We had driven down from Aswan to visit Abu Simbel. This is a beautifully decorated, laid out small hotel full of atmosphere run by a Nubian family. We met father and son, who run it. CUTE rooms, quiet, well decorated. Very scenic location. The food was great....;both dinner and breakfast. Our dinner was included in the stay since there is not much right around the hotel.

Stayed one night at Eskaleh. There are very limited lodging options in Abu Smibel, Eskaleh is one of the better one. It's nothing fancy, but the host is attentive and rooms are comfortable. It's on the rustic side, but it's water front location and its quietness is it's drawn. It's a short ride from Abu Simbel temples. Both dinner and breakfast were good. Rooms were clean. We also arranged boat ride with the host on Lake Nassar and it was a very joyful excursion.

This was a fantastic place to stay. I highly advise staying in AS for a couple nights if you can. The rooms were nice with great mosquito nets. Nice music at night and the staff, family? were friendly.. Although I think we could have been the only ones there. But I really enjoyed my time here and I was lucky enough to be able to get up at four and walk to the temple and be the FIRST person to see it that day, before the busses showed up. The little town has a few local places where you can get a bit of food, but it seems there are hardly any tourists that actually stay here, which is good and bad for all sorts of reasons I won't go into. If you don't need to be waited on hand and foot or need to be entertained, you should stay here and soak up the vibe. It really is fantastic.

We stayed at Eskaleh one night only after our visit to Abu Simbel and before our flight back in the morning, and all I can say is that I wish I could have stayed more. The place is the best value for money in Abu Simbel. The house is built in pure Nubian style with local materials and beautifully decorated with Nubian traditional objects. The whole atmosphere is just magic. There’s a beautiful view on the lake, the place is peaceful and the people are kind and welcoming. We were given a beautiful suite with two séparé rooms and a little terrace and it was just magnificent. In the evening we had a simple but delicious dinner with Nubian dishes and beautiful Nubian music to accompany. We met Hasan who was really nice and also Mr Fikry, the owner of the place. He told us in about the story of the Nubian people and how he wanted to build this place to pursue and share the traditions. It was both moving and enlightening. I would definitely love to go back there!

I was looking for a hotel to stay one night at in Abu Simbel and the Eskaleh Nubian Ecolodge served that purpose for a one night stay. The room was basic, but the air conditioning worked well. Right next door is another similar type hotel with a restaurant. My friend and I did have dinner at the Eskaleh Lodge, but I can't remember what we had, as it didn't leave an impression one way or another. Breakfast was about the same, Other than a very old man who worked as a waiter, the rest of the staff seemed somewhat indifferent. Would I stay there again? It's doubtful as I don't see myself going to Abu Simbel again, but the hotel served it's purpose and was a lot cheaper than the Seti Lodge.

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.
