We took a Felucca ride around Elephantine Island. The back side of the island is goldenly silent. The stillness is only broken by bird calls, and the hum of occasional ferry motor.
We saw the Nubian ruins of Abu, the Mausoleum of Aga Khan, the manicured botanical gardens of Kitchener Island, Aswan's own Valley of the Kings, and plenty of …
Aswan has a very different feel. Life is slower, the touts a little gentler. It's hard times here, as it is all over Egypt. Mahmoud, a local tour operator, says there is 1/10th the business there usually is at this time of year. The felucca captains introduce themselves to you, hoping you'll remember the name of their boat.

Ivan sees a dead donkey on the road side. I see a dead dog, in full rigor. Corpses of animals just seem to be left where they die. Perhaps it is because they are just newly fallen.
It is Coptic Christmas. The huge church is buzzing. The women dress differently. No hijab, though the eye make up is still on the heavy side. Slacks and …
Ayant quitté la veille le Caire pour se rendre à Aswan (un trajet de plus de 1000 km le long du Nil), notre nuit en train fut sans histoire malgré des couchettes un peu moins confortable que les lits du Hilton. Il faut souligner que la bouteille de vin qui a accompagné notre souper dans le train (D'ailleurs, il fallait tenir notre …

Historical Traveler Reviews LTI - Pyramisa Isis Island Resort & Spa Aswan
May I take this opportunity to thank everyone at The Pyramisa Isis Island for a fantastic holiday we have just returned from. Even though all the amenities were not open as promised we can honestly say that this did not spoil our holiday at all. A SPECIAL THANK YOU MUST GO OUT TO ALL OF YOUR STAFF WHICH EVER DEPARTMENT THEY WORKED FOR. They were always there to help when needed and had always got a smile for you when ever they saw you. The hotel was as usual up to the very high standard that we have come to expect from Pyramisa hotels and may I also thank you for the birthday cake that was made for my wife and myself. Our only regret is that we could not have stayed longer with you, but we hope to return in the not to distant future
hotel de bonne qualité, très bien situé sur une ile et bien desservi pour la traversée vers le centre ville.
Nice enough but...
This hotel is nice but definitely does not live up to either its rating or its reputation. The rooms are decent and the pools are indeed great but if you plan on spending any time in the city of Aswan, the boat ride back and forth is a huge detriment, particularly if you plan on making trips after 10 pm. We frequently had to stay waiting for the boat and though the ride was nice, the inconvenience definitely outweighs the beauty of an island oasis idea. So good choice if you are going for a resort feel (they have mini golf, a zoo, etc) bad choice if you actually want to experience Egypt. And keep in mind there is no where to buy food on the island so if you want snacks for kids or anything make sure you bring it before you get on the boat!
This hotel was terrible
We stayed at the Pyramisa Hotel, Aswan in May 2006, the second of two Pyramisa hotels in our trip. It is my understanding now that these hotels were built many years ago and have maintained their 5* rating despite lack of upkeep and modernity. From the outside this hotel seems to be nice and inviting but once in the room it is quite obvious that they are outdated and in some cases dilapidated. We were extremely displeased with this hotel and would recommend that anyone intending to stay there consider other options in the Aswan area.
As a frequent (annual) visitor to Egypt, both as tour escort and individual traveler, I have sampled every type of resort and hotel, from 5-star deluxe to 2-star basic. My best stays have ALWAYS been at Pyramisa Isis Island Hotel and Resort....which I found, originally, almost by accident. We had been booking their Corniche Garden Hotel, opposite the main entance to the Native Souk. However in 1982 we were, surprisingly, taken to the BRAND NEW Isis Island property. I have been booking a three week stay, there, every year since., in either September or October.
Fabulous island location - the free private boat trips back and forth are priceless, as it glides
The first mistake we made was to book 2 rooms that don't actually exist, that being a nile view terrace room with a queen bed. These room were advertised by the hotel over the net. The hotel "upgraded" us (we found out later to cheaper rooms) one of which was next to the lifts and the Albert Hall sized reception area. At 11.45pm that night a 300 strong egyptian wedding party camped out in reception (with music). The following day we were moved to another room after complaining only this one's door didn't lock, the aircon didn't work and the light by the bed electrical wire was held together by a four way connector. Despite asking for the door and aircon to be fixed it never was.
I stayed at the Isis Island Resort Hotel for 1 week end Feb./beg. March 2006.....travelling with VJV. Aswan has yet to become a widely known destination for Brits. seeking some winter sunshine...long may THAT continue!....and the 'International Airport' has only been open for approx. 8 years...hence there are fairly few flights in or out....and therefore NO delays either way!(The airport is very smart & clean...but has as yet extremely limited 'Duty Free' facilities in which to while away the time whilst waiting to fly home!They have a captive audience so could scoop much more...! Although there is also a coffee-bar - with smokers' area - in the departure lounge)
Avoid this place like the plague!
We were originally booked to stay one night at the Old Cataract Hotel but due to a conference, our travel agent booked us at Isis Island. We arrived from Cairo at 11:45 PM and were kept waiting 30 minutes before they could give us our room. They kept saying "We're making a room ready" but would not explain what that meant. The staff were arrogant, the room in great need of repair. Never again.
Not a 4 star hotel
My wife and I stayed at this hotel on Sep 28 and 29, 2005 and were very disappointed. Our room was very shabby: the carpet was quite dirty, paint was peeling off the woodwork, the closet doors were difficult to open, the veneer on the dresser and table was peeling off and there was no hot water, the food was only so so. Definitely not worth the money.
