Siva Nefertiti Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Hotels in Al Minya
Reviewed June 8, 2010

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and we love it!

On both occassions we arranged a visit to El Ashmunein and Tuna el Gebel and stayed at this hotel. As El Minia is an area where very few tourists visit (due to the previous problems there) all staff were so pleased to see us.

We were treat fantastically by everyone in the hotel and everybody made an effort to spend time chatting to us without trying to sell us something like in many places in Egypt!

The food was delicious and fresh and very reasonably priced.

We spent quite a lot of our time relaxing by the pool on the day time and also sitting outside relaxing with a few Egyptian Stella's on an evening.

We are now planning our third stay at this hotel!

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a bus tour of middle Egypt. Not a lot of tourists come to this part of Egypt and accommodation options are limited and we were advised this hotel was the best in town. At the time we were there the hotel guests seemed to be solely from 2 different tour groups.
The Siva Nefertiti is an old hotel that has gone by other names in the past, most recently the Nefertiti & Aton. It has seen better days.
It is a big and basic hotel just across the road from the Nile River. In its day it was probably a genuine 3 star but it would be “pushing it” to rate that highly now.
The room was modest, bed was firm, sheets and towels clean and plumbing worked. There was a fridge and TV, but no in-room safe. The supplied hairdryer was U/S. It looks as though all rooms have a balcony. Everything about the hotel showed its age including room fit-out. Lots of “rough edges” to finish and services, but as we learned, “this is Egypt”.
Free WiFi internet – only "1 bar" in our room, but better in the lobby.
Buffet dinner was very good, breakfast limited.
Staff tried hard to be helpful and enough spoke English for us to get by.
Both nights we were there they had a good crowd of locals around the pool in the evening with non-alcoholic drinks watching an Egyptian music TV channel – seemed very popular with the locals.
Good enough for a short stay when choices are limited.
