I stayed in Luxor east last time four years ago. How glad I am to choose Gezira to stay this time, especially, Amon Hotel being the jewel of jewels. Everyday we returned from the hot, noisy, hassling outside to this delightful sanctuary which does have a beautiful garden with exotic trees and birds. The room is spacious, clean and has a private balcony to overlook the garden. We enjoyed the hotel so much that we had dinner almost everyday during our five-day stay here. The tagen (either okra or molokhia) was very tasty, ice cold beer was welcoming at reasonable price. Breakfast was fulfilling too: I often had to request to be given one egg instead of two!:) Hotel can aldo do laudry, and is easily accesible to west bank ferry as well as bicycle rentals. There is a camel/horse stable right in the next alley.
The owner, Mr. Ahmed Soliman was a gracious, respectable old gentleman who speaks very good English. He invited us to see his house nearby to get a feel of Egyptian life. The other night he drove us in his car to the Gurna village and pointed us some interesting sights not otherwise known to casual tourists. The staffs were all courteous and kind to us during our stay. We were very reluctant to leave Luxor at last but do wish to stay there again if we revisit in the future.
