“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We had a great time here. Very good service and information, a clean, confortable room, we had a big room in the new part of the hotel. Great location, very kids friendly. The only minor point was that the pool was unheated, but even then... the fresh dive was great! In addition: the restarant of very good as well. No reason not to go here...

Room Tip: Bigger rooms in the new part. Great to do a cycling trip in the afternoon, even a bike woth kids cha...

We stayed six nights in two rooms. The rooms above the pool are larger and away from the road noise. Even though we stayed in winter time it is a sun trap around the pool so it is possible to swim but the water is cold. The hotel is so close to the river and it is easy to cross over for LE5 for four people. Things to try nearby- hiring a bike and biking down the side roads- LE 50 for four, eating falafels for LE2 each, eating at the African Garden restaurant near the bus station. One of the highlights was coming home to the towel sculptures each day. Friendly helpful staff and the owners are very keen that your stay is a success.

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.

Room Tip: Rooftop facing the Nile was very nice.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but asked Hamada, one of the owners, to organise our own trip to the Western Desert. We got a Toyota Land cruiser, 6 cylinder, and a driver called Rageb. We had such a great experience. Thoroughly recommend it.

We didn't stay here but we would love to. It is situated on the West Bank of Luxor and we have used this hotel for two years as a place to have coffee after the trip across from the East Bank; eat lunch after a morning of sight seeing; or visit for an evening meal away from the hussle and bussle of Luxor. The roof top is a really lovely location to sit and relax and take in the views across Luxor. It has always been quiet (shame because they really do deserve more business) when we have visited but the staff are always friendly and pleased to see you and absolutely no hassle. Prices are reasonal (lunch LE100 for 2 and dinner with a bottle of wine LE220) and the public Ferry makes it really easy to access at night for dinner.

I went to Luxor with my wife and her parents and stayed at the Nile Valley Hotel. I was treated just like one of the family. All the staff worked very hard to make sure our time was pleasant and comfortable. We arrived late and were immediately shown to our rooms and then taken to the roof-top restaurant for a welcome drink. They arranged our felucca trip and our transportation to the Valley of Kings and other sites. The price was very competitive. In fact their relationship with tours is very amicable and they will work hard to accommodate all your wishes and requirements. The west bank is much quieter and the position of the hotel very convenient for links to all sites. If you stay there ask to use Ahmed Mohamed Omar's motor boat Karim II as he speaks good English and will take you wherever you want to go. The rooms are clean and well maintained with good views wherever you stay (river view or pool view). The pool is a lifeline and very pleasant to spend time between tours. The food is wholesome with enough variety to suit all pallettes

I recently stayed at the hotel along with a friend for a week. I had previously eaten in the restaurant on a number of occasions but hadn't actually stayed there before but had seen the rooms so I already had expectations of how our stay would be and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were always friendly and welcoming and happy to serve you, whether it be at reception or the restaurant where the food is good. The roof top restaurant has stunning views across the NIle to the East Bank and most rooms also have a NIle view. We each had a room so were able to experience two different types, one behind reception, the other by the pool, both were air conditioned and also had fans, both were en-suite. They were cleaned every day as if by magic (we never saw who carried out this work!) and the towels changed every day. I did think the hotel might be noisy being located so close to the ferry. This was not the case as, with the the changes to the landscape in front of the hotel over the last few years very little traffic / people pass the front of the hotel now. The owners are in in the morning and the evening and when not there are always contactable by 'phone. All in all we had a great stay. Thanks to everyone for looking after us and hope to stay with you again soon - enshallah
