A fantastic stay indeed.
My expectations weren’t that high, I didn’t expect much! And soooooooooo delighted during my stay from everything.
Arrived the area by 7 am. Since the hotel is located on an island within the nile, they have a free of charge 24 hours ferry service, moving you from and to the hotel.
Went off the ferry, and I was like wow … what a beautiful scenery. I took the steps to the hotel lobby, breathing this magnificent air, surrounded by those beautiful plants.
Wasn’t that big … but was rather cute and classy.
Checking in :
Was ok, I had to explain that I’m a resident, though my passport has a residency STAMPED for one year, yet the receptionist , who knew very little apparently, assumed that everyone gets in the country gets such stamps!!!
I first had a room overlooking the main land, which was a fine view, yet wasn’t what I had mind, thus called back the reception and asked nicely to be transferred to another room overlooking the “ Kitchener’s island “, the botanical plants island. The receptionist ( the same one with the residency issue ) was very helpful and immediately transferred me to another room.
Pictures attached showing the room. It was spacious, very clean, the bathroom was great, the bed was comfortable.
Separate area – in front of the bathroom – for the wardrobe, which was big enough.
It had a big balcony … views from the balcony attached. During the day you get to see this amazing nature. So beautiful and peaceful.
At night, the kitchener’s island has colourful lights as the picture shows, seriously amazing.
The only problem I had with the room was the air conditioning, which I was told later on that the management is working on fixing it.
The best thing was that EVERYDAY I get in the room to see a new artistic recreation done by the housekeepers ... they were really cool.
Only visited during breakfast, which was amazing. A great selection that would suit everyone’s taste. The staff was very helpful, especially Mr. Ali who was the MASTER of “ oriental beans “, though he was a waiter yet he prepared me a bowl of oriental beans “ fool “ with his great touches of spices that were perfect. Also special thanks to the chefs, juniors and seniors, especially those responsible for the eggs.
Was great, very affordable prices, fast service.
Special thanks to Mr. Mahmoud from room service. He answers the calls, and whenever I call I ask for his opinion on what to choose, his choices from the menu were PERFECT. I tried the Club sandwich, the burgers, and the tomato soup. He was very polite and helpful.
Views of the hotel :
Spectacular from every angle. The best could be seen from the restaurant/café on the 13th floor in the main building, that has a panoramic view of Aswan as a whole.
Was amazingly clean and huge …
In a summary :
I've had a very pleasant stay, and was really impressed by the standards of the hotel, didn't expect it to be that good.
Special thanks to Mr. Ali from, the waiter at the main restaurant, who's been exceptionally helpful and friendly.
Regarding my room cleanliness, many thanks to Ms. Fatima and Mr. Abd-Allah who ensured I got a clean room with an elegant artistic touch with their floral recreations daily ...
Finally, Mr. Rabee, the chauffer who was exceptionally honest and very friendly.
I’d go back in a second if I could … wish to visit again and again :)
