We only spent one night and day here just before we flew home to London. This was after having previously spent 15 days staying in assorted hotels along the Nile including Aswan, Luxor and a top hotel in Cairo, as well as cruising for a few days in a beautiful Dahabiya. In our opinion, this outshone the others although they were either good or very good. This was because it was original, charming and stylish with lovely rooms and fountain courtyards plus a good looking swimmimg pool. The quiet, the greenery, the sound of birdsong and water made a welcome change from the heat, dust, hustle and bustle elsewhere in Egypt and the room was very beautiful. The staff were, of course, very welcoming as you would hope, although rather sadly we were the only guests there that night. However, this was the story of much of our trip to Egypt in the first two weeks of January 2013 as tourists have yet to return after the the pre referundum protests about the Constitution. All seems settled now post the referendum and anyway, it was also clear that the media focus on Tahrir Square was not representative of Cairo let alone the remainder of Egypt. It's a great time to see the truly amazing ancient history of Egypt without the massive throngs of tourists and if you are careful, you dont need to have an upset stomach either - so the next couple of years could be a great time to come to Egypt.
Altough the hotel is a few miles from downtown Luxor, taxis are easily arranged and inexpensive.
