The location was probably the only decent thing about this hotel.
When we finally got into our room - i wasn't surprised - it was what i would call 'egyptian' clean. The floors were unclean - no bare feet here......the bathroom was disgusting - hair everywhere, suspect drip marks on the walls around the toilet, and the back of the door was black with dirt. Even better - i checked the bed - hairy pillows and when i pulled back the covers - there was a huge blood/ faeces stain on the sheets. Complained immediately and asked for the sheets to be changed. However when we returned to our room 7 hours later they still hadnt changed the sheets. Guys on reception thought it was hilarious. Also no hot water for the first day.
the staff were pleasant and the foyer impressive.
the bathrooms were very tired with no shower curtains and fan held up with string, also they were none too clean could scrape the grease off the soap dish. Air conditioner very noisy. Generally run down except for foyer.
Nile view room. Good front staff at day time.
Demand of tip. Night front staff offer costly transfer to airport. Sometimes elevator did not work. Noisy air conditioner.
Fantastic room with balcony, with awesome view of Nile. Rooftop terrace fantastic. Location great - near train station, Souq, and Nile.
I do not have anything that I did not like about the hotel.
The location was good. But, it is the only nice thing of the hotel.
The room an the entire hotel was not very clean and, most of all, when you check out, you may have to be ready to pay the total cost in cash. When I was checking out, the creditcard mechine didn't work (I guess they falsified) and they asked me to pay by cash. The price was 308 USD for 2 nights. But, they show us the price in EGP in much higher exchange rate. Fortunately, we had enough cash in USD. Otherwise, we had to pay in EGY, which was more than 340 in USD.
The rooftop terrace, proximity to train station and souks. The lock on our patio door did not work and when we complained about it, someone came up to our room and put one on.
It was ridiculously overpriced for what we got -- even compared to other hotels we stayed at in Egypt -- but that probably was because we were there right after Christmas and prices were inflated due to timing. Staff at front desk was not very helpful, except for one guy. Many people go to Aswan specifically to go to Abu Simbel (as we did), yet the people at the front desk were unable to provide us any information about how to get there or who to book a trip through -- we ended up wandering the streets until we found a travel agency that we could book it with.
Employees are very friendly, location is nice with a nice view on the Nile
Hotel is old, requires maintenance. Small rooms.
Although the employers did their best, I cannot say anything that I liked during my one night stay at this hotel. There is no maintainance of the hotel facilities, therefore everything is old and not clean. The food was reasonable to good.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Great location on the riverfront overlooking a park. Excellent Nile sunset views from the rooftop terrace. Nice room and very good value for money overall.
