Stayed in Helnan hotel, Aswan for 1 night. The hotel is badly in need of serious repairs. The toilet flush in our bathroom broke again within minutes of the first repair. The room phone was not working and we had to go to the reception area to order room service. Food was ok. Service isn't professional. The only plus point... More

It was much appreciated that the Helnan Aswan was so attentive to our safety and security during our stay. The service we received was impeccable, which really helped us relax during our first night in Egypt. The gentleman even opened up the restaurant (we arrived very late) so my friend and I could have something to drink when we arrived.... More

This hotel is absolutely neglected by the management / owners and what a shame because the competition would give an arm and a leg for its location. It must have seen better days but presently it is in a state of decay. For instance the corridors outside our rooms were ill lit simply because the there was no maintenance to... More

I stayed at Helnan from 26-30 January 2015. The hotel rooms are very tired and require a lot of renovation to keep up with 5 star expectation. The reception staff are ill informed about hotel facilities and entertainment schedules. They need to learn how to smile for a change. The restaurant staff are pleasant and helpful . The food is...

This has grandeur and an excellent location in front of the Nile on Aswan's Corniche. But it is really showing its age. The rooms are a bit shabby. The hotel has terrible internet (and none in rooms) and the dining options are disappointing. For the cost, there are nicer places to stay in Aswan.

Unfortunately stayed here for 3 nights while touring Aswan. In hindsight we should have taken up the tour company's offer of moving us after the first night, but couldn't be bothered. POSITIVES: incredible view of the Nile and privacy from the huge windows; breakfast was a fairly decent buffet with a wide range of food; the hotel is enormous and... More

We stayed as part of a group on 12 on a tour of Ancient Egypt sights. It is supposed to be 5star but really is about 3 star. The rooms were dusty, the bathrooms were in need of a good clean, shower pipe leaked, grouting dirty and gaps between it and bath etc, toothbrush mug had remains of previous use... More

We stayed at this hotel over New Year's Eve.. The building itself is huge and well located, however quite old and obviously hasn't been renovated in a while.. The bathtub had yellow streaks and was a bit disgusting. Also the furniture seems quite old and not very clean ( bed spreads, curtains, couch, etc. ). We also found the service... More

Beautiful hotel. Lovely feel for our Xmas stay. Great condition. The rooms were great, tidy with a beautiful view over the Nile. The staff could have done with speaking a bit better English but were helpful enough. Free wifi was very useful too!
