Lonely Planet review
The 36 spotless rooms vary in size and some are gloomy, but all have a private bathroom and most have air-con (which is controlled at reception), all in all offering good value for money. The great rooftop terrace has a small swimming pool with a few poolside chairs and spectacular Nile views.
Our independent authors have visited Hathor Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Aswan.
