The hotel was fine. The bed were ok and I would have slept well if it had not been for the mosquitoes. When I complained I was given a plug-in device that did nothing to combat the nightly horde. I ended up buying a mosquito net in Aswan. I don't understand why the owner does not simply put screens on the windows.
The worst thing about the hotel for me was the location. It is in the middle of tumbledown collection of houses in various states of disrepair. I ended up spending more on cabs to and from the hotel then on the hotel itself. I tried to walk to Aswan even though it would have been an hour and half stroll but pedestrians are not allowed to cross the dam. One muse go by vehicle. This becomes very expensive very fast. I had booked the hotel to use as a base fr exploring Aswan but by the third night realized this would not work out.
Another thing I did not like was that the hotel charges 50 pounds for dinner while the same dinner could be had in Aswan for 15. I ate at the hotel because there are no other restaurants, bakeries or taverns in the village.
The hotel would work for someone who is part of a package tour but for an independent traveler on a budget it is not doable.
