Not clean, noisy, and no escape! My mistake for not reading more reviews, and for thinking the location was in center city. It's not. Wi-fi in lobby only, despite their claim. There is an overlook to the Nile, but stay out of the dining room, or at least don't touch anything. Even the menus were filthy.

We stayed here for 2 nights and the first night we had a room overlooking the pool. Unfortunately, the pool has a club that plays loud music until 2am, so we moved rooms the next night to the other side of the building, which was much quieter. Certainly ask for a room away from the pool if you mind noise... More

A friend and I stayed in march as part of a tour group. We are girls in our early 20s and felt male staff to be extremely inappropriate watching us while we were around the pool and taking pictures of us, then later finding their way to our room and asking if we needed anything. The hotel itself is very... More

Where do one start - bad reception, terrible rooms (they tried me in 3) - decor horrific old and torn, filthy bathrooms, unhelpful staff, waiter serving coffee in dirty cup and saucer and justifies it as the cups are old, no sweetener (diet sugar) no coke light or any other cold beverage for diabetics - a manager that tells me...

Basic, bathroom door did not shut, tap dripped continually, door to room was a joke, however, the view was breath taking, clean, and basic, we actually found the problems hilarious (what ever next). You get what you pay for just make sure it's not $95 per night as stated on the door tariff. Did not eat there, and it's a... More

the food was rubbish and the service was terrible. Mosquitos allover the place. The location is ugly apart from the nile view and the pool. The restaurant stuff were bad and rude. the air conditioning wasn't working and they didn't fix it. Don't you ever go there or you will regret it and if you go there just eat outside... More

Don't stay here unless you like loud music until 2am and mosquitoes in your room!!! We stayed at this hotel on the night of December 28th, 2012. Our guide told us that it was a quiet hotel. We went to bed early because we had to get up early for a tour to Abu Simbel. We fought off mosquitoes for... More

The hotel is situated in the middle of a building site. The staff were surly and generally unhelpful when it can to finding change so that I could tip them!. The food was pretty poor and I think the handful of us on an expat explore trip were the only guests. Can't complain too much I suppose as the expat... More

The following points provide a summary of our stay in this hotel. Nice lobby. Our room had a view overlooking the Nile river – unique vista. In our bathroom we could easily hear the occupants in the room next door. Air conditioning extremely noisy and not very effective. Very basic amenities. Bed extremely hard. TV – tube type but too...

Was dropped off at Sara Hotel by BusAbout. I checked in and was taken to my room only to find out that the toilet and shower wasn't working and neither was the air con. It was a ridiculous temperature and the air con was truly necessary. I went down to reception to tell them I had no water or air... More
