My friend and I, really enjoyed our stay there. The lay out of the place is spacious with outside areas you can lounge around and take in the nile river and desert simultaneously. The room is cozy, bed is comfy, and you can enjoy a well pressured shower.
The hotel staff are very friendly, you tell them the time you would like to eat and the food will be ready at that time. You can sit anywhere you wish top, middle, or lower deck. The food is amazing, Egyptian/African style food. Great lentil soup, rice cooked in spices, potatoes baked with red onion, Kofta, seasoned grilled fish (favorite), grilled chicken (dry), nice bread, cheeses, and it goes on and on. Each sitting offered more than enough food.
Anakato, is a little drive into town but no worries you can arrange to have a driver. 30 pounds one way and 50 pounds both ways.
If you are looking for a romantic spot or just a place to relax this is definitely a place to stay. You can really enjoy the Egyptian night here.
