Reviewed January 3, 2013

Why avoid it?
- hotel is not conveniently located, a long walk to the centre of the town of Aswan
- hotel is not well maintained, both the rooms (broken locks) and common areas (torn carpet around pool, used mattress in hallway)
- hotel is not clean, the room smelled bad and there was grime on the cabinets
- room is not well designed, hard to sit on toilet because of location of sink

Stay was arranged via a tour company for day use so I don't know the 'value' or 'sleep quality' - I was happy to leave as soon as possible.

We stayed here on the new years eve. When we checked in the hotel was buy and had breakfast which was pretty reasonable but next day there was hardly any sole one the site. The breakfast was a minimum. Being a vegetarian there was hardly anything to select from. Apart from bread and salad(basic) there was absolute nothing. Prior to us a group of 4 were having breakfast. They had meat but for us it was a disaster. The hotel has mosquitoes. The internet was not working. The rooms were mere average just good enough to sleep but decor was non existents. English is not spoken well and difficult to communicate any of the waiters. Eventually they made us chips for breakfast. Whilst hotel externally looks great the problem is that it's so basic and probably lower than a motel standard when compared to Australian standards. We had a great time in Aswan. There was a huge number of people near the river for the new years eve and the city itself is enjoyable.

We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled up in our bus outside this hotel. Perched on a hilltop with views over the Nile to the west bank, Sunset Hotel lives up to its name each evening, with a rooftop area to enjoy the show. We were welcomed with a drink which might have been reconstituted orange juice but quenched our dry throats while our guide organised our keys.

We were on a tour so this wasn’t our hotel choice but it was lovely. Our two rooms (for a family of four) were lovely and looked out onto a well maintained pool which, unfortunately, is not heated in winter. There was also a tiny balcony to sit out on.

We only had breakfast here which was your standard Egyptian hotel type breakfast of breads, jam, honey, meat, tomato, cheese, fruit, pastries and tea and coffee. Nothing fancy but filled the spot.

We would stay here again. Aswan is beautiful and I'm sure the lovely pool would be very welcome in summer months.
