“Relaxing place to avoid the crowd in Luxor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Mohammed is definitely a host to be recommended, always willing to help for the logistics and to give good advise without charging for it.
His wife is a great cook and the hotel location makes it very close to the main sites by bicycle.
The hotel is very calm if you do not take rooms on the street and the rooms are well equipped and TV has more than 150 channels to offer!

The only bad thing is the driver that the hotel arranged us, he was completely drunk and caused a small accident. That said, all services provided by Mohammed were perfect.

Nice hostel well located on the west bank away from the hassles, possibility of bargain...
The owner is really friendly and reliable.
His cousin can arrange tours for cheap, his wife
cooks very well and the rooms are fancy and neat.
I ve enjoyed my stay in this well spoted and quiet hostel.
Not so far from the temples, u can rent a bike and cruise to the sites.
Definitely a good draw.

This is a very friendly family run guest house. Ensuite bathrooms. Fridge in the room. Very clean. If they don't have something, they will try to arrange to get it for you.

It's quite new so some things are still being sorted out. They have a little used rooftop restaurant (can seat about 30-40 people) with the most fantastic night time views. You can order a meal - lunch or dinner. Great food but sometimes takes a long time to come so order early,

Breakfast was ok but not much variation.
They allow you to check your emails downstairs, although there is an internet cafe across the road.

The only problem was that there was not always running water in the bathroom, but that just comes with the territory. Once you know this, you can work around it. Very early mornings were better.

Sometimes gets noisy with the traffic, but its just off the main road and I had a room at the front. The good thing was that the tourist buses don't stop off in this little town (which has its own interesting local history that is worth checking out, particularly if you are interested in architecture or the theatre). They run straight through to the main tourist spots but its easy to arrange your own transport to get to the monuments (with the help of the hotel owner)
Also easy to reach the ferry to cross to the East Bank.
Very good value for money, especially if you are travelling on a tight budget, no complaints. Their service was better than some 'starred' hotels I have stayed in.
I stayed for 4 nights and would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: No hesitation to book if you are on a tight budget

My partner and I happened upon this hotel by mistake. We are glad we did as it was away from the hassels of Luxor and was in a great location for the Valley of the Kings. Well reasonably priced too.

This was the cheapest but best of our accommodation. Home cooking, relaxing on the roof, chatting with the family around the brazier after dinner, convenient for local buses, clean, . . . No Arabic necessary, but Mohammed's children and wife offer a great opportunity to practise. Just make sure - if, like us, you can't sleep thorugh traffic noise - that you get a room at the back: the hotel is on a main road. Mohammed also arranged a Red Sea diving trip for us: this was well-organised and "a good price."
