One the recommendation of other TA members I booked this hotel for nine days in the middle of January 2013. I was a female, travelling alone to study. What a truly excellent choice of a place to stay!
I was a little wary of staying in a B&B on the West Bank, but I need not have worried. The hotel is fantastic value for money.
First impressions on arrival are good, the free pick up at the airport was a very welcoming experience that carried on throughout my stay. The exterior is lovely, well kept and quite pretty. There is a small pool, cleaned daily and it's a pleasant place to sunbathe.
The rooms were a great surprise! Bigger than I expected with plenty of storage, a good bathroom with a shower, and French windows opening out onto a balcony with views to die for!!
More importantly, the was a full sized fridge which was ideal for all the water and Fanta that I bought from the little mini market around the corner, alongside the Nile. There was a small TV and free wi fi. This really amused me, as all the more expensive hotels on the East Bank seem to charge a fortune for this service.
Breakfast was lovely and eaten in the roof top restaurant. The only better place to eat with a similar view was the Mena House in Cairo!
The views were of the Nile, a few yards away and of the Luxor Temple. I really couldn't have asked for more!
The staff were exceptionally professional and, more importantly, very kind. They made me feel so welcome that when I was leaving it was like leaving friends.
I will certainly be booking the El Mesala for my next trip and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to other travellers.
