Bet El Kerem guesthouse is gorgeous -- a Nubian-style mansion with the most beautiful rooftop patio we saw in all of Egypt. The views are spectacular. The rooms are simple, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast and dinner are so generous and delicious. The hotel is a very short walk from a ferry that will take you across the Nile to central...

Bet el Kerem is only a ten minute ferry ride away from "downtown" Aswan, but when you get off the boat and walk the 100 or so meters to the guesthouse, you feel like you've arrived in a small village. We stayed here for two nights. Our room was clean, large and lovely. We shared a spotless bathroom just a...

The guesthouse is located near the Nile river and overlooking the Tombs of Noble. It also has a spectacular view of Aswan city on the other side of the river. The terrace is very cozy and has amazing views.The breakfast and dinner were very yummy! I wouldn't think of eating elsewhere. Abdel is such a very warm and gracious host!...

The guesthouse is in a quiet place about five minutes from the ferry across the river; so it is easy to get to and it is easy to get to and from Aswan. It is also about twenty minutes from the airport. It is a five-minute walk to the tombs, and you can easily get a camel to take you...

Bet el Kerem GH is situated on the west bank of Nile, far away from the hustles & bustles of East bank. This place is perfect for relaxation & cherishing Nubian lifestyle. The owner is a very helpful man, with amazing sense of hospitality. Food was excellent. We enjoyed the camel ride which took us on the Aga Khan mausoleum,...

Everything was perfect! It is located in the Nubian village in a quiet area. Good to rest after a day to explore Aswan or Abu Simbel. Owner and whole team is so kind and warm. You straightaway feel at home. The view on the rooftop is great. You have the Nile on one side and the mountains on the other....

This has by far been the best part of our trip to Egypt. Staying outside bustling Aswan with easy access has been perfect. Eating breakfast on the roof with a view of the Nile and local ruins would have been amazing on its own; however, Abdullah the owner was an amazing host who went above all we could have asked....
