I was very pleased with my choice of Nile Valley Hotel. It's on the quieter West Bank, convenient to Valley of the Kings, Nobles Tombs, etc. and equally convenient to the busier East Bank by a quick and enjoyable ferry ride across the Nile. I stayed 6 nights and very much enjoyed my stay.
The situation was a little sad for the hotel, due to the decline in tourism in Egypt (for no good reason, in my experience here). In spite of only a few rooms being occupied in the hotel, they seemed to go all out with pool maintenance (weather a bit cool for swimming anyway), full menu available at the restaurant, etc. They work very hard for their customers.
There were perhaps a few minor glitches that could bring my rating down to 4 and a half, but considering the price and the quality, I have to give this hotel 5 stars.
