I spent 5 nights here during my solo bicycle tour from Cairo to Aswan. Things I liked ============================== Excellent service, the best I have had in Egypt or anywhere else in a long while. Acceptable English, especially with Eman, the charming, smart and helpful lady at the front desk. She had a Masters degree in English Literature, and spoke fluent... More

The Hotle is very quit and very near to the train station ( railway station ) and Nile view rooms has fantastic view and price is suitable . If you can't get a Nile view room no problem you still can enjoy the same view from the roof and seats is available .

We visited several hotels as we had a small budget. This was a very good compromise. The personnel were very helpful and the hotel was clean. Only downside was that there was no real coffee. But that was the case in all the hotels we stayed in all down the Nile and on the Red Sea. This is probably because... More

Nicely located close to ferry station from where you can go to the West Bank. We booked 3 rooms for a party of 8 people, and two of the rooms (we stayed on the 5th floor) were really big for the price. You can also have a nice view of the Nile and West Bank from some of the rooms... More

The hotel is very centrally located, just a short walk from the railway station with breathtaking views of the Nile from the rooftop. I personally spent a lot of time up there and enjoyed the rest and tranquility. I arrived here tired and weary but felt that I was received like family. The staff took a genuine interest in my...

First, the hotel is just around the corner from railway station, google map showed it some 3 Kms away, so we hired a cab to cover the distance of 150-200 mts :) The rooms are old fashioned and need a serious make over. We booked a return trip to Abu simble with hotel and was pleasantly suprized that hotel provided... More

Checked in 1 day early. Was told by the front desk this was OK as the hotel was not fully booked. Two weeks later the hotel dishonestly extracted an additional 2 room nights "cancellation fee" from the booking service because we checked in a day early. There is no excuse for this type of behaviour. Avoid this place.

We stayed in this hotel in Nov 2014 for one night. The pictures we saw on Expedia have nothing to do with this place. We got a dark, dirty room with an old filthy bathroom and dirty sheets. There was no toilet paper, and the staff were extremely unfriendly. Stay away, not worth the price.
