A very good hotel in the fantastic valley of Abu Simble.

The rooms are adequately furnished in a bright setting.

I stayed at the Seti Hotel Abu Simbel for one night because I wanted to spend more time at the temple site and also to see the sound and light show in the evening. Most tourist fly or drive from Aswan and only get two hours to spend at the temple
site before returning back to Aswan. I really enjoyed my stay at the Seti Hotel because it was clean and comfortable and the hotel was beautifully landscaped and has a beautiful view of the lake. The dinner was wonderful, great variety of meats, side dishes and desserts. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay at Abu Simbel for more than a day trip.
[...] The quality of the room was terrible: shoddy fixtures, the top of the nightstand was not secured so it almost slid off when I moved the lamp by the bed; paint spatters on the walls and where they had painted the window sills they had gotten
it on the window itself, etc. Worst? The shower / tub was not sealed at the base so it leaked a river of water all over the bathroom floor. And no toiletries. No tea service or hot water kettle. No internet access. [...] The breakfast dinner buffet that were included were marginal. I have stayed in super nice resorts across the world and to call this place a resort and charge what they charge per night is just unreal. I have also stayed in backpacker joints around the world, too and this would rate as a BAD backpacker place. My wife and I have traveled to over 30 countries (including Syria and Jordan) and we felt that this was one of the worst places we have ever stayed.

We had lunch and diner at Eskaleh Nubian Lodge and the food was quite good. We asked to see their rooms and they looked nicer than Seti and were half the cost. The staff was very nice. I wished we had stayed there instead.
We got to Abu Simbel around 11 am, so had plenty of time spending at the hotel. Even though the weather was not hot enough for swimming, we enjoyed the view at the pool side. The hotel kept the landscapeing very well, lots of flowers here and
