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 the East Bank, it tends to be less expensive, and the people on the West Bank are hospitable and friendly. Also it tends to have terrific views of the East Bank (Luxor temple and city skyline)
The El Masala Hotel is relatively new (3 years old). Since it is newly built everything is beautiful. The rooms (many of which have Nile views) are clean, tile floors, different kinds of bathrooms ensuite, different kinds of beds - two twins, doubles and queens). Plenty of blankets, soft pillows. We chose a large bed, with Nile View and we loved it. The staff are very attentive, and responsive to your every need. The rooms are cleaned well every day. They have a rooftop restaurant for complimentary breakfast in the morning, and if you tell them the day before they can provide whatever you want, including full Egyptian breakfast (Fuul, egyptian flatbread, feta cheese, omelet - or anything else you want to add) They provide full travel assistance for arranging tours, vehicles, etc.
They have a nice pool, if you are visiting when it is hot. (it wasn't while we were there in March, in fact it rained alot and even had hail this year)
The people on the West Bank are like a small village, friendly, open and welcoming.
