“This hotel is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I stayed 3 days in this small countryside hotel and it was great.Ulrike and Mohamed gave me a very especial treatment and I felt there better than home.
They showed me all the places around the funduk,coming with me to most of them.
The situation is very good just 10Km from Edfu in the edge of a village and between fields of sugar cane.
The food was very good too and every time I came back after visiting any place I had a cocktail or a juice prepared by Mohamed.
The rooms are also very comfortable as the whole hotel and garden,tasteful decorated by Ulrike.
Finally,when I come back to Egypt I'll stay there again.

Hotel Funduk al Shams run by Ulrike Grimm and Mohamed Saad, is very special. A small hotel between the sugarcane fields on approximately 2 km walk from the Nile. Ulrike and Mohamed are very good hostst for their guests. They show the surroundings, the fields and the village. The hotel is not far from the best preserved temple of Egypt in Edfu, definitely worth a visit. Also a Feluka-trip on the Nile is liked by them organized.
