We stayed at Movenpick during the first week of January in a superior room (302). The room has 2 balconies one overlooking the east bank of the nile and the other with a side view of the same bank. The room was very clean, the staff are hospitable and you can't beat the view. The location is just superb!
With a 5 minute free ferry you can get to the corniche and from there it is a 5 minute walk to the Souk and El Masry restaurant. El Dokka restaurant is about 15 minutes walk. From the corniche you can take a felucca or motorboat to the botanical garden island (cheaper than if you take from the dock at the hotel).
Gharb Seheil is 20 minutes by taxi (30LE) it is a more authentic Nubian village with shops and a boutique hotel called Anakato which has a serene view and a cafeteria with cheap drinks (2 juices and 2 teas for 25LE) but take the driver's number so that he picks you up after.
If you take a room on the east bank, the warm sunrise sun will wake you up, otherwise on the otherside you can watch the sunset.
