Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spent New Years Eve at this hotel with a tour into the White Desert. Please call Peter for specific driving directions to reach the hotel from Cairo. We drove ourselves with no problems, having U.S. Passports. Five hours from Cairo to the hotel via Sheikh Zayed, and 4 hours on way back via 6th of October. Do not self drive via Mena. Road is in excellent condition, newly paved. Two gas stations on the drive between Cairo and the Oasis. Peter is an outstanding host, well organized, and with good wine in Peter's bar. The hiking behind the hotel is excellent, lots to see in the Black Desert. The one-night safari to white desert was incredible. Reminder that there is a 750LE or so fee per person that has to be paid to a ranger in the White Desert, normally at the famous rock. Dont miss crystal mountain.

The positive points: the hotel is clean, breakfast simple but sufficient. Negative points: the rooms definitely need a face lift, especially the bathrooms, looks like my grandparents bathroom 30 years ago, no tv at all, the one in the reception doesn't work, water flow in the taps very poor

Everything worked excellent with them since the first contact. They picked us in Cairo and when we arrived we went directly to the Black and White desert. Our guide, Tamr, was an amazing driver, guide and cook! In the return we stayed one night in the hotel, which is simple but cozy. They are also specialized in tours to Gilf Kebir (depicted in the English Patient movie), although currently tours are not being allowed there. Could not thank enough Peter and Miharu for the outstanding service.

We booked very last minute and were immediately accommodated with transfers, a desert tour, and overnight accommodations with breakfast included. Peter was unbelievably friendly and was quick to keep us on schedule to fully enjoy our stay. The food we were cooked by our tour guide was the culinary highlight of our trip. Every person we interacted with was a delight, the only bummer was that quite a few hot springs were out of commission due to faulty equipment (and there being only one means of fixing them in the oasis). The unbelievable icing on the cake was when I left my headphones behind in the transfer car, and the team at the hotel worked with the driver to have my headphones returned to me in Cairo. That's service beyond the call of duty! Can't recommend this spot enough.

A wonderful dream hotel, in the middle of an oasis of its own. Lovely, simple rooms which help you to feel on a safari. Peter and Miharu, the owners, take personal care for their clients. Having their own tour agency, they offer safaris to the black and white desert, where you can spend one or more nights. So beautiful!

The location was fantastic especially for a desert trip in the black and white desert. The owner of the hotel Peter and his wife are very friendly and try to make your wishes come true. We really enjoyed our stay! It was very peaceful a nice change from Cairo. The rooms are a bit oldfashioned but the bar is great...

We decided a few days ago to make an inspection trip of this hotel and accordingly my assistant telephoned the owner of the hotel Peter Wirth advising him that my wife & I would be coming on Friday to meet with him and inspect the hotel as we were planning to bring a group there soon. As planned my wife & I drove almost 4 1/2 hours to get there and due to no signs anywhere to help us reach the place we drove in circles until finally a local guy showed us the way. We got there at 12:34pm, parked our car then walked into what seemed like a completely deserted place, reaching a lobby/reception area where no one was there at all, which made us feel totally uncomfortable. I telephoned the hotel and a foreign lady answered, to whom I mentioned we were expected by Peter today, and obviously she was aware of our visit, yet she replies by saying “I just started my lunch now, so I will come see you in 15 minutes??? What a reply? Having been in the travel and hospitality business myself for 47 years, my wife and I decided we cannot possibly send clients to a hotel of that sort where there are no staff to welcome visitors, and certainly where whoever she may be who answered the phone was too busy eating lunch and willingly asking guests to just wait till she’s done? Totally disappointed that we wasted our time driving to/from Bawiti to inspect a hotel which apparently lacks the ABC of hospitality business.

On a general basis, I found the food at this place to be pretty pedestrian, a la cafeteria style. Food is very much part of my own holiday fun, and this place needs some help in that direction. Many people have said the food it amazing here, but I think Chef must have been off the time I was there! My main purpose for booking into this hotel was their reputation for conducting Desert Safaris into the Western Desert; do make a point of taking that option, it's an extraordinary experience. You might want to build in time to actually relax in this amazing setting. Consider adding a day AFTER the safari to wash the sand out and relax; it would have been quite welcome, rather than returning from the safari, and then getting straight into a car for another 3 hours back to Cairo. I recommend this hotel, but make it a point to know what you're getting into before you go, and go in a group

My wife, daughter and I visited the International Hot Spring Hotel now for the fifth time and we loved it. The hospitality extended from the owners, Miharu and Peter, were second to none, any request we had was happily fulfilled. We enjoyed our meals in the hotel and we were absolutely stunned from the lunch and dinner prepared and served during the safari by Tamer, who was also our driver and history teacher for the Western Desert. Thank you for another lifetime experience and we hope to have many more opportunities to visit Bahariya and the Western Desert

My 10 year old son and I went to stay at homey and natural hotel, camp 1- night, and to explore. This place filled the bill! We had full board for 2 nights, and 1 night in the desert, all arranged by the hotel. We enjoyed the food, the people, and sitting in the hot spring to relax after a night of camping and hiking. Thankful for the hospitality. I also loved that they sold heavy-duty, warm camel blankets. Could not have asked for a better 3 days away from the chaos of home.
