    We stayed at El Mesala at the end of October 2012 for just 3 nights. I wish we could have stayed longer. Everyone at the hotel is friendly and professional and keen to ensure we all had as good a time as possible. The pool was wonderful. On our last night they really pushed the boat out and organised a birthday celebratory feast with live music. We enjoyed that on the roof overlooking the Nile, with dancing and amazing food. You couldn't get a better view in or position in Luxor. You never know quite what a hotel will be like when you first book but seriously this is the best value, best located and most friendly hotel in Luxor.

    Room Tip: As we had two large family rooms we were at the back of the hotel. If I were travelling in a smaller group I'd ask for the front rooms with balcony overlooking the Nile.

    We stayed here for 3 nights and found the whole hotel to be good, the rooms are nice, the roof top restaurant and bar was great with a good view over the Nile looking at the Luxor Temple.
    Easy access to the ferry to get across the Nile.
    But the best bit was the service, all their staff were great.

    My husband and I stayed at el Masala for 5 days earlier this month, and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a double ensuite room with a balcony overlooking the Nile, and everything was perfect. The staff is very friendly, the WiFi was strong, the bed was wonderfully comfy, there was lots of hot water (I love long hot showers), and the hotel was located in a quiet but central location mere yards from the ferry landing. And the food at the restaurant and the one next door (which sells beer, not all restaurants do) was excellent. Go! You won't regret it.

    Hotel El Mesala is located on the West Bank and only a short walk to ferry which crosses the Nile to the East bank. The hotel is perfectly situated and of you can get a front Nile view room then you have a prime location. We spent 6 nights there and found the pool to be welcome relief to the heat of the day especially after cycling out o the Valley of the Kings, Queens, Tombs of the Nobles and the myriad of other attractions on teh West Bank. The owner is a colourful character and is currently adding rooms to his property - so there was a bit of work being done to the relatively new hotel. The rooms are clean, but like many other places the furniture doesnt quite fit the rooms and the sheets dont fit the bed. We did have a TV and fridge (for our cold beer and water) in the room and the rate is very reasonable. It is nice and quiet on the west bank and we were blessed with a terrific view looking back over the Luxor Temple all lit up in the evening. Breakfast is the same every morning, without variation so maybe something for them to consider changing slightly especially if you are there for several days. We only had a snack in the restaurant the 1st night but this was fairly average so we ate elsewhere on the other nights. There are several great little restaurants/cafes right on the banks of the Nile directly outside the hotel to your right along the water front. Nile View Restaurant was great as were the others.

    I would maybe like to see the hotel staff ( and friends) not occupying the reception area all day (and night) smoking, watching TV and using the internet. Maybe they should have an area and computer for the staff and manager to use.

    A great little place and it will only get better as they progress and also good value for money.

    This hotel has a great view. The owner is trustworthy and straight forward. The rooms are exceptionally clean. On the downside, the rooms are a little cramped and the restaurant is a little limited. Overall, we felt this hotel was a good value for the money and would stay here again.
