of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
We stopped at this hotel back in 2014 on our honeymoon but it was called the Sheraton then and it changed hands recently. We enjoyed the hotels location as the rooms faced the River Nile and it was not too far out of town area, only 15mins walk to main attractions. We called in again this year to speak to some of the staff but it was almost empty due to lack of tourist. There are some Felucca boats anchored outside to use and Motoboat as well, all with good rates. The main restaurant was empty as was the other restaurants inside the complex e.g. Indian and Italian. The views over the Nile are fantastic especially the Sunrise and Sunsets.The reception area and Toilets are very clean as the outside eating area`s and a seperate area for the Shusi Pipe smokers, the grounds are pleasant and tidy to relax in and the lovely swimming pool is circular and is almost on the Nile itself. There is also some Bungalows in the grounds with own swimming pool to use for families use if required. All in all a pleasant experience to stay here.
"Fantastic Nile views and scenery but underinvested and delepadated hotel."
Arrived but had to change apartment 3 times due to the significant lack of updating old and tired beds, mates session and malfunctioning air conditioning. Breakfast was a sad affair of low value menu choice. I guess it's a reflection of the economy at large where the Russians who contributed to at least 50% of their revenue have stopped visiting. However the extremely friendly natives, market traders, restaurants, horse carriage and taxi drivers made us forget about the quality of our hotel. There was a lot to explore, taste and feel. If youre visting the Cairo Museum avoid the toilets...they're broken with no water or toilet paper. Would definitely visit Egypt again but not by Egypt Air as both engines failed prior to landing and plane safely glide landed on our return back. True reflection of the state of affairs on the Egyptian economy.

""Sheraton on the River Nile""
A piece of serenity on the bank of river Nile, this hotel has all the feels of a great resort. The garden and pool area is the perfect place to catch a sunset on Nile. Breakfast was very good specially the bakery items. The set up is a bit oldish but nicely maintained. Only drawback I would say is that WiFi was available only in the lobby area. Overall, a great place to stay in the midst of an open air museum!!!
"NO WATER IN A 5 STAR HOTEL ROOM'''"
My husband and I stayed at this hotel as part of a travel package and incredibly we were assigned a room that had no water!!!!. you imagine that after installed and try to take a bath finds that there is no water in the shower' the solution was to call, wait for two employees who tried to fix the problem without success then redoing the bags and move to another room, but how this can happend in a 5 star hotel'
