We were picked up as promised at the airport even though our flight had been delayed. This boutique hotel is located on a quiet back street, which is great because of the noise on busy Egyptian streets. Our suite was great and perfect for traveling with our two kids. Ahmed and Amr were the staff during our stay and they... More

Mara House is exactly what we look for when travelling - a small boutique hotel that caters for guests tired of large hotels and indifferent service who want discreet, professional care from a team who know exactly what they're doing. It's the small things that count, right? Bedrooms are huge, the bed itself heaven; towels were plentiful, the water hot... More

We were treated like royalty! Our "room" was a multi-room suite with incredible decorations. Wonderful ambiance, not just a hotel room, but an experience. The hotel is located on a small back street, you get to experience Egypt away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist. quite and safe neighborhood. Staff on call 24/7, breakfast provided, Supper was extra,... More

Kind and thoughtful owner and staff gave excellent local information and organized great tours for me. The interior of the hotel was lovely and comfortable on the inside. I didn't like the location--small street with a tall building facing the hotel, few windows, no view. Still, it's a great place to stay if you want personalized service and very helpful... More

We really enjoyed the hotel. The staff are really accomodating. We came back from late night trip and asked if there is anything to eat. We were told that they don't have much food left but will see what they can do. What we got delivered to our room in 30 minutes is nothing short of a five course meal.... More

For sophisticated travelers who are looking for a unique and exclusive visit to Luxor, this is the perfect place to stay. From the prompt and friendly emails with Mara who arranged everything, to Amr and Ahmed who looked after the two of us in person and were so attentive and kind. It was a seamless and enjoyable visit to Egypt.... More

All of Mara's staff are hand picked to be caring and attentive to the smallest detail for personal service. From the driver waiting for you at the airport to Ahmed at breakfast or a special run to the Germans for incredible ice cream I had a blast! Thank you Mara!

Room was large -- really a suite, with large bedroom + sitting room with couch and stocked mini-fridge. Very clean, beautifully decorated, even smelled nice. The two fellows on staff were excellent -- friendly, helpful, and always around if you needed them. Breakfast was good, with eggs, fruit, yogurt, and bread, and served at whatever time I asked for it.... More

Fantastic stay. Mara coordinated tours for us each day and Ahmed would be waiting at the door for us each evening. The team at the guest house was very attentive - actively asking if they could get us anything or do anything for us. One evening we were out a little longer that Ahmed expected and he called our carriage... More
