The position of the hotel near the Nile ferry to the East Bank makes it perfect for sightseeing on your own. Clean, spacious room. Comfy beds. Big fridge. Decent egyptian-style breakfast (better than in other hotels of the same price range). Decent WiFi connection in the room. Very helpful (but not pushy!) owner has organized our pick up at Hurghada...

We stayed here twice, before going to Aswan and then on the way back, and each time we couldn't fault this hotel. We had a great view of the Nile, nice clean rooms, and the food couldn't have been better. However, it was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff that really was outstanding. No hassling, no attempt to sell...

We stayed there only for 4 nights and it was the perfect place to be in Luxor. Splendid view over the Nile, amazing sunset, tastefully food and attentive manager. He arranged for us all trips perfectly. Of course we will be back in this little jewel

This was one of the best hotels of our Egypt trip. It is located on Luxor's quieter west bank, just a short walk from the ferry to the busier East bank. It was very easy and cheap to take either the national ferry or one the small private boats back and forth for 2LE. One night we were running late...

Favorite hotel in Egypt! Stay here for real Egyptian hospitality at a family run place- we were treated royally, upgraded to a Nile view room for free, and were even invited into Kareem's home for a visit. (Kareem, the co-owner, is really awesome BTW, we had so much fun chatting with him. The cook is awesome, too). The pool is...

A excellent value for money choice. Spectacular Nile view (opposite Luxor Temple), good rooms and a friendly & helpful staff. A nice rooftop restaurant, swimming pool. A Few meters walking distance from ferry. My 3rd stay here, hardly recommended !!! I will come back again, Luxor first choice.

Have stayed at some of the bigger hotels on the East Bank, but decided to try this Little budget hotel, just a small walk from the ferry on the West Bank. The room I had had a lovely view overlooking the Nile with a good sized balcony. Have to say the air conditioning was superb and kept me nice and...

Stayed two weeks in November and can only emphasize, as with other reviews, just how friendly and helpful all the staff are. Yes, you will hear the Muezzens calling at 5.am but if staying on the East Bank you will suffer this AND more traffic noise than here. Also reduced amount of "hassle" than with the prolific East Bank "touts"....

This summer I stayed at El Mesala for a few nights. I chose the hotel in part because of its location and the convenience of a restaurant at the hotel. It turned out to be a great location with a great view of the Nile, especially from the rooftop restaurant. Moreover, the staff were very hospitable. Unfortunately, one of the...
