The main cool thing about this hotel is that it still retains its 1st century charm.

Among the most famous people who stayed here highlighted: Agha Khan, Howar Carter, Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, Lady Di or Francoid Mitterrand.

It is a very nice ship where all the rooms are suites, a four night cruise with full board. The deal is very good as is common on all cruises, and the food too. You have a buffet at breakfast and lunch, and dinner is served a la carte. When you return to the ship after excursions, it's funny because the crew are waiting for you with wet towels and hot lemon drink. The idea of the towels towels is that when you arrive with all the heat, it passes through the body and you acclimate, the effect is amazing and so it that drink. The first day was a bit reluctant to try it, but when I tried it I found it was great. It is also curious that the ships are moored next to each other and to get to yours have to walk through the lobby of others. A recommendation, on the ship they usually sell you the typical excursion Dvd that you made, try them, because sometimes when you return home, what you find will surprise you or will not be well recorded, or no sound, etc. .. . and try getting your money back then!.
Egypt is a place worth visiting and this hotel is certainly worth visiting as part of your visit. The hotel is super original in that it is located on its own island, and right in the middle of the Nile River. It even has its own small zoo. You can see how are you in the middle of an island, with the desert in the distance and the city across the river. It is even a decent place to watch the sunset.
