The hotel has an interesting history. Common parts are spacious. Food was good and possibly aimed at Egyptians who were most of the guests - portions were very large and I have noticed that Egyptians have no qualms leaving food on their plates. Some of the modern parts of the hotel are poor quality, the pool was freezing and sound... More

Originally a hunt mansion of King Faruq of Egypt built in 1937, the place is now a struggling 5 stars (?) decadent hotel. The original parts of the palace are the main value.

We were taken aback by the crashing of the waves against the hotel sea-wall NOT the sort of noise I associate with inner Egypt, but this hotel is in an Oasis based on the 40km long Lake Qarun. The rooms and large balcony were outstanding. The swimming pool was fun and cooling which we needed after a day in the... More

I stayed for 5 days in Helnan Auberge hotel in Fayoum. I can say it is the best available decent hotel that you can stay in Fayoum.The hotel is located at Qaroun lake area around 35 km away from Fayoum City. The hotel scenery over the lake is great and it used to be the elite lodging and recreation place... More

I stayed in Halnan Augerge Fayoum for a weekend trip with my 2 year old daughter and some friends. The hotel is set on a historic building of King Farouk's hunting lodge and is probably the only high-end hotel available in this little town Fayoum. It was fully of Egyptian families enjoying a weekend. I am sure that it opened... More

The road in general is safe and well paved but The last 15 km are... More

Stayed again in March, loved the quiet hotel with it's views of Lake Qarun. Service excellent and all staff tried to help as much as possible although there were some language difficulties. Rooms large and well maintained, dining good especially the Egyptian dishes, and meals were very cheap for a 4 star hotel. Area around Fayoum is so special without... More

The best hotel there in comparison with the near ones. It's overlooking Karoon Lake which is a historical place. Very good place & great value for money. you can have day use & stay in the hotel for a couple of days.
