Fantastic place to stay in Abu Simbel. Really worthy to stay overnight as you get to see the town in the evening without the crowds. This place is a Nubian museums in itself and the attention and care of all staff is top. We really will come back if we ever have the chance

Just back from staying at this amazing place. We only stayed for 1 night so we could see the Abu Simbel temple but it was worth it. We were a family of 4 and had 2 huge rooms. A lovely quiet and relaxing place to stay, the owner and staff were all very friendly and helpful. Lovely food too, we didn't want much to eat so they made us some delicious salads for lunch. The cat Lulu (3 months old) is very cute and friendly. We took a sunset cruise on Lake Nasser and then got up early the next day to be one of the first tourists into Abu Simbel Temple, hence beating the crowds and a cooler time to visit.

We were only booked for one night here which was such a pity as I loved it. It's very simple with no hint of plastic or bling, unlike our hotel in Cairo. Our room was quite small but perfectly adequate and very clean. We ate on the terrace in the evening and the food was simple but well cooked and fresh. I recommend the fish. The staff were friendly and there was a relaxed, informal atmosphere. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the centre of town and very close to the temples. With an extra day, we could have explored more and just sat on the terrace, looking out over the lake.

As most people will do, just one night spent here in order to visit the Abu Simbel temples. Lovely courteous welcome, with room being large and rustic, but spick-and-span clean. Good hot water and pressure in the shower was very welcome! High quality of English language, and very easy to use their boat trip back from the temples after my afternoon visit. Food and drinks were perfectly fine. Crystal clear itemised bill at the end. All in all, my favourite stay during my 2-week Egyptian trip. Thanks to the Eskaleh team. :-)

The Eskaleh Nubian Ecolodge was the ideal choice for an overnight stay in Abu Simbel. It has a very pleasant setting on Lake Nasser and a 2 km walk to Abu Simbel. Our room #4 was rustic with a rough stone floor and comfortable twin beds with mosquito netting. The plumbing fixtures could use updating, but the hot water shower was actually better than high-end hotels we had stayed at in Luxor and Cairo. There was a tiny patio in back, probably suited to smokers. The food served at the hotel was very good, especially the lentil soup and the fresh fish. We enjoyed the outside bar in the evening and talked at length with "Hody", who ran the boat which takes tourists on the lake. The entire staff was very friendly. Overnight accommodations are limited in Abu Simbel but I believe the Eskaleh is your best choice.

Everything in this hotel was just perfect: our room was really big (45 m²), the view on the lake awesome and the food so delicious. The highlight was definitely the kindness of all the staff and the owner. In our room was a big bed, a bathroom, a fridge, a cabinet, and the bed had 2 mosquito nets. The staff helped us also to get a taxi to the temple in the morning and to get the local bus back to Aswan. We have enjoyed our stay in Abu Simbel a lot, because of this peaceful place and the great staff. Even though we didnt stay long, we were quite sad to leave that hotel as the people are very friendly. We have found the hotel in a guide book and were happy to stay there. If you go to Abu Simbel, this place is highly recommended.

Once again, I made a last minute decision to book a hotel in Abu Simbel, to see the Temples and town. I had no idea what I was booking, I just booked. Upon my arrival,i was greeted by very friendly smiley staff & a rugged outdoor cat. My breath was taken away more and more as I passed through the hotel to my room! This place is great! Vaulted ceilings beautifully painted traditional mud walls, dome ceiling dining area, & the rooms have the same feel & are very big. I ordered local perch for dinner & it couldn't have tasted better! I grew up by the sea, I know fresh fish & this was fresh caught and the local spices were perfectly balanced so I could enjoy the spices without losing the fresh taste of the fish itself. Great job chef! I am also generally, wish you washy about Tahini but their Tahini was good to the last swipe of home made bread! Staff are great, speak good English, friendly & and obviously intelligent. And the rugged cat.... He is super sweet and loves attention, doesn't seem to be a table beggar just likes to be scratched. Give him a few seconds of your time and you will fall in love with his sweet rough and rugged nature. 5 thumbs up for this place, a must stay when in Abu Simbel (had to borrow a few thumbs from friends 😉). Oh yeah, and they are right on the edge of the Lake...no crocs and an amazing scenery for: morning coffee, breakfast, or lunch. 2 minute walk from bus station and 11 minute walk to Abu Simbel temples! Local Tuk yuks are cheap and fun, about 25 EP to temples. Happy I chose them. Brian PS, If you want to take pictures with anything other than your phone inside the RAMSES 2 temple, make sure you buy your camera pass before heading to the temples.

I was lucky to choose this nubian ecolodge for my 2 nights stay in Abu Simbel ..I loved the cozy warm atmosphere of the lodge and every little detail of the earthy colors and natural material were used all over. I can call a Place with an authentic touch .. my room was clean, spacious and comfortable . service was outstanding, Staff and owners are very friendly and helpful .. the location of the lodge is super as it's overlooking the lake with so relaxing view .. Abu simbel temple is just 20 min. walking distance from the lodge.. Don't miss the light & Sound show.. if you are heading to Abu simbel so I recommend to stay over and enjoy the atmosphere .. Thank you I would definitely go back :)

That was our third time at the Eskaleh Nubian Ecolodge. The place is perfectly located to visit Abu Simbel temples. They can take you there by boat to see the sun rise from lake Nasser at around 6 am, you do the visit when the temples open then you go back and the breakfast is waiting for you. This time, we spent a fantastic 2021 new year’s eve with another couple, the staff and a few of their friends, with an improvised Nubian musical evening. The rest of the time, we enjoyed the great food, relaxing views over the lake and company of friendly and warm staff. The place has a real spirit and is part of the Abu Simbel Nubian experience for those who want to run away from large hotels and spend time in an authentic place. We love it and will come back!
