Antoinette and Tony have built a fantastic place for sightseeing and relaxing. Built on the west side of the river, it is an ideal place to take in sightseeing in the Theban necropolis before retiring in the garden for some refreshing mint tea. Antoinette and Tony are very knowledgeable in ancient Egyptian so have a few conversations with them!
Rooms will cost between 200 - 300 EGP per night depending on the size.
Easily accessible from main Luxor, it's a 1 Egyptian pound public ferry ride and 10 Egyptian pound taxi from the dock to the hotel. If the taxi drivers give you any hassle, be stern and aggressive with them (as in most areas of Egypt) and they will back off!
We ate all our meals here. 65- 75 Egyptian pounds for a full Egyptian flavoured meal including soups, salads, rice and tagines. Much better value than the restaurants in Luxor and much more tasty!
