This is a gem of a hotel. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable beds. The setting is perfect, a 5 minute walk from the local ferry and on the edge of the welcoming nubian village. Aswan town is a short hop across the river - but if it's tranquility you want, star gazing from the roof terrace... More

I felt very welcome in this guesthouse. It was clean, the rooms were comfortable and amazing with the beautiful coloured walldecorations. The people treated me like family and I had a wonderful time there. I hope to go back in the future. Its nice to be on the roof and to enjoy the view at the Nile and the desert... More

The place was nice, especially the rooftop restaurant, and the room was basic but nice. There were only 4 of us there at the time, including one who had been there for a month already with nifty "spy camera" glasses so he could take photos in the restricted areas of tombs/temples. Dinner and breakfast were good, but come time to... More

Of course we are happy with the positive aspects mentioned; the rooftop, the rooms, the meals. This is confirmed in many other reviews. But we don't recognize the issue about the transfer rates. We do our best to communicate about our prices transparent. The rates are both available in every room of the guest house and also on our website.... More

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
