We just got back from a two-week trip to Egypt, with our first four nights at the Nile Valley Hotel. We booked it based on good reviews in the Lonely Planet and on Tripadvisor, and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is about a 3 minute walk from the ferry landing at Al Gezira, making it very easy to get into Luxor town to see the sights. It's also perfect for visiting the West Bank sites, and we either took a taxi arranged through the hotel, or picked up a taxi or mini bus from the main road, to the ticket office.
The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast on the roof terrace was pleasant and the staff were attentive. The manager, Hamada, was very kind and keen to make sure that we had all we needed. He arranged a taxi to take us to Aswan on our last day, stopping off at a couple of sights, with a driver that we had used before.
The swimming pool is really lovely, and a great bonus for a small hotel like this.
All in all, this was a great choice for us, as the staff seemed used to helping independent travellers make their own arrangements. It was great value as well. Thanks a really good stay.
