Stayed here as couple just for overnight. Huge room with impressive bathroom, and marvelous terrace overlooking the Nile river. We ordered some food, burger and club sandwich were ok. We even managed to take some chill time and swim in the pool. The beds were catastrophycaly hard, but we were so tired to ask the reception to change the mattress.... More

The room was very spacious, huge bathroom, floor to ceiling window with the a view to the Nile. Fantastic sunsets... The food was amazing, the staff was friendly and they had a huge balcony where I had my lovely breakfast. Buffet style breakfast- vegetarian options as well. They have a gym too. I also attended a fitness class, did aerobics... More

I absolutely loved this hotel, especially as I had a pool access room and could open my doors to a private patio and then step out the pool. The views of the Nile from here were spectacular. The hotel staff were super friendly and provided fantastic service. The food is ok, but when in Aswan there are too many awesome... More

Massively luxurious lobby and swim area, very comfortable rooms. Air conditioning is in rooms , not hallways, but understandable in this country. Word of advice : show a little respect for the customs of the country and wear a scarf on your head if you are a woman.Also might consider a coverall sport suit for swimming. I didn't go to... More

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
