Great ValuePosted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Only stayed a few hours since my friends and I were heading to Abu Simbel. We were upgraded to a suite for free, which came with free water and a nice welcome snack. Staff were very friendly and packed us a take away breakfast for our excusion. One complaint; no free wi-fi.

nice settingPosted Apr 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel offers fine service, but is in need of an update and caters to large tour groups.

Good Location in AswanPosted Apr 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Hotel was older , but for a vacation stay, this was good as you don't spend time in your hotel room except to sleep. Hotel employee service was very good. Boat shuttle service to and from the hotel was excellent. The breakfast box for the 3AM Abu Simbel trip was a great feature. The restaurant food could have been better , but I shouldn't expect Ameriacn cooking in Egypt. After you got off the boat shuttle, the shopping bazaar was within walking distance. Always felt safe my entire stay in Aswan

Nice hotel on Elephantine IslandPosted Oct 13, 2012
Pros: The location and its view
Cons: Internet access was too expenses. No free WiFi
Location: Beautiful on Elephantine Island. They got a ferry station, which is free so it is very easy to access everything in Aswan
It's a very nice hotel on Elephantine Island. It has everything you need.

A calm retreatPosted Aug 17, 2012
Pros: A beautiful pool and good sized clean rooms, along with excellent standards of friendly service make this a great place to chill out.
Cons: No wi-fi in the rooms and no free Internet access anywhere. When the hotel is quite empty, as in our stay, the dining room is large and impersonal.
Location: Set on an island in the Nile, the location provides a tranquil setting which is nevertheless very close to central Aswan.
There were very few tourists in Aswan at the time of our visit, which was a shame as the place felt safe and has a lot to offer. The hotel provides an oasis of calm and comfort. The infinity pool is wonderful - and we often had it to ourselves! The staff are exceptionally welcoming and obliging - the room maid decorated the bed with petals creating different patterns each night. The lady in reception providing information was superb and arranged taxis whenever we wanted them, negotiating very reasonable prices. The 24 hr ferry really was as reliable and regular as the hotel claimed and, once again, the staff operating it were very polite and helpful. The hotel is spotless and well maintained. We would definitely recommend the hotel - it is just the place in which to relax after some very hot tourism. The only criticism would be an absence of wireless internet in the rooms - and no free internet access anywhere.

Far from the madding crowdPosted Apr 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
In the middle of the river so it is quiet but the down side is that you have to wait for the boat to get you there. Sometimes you have to wait longer than you like and it cost you more tips than it is worth to get your luggage there. We had a junior suite which was very comfortable but located on the ground floor meant that we had no view because of trees right in front of the windows. Cheaper rooms higher up have better views. Restaurant at the top of the tower is very expensive and not worth it. Restaurant lower down was mainly buffet and seemed to be aimed at the locals. Included breakfast was OK. Comfortable, quiet and clean but you pay a premium.

Movenpick stay - March 2012Posted Mar 24, 2012
Pros: The food was superb. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and the gardens beautifully kept.
Cons: The need to get a ferry across to the mainland.
Location: Once you have taken the short ferry ride across the river you are in the heart of town near the start of the souq.
Stayed at the hotel for three nights using Aswan as a base to visit Abu Simbel. Although I had elected for a non-smoking room I was offered the option of staying in a particularly good smoking room on the basis that it had fantastic views. I took this option and the room was superb. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the gardens around it were perfectly manicured and tended. The reception staff were extremely professional and helpful, even voluntarily adjusting my checkout time to fit in with my travel times. The food was excellent with the evening buffet great value at around £10. The swimming pool & gym were perfectly adequate. The only downside I can think of to this hotel was the need to get the ferry each time you wanted to visit town, although the boat ran every 10 mins & the journey only took about 5 mins. I'd definitely stay there again.

Movenpick AswanPosted Mar 9, 2012
We have normally stayed at the Old Cataract but because of their eyewateringly ridiculous prices, we thought we'd give the eyesore towering Movenpick a go for a week. The whole experience was a delight and the faff of staying on an island was negated by the very efficient free 24 hour ferry service provided by the hotel. We travelled to and from the airport using the hotel's own car service, a bit more expensive than a local taxi but with a late arrival and an early departure, it saved a lot of hassle.The Hotel was beautifully maintained and the whole staff were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us.The included breakfast was extensive and lunchtime meals around the pool were also excellent. We even sampled afternoon tea at the top of the tower (a bit like the Eiffel Tower- it's the only place you can't see it) with breathtaking views of the sunset at a fifth of the price of the Old Cataract! We honestly found nothing to criticise and would highly recommend a stay here
