I loved staying here. Mara, Sara & Steve - fantastic. Wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable on the area, tours, culture - invaluable advice on how to approach Egypt and its culture. So glad I decided to come here. Mara House is a lovely hotel of apartments that more than suffice and has a lovely restaurant that offers traditional Egyptian cuisine. All the staff were wonderful and it was really welcoming and relaxed.
I didn't want a tourist hotel, I much prefer staying places where I can be a bit away from that side of things and see more local life. This did it. 5-10 minute walk from the back of Luxor train station, another short walk to Luxor temple & the Nile. All the locals round the hotel were friendly and would say hello when they saw you.
Mara is a diamond and her tours well planned - go to Abydos & Dendera. Her advice on everything was most welcome, and she will keep you in line in her wonderful Irish way!!
I almost decided to come back her after Cairo but glad we stayed on the West bank as it offered another perspective but will definitely be coming back to Mara house when next make it to Egypt.
i recommend this to anyone going to Egypt for the first time and anyone who hasn't stayed there before and anyone who has stayed there before will likely stay there again.
