Best place we stayed, located just 10mins south of Luxor on the westbank.
We were so templed out after a week through Egypt that lolling by the beautiful pool all afternoon was a perfect way to end our trip. The room was a quaint little dome roofed cottage with full bathroom, fridge, AC, minibar at normal prices, and very spacious. Food was also so good I don't think we ate a meal anywhere else for our three days on Luxor! The location is far away from the manic Luxor city, but not more than 10mins motorboat to everywhere. They happily transferred us across the Nile at no charge, which was fantastic.
All of that aside, the friendships we made with Mohamed and Alleh will never be forgotten. Their hospitalitiy and humour made our stay on Luxor one that we will treasured forever. Yes it's a little more expensive than the local dorms and backpackers, but being budget-conscious travellers it was worth every cent. Treat yourself to this place and you won't regret it.
Big hugs from Garth and Emily to all the guys. Bashar!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- On the banks of the Nile Hotel Al Baeirat is situated within a banana plantation. Like a little village it blends into the neighbourhood and is built of country-specific architecture with domed structure which is traditionally made of clay. Off the beaten track you can enjoy the silence and the egyptian style in a private and friendly atmosphere. For relaxation we are offering the whole family a wonderful swimming pool directly on the banks of the Nile. From our patio which is overlooking the Nile we are serving egyptian titbits. While sipping your coffee or drinking a cool beer you can let your eyes wander to the town of Luxor on the opposite shore and at night watch the bright lights of the incoming cruise liners. In the neighbourhood you will find numerous temple complexes, the Valley of the Kings and many more sights. ... more less
