What a dream! Nubian Lotus was one of the most memorable stops on our amazing Egypt journey. We were drawn by interest in learning about Nubian culture which owners Osama and Marta generously shared together with great tips for our 1 day visit in the area. Their home on Elephant Island was a dream with gorgeous view of the Nile, sand dunes and botanical garden. Though only a 1 night visit, we felt rested after a few busy days in Cairo and realigned for our onward dahabiya cruise. Our room was extremely comfortable with excellent traditional breakfast and dinner served on the rooftop. Thank you Osama and Marta for a wonderful visit!

Osama and Marta could not have been kinder. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them and being with them made our 4 days in Aswan absolutely wonderful. The apartment was even better than in the photos and the balcony overlooking the beautiful river Nile a dream. Aswan should be an important part of any holiday in Egypt. The people are friendly and helpful and the river is especially lovely here. We loved our rides in Osama&#39;s boat. Come to Egypt, come to Aswan, come to the Nubian Lotus. Egypt is safe and will be the most amazing trip of your life.
The only thing we didn&#39;t like was leaving!

Really enjoyed the stay, wish i could&#39;ve stayed a few extra nights.”

Really nice rooftop views. And the apartment was huge.
It was tricky to get to the west side. You either had to go back to aswan, taking 2 ferries in total, or go with a private boat.

Perfect location, very comfortable apartment, and extremely friendly staff made us feel at home.”

Beautiful views of the Nile! The deluxe apartment was huge, comfortable and very clean. Traveled with family so we had a lot of luggage, but Osama met us at the ferry boat landing near KFC and took us in his own boat directly to the hotel and took care of our luggage. Marta made us a fantastic Italian dinner. It was very easy. Osama and Marta are very friendly. They provided everything we needed. I would not consider staying anywhere else in Aswan. In fact, we enjoyed our stay at the Nubian Lotus more than the 5-star hotels we stayed at in Cairo and at a fraction of the cost.
I cannot think of a single thing that we didn&#39;t like about our stay.

Amazing hosts! It’s a beautiful location on Elephantine with a great view. Just a few rooms so it’s very intimate. I think this is the best place to stay on Elephantine based on what we saw and conversations we had with others.

It was a flat in a house with a complete kitchen; however, we did not use it due to our short stay. If I wanted to stay longer in Aswan, I would use the Nubian Lotus. The breakfast was served on the roof of the house.

great guesthouse”

Nubian lotus is very nice guesthouse on rural elephantine Island. Osama, the Nubian Egyptian owner and host will shuttle you around in his boat, help with luggage and tour planning. His Italian wife, Marta, prepares great meals and is always available to help. They only have 2 rooms for rent. It is a small family operation. Very personal and friendly. Elephantine has no cars, no paved roads. It is an authentic egyptian village. It is very safe, even at night for walking anywhere. Highly recommended.

Perfect comfortable stay.”

The hosts, Marta and Osama are super friendly and took care of us perfectly. We ate breakfast and dinner here each day, it was totally flexible, the food is great and the terrace is a perfect place to sit, look across the river and watch the sun going down in peace and natural surroundings. The area on the island is a small rural community. Everyone we saw here was friendly and welcoming and the area seems totally safe and hassle free. A nice change from Luxor.

Idyllic Nubian experience with spectacular Nile view”

A highlight of our Egyptian holiday, this little slice of paradise offered perfect hospitality and a magical view of green and gold. Just stepping off the short ferry ride to Elephantine Island (after sleeper train from Cairo) is a calming experience - away from traffic and hubbub into sandy pathways and friendly smiles. The apartment was so spacious, cool and comfortable for our family of three, and could never tire of the view from terrace and rooftop above. Straight across to Kitcheners island, lush palms and greenery backed by high golden dunes - heavenly all day and irresistible at sunset as feluccas drift by. Husband plunged immediately into Nile for a cool-off, daughter enraptured by cats and kitten, rabbits, geese and puppy, then Marta served up tastiest pizza melanzane this side of Naples. Enjoyed our peaceful sunset felucca ride and also loved strolling the little alleys, absorbing Nubian way of life. This is an ideal base for tours to wonderful Philae etc. Osama and Marta were also super helpful in arranging our next leg, driving to Luxor with stops at Kom Ombo, Edfu and Esna.
Two nights was not enough :( Wish we’d had another few days to soak up that idyllic Nile view, relax over Egyptian breakfast (with Italian coffee), eat out at ‘Bob Marley’s’ and explore the island more. Osama and Marta are the most relaxed and charming couple, interesting to chat to, so friendly with kids and creating a Nubian ‘good life’ in a spectacular setting. Highly recommend the experience and would love to return for a longer stay.

Amazing views and location for families on a budget.”

The location on Elephantine Island was amazing and the size of the apartment was huge. This is a great place for larger families to stay at a very reasonable price. The breakfast was very large and the cook was flexible on what she prepared (traditional Egyptian or lighter European breakfast). The owners were also very helpful planning activities and answering our questions about Elephantine Island.

Everything was perfect and handled with great care! Marta and Osama are extremely welcoming, kind and supportive. Osama even woke up at 3:30 AM to make fresh coffee and hand us our brown bag breakfast before our morning tour to Abu Simbel. He also organised the transfer from the Island to the main Dock outside the ferry&#39;s working hours. Absolutely adorable. The room was the nicest we stayed during our trip: super clean, with a colourful and creative touch, with a comfortable double bed, and fully equipped with plenty of towels, soap, hair dryer and kitchen appliances. We missed absolutely nothing. The terrace on the top of the building is a peaceful place to relax and have breakfast with view on the Nile and the Botanic Garden. Wonderful. This is also where we had our delicious egyptian breakfast, which Marta prepared for us on the spot with fresh and tasty food that they grow in their little garden. The house is on the Elephantine Island, between two small Nubian villages. The island is very quite and silent, and it&#39;s connected to Aswan through a ferry that goes back and forth every 5 minutes for only 5 EGP (ca. 0.25€) per person. Very comfortable and ideal to stay away from the noise of the city. We loved it! Thank you Marta and Osama.
