We arrived by overnight train from Cairo and after a short day of sightseeing, were anxious to get to our room and relax. What we encountered at the Moevenpick Resort was more than we hoped for. You get to the hotel via watercraft service which is available whenever you are ready to travel between the city and the hotel. The hotel staff were very welcoming and attentive, and the rooms and grounds were impeccable. But the real star was our room overlooking the Nile River, directly across from the botanical gardens and with a view of the noble burial tombs dotting the hillside on the other side of the river. The weather was perfect for sitting on the balcony, enjoying the view or reading a book. There are several restaurants at the hotel and the food was outstanding. There are manicured grounds and a large swimming pool with crystal clear water. This is definitely a vacation oasis. And I have only the best reviews for the city of Aswan. A great place to relax during the winter months. I am already planning for my next trip to Egypt and a very lengthy stay in Aswan at the Moevenpick. For those planning to leave at 4 a.m. to get to the train station for an early morning 3-4 hour trip to Luxor, the Moevenpick prepares the best picnic breakfast for you to take with you free of charge. I could not ask for a better place to stay.
