El Nakhil Hotel is situated on the West Bank of the Nile, down a quiet alley, away from the traffic, dust and noise of the city of Luxor directly across the river. It is conveniently located for visiting Queen Hapshepsut's Temple, Valley of the Kings, Dar El Medina, Colossi of Memnon, Ramesseum and Habu Medinet. It is a 5 minute boat ride across the river to Luxor and access to Luxor Temple and Karnak. (Boat ride costs 1EL.) The hotel is arranged around a leafy courtyard which fills with birdsong at dawn and dusk. A large roof terrace provides al fresco dining from 7am to 10.30pm. The kitchen is excellent. The downstairs rooms open onto the courtyard. The upstairs rooms have balconies overlooking it. We enjoyed sitting out on ours to watch the sun go down. It was our first time in Egypt and the owners, Birgit and Salah, were very helpful making recommendations. The staff at El Nakhil were exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our needs, providing breakfast to order at 6am so that we could get an early start on sightseeing. I couldn't recommend El Nakhil more highly.
