Excellent 3 nights stay here before Christmas. Loved the location (easy ferry ride to town ) & hosts. Family room has own bathroom. Delicious buffet breakfast on rooftop lounge. Thanks for the stay in this hidden part of Aswan.

The best thing about Bet el Kerem is the hospitality and the open terrace.You could spend hours enjoying the serenity of the Nubian village and the view of the Nile flowing by the side. It is not a 5-star hotel but a great bed and breakfast joint. It is situated on the West bank of Nile away from all the...

My partner and I just spent two nights at this Guesthouse. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel very welcome. The guesthouse is on the West Bank, just under the Tomb of the Nobles, and within a Nubian village. If you get the local ferry, then head up the pathway and Bet El Kerem is the...

Bet El Kerem is located on the west bank of the nile, across from the city of Aswan. It is easy walking distance from the train station, however you must take a short ferry ride. You will probably spend most of your time on the roof top patio chatting with Abdule or the other staff. The view is spectacular in...

The place is really chilling and well maintained. Everything works (hot shower, AC and etc). As for WiFi, you may need to ask Abdullah the owner of the place. They have a very good friendly hospitable operation team and you will feel like home. The price is quite high for a guesthouse and for dinner too. But dinner is AMAZING....

This place may be a bit harder to find and get to at first (although once you know the way it is easy and very nice) but it is well worth the effort. The owner/hosts are awesome and extremely accomodating. The food is great and the accomadations very clean and nice if simple. Most importantly you will be right in...

Bet el Kerem is the ideal place for those visiting Aswan and are looking for a peaceful and serene place to stay. The view of the tombs nearby from the rooftop during the evenings is very pretty indeed. The hosts at the guesthouse were ever ready to do everything in their power to make sure we felt at home.

I was welcomed by the owner in person and offered refreshments. The rooms were neat and tidy and there was a terrace where one had a view of the town of Aswan as well as into the vast desert and historic structures atop the hill nearby. There was only 2 of us in the hostel and hence the owner invited...
