“Excellent Location & Nice facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

We stayed in hotel Iberotel just for one night during our 2 weeks vacation in Egypt but thought it to be the best hotel we had during the trip. The hotel as excellent location; right on Nile river with superb unblocked views of Nile from every room. Rooms are nicely furnished and comfortable.

The hotel also has a nice restaurant (and also swimming pool and chalets) across the road from the main hotel (connected by a private underpass) right on the bank of Nile river and we had an excellent dinner there sitting close to the river. I really appreciated the excellent service provided by Mr Nabil from the restaurant's team in taking us to the river side restaurant and offering some excellent vegetarian food suggestions for us to make our stay comfortable and memorable after a long day spent flying from Cairo in the morning and full day Abu Simbel tour.

The breakfast was nice with a good mix of Egyptian and continental food.

We liked our short stay there.

We stayed at this hotel for one night while waiting for our Nile Cruise. The staff was very accommodating and allowed us to check in at 8 am (they are not busy with tourism down these days). Breakfast here is very extensive and very nice. Many different options. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Not luxury by any means, but not ragged at all. View over the river was great! There is wire Internet in the rooms, we use a hot spot for these situations and it works fine.

It is a little far from the city center, so we ended up not walking through the souk or other areas of Aswan. It was however, right across the street from our ship, which made the transition easy. Overall, a nice hotel, price was fair and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are river view. There are also suites or separate cottages across the street b...

My wife and I stayed here as part of a Travel Talk tour. The hotel was clean and tidy the recption area of the hotel was huge and they had free wifi in the lobby area. The staff are friendly and we were greeted with a welcome drink on arrival.

The room was large and the bed was comfortable. A nice flat screen tv and a clean shower and bathroom with great hot water pressure. We had a great view of the Nile from our room and it was a 5 minute walk to the downtown area.

We had a Breakfast pack provided for our trip to Abu Simbel and it was nice and filling. Over all it was a great hotel very warm comfortable and welcoming.

We only stayed a night in this hotel as we were in Aswan for just one night before departing on our Nile Cruise. We found it cosy, comfortable and convenient for our purpose. We appreciated the free wifi offered by the hotel.

The absolute plus point is the fantastic view of the Nile from our room window and balcony. We could stay at the balcony whole day long and still be dazzled by the view.

We had dinner at the hotel restaurant. Although there isn't a wide variety of choices, it was adequate. We chose not to eat out as we had to leave early the next morning (3am) for our trip to Abu Simbel.

Nice hotel on the fringe of the city not far from the centre and Taxis if needed were readily available Staff very helpful. My wife has walking difficulties and a wheelchair was provided, I didn't even have to push it. Nice pool with excelent views of the Nile while sun bathing. The room was comfortable and quiet with a huge bed. Roof service was quick and efficient. In all we had a great week end. Would definately use the hotel again.

• Apparently 5 star hotel, however lacks the lustre of a hotel of this calibre. More likely should be categorised as a 4 star.
• Rooms: Clean, beds comfy, no carpet so the rooms felt a little cold. Bathroom and showers were great.
• Location: On the fringe of Aswan town centre – 10 min walk from restaurants and other facilities. Quiet area with spectacular view of the Nile River.
• Breakfast: mediocre – pastries were not fresh. Variety was basic and not many options
• Room Service was punctual however food was inadequate.
• Service: Desk staff were very helpful and any other inquiries or issues that we had were promptly dealt with in a friendly and efficient manner.
• Internet: free to all
• Bowling and cinema – greatly disappointed when told the cinema and bowling complex was indefinitely closed.

A new hotel with spacious public areas, good airy main rooms, and a pool on the banks of the Nile which we had to almost ourselves. Unmatchable. The manager, his deputy and the. reception staff are excellent, and keen to put right the wrongs: we were grateful to them. But others know too little English in a hotel catering for tourists.
The restaurant lacks imagination. Breakfast is frugal (how many boiled eggs can you eat in one stay?) and although the dinner menu is easy to read under the harsh floodlights, it is limited to two choices. There is a wonderful first floor terrace overlooking the river and city, and with sensible lighting, furniture, and a creative chef the hotel could clean up. But then nobody goes to Egypt for the food.
Certainly it beats the Cataract for space and price, and it avoids the ferry hassle of the Movenpick, For a two night stay its a good base- ten minute walk to the centre., and to underline, the pool area is so peaceful. But it could be so, so much better.

Room Tip: The pool chalets have a wonderful setting, as close to the Nile as you can get, but suffer from the...
