During any of our world travels, I don't think we have received so much for so little a price. The Ramses Hotel room we had provided an splendid view of the river, as seen in my title page for Aswan, as well as here, and had the amenities of air-con, color TV, mini-refrigerator, comfortable queen sized bed and clean private bath--all for the equivalent of $15- American dollars. The Ramses Hotel is situated in the center town, with reasonable access to the Corniche, but also to the route leading across the tracks to both the train station and shuttle van station. This high rise hotel has many rooms, but apparently tour groups book their frequently. We stayed elsewhere on the first night. But, because there are so many perfectly adequate hotels in Aswan, there really is no need to book in advance even during high season. This is after all only a two star hotel, but it's a great one if one can get a room overlooking the river.
