Good location and view, great value for money.

Stayed 11 nights October 2016.
Had Nile View single room with double bed for about £23 sterling per night.
Despite the low price, my room (210) was as good as any 5 star hotel room, marble floors, nice decor, large bathroom with bath and shower, nice flat screen TV, safe, balcony directly over the nile with chairs and table . Tea and coffee making facilities (bring your own tea and ciffee). Location of this hotel is superb.
The cons:: appalling breakfast with nothing fresh including no fresh juices despite oranges outside the hotel available for about 30p sterling a kilo, same regarding bananas which grow in abundance locally here. Poor quality bread, Coffee even worse than the Aswan Movenpick, which is saying something. Lifts take an aeon to use, some of the staff pretty unfriendly including at least hall the reception staff, especially the women. Room service number usually never answered and occasionally when it was they didn't understand even if you quoted the menu dishes.
On the end they send someone to your room to take your order, which all takes forever and a day. Phone system in room doesn't allow outside calls despite the phone menu on the phone saying to the contrary. Pool staff particularly rude and unhelpful, don't even answer if you say hi or good morning.
Having said all that, if you dont mind skipping breakfast- I did, it's so bad - and can ignore the other failings, this is a super value hotel with truly lovely refurbished rooms.
