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

What better than to enjoy the lovely view on the wheat and sugarcane fields while sipping Turkish coffee and reading a book on the tranquil patio. This place was recommended to me by my Egyptian friends. We enjoyed our much too short stay, and will be back! The service is excellent. The food is great. You certainly don't need aircon... More

I didn't stay at the Marsam but me and my friends came here for lunch twice. It is blissfully quiet and tranquil. An excellent place to unwind after a morning of hassle at the Valley of the Kings. The seating area in the garden looks out to the green fields and it really is an oasis in an otherwise hectic... More

What this hotel lacks in 5 star luxury it gains in 5 star service. The staff look after you from start to finish and can not do enough to help. Meals are very good and rooms very clean. Natasha is a brilliant lady who runs the hotel, I really enjoyed my stay and would fully recommend it to people who... More

This hotel is as much a part of historical Luxor as the tombs, temples and hieroglyphs. It was built while Tutankhamen's tomb was being excavated and was the original Chicago House. Later it became a centre for artists. Today it attracts Egyptologists, international writers and artists of all kinds. It is of mudbrick construction so anyone with an interest in... More
