Happy Land Hotel: Cheap and Convenient
Happy Land Hotel is only 10 minutes by horse and carriage from the main train station and it was an excellent option. It offered heaters in the winter with blankets and during the summer it offers soap and mosquito nets. The rooms are spotless and the local young guy that works here is a fountain of golden information. They also provide a driver for the day to the valley making this option a great place to set up camp.

Merryland Hotel: On the Esplande with View of Nile
We arrived without reservations, but had heard this was a good budget place to stay. It was not a fancy room, but then we only spent our sleeping hours there. The hotel is about a block or two south of the Luxor Temple, and maybe a 1/2 mile north of Karnak. It was about 3 or 4 blocks, plus or minus north of the tourist ferry to the West Bank. We found that the landing for the worker ferry about about the same or closer distance. We had A/C and TV with a small balcony that viewed on the Nile. The bath is private.
I don't recall anything unique about the place except its great location. This was the type of budget hotel we prefer. Like most lodging in Egypt, I don't really recommend reservations. It's more of a hassle than it's worth. There are plenty of hotel rooms in Luxor, and I didn't see any way that even at high season the place would book up as can be the case in the USA.

MS Rosetta: Nile Cruise
We had a cruise boat for three nights of our trip...we stayed on a boat named the MS Rosetta... It was a really nice boat (although a little old in the decor area) and it was a highlight of our trip...
The rooms were very comfortable, clean and everyone had a window. They have a pool on the top deck, a bar & restaurant etc.

THE DIAMOND BOAT: A SAIL ON THE RIVER
the cruise on the diamond was excellent the cabins are spacious for a river boat they were cleaned every day with fresh linen and towels
the cabin staff are very friendly and work hard
the food was a bit hit and miss but there was always something to eat and did not spoil our holiday, drinks cost around £25 ep/pounds £2.50 sterling for a bottle of lager no cash is used on board you sign a receipt which you keep a copy and settle the bill at the end of your cruise ( some people were caught out at how much their bar bill was ) but a total up at the end off the day your self keeps account of what you spend I was 10 pounds out but I forgot to pick up a couple of my bills
early morning starts up around 5.00am(early wake up calls get you up) for a few of the trips due to the heat , 3.00am if going to Abu simbil by coach this is a extra trip cost £65.00 each but worth it ,you are back on board around 1.00pm for dinner on most of the trips . the guides give good information but need you to ask questions to help them to know what to tell you (don't expect to take in what is said as so much info is given to you ) as you walk around the sites
all the trips were very good impressive sites
the entertainment was good we had a magician ,whirling dervish ,Nubian dance band and fancy dress party were every body dressed in Egyptian costumes and played party games
two free beach towels are placed in your cabin with a free bum bag on arrival from Cruise Egypt
go off the boat to the bars on the bankside beer here 80p a bottle, water 20p in luxor
one down side cruise egypt recommend £30/40 english pounds as tips for the crew and the same again for the guides most people thought this was a bit steep so put in what you think
GOOD POOL, JACUZZI ,PLENTY OF SUNBEDS ,TOWELS PROVIDED,POOL BAR ,SHADED AREA TO GET OUT OF THE SUN ,
EXCELLANT VEIWS AS YOU SAIL DOWN THE NILE

Flats in Luxor: Going Local in Luxor
At a party in Luxor we met with Jane Akshar. She sounded Scottisch. We talked some time and she told us she rented flats in Luxor. We were already in a the Senmut B&B, but if you're interested in renting an apartment in the heart of historical Luxor, she can help you out. The appartments looked nice and she has a swimming pool. Check out their website.
Clean, simple, comfortable. Prices start at £150 GBP per week per flat during the low season and £200 GBP per week during the high season.

Senmut Bed and Breakfast: The friendliest stay in Luxor!
We've stayed for four days in this lovely B&B called Senmut on the West Bank of Luxor: the valley of the kings is in the backyard. We were treated like family and felt at home: the room was large and clean with a large shower and toilet. The breakfast was fine and other meals could be catered for. We were supported in travelling around and pointed at sites. English ad Dutch spoken.
The views from the roof: looking over Luxor temple and the old Winter Palace. Sayed and his family do everything to accommodate the stay. This part of Luxor is still rural - including unpaved roads - and relaxed.

Happyland Hotel: Luxor, cheap but nice
Central location, helpful staff, nice breakfast, a/c, private bathrooms. A very good hotel in this budget range.
15 mins walk from bus or train station, but in this heat, get a taxi.
Very clean and quiet. Plenty of activities if you so desire.
It is down a side street, so not the easiest to find.
Plenty of shops and major bus routes nearby.
Pool in nearby St Josephs can be used for £1

Merryland Hotel: Nile views & rooftop bar
The Merryland was our haven in Luxor - air con rooms with a view across the Nile; a rooftop bar to watch the sunset while knocking back a few cold beers; great staff. I would recommend staying here but ask about rooms with views because not all rooms have them.

Hotel Fontana: Hotel Fontana
Not a bad hotel. It was centrally located and had friendly staff. There was an Egyptian wedding outside the first night which was fun to watch. The festivities ended around 12pm so I still got a decent sleep. They rent bikes, which are a good deal, and tours to the West Bank. The West Bank tours were a little pricey at around 295 LE.
Singles 15-20 LE
Doubles 30-40 LE
- Hot Water
- Rooftop Terrace
- Overnight Laundry

St.Catarina hotel: St.Catarina hotel
I stayed in this hotel twice, and i think that next time i'll choose "St.Catarina" again. :-)
Why? Because, there you can get so interesting and amazing sights of city life, because hetel is almost near the city center -Luxor temple is really close :-)
Rooms in "St.Catarina" are normal, of course, not luxuty, but for backpackers quite a good :-)
There you can get breakfast, too. Choose the terrace on the roof when you'll have breakfast :-)

Arabesque Hotel: Luxor spot
Really liked this place. Not plush or fancy by any means (more of a budget hostel with private rooms/baths) but gave us a feel for Luxor.
Pool - but wouldn't try it (above ground on top of roof!!!)
We had nice balcony - one night able to watch a wedding take in a nearby area - so beautiful

M/S Nile Sovereign: Great accommodation along the Nile
The Nile Sovereign is one of the 350 cruise boats which ply visitors to all the sights along the Nile between Luxor and Aswan.
The Nile Sovereign is a small intimate boat having only 30 cabins. It is perfectly well equipped with a restaurant, lounge bar, shop, laundry facilities, sun deck with swimming pool and a bar.
Taking a maximum of 60 passengers at any one time, the Nile Sovereign has 61 crew members.
All meals were provided on board, a buffet breakfast, a three course lunch, afternoon tea and cakes and a formal evening meal. The food was good but sadly it was not Egyptian as the tour company seems to think that the tourists only eat western food. How wrong can they be!!!!!
Our friends Sarah and Jon are vegetarians and although there was always a good selection of meat free dishes, they were always given an additional vegetarian main dish-I think the chef took a fancy to Sarah!
