We just had dinner there and were totally surprised about the quality of the food! One cannot eat better Egyptian food than there. And the amount was overwhelming. The meat was perfect and the oil they used for aubergine and french fries fresh and of good quality.

It is hard work being a tourist in Luxor. Numbers are a third down and major hassle has increased. Expect a barrage of caleche drivers and shopkeepers touting for your custom. However, the West Bank is a peaceful haven, the location of this hotel, only a 5 minute boat ride away from Luxor. The private shuttle boat is free and available whenever you want. It is on the banks of the river, and at the end of a track through a village. At the back of the hotel is a banana plantation since the area is Banana Island. From the open air dining place you can see the river and at night the neon signs of the chain hotels reflected on the water.

There is no traffic noise, only birds and donkeys! This is a good place to see the piebald Nile kingfisher, herons, egrets and cormorants.

The rooms are very private since you have your own bungalow - traditionally domed to keep it cool. It is spacious and spotless. There is plenty of hot water for the shower, a/c and the mini bar is well stocked including Stella beer. Every morning fresh flowers are placed on elaborate towel 'art'.

During my stay there was an Egyptian evening with a whirling dervish and traditional Egyptian food. Breakfast and dinner is copious with organic vegetables from the garden.

There is a pool by the river bank with loungers in the shade.

Most importantly, Mahmoud and Martina make you feel very welcome and go out of their way to help you. Martina met me personally and took me to my room although I arrived off a flight at the crack of dawn. Their driver was waiting for me at the airport with a sign.

The trained staff are from the village, naturally polite and hospitable. The hotel has therefore provided jobs for the locals in a depressed tourist market.

Mahmoud can arrange tours and got me a cabin on a cruise ship to Aswan at the last minute.

Mahmoud has worked for years in the hotel industry and it shows in every detail. This is a professionally-run establishment which could easily be labelled a boutique hotel.

I will stay here when I return to Luxor.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely with their own shaded seating area in a garden.

I had visited Luxor a few years ago and not been overly impressed with hotel accommodations- so this time we decided to look for a bed and breakfast on the west bank. It was there we found a jewel. Hotel El Baeirat was perfect in every way-from their charming rooms (always meticulously cleaned and then decorated with flowers and "towel art" every morning) to the restaurant-serving delicious freshly prepared meals. As a chef, I'm quite choosy when it comes to food, but every meal, breakfast, lunch and dinner was superb-using fresh locally grown ingredients and presented simply-but beautifully! The staff also-were fantastic, always ready to help us -with a smile and enthusiasm. The manager, Mahmoud could not have done more to help make our stay one of the best we've had in years....anywhere! Even outside the hotel, he made sure all our arrangements for taxis and tours went without any problems or delays. After visiting all the sights on the West bank, it was fantastic coming back to the hotel for a swim, dinner and mean competition of billiards with other guests, Mahmoud and his brother......We will be back....

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!
