It was a pleasure staying at Flower of Light during our 4 days/5 nights in Luxor. It's a wonderful family-run hotel that has gorgeous dome rooms with huge bathrooms, a lovely pool surrounding by a beautiful garden and a fantastic cook. This was our first time in Luxor, so we did a lot of exhausting sightseeing. Coming back to Flower of Light each day was a the perfect was to rejuevenate ourselves and regain our energy. The location is unusual, out near the Valley of the Kings. You have to take a taxi to get to the river and the ferry to the East bank, however it was always easy, they just called us a taxi to pick us up right out front. I preferred being away from the town anyway because people constantly hassle you there. West Bank sights are close to the hotel which was very convenient. Antoinette and Donnie were friendly and attentive hosts who had lots of great advice for sightseeing around Luxor and even for visiting Abydos and the Pyramids. They really went out of their way to help us have the best possible experience in Luxor and for the rest of our time in Egypt. I can't wait to return!
