“Nicely decorated - a bit for what they offer”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I stayed there for 2 nights. Here are some plusses and minusses:

Plusses:

The b and b. Is very nicely decorated and there is a very beautiful garden.
It is very clean
It is situated in a residential area where you see the life of the 'ordinary man'

Minusses:

There was no hot water in the shower and day 2 hour toilet did not work
The person greeting us at arrival (Mohammed) was very keen ón appearing like a person not just wanting to earn money - but hé sold us an expensive tour with guide - for a lightshow (where guide was not needed) and the Luxor museum - where hé did not dó anything. At the tempel of Luxor hé spoke - but his English was so bad that we wish we would not have booked it.
Breakfast is dry bread and 2 small slices os cheese. Not at all enough for an 'adult man' :-)

All in all.... Go there for the cute rooms, hood and the nice garden. Expect to pay European b and b price for service that does not correspond with the price. (and bring some snacks so you wont be hungry after breakfast) :-)

Greetings from Denmark:-)

Located in a quiet village sector in Luxor this escape is unique and memorable.
The walk through the village takes you through real Egypt and its people, you then arrive at the hotel and you are welcomed into its relaxed and peaceful environment.
Anne is a wealth of knowledge that you should use in planning your tours. The tours she arranged for us in Luxor were great.
We enjoyed Anne's company as she shared her Egyptian experiences with us.
We would definately return and recommend it to travellers.

My stay at The Maison De Pythagore was fabulous. My hosts, Anne and Thomas, were unbelievably kind, warm and witty. I loved being in a real Egyptian setting, a village outside of Luxor, as opposed to a hotel filled with tourists. I was invited into several neighbors' homes and felt very safe being on my own in the various villages in that area. Anne's traditional house is very beautiful and comfortable.The delicious meals were savored in her wonderful garden. A professional cook for many years in Belgium, Anne's expertise combined with the very fresh ingredients produced impressive results. The details of all my sightseeing (the magnificent tombs and Temple of Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel) were very carefully arranged by Thomas. I was fortunate to have the superb guide, Farraje, accompanied by the lovely Abdou as our driver. My other guide, Mohammed, was delightful and supportive in our road trip to Aswan and Abu Simbel. I chose to have my guided visits in French and spoke with the family in that language. (Other visitors may wish to have English speaking guides. Thomas speaks English very well and so does Anne.) Already, I have booked my return visit and eagerly await the chance to be amongst my new friends, as well as to see more superb temples and art and be immersed in the French language. Anne and Thomas made it possible for me to travel to a Muslim country as a single woman; I will always be grateful to them for their tremendous assistance and hospitality.
