Essam E. D. Couples - 08/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

It is rare to have such a unique experience on so many fronts whether the property, the food, the location, the atmosphere and more importantly the staff/people!

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Akef Families - 07/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is magnificent. Service was amazing. However good quality was not great. For such a great hotel the quality and variety of food should have been much nicer.

Outstanding butler services and reception

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Lukasz Solo - 07/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel hard product is wonderful and the terrace of 1120 is breath-taking. However, my biggest pleasure was to treat with two people: Mr. Michael (butler) and Mrs. Mariam (reception). They both made this stay unforgettable and went far beyond correcr treatment, especially Mr. Michael that was incredibly proacrive! If I need to be picky, I would work a bit on the breakfast experience - it looks a bit messy and it would be useful to have some person welcoming the guests and bringing them to the table - also there were spoons instead of forks in some products that are difficult to be caught with the spoon (ham, cheese, etc.). These are though small details that are compensated by the other points mentioned before. The experience in 1902 and kebabgy very good both for service and food.

Great hospitality

This is my first time staying at this hotel. I travel a lot and stay at different hotels, but I was never impressed by a hotel, service, and staff as this one. EVERYTHING is amazing. You are treated like a king/queen. It is worth every penny spent. The hotel is on the Nile river with a wonderful view. We had 3 rooms, 2 in the palace and 1 in the Nile view building. all are great with amazing views. Very clean. Staff is courteous and willing to go the extra mile to make your stay great. Food at the hotel is wonderful. There is every night while dining a live Egyptian music. The breakfast variety and taste is great. I will definitely stay there, or in other words,Ii will ONLY stay there whenever I am visiting Aswan.

Sofia N 15/12/2021 TripAdvisor review

The hotel as a unique location and still remains faithful to the old times, with good refurbishment. The Nile building offers a superb view and superb areas for a room, but it is not close to what the old building has to offer, the charm, authenticity and old times experience, the fantastic character rooms. Highly recommend the stay. The service is overall good and the food is also on a good standard overall.
