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!

Checked in here on arrival by air from Cairo with "On the Go" tour. Beautiful hotel. Rooms perfect. Views terrific, overlooking the Nile. Service excellent. English good. Had dinner in restaurant by the water. Quite romantic - even at our age! Recommended ++. Early breakfast was accommodated to allow us to depart before sunrise for Abu Simbel.

Stayed here after disembarking from a Nile cruise. There was a conference on but you would never have known it. In fact the hotel had something of the air of a deserted ship The hotel rooms were clean and spacious, but rather bland. Getting a drink or a meal arriving in between mealtimes was not easy. In fact getting a... More

This hotel sits overlooking the Nile just a tad downstream from Aswan. It's a lovely building...well kept and manicured with a terrific pool and lounging area. You access the pool by going under the parking area. The day we were there, it was sunny and 43 C and with no shade it was simply too hot to enjoy the facility.... More
