Everything was perfect! It is located in the Nubian village in a quiet area. Good to rest after a day to explore Aswan or Abu Simbel. Owner and whole team is so kind and warm. You straightaway feel at home. The view on the rooftop is great. You have the Nile on one side and the mountains on the other....

This has by far been the best part of our trip to Egypt. Staying outside bustling Aswan with easy access has been perfect. Eating breakfast on the roof with a view of the Nile and local ruins would have been amazing on its own; however, Abdullah the owner was an amazing host who went above all we could have asked....

Cannot say enough about the hospitality of this place. Very welcoming and constantly ensuring you are comfortable. Delicious breakfast, and complimentary drinks and fruit available 24x7. Great, peaceful location on the Nubia side, and at the same time only 10-15 minutes to center of town via walk + ferry ride. Also a good place to meet other travellers. They can...

The best thing about Bet el Kerem is the hospitality and the open terrace.You could spend hours enjoying the serenity of the Nubian village and the view of the Nile flowing by the side. It is not a 5-star hotel but a great bed and breakfast joint. It is situated on the West bank of Nile away from all the...

My partner and I just spent two nights at this Guesthouse. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome. The guesthouse is on the West Bank, just under the Tomb of the Nobles, and within a Nubian village. If you get the local ferry, then head up the pathway and Bet El Kerem is the...

Bet El Kerem is located on the west bank of the nile, across from the city of Aswan. It is easy walking distance from the train station, however you must take a short ferry ride. You will probably spend most of your time on the roof top patio chatting with Abdule or the other staff. The view is spectacular in...

The place is really chilling and well maintained. Everything works (hot shower, AC and etc). As for WiFi, you may need to ask Abdullah the owner of the place. They have a very good friendly hospitable operation team and you will feel like home. The price is quite high for a guesthouse and for dinner too. But dinner is AMAZING....
