                The location is by Nile river, you can see the view from your bacony.

                It is totally not worth the price. The water is cold, they turn off the wifi at night, says wifi need rest. And the service is really bad, they gave us very expensive price to abusinbay, so we want to call other agent, the guy on the reception refuse to call for us, says their phone not allowed to call outside. I ask why your abusinbay price so expensive, the guy said, it is just it is, not his problem, I ask why wifi so slow, he said it is not his problem. Just it is. The guy in the reception is the worst staff I ever meet on my trip.

                It is a centrally located very comfortable boutique hotel. You get a great service and they make you feel at home. I highly recommend anyone who would like to see Aswan.

                hotel staff are true customer-oriented. They are always willing to go the extra mile for your needs.. The hotel location is just EXCELLENT with a remarkable NILE View.

                the breakfast buffet is very poor with limited choices. the rooms are a little noisy through the day due to traffic on the corniche. hotel restaurant is available only during the day time!!

                The location is good alongside the river although no Nile view. Room is very clean with hot water shower. Staff can refer many trips and felucca trip with reasonable price. A decent hotel.

                Price is a little bit high compared to the total service package, but still reasonable.

                The staff was really nice and helpful. They don't understand English well but were really willing to help -- even come upstairs to figure out what I meant on the phone. It's located in the downtown of Aswan, of where the beautiful Nile lies in front. ATM is on the right of the hotel.

                The staff were wonderful. The manager, Hanan, is amazing. Everyone at the hotel is friendly and willing to help especially the people working at the front desk. The river views from the rooms are great and everything is clean and well taken care of. The Philae is a great place to stay, and I would recommend it to anyone.

                The Philae lived up to their well deserved reputation, great location and friendly and helpfull staff. Secure parking for Motorcycle was in-front with the security guard. Right on the Corniche and plenty of good eateries nearbye. Neat and very clean by any standard. Good breakfast included. For me this was an above-average stay.

                -Room is very clean and comfortable. -Most of staff are friendly and caring. -Good value for money.

                -Hot water shuts off after 5 to 10 mins, so expect water to turn cold on you if you are have a long shower. -TV has very few working channels, like 4 or 5. - AC is not working very good, so it would ruin your stay if you are visiting in summer. - They dont allow you to host any person in your room.

                In the center, convenient to all attractions in Aswan. The manager/owner Helen is a wonderful host and made me feel at home right away.

                The price was a bit high, in comparison to other hotels of similar category in Egypt. The breakfast was fair and it could improve by providing more fruits, and better quality of coffee.
