I stayed here at the end of February with two friends. It's a very welcoming place and the owner, Abdul was very concerned with our enjoyment of his hotel. It was very clean, had good food but the rooms are a bit quirky. I had booked two ensuite rooms but when we arrived we were disappointed to find that our... More

This hotel was incredibly lovely and had such a friendly atmosphere. Amazing rooftop terrace with a view of Aswan. Delicious and reasonably-priced food prepared right in the kitchen on the terrace. Also wonderful staff. I would consider going to Aswan again JUST to stay at this hotel and relax! So unique and in a beautiful setting. We were initially worried... More

Amazing place! Abdul is a supreme host and feels immediately like a friend! I would stay here again and again and again! The staff was absolutely amazing as well! Aswan is a very busy busy and HOT city. Bet el Kerem is on the quiet side of Aswan in the Nubian village side and we couldn't have asked for a... More

Our 3 days at Bel El Kerem were fantastic. Peaceful and relaxing: We drank a lot of delicous tea on the roof terrace, watching the children play and chase their camels, and having good conversations with the owner Abdel and his crew. We also enjoyed playing table tennis in the beautifully decorated recreation room. The food is exceptional and delighted... More

What a lovely place to stay! Amazing view of Aswan, the Nile and the Tombs, basic but comfortable rooms, very welcoming staff and great food. Bet El Kerem felt like home. The staff were extremely helpful and Mohamed was a star. We stayed for 4 nights with a toddler and a baby and they had lots of attention from everyone.... More

Bet el Kerem is on the west bank of the Nile at Aswan, just a few moments on foot from the ferry jetty. It's a great location, quite literally on the edge of the desert, and extremely peaceful. The only problem with the location is the very aggressive nature of the ferrymen, who will try to rip you off every... More

We visited the Bet el Kerem at the beginning of March. It was a very pleasant departure from your usual hotel. We wanted something quiet and peaceful, and it was perfect. The meals are a more communal affair, and the cook was very accommodating. We even had boxed lunches packed for our day trips for 5 euros each. They do... More

We stayed 4 nights in a family room with our two young sons and we all had a great time. There are so many positives about this place - it's quiet, it has an amazing view, the food is fantastic (especially the buffet supper!!) and the staff seem like they honestly want to hang out with you.

We appreciated the exceptional hospitality at this place. The owner is very helpful and makes you feel like part of his family. He simply loves people and in particular children! The place has a roof terrace with a wonderful view over the Nile and the desert. You can also hang out in the garden in front of the guesthouse. The... More
