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".... More

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... More

We have been traveling for four months and have stayed in many places. El Mesala was above and beyond our best experience in Egypt, and possibly throughout our travels. The staff are wonderful, the food in the restaurant is the best we had in Egypt, and the view of Luxor temple and the Nile can't be beat. We felt so... More

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.

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
