What a Wonderful Place - Clean, Comfortable & Accommodating

people found this review helpful

My partner Mark & I have just returned from two awesome weeks in Luxor at Home Sweet Home (HSH) on the West Bank. Ahmed, Ragep and Mohamed were there 24/7 to help with anything we needed, but discrete if we were being quiet. We arranged several tailor made trips via HSH to historical sites near and far. All the arrangements were made on our behalf with meticulous attention to detail and at very competitive prices. The pool is cleaned twice a day and is a joy to jump into after a long day trekking the temples and tombs. An added bonus for us as dog lovers was the warm welcome home each night, not only from our hosts, but Blackie and Lilly the dogs. We really had a truly relaxing time and saw the most amazing sites. But as there is so much to see around Luxor, we could not see it all in one trip, so we must go back. We would not hesitate to recommend Home Sweet Home to anyone wishing to visit Luxor.

Home Sweet Home was very easy to book, and communications with the owner (in Holland) were easy and prompt. The only inaccuracy in the description may be that it doesn't adequately convey what a truly beautiful apartment this is. It is spotless and spacious, with a big private balcony, a rooftop sitting area (with BBQ), a pretty garden, and a private swimming pool which was well maintained. All the furnishings are high quality - no "tat". The kitchen is very well equipped and the huge bathroom has a full length bath, not just a shower, and constant hot water. The owners even start you off with some food basics. The beds are really comfortable too. There's excellent wi-fi reception, and a satellite TV (not that we had much time to watch).

We were very well looked after by Ahmed, the friendly local agent. He speaks good English and is happy to help with trips to some of the local sites at a fair price. He also met us from the train station on arrival and returned us there when we left - all part of the package. Ahmed's support is well balanced - available when needed, but not intrusive.

Luxor is an amazing place, and we loved every minute. Of course there's a fair amount of hassle on the streets from touts trying to sell you souvenirs or take carriage rides or felucca sails (both of which we did). It's worth Googling about this so you get the picture in advance. But the beauty of Home Sweet Home is that it is on the West bank, i.e. opposite Luxor city. It is just a short ferry trip (E£1 by public ferry, or negotiable E£5-10 by private motor boat) from the ferry quay by Luxor temple to the West Bank village. This has reasonable shops and some good restaurants next to the river. The apartment is in a rural location surrounded by fields about 1 km away. From the balcony you'll have a ringside seat to watch traditional farming methods. There are more shops in the village down the lane (15 mins beautiful walk along the irrigation canal).

If you haven't been to Luxor, now is a great time to go. Don't be put off visiting Egypt because of news reports of trouble. That's a VERY long way away, and doesn't affect tourists (we also stayed a week in Cairo).

We liked our 10-day stay in the beautiful appartment. The appartment is spacious, very clean and comfortable and is situated in a quiet area with beautiful views on the mountains and the Nile. Just as the other times we have been to Luxor, we hired bicycles. With the bike all the interesting sites of Luxor are within a 30 minutes reach. The staff is very friendly and they do everything to feel at home. So we are very satisfied about Home Sweet Home and recommend this place!

A great place to stay. A beautiful apartment from the moment you step in, in a very modern updated way where furniture, fixtures, design and decor are concerned. Nice, clean and very tasteful home stay in a safe and quiet residential area. Has a nice swimming pool and very friendly people. It was being at home in a very foreign land.If you are looking for a place to feel at home and relaxed then look no further, home sweet home is the BEST!!!!

person found this review helpful

I had the most wonderful experience here with Mohamed, Margreet, Ahmed, Mahmoud, Ragep, and of course Lilly; all of whom have been most gracious and welcoming, Upon my arrival, I asked if there were an rules and the response was, "Rules?! The rule is to have fun!" And fun I had, I will miss the spacious and comfortable apartment, never-ending views from the gorgeous balconies, swimming in the perfectly cool pool (for a Northerner, it's perfect), the quiet serenity of the country-side, the walks through the fields to the Nile, and the beautiful courtyard with fruit-bearing trees. But most of all I will miss each and every person I have met. This has truly felt like a home to me with the most wonderful family. I will assuredly return as soon as I can! Salam

I will certainly advise others to use it and i will certainly come back there again

I spent two nights in the accommodation as part of 7 nights i spent in Egypt.
the owner is excellent in communication and they make you feel welcomed and looked after well (warmly given the welcome back on my arrival for some necessary stuff needed for my stay, the owner also organized the taxi and the driver to take me and stay with me while visiting the different temples in the area ...)
the property itself nice, clean had its own clean swimming pool ,i had the apartment which was very clean, tidy and equipped with all what needed and made my stay very comfortable.
the building is secured
