The hotel has nice view over The lake, big rooms , it is walking distance to Abo simbel temple, the area around the pool is very nice. Food is ok and staff are not that professional but for the relaxing experience I would go there again

The hotel is well located near Abu Simbel Temples. The outside pool is beautiful as is the view of the lake Nasser. But the rooms are a bit dated. The room would need a good refresh. The bathroom is the worst. Look unclean probably, I hope, because the tiles are used and the tiles joints are gone at some place. No bottles of water were available in the rooms. As drinking the water in Egypt is not suggested for north american, they offered bottles in every hotel we went except this one. We had a buffet for dinner which was ok but not memorable. But if you want a good pool with good location near the temples and don't care about the room, then go for it.

The setting is magnificent, with all the rooms having a fantastic view over Lake Nasser and the very large swimming pools and outdoor bar add to the impression of Paradise. However, the restaurant is noisy, soulless and canteen-style. We ate a lunch, a dinner and a breakfast there, in that order, and the only meal that was more or less acceptable was the breakfast. Despite arriving early for both lunch and dinner, the "hot meals" were barely lukewarm, which is worrying in such a hot climate where fresh produce can go bad quickly. Most of the dishes were barely palatable. There was a particularly revolting, highly salted aubergine dish. Service slow and waiters usually surly. Likewise, the baggage porters were extremely persistent and refused to let us carry our own small bags and were most put out when they were thus not tipped. When we checked out I had to forcefully insist that we did not need their help.
Hotel room - nice but don't look to closely at the details, the housework could be better. Air conditioner noisy and complicated to operate. Wifi not available at all from the rooms and at reception and in the pool area it is very slow and unreliable. The pool area must be extremely noisy when it is crowded. It was bad enough when we were there - only a dozen people or so (at least two different groups apart from ourselves) but all talking very loudly (including one young Brit who was talking so loudly on his mobile phone that the phone was not necessary for the other party to hear him). The British were by far the noisiest and most selfish, the Hispanic group at the bar were actually talking at an acceptable volume. The general noise at the poolside was added to by the loud and mind-numbing music that was playing from the bar. Doesn't anyone come to Abu Simbel simply to relax in the sun after a visit to the temple and enjoy the peace and quiet of the beautiful scenery?

There is little choice of where to stay in Abu Simbel and the Seti is probably the best. The hotel is at least very close to the temple and the setting is fantastic. Enjoy it but don't expect a gastronomic experience or peace and quiet.

Like everywhere I have been in Egypt, the staff have made the hotel/resort what it is. Unfortunately the actual hotel is a little basic and in need of some TLC. The wifi is virtually non-existent although it is free in the common areas (there is no wifi capability in the rooms). There is no gym. The food does have a mass catering feel about it but it is included in the room rate. The Set is one of a very limited number of places to stay in Abu Simbel but it is exceedingly close to the temple.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to offer a similar standard of accommodation.
