We stayed at El Nakhil for a week and were really impressed with what it had to offer. The Hotel was exceptionally clean and restful with very friendly staff and a lovely restaurant. We were in room 14 with a lovely balcony overlooking the garden. The pet tortoises were fun to watch and the shower was powerful and hot when washing off the dust. It was a great place to come back to after tramping around the antiquities all day and I unreservedly recommend it and the restaurant.

I am finally getting around to writing this review... so sorry it took me this long - we were there for 5 nights at the end of November. The hotel is lovely, nicer than we expected from the pictures. Location, on the West bank (same side as the Valley of the Kings, Queens, Hatshepsut temple, ecc.) is perfect especially if you like peace and quiet: a block or so down a quiet road but very close to the ferry terminal. Our room (15) was nice and very quiet facing the inner garden with a small private patio with table and chairs. We very much enjoyed relaxing there at the end of the day. There is a very good rooftop restaurant where we ate wonderful breakfasts and delicious dinners. They also serve drinks, beer and wine. The whole place is neat, well organized and well kept but the best feature is the helpful, friendly staff. Everyone, from the owner (who is an interesting, kind and charming man, and helped us with all sorts of planning) on down was eager to make our stay enjoyable. We were sad to leave! A couple of practical tips: The ferry to the East bank (Karnak, Luxor temple, museum) is a very short walk (just a few minutes), runs often and is super cheap. After having a driver take us to the farthest sights on the W bank, we enjoyed renting bicycles to tour the closer sites. The owner can arrange a bike for you or there is a dependable shop at the corner. The room does not have a safe, but after struggling with various safes in other hotels this didn't seem to be a problem (you can leave valuables with the front desk). There is an ATM nearby (about half way to the ferry), it doesn't allow big withdrawals but it's very convenient (some of the fees for the tombs are pretty steep so get plenty of cash),

After a crazy overnight flight from Cairo to Luxor, El Nakhil was a true oasis in a desert for our tired group of travelers. Thankfully, it was an easy 30 minutes from the airport and a short drive to Valley of the Kings and many of the other sights we went to see. When we arrived, we were greeted by a balmy patio and a warm welcome from the friendly owner, Salah. Our rooms opened out into a patio of lush palms and sun. The beds were clean and comfortable, shower was hot, and the room easily accommodated our group of three women. My personal favorite was the upstairs patio — with a gorgeous overview of the surrounding palms and colorful storefronts, this proved to be the perfect place for breakfast, reading, and evening tea. I highly recommend staying at El Nakhil (which means “the palms” in Arabic!)

El Nakhil is a clean, quiet and well-kept hotel a short walk from the ferry on the West side of the Nile in Luxor. The AC and WI-FI worked well. The bathroom was clean,modern and there was plenty of hot water. We spent most of our time on the East Side, which meant taking the ferry back and forth once or twice a day, but it was pleasant and we enjoyed observing the local scene. There are hardly any tourist touts on the West Side as opposed to the East where all the cruise ships dock. I had considered staying at El Fayouz, next door to El Nakhil, but I’m glad I chose El Nakhil and would do so again. One suggestion is for the owners offer to send someone from their staff to the train station to meet their guests, and guide them onto the ferry and then to the hotel. The directions we were given were confusing and not at all practical for anyone arriving at night, even with just a carry-on bag. The walk from the ferry dock to the hotel is not long, but the road is a dirt road and partly uphill, not practical for walking with a rolling suitcase. The owner might suggest guests take a Tuk-Tuk for a cost of 30 L or so. We booked a ride with a private car and driver to Aswan with El Nakhil, and the trip worked out perfectly. The driver was courterios and careful, and helped us get to our accommdations once we arrived in Aswan. I highly recommend the triip,

This charming hotel provides spacious rooms but it is the reception by the hotel owner and his staff that really stands out. They go to great lengths to make you feel at home. The food is delicious as well. A perfect place to stay on the West Bank of Luxor.
