The Nile Valley and Luxor Hotels

New Pola Hotel


  • Quite modern facilities for the price
  • Secure rooms
  • Large enough that you can sometimes find a room if you arrive without a reservation


  • Just because a hotel includes breakfast doesn't mean you want to eat it in a grim, basement-like back room
  • Just because your room has a phone doesn't mean calls will be transferred to you

Fodor's Review

On the southern hotel strip—though not on the river—this is a strong budget option, once you make it past the dim, dreary lobby and disorganized reception desk. Rooms are furnished with Egyptian-style beds (firm cotton mattresses atop a platform) with thick pillows; clean, bright bathrooms; and those at the front have good-size balconies, though street noise runs all night long, and views of the Nile are blocked by trees. Even more important for a hotel in this price

range: hefty deadbolt door locks and dependable air-conditioning. The best attraction at the New Pola is the roof pool with its wooden sundeck offering views out over the Nile.
