I've stayed at this amazing guest house twice. Once in the melting heat of the summer, and again in late spring. Both stays were fabulous and keep me wanting to come back. It's not a 5-star resort, and its not really a hotel. Its more of a bed and breakfast. Which, the breakfast is great- traditional Nubian food and bread,... More

I stayed at Bet El Kerem for 2 nights this past month and I greatly enjoyed my stay. You can't beat the room for the price, and everyone I met went out of their way to be kind and accomodating. I booked a trip to Abu Simbal and a felucca to Kon Ombo through the hotel, and both trips were... More

As the title suggests, I had mixed feelings about this hotel. It was difficult to choose a rating, but I decided to go with a "4" since I believe the owner and staff are doing their best to provide a quality experience to their guests. However, I will go ahead and write a detailed and candid review so that people... More

I stayed here for several nights during my stay in Aswan and was impressed. The roof offers a great view of Aswan and is the location is very quiet. The staff are very accommodating and you can organize your day trips through them if you like. The facilities are also very clean and amenities are available to guests.

My wife and I stayed at Bet el Kerem on our way from Cairo into Sudan and had a peaceful, quiet one night stay. The views from the deck are lovely and the chefs spoilt us with good food during our brief stay. Folks were very friendly and helpful at the Bet el Kerem including Musa the driver who collected...

Our stay at Bet el Kerem was superb, and we are very thankful to have stayed on the much more relaxed West side of the Nile. The staff was very inviting and always kind and trying to help us with getting the best out of our trip. Ali is a great boat captain and doing a day trip on the... More

This was a fantastic antidote to the chaos and smog of Cairo. The friendly atmosphere make this a great place for lone travellers. Even if you don't bother to venture far from the hostel, you will have a relaxing time looking at the beautiful view. I would definitely recommend their trips. There's lots to choose from, clearly priced in booklets... More

Bet el Kerem is a great place. The staff and Abdul are honest and warm-hearted hosts. Very good homecooked food, best Dinner I had in Assuan! The location itself is pefectly situated. Tranquility and beautiful nature surrounds Bet el Kerem. And the ferryport is just a stone's throw away. I loved the ferry boat to Assuan, peaceful atmosphere and after... More

I have traveled a lot and this is one of the best places I have ever stayed in! Abdul, the owner, is the kindest man I have ever met, I truly mean that. He was beyond friendly and always willing to help with anything, whether planning a trip to Abu Simbel or just sharing tea in the afternoon. The dinners... More

Beit El Kerim is a beautiful and magical place. The rooms are clean, and each has a great view of the Nile and of Aswan across the Nile. The food, which is eaten in the traditional looking restaurant on the roof, is quite good. It should be experienced by every traveller to Nubia.
