We are enjoying a wonderful stay at the El Mesala. I've visited all over Egypt many times and this is by far the best hotel I've stayed in. The staff are delightful, providing excellent service with joyful smiles. The rooms are wonderfully appointed, with balconies overlooking the Nile River and lovely Luxor Temple on the east bank. The food is... More

On the quieter West Bank, an easy ferry or motor boat ride across, clean and spacious rooms with large balcony overlooking the Nile and a roof top restaurant serving beer - perfect after seeing the sights. Run by one laid-back brother and another rather 'in your face' but together a great combo!

We spent 11 nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it. The view of the Nile is fabulous from the balcony as well as from the terrace- peaceful, quiet setting. The breakfast is good, as well we had dinner here 3 nights and it was delicious. The owners are doing a great job in trying to please everyone. We... More

What a fantastic place to stay. We had two rooms with balcony views and was a great base for the area. Food was excellent and the staff were all superb. I even had a private lesson with chef on how to make tahina. Quiet, nice facilities, great friendly hosts, excellent food and reasonably priced. Loved it!

Exceptional value, we had a twin room with private bathroom, airport collection, a good breakfast every day, a spacious balcony with a view to Luxor Temple and all at hostel prices! The service is personal and extremely friendly and all our requests were fulfilled without any delay or fuss. The pool is on the small side, but perfectly adequate, there... More

Superbly located in the West Bank with great views of the Nile and the Luxor temple. Great base to explore sights in the west as well as the east bank while cutting down on a lot of the east bank based tourist hassles. Self contained hotel with great food, friendly staff and a small pool. The view from the Nile... More

We have visited Luxor 8 times and this is the first time we have found El Masala Hotel! We went because in all the hundreds of hotels in Luxor rated on Booking.com, this one is #4 and on the West Bank. We prefer to stay on the West Bank for many reasons. It is laid back and less touristy than... More
