We stayed one night before our Nile cruise, but went back several times to hang out, use internet, and book a tour. Ten minute walk to Luxor Temple and souk, and docks. Three minute walk to train station. Location is great, in the neighborhood. How refreshing to walk through the street and see locals going about their lives--no hawkers in sight!
Mohammed and Omar are wonderful hosts, the room was spotless, the rooftop is a serene place to hang out. Breakfast is good (15LE) and internet is cheap (5LE/hr). Shower floors are slippery, and there are no shower curtains, so put your belongings in a plastic bag to keep dry.
