Nile Valley Hotel Restaurant
Ranked #15 of 54 Hotels in Luxor
Reviewed October 24, 2010

I took a tour group of 8 with me to this wonderful hotel. I have stayed in Luxor many times and quite a few on the West bank. This was my first time at the Nile Valley and without doubt it is 'THE place to stay'.
Of the 8 travellers 5 had never been to Egypt before and I can honestly state that every single one of them had such an amazing experience they are coming back again. The party ranged in age from 30 - 63 and all could not praise the hotel enough.
The rooms were clean and quiet, the location is stunning. We had some lovely afternoons sitting in the pool drinking a beer after a hard day in the Valleys.
Breakfast was great and the food was so good that we often ate their in the evening.
Part of me did not want to write a review as I want to keep this 'secret' to myself.
Well done to all at the Nile Valley, you have gained another 8 fans.
Regards

What a gem! Amazingly clean, especially for Egypt. The restaurant has great views of the Nile, Luxor, and the ferries with the locals getting on and off - and let's not forget the food, that was good and priced right. We enjoyed the pool after our visits to the tourists sites... When crossed over to the East bank, I was going to take the ferries but I could always get water taxis for 5 pounds (they quote 10) for the three of us. I mark the hotel 5 stars because it's a great deal per what I read and experienced in Egypt. However, I was bit taken back because when I paid my last bill at the restaurant, they asked for tip for the whole stay and then again in the morning. Then the receptionist was trying to pressure me to give again by saying that the waiters said that I haven't given any yet. This isn't too surprising for Egypt but was for this hotel because it felt like an island from the craziness that is outside of it.

We have experienced Nile Valley as a small and cosy family hotel with an amazing view on Luxor and the Nile. The price-quality ratio is excellent, the hospitable and friendly staff turned it into a wonderful stay. The Nile Valley Hotel gives the experience being part of life on the Westbank and not isolated in luxury like many of the larger hotels. An absolute recommendation!

Stayed in the nile valley for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is prefectly located on the west bank so it is relaxing and away from the madness of the east bank. The hotel was lovely and comfortable with a fantastic roof top restaurant that served lovely food and had a great view. They had a brilliant outdoor area with a swimming pool and bar. The pool was a god send after a morning of site seeing in the heat.
The best thing about staying in this hotel was by far the organised trips. I had an amazing guide called Hassan (request him if you stay here) he was so nice and made the trips really interesting. This hotel is definitely worth a visit.

My friends and I love Egypt. We usually spend together some days there every year since 7 years ago. The first and second year we used to stay in big hotels on the East bank of the Nile, where all these kind of hotels are. Luckly, in the third year we found this charming local hotel, located on the West bank of Luxor, and from then until now, it has become our home in Luxor. The located is perfect to visit all the treasures of Egypt, because all the tombs and temples are in this side, except the temple of Luxor and the temple of Karnak. But indeed, to visit this temples you can take the local ferry, that it is very near to the hotel or a private boat to take you directly to both temples. It´s a lovely local hotel with a restaurant at the rooftop and spectacular views from there. You can have breakfast with one of the best views of the Nile and the Luxor Temple, and it´s a perfect place to see the wonderful Egyptian sunrise. Dinner by night with all the lights is just magic. The food is very tasty and you can eat whatever you want without any worries about get sick, because everything is fresh. The staff is very friendly and attentive at all times. The rooms are very clean, comfortable and have air conditioning. The swimming-pool is great. You can take a bath and at the same time have a drink from the pool bar. We are so comfortable, relaxed and safe with the proper treatment of the staff and especially the owners, that we repeat every year. If you are looking for a local hotel well located, with great views, tasty food, good treatment and relaxing, we recommend you Nile Valley Hotel. Cordial greetings to Hamada and Karin.

As a single female traveller i was a bit weary of going away (1st time) to egypt but determined to go and see the sights and sounds of luxor, and what a place it is. The hotel is on the west side of the nile and right next to it with a fantastic veiw from the clean tidy roof top resturant, good food great service, they dont really hastle you all the time and serve you with a smile. The Rooms are clean and A/C is welcome! , I was out and about all the time to the Valley of the Kings and Up and down the nile all day long, the location was spot on for catching a taxi (river or road) and the owner organized these trips which was very helpful and reliable. Nice people go there as well, i made friends with guests, staff, and Harmada and Karin the owners. I would recommend the Nile Valley Hotel as it fitted my budget and plans well AAA ++++

Beautiful, outstanding an addorabel
Our daughter, aged 4 years old, got very ill at the first night.
The owner Karin told this to the docter, in within 10 minuten the doctor was there! The receptionist got the medicines for us, right away.
The next morning we recieved a special breakfast for our family in our room. Extra fresh fruit, duices, special bread and so ever.
Because off the illness we didn't want to go to Aswan, The same evening, Nile Valley planned our trip to Aswan on another date, at the end of our vacation.
Our 10 days were fantasic. Next time Nile Valley can plan all of our excusions!
Simply perfect en carring.
