We stayed here for five nights at the beginning of October. It was a lovely relaxing place to stay especially after the mayhem of Cairo. The room was a delight and the view of the walls of medinat habu in the morning were wonderful. We hired bikes which made getting about between the tombs and the east bank a breeze. The food was good though a bit of variety in the breakfast and some fruit would have made it excellent. Sadly we were the only people there for the whole stay so please go there! Highly recommended.
