We spent one night at this lodge and it was such a lovely experience---everything about the place is artistic and beautiful and restful---from the rooms to the gardens to the terrace. The owner, Fikry el Kashef and his son, Hasan, made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious too. Abu Simbel is a small town in rural Egypt and--outside...

We stayed one night in this lodge and it was a wonderfull experience! From the 5 hotels we visited in Egypt during our trip, this is our number one! With it's large, clean & comfortable room, authentic architecture and quiet atmosphere this lodge easily outranks in our opinion a 5 star beachresort at the Red Sea. Great local kitchen too....

The guesthouse is Well decorated, the owner and staff are very welcoming and the food is very good. The rooms are very dark (real Nubian style), bathroom a little dated but there is strong hot water and A-C in the room. Beds are firm, which we like.

The family who built and run this eco-lodge are dedicated to sharing traditional Nubian culture and a sustainable lifestyle less than 2 km of the best-preserved temples in Egypt. The founder and his wife lived in Switzerland for years. She's a great cook. They returned to their native home with a vision of sharing Nubian history and architecture with tourists....

Stayed there for 1 night with the family. Very good nubian food, and extremely friendly atmosfere. They will do everything to make you comfortable. Accomodation is simple, but clean. Don't expect big luxury, but for sure I would return.

This is a great family run Lodge. Staying here allows you to see the Light and Sound show at Abu Simbel and in its own right is a lovely place to stay. You can walk to Abu Simbel in 25 minutes or get a taxi or tuk tuk. The rooms are lovely and we had one with a small garden....

We stayed for two nights at Eskaleh at the end of our Egypt holiday. We could not have asked for a nicer end to our trip, we loved it!
