Lovely lovely place. So calm. Good food and plenty of it. Very friendly staff - we had a bit of an impromptu party one night with them singing and drumming. Fab. Nice and close to Abu Simbel too. Large comfortable rooms.

Spent one night here is early January. Highly recommended. Beautiful rooms in a lovely setting. We walked from here to Abu Simbel and back twice during our short stay: once during the day and once for the evening sound and light show. It can take between 20 to 30 minutes (depending on your pace) to walk one way to the... More

Great Food - you won't regret eating in. At Lunch you may find tour groups here but in the evenings it will be just guests and very quiet.

This eco-lodge displays all that is distinctive in Nubian style. Bright colors and decorations galore, the hotel is a feast for the eyes. The food served here is excellent, alcohol is also available. The rooms are cute and traditional. This is not 5-star style, but it's a fantastic place to stay that immerses you in the culture of the area.

Thank you again for the warm welcome and wonderful fish tajine. The cold beer on the late afternoon boat trip to view Abu Simbel was also wonderful. Highly recommended.

Stayed one night and it was lovely - Fekry, his son and the team made sure every aspect of the stay was lovely. It felt like being in a home. It's an easy 20 min walk from the temple complex, and is nice and quiet. The fish was easily the best dinner I have had in my travels around Egypt.... More

Lovely Nubian meal served on terrace of this Nubian Eco lodge. Brilliant fish tagine accompanied by bread, salad, tahine. Cold beer really went down well on this hot evening but wine was available too. Friendly, attentive service.

Very relaxed and rural atmosphere. Set inside an organic farm, this is a wonderful place to have a relaxing lunch and rest after a morning at Abu Simbel.

We loved staying at the Eskaleh! The rooms are gorgeous and comfortable. The food is wonderful and freshly prepared. The location, in the charming town is a medium walk from the Archaeological site or the extremely helpful staff can arrange an inexpensive taxi. The site of Abu Simbel is magnificent and is best seen in early morning, before the day... More
