After staying in crazy Cairo for a few days, Luxor was a heavenly paradise, and the El Mesala Hotel was wonderful. The hotel itself is lovely to look at - brightly painted with different Egyptian-themed images, a pool out front, and a great view of the Nile. Its location (the West Bank) made sure that we were away from the... More

The hotel has a spectacular location, great rooms and service. Although on the West Bank, all the main needs are east bank, it is an easy ferry ride across the Nile. We ate dinner at their rooftop restaurant and the food was delicious. But you can't be in a hurray. BEWARE: the one thing that would cause me to not... More

We checked in for 1 night at El Mesala. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are needing an update, but it was clean and comfy. The restaurant on the roof terrace is amazing, great views over the nile and fantastic food, we were so impressed with lunch, so we had dinner and lunch the next day as well... More

Wanting to try something different to the large chain hotels we opted for this small family run hotel on the West Bank. Decor is simple Egyptian in style but very clean and comfortable. There was a fridge in the room so we could enjoy a cool drink on our balcony. The pool area is a great place to relax after... More

We spent two nights at El Mesala which wasn't nearly long enough. The hotel is located on the West bank of Luxor which is less chaotic than the East Bank and much more relaxed a place to be. As it practically overlooks the Nile the hotel is easy to find (more or less opposite where the public ferry drops you... More

We have just returned home from a 2 week vacation to Egypt. We spent 6 days staying at El Mesala in Luxor. This was the best experience I had the entire time I was in Egypt. First off this hotel is run by one family, so quality and feeling at home is their number one effort. Mohamed and Karim are... More

I spent 3 nights at El Mesala in March and loved every minute of it. My room (201) had a balcony overlooking the pool and the River Nile. Mohamed and Ahmad, the brothers who co-own the hotel, were extremely helpful and friendly. As I was celebrating a "significant" birthday, I asked them to arrange for a traditional Egyptian band and... More

The hotel El Mesala is a modest sized family run establishment, but in terms of location and personal customer service, it is second to none. Situated on the West Bank and overlooking the Nile, we woke up every day at dawn to a panoramic view and watched from our front room balcony or the dining hall on the terrace, the... More

This is the place to stay in Luxor! El Mesala i's on the quiet west bank with a postcard perfect view of the Nile and Luxor Temple. Rooms 301 and 302 have the best views, but even if you can't get one of these rooms you can get an incredible view from the upstairs dining room. To get to the... More
