This is a really lovely place. The garden area is very peaceful and beautiful, and the view is fantastic! The room is quite comfortable, though there was a temporary glitch with the wifi and we did lose water for a bit. Taha and his brother are very kind and willing to help in any way. He helped arrange my tour to Abu Simbel and gave me information on other tours and transportation options I was looking into. They offer a free boat shuttle service to and from the ferry terminal on the East Bank, which is quite convenient. If you don't want to hassle them, there is a public ferry down the road which charges foreigners 5LE each way. The location on Expedia was misrepresented at the time of my booking, placing it on the east bank, but it is definitely on the west bank. There are drawbacks and benefits to being on that side of the Nile. You can arrange to have dinner prepared for you at a cost, but it will take 2-3 hours, so best to schedule a time. Breakfast was okay. The place also seems to be a local gathering spot for people to hang out and have coffee, which is nice. Overall I highly recommend this place, especially if you are looking for a place to relax.
