We had a very nice stay in Aswan! The hosts are super friendly, helpful and welcoming! The hotel has a nice terrace with the most beautiful view. We enjoyed sunset with a beer and a glass of wine. Our room was very clean and there was everything we needed. I recommend this accomodation to everyone.
Nothing! :-)

My favorite place in all of Egypt!”

This is a really special place where you can unwind and relax. Marta and Osama offer true hospitality and take great care of you. They are lovely people and wonderful to chat with when you are relaxing after a long day of sightseeing. The location is on the west side of the island, away from development, with a quiet and lush view of the Nile. The rooftop is scenic, and they have great food and sweets. The room itself is very cozy and comfortable. Traveling in Egypt can be hectic sometimes, so it's nice to have a quiet and relaxing place to start and end your day. Everything here was exceptional and I wish I could have stayed longer. I will be back for sure.

Peaceful, quiet spot by the banks of the Nile”

A lovely, small guesthouse (just 3 rooms) on Elephantine Island with an outlook featuring the Nile, the Botanical gardens, ancient tombs and the desert. The room I stayed in was very comfortable, wifi was good, and plenty of hot water. The hosts, Marta and Osama, do everything to ensure that guests' needs are met. The food is good and an excellent Egyptian breakfast is included. Evening meals are an option and feature ingredients from their garden. Felucca cruises are available and it's possible to get a motor boat to take you to the west bank of the Nile. There are restaurants nearby and the public ferry to Aswan town centre is a 600m walk. It's a very quiet, relaxing place to stay. There is no traffic noise and the guesthouse is smoke free, a big bonus in Egypt.

Idyllic Nubian experience with spectacular Nile view”

A highlight of our Egyptian holiday, this little slice of paradise offered perfect hospitality and a magical view of green and gold. Just stepping off the short ferry ride to Elephantine Island (after sleeper train from Cairo) is a calming experience - away from traffic and hubbub into sandy pathways and friendly smiles. The apartment was so spacious, cool and comfortable for our family of three, and could never tire of the view from terrace and rooftop above. Straight across to Kitcheners island, lush palms and greenery backed by high golden dunes - heavenly all day and irresistible at sunset as feluccas drift by. Husband plunged immediately into Nile for a cool-off, daughter enraptured by cats and kitten, rabbits, geese and puppy, then Marta served up tastiest pizza melanzane this side of Naples. Enjoyed our peaceful sunset felucca ride and also loved strolling the little alleys, absorbing Nubian way of life. This is an ideal base for tours to wonderful Philae etc. Osama and Marta were also super helpful in arranging our next leg, driving to Luxor with stops at Kom Ombo, Edfu and Esna.
Two nights was not enough :( Wish we’d had another few days to soak up that idyllic Nile view, relax over Egyptian breakfast (with Italian coffee), eat out at ‘Bob Marley’s’ and explore the island more. Osama and Marta are the most relaxed and charming couple, interesting to chat to, so friendly with kids and creating a Nubian ‘good life’ in a spectacular setting. Highly recommend the experience and would love to return for a longer stay.
