    Perfect

    🚗 Traffic: Because Aswan is not very big in terms of traffic, it is very convenient to go anywhere. The Nile River is especially beautiful when the weather is fine. Sanitation: In terms of hygiene, the hotel is cleaned very actively. There is a very high-end feeling everywhere and there is no garbage. Not a single place is dirty. 🍃Environment: Needless to say, the environment is very comfortable. The waiters are very dedicated. When the weather is very hot, they are wearing tuxedos. The service attitude is very good. Basically, they often come to greet you. What do you need?

      The food at the hotel is not good, the foie gras at 1902 in the Centennial Restaurant is basically salt foie gras, and is a large grain of salt, Mrs. too bad. Hygienic general, glass door with handprints. The hotel pulled the luggage rudely, and the pull rod of my suitcase was cocked straight. But the hotel has a good view and the room is decorated with special features. It's a good deal.

      A hotel with a sense of ceremony and culture. The novel The Tragedy on the Nile, written by British writer Agatha Christie, was written at this hotel. The film of the same name was shot here. This is the best hotel in Aswan, it is really an oasis in the desert! The scenery is super beautiful, the restaurant is not expensive, it is really a legendary hotel

      Probably the best hotel in Egypt, the waiters are enough, the incomparable Nile and Lake views, the meals are also good, basically all Western food, most of the guests are rich European and American silver-haired elderly groups, can add extra beds!

      Needless to say, full score 💯. There are no disadvantages. Earlier, Ctrip paid the full price and set a preferential price, which is cheaper than what I see on major websites. According to my request, the store gave the Nile River View Room with a high floor in the new building. In the evening, the sunset was first-class on his balcony. The breakfast is very rich, just a variety of dessert cakes and bread can satisfy me, and Egyptian specialty breakfast, full buffet. The hotel provides various services for guests, including check-in and check-out, and you do n’t have to take your own luggage for delivery. All are handled by the manager. In-house guests can also visit the Agatha and Churchill rooms for free, with a dedicated person to explain. There are several top restaurants in the hotel. We did not go out to eat. I felt that the hotel restaurant was reassuring. I ate for two nights. It ’s great.
