Stayed there for 1 night with the family. Very good nubian food, and extremely friendly atmosfere. They will do everything to make you comfortable. Accomodation is simple, but clean. Don't expect big luxury, but for sure I would return.

Gorgeous desert-landscaped property with lots of interesting traditional decor items in nooks along the hallways and in the rooms. Superfriendly family run lodge with great home cooked food. Clean comfortable large bedrooms and bathrooms with all mod cons. Mosquito nets on the beds. I was there with a very small tour group and we only stayed for one night while...

This is a great family run Lodge. Staying here allows you to see the Light and Sound show at Abu Simbel and in its own right is a lovely place to stay. You can walk to Abu Simbel in 25 minutes or get a taxi or tuk tuk. The rooms are lovely and we had one with a small garden....

The Eco Lodge is a very different type of hotel, and very much has a “bed and breakfast” feel to it with a heavy Nubian home theme. If you are expecting a modern hotel, then look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a friendly, clean, relaxing property at a very good value, then look no farther. The hotel is...

This place is surely unique with Nubian charm and plenty of books to get familiar with Nubian people and Egypt in general, if you have not done it beforehand. I was met by several staff members, who showed me the rooms as it was a random choice for me and I did not book in advance. As it was a...

Typical Nubian style: thick walls, small windows, decorated the Nubian way. A very relaxing place after a day of travel or visits. The owner, wel-known Nubian musician Fakry el Kashef welcomes his guests. Everybody immediately feels at home here: a relax feeling of coming home. Staff is most friendly and helpful. Rooms are charming and clean, equiped with airco. Temperature...

Much more than a hotel, this place really makes you feel at home. The rooms are charming and clean and there are plenty of areas to relax, have a drink or just gazing at lake Nasser. The owner is an extremely friendly and interesting man. Food was wonderful and plentiful. We really enjoyed our stay.
