I have stayed on the West Bank many times and have seen the old Sheik Ali many times but this was an updated, beautifully restored version of the old hotel. The old mud brick walls are thick and solid, the woven palm bed frames simple but comfortable, the furnishings basic but more than adequate and plenty of good hot water... More

The Marsam Hotel was THE discovery for us during our recent stay in Luxor. There is a very special atmosphere about the old house which was carefully and lovingly renovated. The rooms are very simple, but spotlessly clean, not all of them have a private bathroom. The staff are extremely friendly, so is the German owner. The food is delicious,... More

Again I was invited to join the Marsam for its Christmas meal. To say the least, the food was beautifully prepared and presented, the flavors were amazing as you would expect, as all produce is fresh and local with all vegetable produce coming from Marsam's own kitchen gardens. I the 2nd Jan there was a BBQ and Jazz evening with... More

I really like this hotel. I can never go to Luxor and not stay there,I love the exotic atmosphere the fact that it is reasonably cheap. It is a quiet place and mosquitoes were not a problem. The location was in the thick of things. Highly recommend!

I visit this Hotel often. I stop off at the Marsam Hotel on the way back from my adventures and exploring of the nearby mountains and sites. Sometimes I just go up there for the peace and quiet of the place. There has been many improvements that I think are worthy of mentioning here. First of all, the food is... More

A lovely couple runs this charming and environmentaly friendly hotel. The Marsam is located at walking distance to most monuments at Luxor's west bank and away from the hustle of the city. You can reach city center –if you ever need it–, in about twenty minutes by taxi (or bus) and boat to cross the river. During my nine days... More

This is a wonderful hotel and very suitable for Traveller’s, Artists and Egyptologists. It has rooms with air-conditioning and bathrooms and some that are more simply that are reflected in the price per night. It is said that it is the oldest Dig House on the West Bank, but there are a lots of stories about this. It most certainly... More
