Lovely Luxor hotel and restaurant on the West Bank, with fabulous views overlooking the River Nile. The perfect base for exploring all what Luxor has to offer. Our guests enjoy the peacefulness of the West Bank with easy access to the East bank. El Mesala Hotel is only few minutes away from the ferry and 1 min to motorboats to the city center, Luxor Temple, Karnak Temple. Close to the fascinating historic sites such as Valley of the Kings, Rameseum, Medinet Habu and others. Most rooms overlooking the Nile, some facing the Theban Hills. Spacious rooms, restaurant, swimming pool.

The facilities are quite good, the service very friendly and the food very good. We are especially grateful to Rayaan who not only hosted us but went above and beyond in helping us coordinate our entire trip to southern Egypt. And the hotel has an excellent view of the Nile River.

This is a family business, with Mohammed's son Osama now running it. Situated on the quiet west bank of the river, 200 metres from the water and the boat ramp which can take you across to Luxor City where all the noise and chaos is. The view from the room and balcony is probably one of the best and most intimate views of the Nile in all of Luxor. And real Egypt is in the nearby streets. The rooftop restaurant is wonderful with that same mesmerising view of the river, and Luxor City and the Luxor Temple staring right at you. The food is nothing to get excited about, but there is a great little restaurant right next door ( The Sunflower) and others nearby which I didn't try. Thanks to Osama, Mahmud, Mansour and the the whole super friendly team for making my 8 night stay so special. And if you want the best one-on-one guide for the tombs, Osama lined up Ahmed who had an infectious enthusiasm for the tombs, the Pharoahs, and the history. And he led me to a stunning local restaurant in the fields for a memorable lunch.

Nice well maintained little pool that is in the shade except in the early morning. Very nice roof deck for meals. Wi-Fi strength was medium. They do not serve alcohol. Nice staff, good hospitality. River view rooms have a very nice view, though balconies are in the Sun for most of the day. Very well located next to the boats and ferry that goes to the east bank. Good strength air conditioning and rooms have mini fridges. Good value for money.

El Melsala was a breath of fresh air after a trip to Cairo. Had an amazing view and an even more amazing staff, which is hard to come by in Egypt. No more hassling for your money here. Islam personally took care of us made sure we we were getting good deals and no shady characters. If you find yourself here he is the man to make your stay as easy and as enjoyable as possible. Can’t thank the staff here enough for there hospitality.

Booked 3 nights at El Mesala to visit Luxor. Very nice hotel at the quieter westbank of the Nile. Nice little pool, comfy rooms and very nice rooftop terrace for breakfast, afternoon chill and very tasty dinner with view on the Nile. We contacted Ahmed of the hotel for some tours and he arranged a super sunset feluca boat tour with BBQ with fish (a la mama) and chicken!! Highly recommendable!!

We stayed here during our stay in Luxor and were really happy. The staff were really helpful and friendly and helped us arrange a couple of excellent day trips to the surrounding attractions which I thought were extremely good value (much better than Cairo equivalents) The roof terrace has a wonderful view over the Nile and isa lovely place to relax and watch the sunset. Breakfast was great, fresh and abundant and they were very accomodating with all the little bits and pieces that we needed while we were there. I was with my family of five and had an apartment which was perfect for what we needed, its of space and a nice small balcony to relax in in the evening once the kids were asleep. Recommend for sure.
