We have stayed at this hotel three times, well my partner 4 times and we have never been disappointed, our review is long overdue. The location is good, away from the hassle, and the accommodation very nice, with tasteful decor and nice and clean. The hosts are wonderful, and we wish them all the best in what must be a... More

This is my second visit to El-Nakhil. The place has not changed much - the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff & management attentive and friendly. However the breakfast could be improved with an offering of fresh fruit.

I found this place one of the best to stay in the whole of Egypt. I was warmly welcomed with a refreshing drink and the staff were very friendly and helpful, even going out of their way to take me to a doctor. The food was excellent and was served on their rooftop dining area which had stunning views of... More

We loved El Nakhil for its tranquillity, West bank location, spacious room with a balcony overlooking a garden filled with sparrows and doves, and the best shower we had in Egypt. Contending with the mosquitoes was a problem (too bad no mosquito netting), but the hard beds seem to be standard for Egypt. Birgit was so nice, as were all... More

A haven of tranquillity marred only by the access road (mud track). Lovely rooftop restaurant with stunning views of the Nile and Luxor Temple on the other side. Freshly cooked traditional food, with occasional buffet lunches for passing groups in which we were invited to share (4 courses for LE45 (about a fiver!) Birgit and Salah (the German/Egyptian owners)could not... More

We stayed at the El Nakhil as it was recommended to us. Before we arrived I must have sent dozens of emails to Birgit, the owner, asking hundreds of questions but she answered every one of them with the utmost patience! Birgit and her husband Salah run the hotel and between them they can organise anything for you. They organised... More

was worried about taking my two teenaged daughters to Luxor for a week (my minimum stay in this place). How will they cope with a quiet (so I thought) west bank stay on their first trip to Egypt? Well, we did escape most of the hubbub of this active tourist resort. We even managed to get a few quiet visits... More

This Hotel has so much potential and with a few little added touches It would have scored higher. The Good: The Hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful.
