“Great place to chill out with beautiful views and lovely pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

A little boat takes you across the Nile to this hotel on Elephantine Island.
Had a balcony with one of the loveliest views of the Nile. Dated but clean and comfy rooms with numerous English channels on the TV.
Almost empty when we there but found staff very friendly.
Had an issue at breakfast and it was fixed immediately so I did not "carry away a bad impression". Was very impressed with this attitude.
Pool a real delight and nice to hear birds singing rather than cars blowing their horns.

Maybe the nicest hotel in Aswan and with internet special pricing, it was actually affordable. However, everyone assumes you have money to burn if you stay here and will treat you accordingly. For example, the only tours booked through this hotel are with Thomas Cook; they are all private tours; and very expensive. The feluccas on either side of the private ferry are similarly overpriced.

Ok, so ,yes, it's gorgeous, the pool is spectacular, and the beds are the best in Egypt, but everything else we did in Aswan we booked through another hotel that we just happened upon: Philae Hotel Aswan. They were much friendlier and genuine and didn't make us feel like impostors of the rich and famous.

Stayed for 3 nights, simply this resort must be awarded for its excellence and uniqueness. Particularly the exquisite location. All Staff were very professional and friendly(special thanks and appreciation to front desk/reception staff who were welcoming and helpful). Rooms and their amenities are outstanding yet rennovation shall add a lot, breakfast was very good, room service staff response was highly professional and friendly. Pool and landscape are awesome. Last but not least the view from the tower restaurant is outstanding. This hotel is one of the best with very attractive rates, highly recommended for any kind of tourism/stay. Ultimately i invite all tourists to visit Aswan one of the most beautiful charming cities ever; safe and friendly with best views for a river ever.

Great location and easy access with boats running when needed. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are beautiful with most having Nile views. The Breakfast buffet is outstanding with everything you can think of. Stayed 2 nights with departure and returned for one night in April 2013. Wonderful swimming pool!
Stayed here in 2005. Very few guest so have closed down the main tower and only the Wing is open for guest

Room Tip: I recommend the second or third floor in the Wing. If you like lights and cruise ships stay on the...

Nicely located on elephantine island, taking the launch across and back adds to the charm of being on the Nile. Very good room, service, food et al. Just wish they offered free wifi and even if not free, they need to make it available in the rooms too. For the rest, i would reccommend it to all who are going to that part of the world.

We had a great time in the Movenpick during December, celebrating a significant birthday of my wife. The weather was lovely, a welcome relief from our Scottish winter, the sight seeing, particularly Kalabsha and the Nile Felucca trips locally, and Abu Simbel by organised convoy!
The Hotel was excellent, it's Island setting making for a more restful ambience than often found in main town settings in Egypt, the buffet food (we went half board) excellent, varied, and delicious. The room was well furnished, scrupulously clean, attractive and with a lovely view of the gardens and Nile. All in all, a wonderful holiday.

I stayed 3 nights in Movenpick hotel in Aswan. The hotel in nicely located in Elephantine island; very close to downtown. I enjoyed shuttle boats carrying guests from Aswan city to the island [working around the clock]. The hotel has very nice and spacious rooms,all overlooking the Nile from different angles, I recommend either superior or delux rooms where you have direct view of the Nile. The room furniture is very good ;however,it is equipped with old- fashion TV sets!! I expected LCD or LED sets. Both breakfast food quality and assortment are nice. However, the dinner at tower restaurant is quite expensive, but you can still enjoy the spectacular view while having a cup of tea or beer.The infinity pool has a terrific view of the Nile.The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I consider Movenpick hotel to be one of best 3 hotels in Aswan, yet the room charge is very competitive.I enjoyed my lodging experience there and I will definetly return back.
