The Hotel just went through a name change back in October 2019 as per management. We stayed in one of the three rooms near the pool area, which made it very convenient to access the terrace, pool, and appreciate the overview of the Nile. The facilities are very nice and well kept. The room was very spacious with a couple of things to be improved, The shower drain required unclogged since it almost over flooded and the AC was inoperative, thankfully temps in March respect at night and it wasn't required, and also noise was a problem at night since people are allowed in the pool area till the late hours. The staff was very hospitable and helped us plan a trip to Luxor with stop in a few temples.
The property is great. We wished we could have stayed longer then just one night to enjoy it completely. However it has great facilities - like tennis courts , 2 pools etc. Only downside , the Gym is not open 24*7.
Just checking out of this nice boutique hotel in Aswan along the river Nile on the corniche opposite to Movenpick resort (which is across the Nile on west bank).
Nice rooms, welcoming staff, great Egyptian and Italian food. Nice Riverside restaurant and shisha cafe. Has a pool though not hot water.
Great place to stay for solo as well as family travellers.
We stayed here for 3 nights following a train journey from Luxor. The hotel is only accessible by small motor boat. This is a 24 hour service. Our taxi dropped us off at the boat dock and we climbed aboard. Our luggage was put at the front of the boat. A short 10-15 minute journey and we arrive at the hotel. We had previously stayed in hotels in Giza and Luxor before arriving in Aswan and enjoyed the cool air conditioning in those hotels. The air conditioning didn't appear to work in this hotel in reception or the cafe area or corridors (it was fine in the bedroom itself but was always hot moving from the room to the main corridor). The lady on reception asked if we wanted a double or twin bed. We said double but were given a twin. Nice review of the Nile from the room.
Buffet served in the main restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We chose to eat lunch in the cafe from the a la carte menu. Very friendly staff but the service was SO slow. Frustrating when you're hungry / thirsty and have to wait 20-30 minutes for a drink and even longer for food. They often also did not have what you wanted from the menu. We were overcharged in the main restaurant following a meal one day but this was soon rectified. I believe it was a genuine mistake.
We were picked up from the train station by a taxi arranged through the hotel. There are a couple of people who sit in reception and you can arrange tours / transport through them. If you arrange your own tours, always be sure to confirm whether the tour guide is picking you up from the hotel itself (i.e. they will do the boat crossing to the hotel) or whether they will meet you at the boat dock (and wait for you to arrive by boat).
We arranged a trip to Abu Simbel privately. It seems the hotel offers "breakfast in a bag" for you to take on the trip as most tours depart around 3/4am. We didn't know this was an option so didn't arrange it via reception. I'm not sure of the additional cost.
My partner and I decided to walk around and look at the facilities on offer. The hotel boasts 2 pools but seemingly only one was open when we were there. The rest of the facilities seem pretty run down and dated e.g. a football pitch with ripped nets, an abandoned miniature golf course etc. There are shops in reception which annoyingly is the most direct route to the pool. Be prepared for hassle and attempts to get you in...
The hotel had a really nice outdoor pool and the staff were friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel has a nice view of the Nile river. However, the wifi was only available in the lobby and pool area. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
