Our guesthouse is located directly opposite the center of Aswan. The ferry to the West Bank departs from the Corniche (Nile boulevard), opposite the street to the railway station and opposite the Tombs of the Nobles on the West bank.
Look for the sign "Alexander the Great" (cruise boat landing). On the left you find the stairs to the local ferry to the West bank. (ask for the ferry to Gharb (=West) Aswan, or to the Tombs of the Nobles).
The ferry about costs 2 Egp each and brings you in less than 10 min. to the other side.
Walk to the asphalt road and from there to the right, where you find our guesthouse in the middle of the first row of houses (large and painted blue, with large trees around the garden).
