Overpriced but good quality in Aswan”

One of the best hotels in Aswan. The location is perfect. The city hotels is too noisy and that’s why this hotel is perfect choice. New, nice hotel, the food is average. Breakfast was good. AC is too loud and there is no little/small option, so its too windy. Unfortunately the price is REALLY high and you didnt get enough for your money. They are lucky because most of the hotels in Aswan is awful, so they can charge you any price…

Great way to relax, but at a price!”

Staff are amazing and the location is stunning. However once you are on the island you are kind of stuck. Only one restaurant to choose from with a very limited menu. No alcohol on the menu. Supposed to be adults only but I did see a child. Just stay one or 2 nights maximum or it becomes expensive as each time you ask for transport it is US$15 minimum per person to get a boat, more if you need a car at the other end. Also water is limited to one bottle per person per day. No shop on site and mini bar is over inflated and alcohol free ofcourse. Staff are really helpful, polite and speak excellent English. They are always willing to carry bags and take you up and down the steep hill by golf buggy. They learn your names and remember your previous orders eg iced coffee. Building is ongoing so you do hear construction noise but on a small scale. Maybe we will come back when it is finished!

Beautiful but have potential to be better. ”

The view, cleanliness and staff was impeccable. The issue is the access to the hotel is annoying, the unnamed dock to the hotel is located in a shady and undeveloped town, 20 min boat ride but doesn’t have a sign that’s for BenBen and then a high incline walk/motor cart up to the hotel and rooms. When you’re in, everything is perfect. I wish there’s more activities to do inside the hotel. They have 1 restaurant and a meditation place. They said there’s going to be a spa soon. If they add more activities in the hotel then people can enjoy the inside and not have to go through the hassle of coming in and out of the hotel. Maybe a gym, a large pool for everyone, shops to buy local food and souvenirs. I hope the spa is large and have a lot of massages, facial, etc. Lastly, the customer service was amazing. They arranged the boat at 4am since my flight was so early and gave a breakfast box to go.

Exceptional”

nice and clean hotel , staff is friendly, helpful, location is on the island, so it’s quite isolated from everything. If you want to go to Aswan town, you have to take a boat and a car to go there. it's difficult to find a taxi. it's mean that you should hire private car for more comfortable. Moreover hotel will charge more over for extra service such as car driver, felucca boat, a day trip to Abu Simbel. (Some service is plus more than 100% ) If you want to visit some places in town. I don’t recommend to stay here. Because it’s so far. But if you want to relax and take a rest in a nice hotel . Benben is good choice.

spectacular experience in a magical place ”

Still we can't get over the presence of such a beautiful place located on an isolated island in the middle of the Nile . The panoramic views, the tranquil setting, the surreal reflection of mountains on a mirror like river and the most extraordinary , smiling and welcoming staff we ever met . Starting from the phone call when we were on the way to check on us and confirm the timing of the arrival for the shuttle boat to be waiting for us. I was actually celebrating our anniversary and it was a total surprise for my husband. The highlight of the trip was the upgrade we got as a gift for our anniversary. The room was beautifully decorated with attention to details, the private outdoor jacuzzi with an amazing view that we didn't leave for our whole stay, the whole staff was working 24/7 to make the best out of our stay directed by Mr. Sherif who was very keen to help us with everything that we needed. We can not thank enough every single beautiful smile that we met for making this anniversary a special one, we would defiantly come back and we strongly recommend for couples.

This is a brand new hotel situated close to Philae island, on a neighboring island. Each room has its own pool/jacuzzi and beautiful views of the river, temple and surrounding islands. The rooms are spacious with tasteful decorations making use of local styles and artists. The food is Egyptian cuisine on a high level, really delicious and fresh, tastes like home made. Staff is very friendly and helpful. If you like to explore luxury and relax in an amazing setting away from mass tourism, this is your place.
