5/5 Excellent

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Fantastic in every way. Room was excellent, with an en suite. Mustafa, Humada, Hima and the others were all lovely giving people, nothing too much effort and taught us about Nubian culture (thank you all!! hope to return). And for only 75 EGP (£3) Mustafa makes a killer breakfast that will leave you full and happy all week!! The views are UNBELIEVABLE, must be the best in all of Aswan. Super calm stretch of the Nile (not like the East side of the island), right beneath the Aga Khan mausoleum, the Botanical Gardens, the new Monastery of St. Simeon, and the Temple of the Nobles. And a really unique experience staying in a Nubian village, which feels very authentic but safe, welcoming, and low on the hassle. Good price for boats and tours through the hotel, not the very cheapest, but worth it to skip the hassle - we went on an amazing sunset felucca ride.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Nice view, hard to get to, feels unsafe
No way to get to this place from the City, boat ride was asking for 25 dollars to get in and get out from this place. Nice views from the boat, good experience of Nile river in Aswan Staff hung around watching us, we were the only ones on the boat, was kind of creepy.

An incredibly unique, luxury, boutique boathouse
If you are looking for a memorable, unique and luxurious experience in Aswan... THIS IS IT!!!! You will regret it if you don't book this place. This was truly a luxury experience! The service was absolutely amazing. Tamer left no detail undone. He welcomed us on a private motorboat that brought us from the mainland to the boathouse at 1am when our train arrived. He planned an entire 2 day itinerary for us that included the most beautiful Feluca ride and a trip to the Nubian Village with authentic dinner recommendations. On the second day, he arranged for us to have a very nice/modern private car + driver to bring us to Abu Simbel and back. The hospitality at Anakob is unmatched. This is a boutique luxury boathouse. It is immaculately clean, the bed is so comfortable, the shower is nice and hot, breakfast on the deck watching the felucas ride by on the Nile is one of the most breathtaking views I have ever experienced. I cannot believe I found this place.
