Fresh air. Calm away from cairo. Good molokheya. Very good hamam. Very very very good duck (actually exquisite duck). And of course the fetir

Lovely view.

People there were very welcoming and nice.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

I never understood people who treat their guest in a trashy way!!!
That was the worst service I ever had. This Guy "blond Egyptian Manager" has zero respect for his guest.
We ordered food, then we tried to order some drinks, it took them an hour to get us the first round of drinks, then we asked for another round of drinks, but they did not get it, after we even reminded them twice!! we decided to leave, we asked why the drinks weren't served, they answered in a cold way "we forgot"

Don't go there

If you love to try new dishes, Sobek has the best duck in town. Al Fayyum is known for raising ducks and it is very common to eat ducks in Egypt. I have recently tried their duck dish their and it was just like no other. It comes as a set dish with rice, salad and molokheya which is a kind of vegetable soup that could be eaten with bread or poured over your rice. The view was amazing looking over the fields with palm trees and very relaxing. I haven't stayed in their lodge yet but will definitely do that next time I'm in town.

Owner was very rude and he gave us rooms in another guest house although we book in November he he assured us that all rooms are in the lodge. We had single reservations and he puts us 4 in the same room and did not refund the money back. The food was very poor and the portions really very small. The rooms very cold inside and the floor in some rooms is still durt. I don't recommend this lodge for anybody, people will get a wrong impression about Tunis which is a very lovely village

Want to take a break from Cairo's bustling and consuming life?

Go for this relaxed lodge in the laidback artesanian village of Tunis, where Switzerland and French Pottery craftsmen have build up there own pottery schools.

Sobek Lodge is packed with a very kind and helpful staff, but foremost it has the most relaxed and laid-back lifestyle manager, check out the evenings sitting round the fireplace with all of the villages Bedouins, listening to drum-music and singing and zipping a beer ;)
