Extremly overpriced. Prices are doubled or even tripled. Even when they "help", they guide us towards overpriced services, maybe they get a commission. A lunch with 90 minutes tour in lake Nasser costed us 1000EGP (50euros) whereas it is supposed to cost half or even less. Two lunches and two dinners costed us 1600EGP for an average quality food, in...

I am just back after staying one night at this incredible lodge. Don't miss this unique experience! This Lodge is so quiet with only 5 guest rooms and a perfect outdoor area for eating, reading or contemplating the day. Goma is a wonderful man who will show you the Nubian attire, water jugs and other treasures inside. Try the fish...

We spent one night at this lodge and it was such a lovely experience---everything about the place is artistic and beautiful and restful---from the rooms to the gardens to the terrace. The owner, Fikry el Kashef and his son, Hasan, made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious too. Abu Simbel is a small town in rural Egypt and--outside...

We stayed one night in this lodge and it was a wonderfull experience! From the 5 hotels we visited in Egypt during our trip, this is our number one! With it's large, clean & comfortable room, authentic architecture and quiet atmosphere this lodge easily outranks in our opinion a 5 star beachresort at the Red Sea. Great local kitchen too....

The guesthouse is Well decorated, the owner and staff are very welcoming and the food is very good. The rooms are very dark (real Nubian style), bathroom a little dated but there is strong hot water and A-C in the room. Beds are firm, which we like.

The family who built and run this eco-lodge are dedicated to sharing traditional Nubian culture and a sustainable lifestyle less than 2 km of the best-preserved temples in Egypt. The founder and his wife lived in Switzerland for years. She's a great cook. They returned to their native home with a vision of sharing Nubian history and architecture with tourists....
