Having stayed at most hotels on each side of the Nile over a 20 year period, I had always overlooked the Nile Valley Hotel, much to my regret now!
What a fantastic place, very clean, great rooms and a superb rooftop restaurant for breakfast and meals overlooking the Nile.
Has a nice swimming pool area, secluded and great sunbathing area, my only negative would be the very cold water temperature, but nevertheless great for cooling down.
I did try eating at other places but could not find anything better than the rooftop for quality, price and of course the view.
I had a view of the street/ferry and was fantastic for watching normal Egyptian life go by each day, including the odd camels passing each morning.
Other rooms face the pool area and looked very nice and have the sun all day.
Only a minute walk to the local ferry where you can easily cross to the east bank for 10p, another nice way to see Egyptian life and the ferry runs constantly day and night.
One great thing about the hotel is that they have a system of a communal tip at the end of your stay, so no need to tip individual services, just wait until the end of your holiday, makes things easier that way.
I would have no hesitation about staying here again and have already recommended to friends and family.
Should anyone want details of private tours etc, just PM me.
Can't wait to go back.
Thank you Nile Valley.
