I stayed here for a week in November 2012 with a group and enjoyed a very unique experience.
After visiting some of the nearby temples and sacred sites I felt totally enlightened with the most profound ancient knowledge available about Egypt.
The roof top terrace was a special place to relax and do some meditation as well as being an ideal space for lying down, gazing up at the clear night sky with all planets and the stars.
The grounds were spacious and safe to walk around at night and the weather was a lot warmer than I though it would be for the time of year, lovely sunny days with no rain.
Breakfast was always available early if needed and we could get lunch boxes made up for our trips. The west bank is away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds of tourist which is found on the east bank providing a much more peaceful place to walk around outside the hotel. The rooms were always nice and clean, very warm with fresh towels left creatively folded in a quirky design which gave made me smile on entering my room. There was
Wi-Fi available in the lounge and reception areas.
I have just booked to go back again in March and nothing is to much trouble, all my requests are yet again being met. The hotel is a good place for groups to stay and a great price for all it has to offer.
