Tuya Hotel was a good affordable hotel for one nights stay. We arrived at 15.00hrs and a three course meal was offered, soup - vegetable soup with lots of oil; meat tagine with rice; and a small selection of fruit. The beds and sheets were clean; rooms tastefully decorated in Nubian style. Very cool due to high rounded ceiling. Facilities in bathroom were slightly under par; (room 4) (1) the shower actually sprayed, from the head connection, all over the place, thus the floor was completely saturated even before a shower was attempted. (2) Electric points in the room were ok; (3) TV's only channel was from Arabia Mecca and showed the historic Temple during a continuous pray ritual. So not even a local Aswan / Egyptian station to watch. (4) Basic breakfast which included flat bread. Which was quite acceptable. (5) The times of meals were confusing as we expected an evening meal but none was available. Having said that the general feeling of the place was warm, friendly, and accommodating. Would I recommend this hotel, Yes but do not expect a 5* accommodation. It is basic but comfortable.

Stayed overnight to visit Abu Simbel and I was satisfied with the hotel. It’s on the pricier side vs. accommodation but I understand that this is the norm in Abu Simbel. The rooms themselves were fine, especially for a quick overnight stop. The positive surprise was the food at dinner. We had fish from the lake, which was excellent, probably the best fish we had during our trip. Overall, it’s a great simple choice to stay in Abu Simbel overnight, which in itself is extremely rewarding as you are almost alone on the site.

This hotel is within walking distance to the ruins of Abu Simbel. It is a nice and clean hotel with wonderful staff. Although they speak little english, we were able to communicate all of our wishes. The restaurant has limited food but we had a chicken dinner and a beef dinner and they were both very good.

I'd definitely recommend staying overnight here. Most tours leave Aswan at 3-4am and rush everyone back within 60-90minutes. We decided to stay overnight. Tuya was the perfect place. It's within walking distance from Abu Simbel. I'd recommend going straight to the hotel and grab a coffee and relax. Then head to the Temple around 11-12 to avoid the crowd. Take your time and get great photos and memories. Of course there's a market/suq just before the entrance. Be prepared! We dined at the restaurant (they serve all day), typical food & coffee Their mugs are adorable and they'll sell you one, just ask. I'm a potter so I appreciate these pieces. We walked up the road just before sunset The few Locals we met were happy to see us and welcomed us. There's a couple of small shops if you want a snack. We just went on the bridge to watch the sunset and then retired for the night in our adorable room. It's a beautiful hotel. The type of place you find your inner peace after days of touring. The morning sun and birds singing when you wake up is very beautiful and calming. The rooms are quaint, beautiful with a dome brick roof with comfy beds and your own tiny washroom/shower. Clean, refreshing and mind calming! And of course Abu Simbel was amazing!
