A fantastic couple of nights stay

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

AH952 Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

Well what to say! Stayed for a couple of nights before a Nile Cruise and friend and I were blown away with the hotel and the team. We were in King Nile Suites in the new part of the building..with fantastic views over the Nile! The room is more than generously proportioned with multiple sitting areas both inside and on the balcony! Staff could not do enough for us…food and drink excellent….an oasis if calm from the busy town of Aswan…5 mins walk from the hotel. The staff were attentive but not intrusive….just loved it…and will definitely be back! The pool was closed for refurbishment and like every single area of this hotel it is going to look fab! We were informed of the closure in advance of the stay and the hotel made alternative arrangements for us to use the Movenpick hotel nearby .

Hadra and Asran were amazing. The drinks were lovely. Beautiful view and superb service. We spent a great evening here at sunset. Couldnt wish for a better place. We got a table next to the Nile and the guys were brilliant with service.

We loved everything about this hotel: - the hotel has an incredible sense of history, and the refurbishment has enhanced that. - the setting is so relaxing. The pool was closed during out stay, and I can only imagine that the outside pool enhances the whole atmosphere further. - staff are great. Interestingly, service ahead of arrival was slow and erratic (in terms of replying to emails). The service on site is top notch. Not sure why there is this difference. - the fitness aspects of the hotel (gym, spa etc) are of high quality well integrated into the modern building. We dined in 1902 which is stunning, but left me conflicted. On the one hand, they maintain standards by asking that men wear jackets and leather shoes (they will loan). However, this means that the stunning dining room is empty when it could be enjoyed by many more people. Personally I won't pack specific clothes just to dine in a restaurant. I respect their choice, but 1902 needs some buzz as well as formality - it's a huge room. Thank you to the team for a wonderful stay.
