The first thing to say is that Egypt is open for business - it was deeply worrying to see so few fellow tourists enjoying the wonderful hospitality that Aswan, and the Moevenpick Hotel in particular, has to offer. My wife and I found that the staff at the Moevenpick could not do enough to make our stay a happy, relaxing experience and we really appreciated it. The breakfast is legendary in the variety offered to all nationalities with eggs cooked freshly each time. The pool area is extremely well managed and plenty of shade is available courtesy of a combination of palm trees and umbrellas: we also appreciated the activities of the masseur more than once. Our room was serviced very efficiently twice a day and the management were very much in evidence and wishing to engage with guests: we were particularly moved by being invited to the hotel's Open Day for local orphaned children (pictured), an event with which many of the staff and management were actively involved. The hotel's major 'plus point' is being on Elephantine Island itself and only being able to reach it by the hotel's efficient and frequent 24-hour ferry service. Whilst it is great to engage with Aswan, it's terrific souk and wonderful people, it is also good to have a little detachment and peace and quiet on the Island too. I notice some comments refer to the noise of the extension to the Moevenpick being built nearby on the Northern end of the island but I have to say it didn't affect our enjoyment at all and actually shows how Moevenpick believe in Aswan. So the message is get to Aswan (and Luxor) - it's business as normal and our Egyptian friends need us to spend our money with them! Also, stay as long as you can as this is a great city to get to know and the Moevenpick is the place to stay.
