Abu Simbel hotels
Abu Simbel is a popular holiday resort that enjoys a wonderful location. It yields to none of its Red Sea counterparts in beauty and elegance; still, one must admit that the resort is primarily popular due to its closeness to the awe-inspiring, ancient Pharaoh’s temples. Even though guests will surely be more than satisfied by the on site recreational and entertaining facilities that the hotels of Abu Simbel provide, it is strongly recommended that you find time for the truly interesting and inspiring excursions available.
The resort town of Abu Simbel can be reached by plane from Cairo or Aswan, or by bus from Aswan. Unfortunately, foreigners are not allowed to travel to Abu Simbel by car. It is an equally perfect holiday destination for those who come here to relax and have fun, as well as for those who wish to explore its ancient sights and monuments.
