The entrance is breathtaking and the views of Nile river. River front pool with all the amenities and staff. We were very happy with the wifi and complimary bottle water. There were two displeasures: spa staff harassed you to partake in their overpriced services and our bed was unleveled and sinking in the middle. But they provided us with iron... More

Lobby is beautiful and view of the Nile from rooms is spectacular. Many staff are very friendly. However, this hotel does not offer 5-star service--some reception staff were indifferent or altogether not helpful. Asked for a man at front desk to call a car/taxi for me and had to wait 30 minutes and was quoted an outrageous price (I was... More

This is a hard review to write. It really could be two different reviews. My wife and I spent 3 days at the Helnan in May, went to Luxor for two days, then back to the Helnan for three more days. What the Helnan has going for it is a great location with wonderful views from nearly all rooms. When... More

We were treated so well at Helnan Hotel. We used this hotel as part of our time on tour in Egypt with encounters Travel. We felt pampered in our room. The view was just incredible and to sit on the balcony at night and feel the breeze of the River Nile is incredible. Wifi is slow and is in the... More

This is a great hotel with large rooms and even better view if you get the villas located just in-front of the Nile River. The hotel also boasted an impressive lobby. It’s a pity that I manage to stay at the hotel for only 1 night as part of a tour and we had to depart early at 3.30am which... More

We were 4 guests and took 2 double rooms and stayed for 1 night on 10th March 2015. They claimed that the property is a 5 star property. Upon checking in and after being allotted our rooms, we were completely disappointed. the rooms were very very basic. The beds were not comfortable at all. The air conditioning in one of... More

The pros - good sized room with great views over the Nile. That's about where the pros stop. The staff (apart from a couple of reception staff), almost everyone from restaurants, concierge, housekeeping to room service speak hardly 2 words of English. There are no mini bars, no kettles not even a room service menu in the room. I had... More
