Al Babinshal is clean, picturesque ( within its walls), tastefully put together, with a very friendly and efficient staff. Trouble is, Siwa's downtown has become a noisy bustling hub, so this will not be a quiet stay! The other thing to bear in mind is that the beds and pillows are quite hard, so I'd advise whoever stays there to...

OK. If you are looking for a standard hotel with pool and fancy buffet breakfast, look elsewhere. There are some relatively smart places in Siwa, even though the regular tourist crowd don't come here now, unless they're Egyptian, because of fears of troubles in Egypt in recent years. However, I can honestly say that I had a fantastic first experience...

It is an amazing hotel, cave like with beams made from palm tree trunks. The staff is very welcoming and greatly helpful. Everything gives you the traditional style of Siwa! I would recommend it to anyone into desert safari! Also try sand-boarding! They also offer a great local breakfast and make sure to try the grilled chicken in a local...

I have marked this down because for example when I checked into my room, there was a full ashtray and empty cigarette packet. The room was never cleaned or the bed made up. Neither really worried me. The staff were pleasant, the breakfast was good, the roof restaurant area was a delight and it was slap bang in the middle...

Deciding to make our way out to the Siwa Oasis meant eliminating Abu Simbel and Dahab from our three week trek around Egypt, but, from photos we had seen online, we had to see the Siwan salt flats, hot springs and date groves with urgency. Our accommodations at the Al-Babinshal were suitable for the likes of William and Kate. The...
