took FOREVER to arrive, so plan extra time for that. Wifi is free and was steady reception, which in Egypt is AMAZING.

13 nights in Egypt; with a tour group that has wisely chosen a number of superior hotels ; this is another one of them. Breakfast buffet so excellent. Most hotels will pack you a substantially lunch kit if you are going to airport before the breakfast hour. The rooms , the staff, the location, security and comfort will suit even the most critical tourist. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I am a sound sleeper... I was never disturbed by any extraneous noises
