Amazing hotel with magnificent Nile views May 17, 2012
One of the most incredible hotels I have ever stayed in. Legendary setting and the facilities are simply magnificent. The Nile Wing rooms overlook the Nile and Elephantine Island... and breakfast/afternoon tea on the Terrace overlooking the Nile is an experience of a lifetime. I would gladly go there again... just ask me! :o)

The pool is fabulous and nothing beats the Aswan heat like soaking in the pool/jacuzzi (watch out for the sun though)... the hotel has everything you need. You can take the basic motorboats to the nearby attractions and islands to sample the lifestyle and hospitality of the Nubians. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Didnt stay there but went in for a look.Beware that they charge you 85 Egypt pounds per person to enter if you are not a resident.This a credit for you to use in the Bar or Restaurant.
