This hotel, in a modern building, is very much a home away from home – literally so for quite a few archaeologists during the winter season. The charming owners make everyone feel welcome and the 11 homey rooms, overlooking the lake or a dried-up branch of the Nile, are well maintained and pristinely clean.
The upstairs rooftop restaurant, where breakfast is served, has great Nile views as well as cold beer and good traditional Egyptian food (set menu LE50). The same family also own the nearby, slightly newer Gezira Garden (s/d/chalet €30/40/70).
Located in Gezira El Bairat, El Gezira Hotel features air-conditioned accommodation with free Wi-Fi and a balcony overlooking the Nile River.
