Can't imagine a better place to stay in the Luxor area. The garden alone makes it the ideal retreat from the demands of site-seeing. Within walking distance are some of the best Luxor has to offer: Medinat Habou temple, the Ramasseum, and Deir El Medinah, where the workers who built the Pharaonic tombs and temples lived and where you can...

Beautiful, romantic, more like staying with the family than a hotel, and the mudbrick architecture makes you feel great. My favourite hotel in Luxor (I've tried about seven) and worth the hassle of coming to Egypt. Unlike many that claim it, it really is ultra- tranquil, across from the ticket office, walking distance to several temples.

Great location for exploring the Wrst Bank on foot. Impressive hospitality. Delicious food. The accommodation looks a little primitive at first by western standards (mud brick rooms, fairly basic yet homely) - but the benefits are considerable (the mud brick normalises temperatures and moisture, making it an incredibly comfortable and healthy environment, even so near to the desert).

Disclaimer: if you only stay in high end hotels, this is not for you. There are lots of 5 star hotels in Luxor, you'll have no problem finding one. However, if you are looking for a unique and truly Egyptian experience then I strongly recommend Nour El Gourna hotel on the west bank of Luxor (actually in the town of... More

We stayed here after two weeks in the Chaos of Cairo. It was a delight to be somewhere so quiet, peaceful, and authentic. The hotel is right in between desert and farm land. The resulting quiet was heavenly! We called ahead and the manager was kind enough to send a taxi to pick us up at the train station. The... More

We stayed at Nour el-Gurna for one night while I was visiting Luxor. This place isn't like anything else I've ever stayed at. Made from mudbrick, it's a one of kind for the average tourist. The place itself couldn't be in a better location for checking out the Valley of the Kings and Al-Deir Al-Bahari Temple - which are on... More
