Happy Land Hotel: Good budget backpacker hostel

Friendly hotel fairly centrally located in Luxor - down an interesting small road with markets and lots of local colour! You get a free welcoming Karkadeh (delicious cold hibiscus drink) on arrival, and though they will try to sell you tours straight away, they're not too pushy about it. The rooms are decent and clean (and ours came with a fridge which was so useful - the ability to take frozen water to the Valley of the Kings was a life-saver!).

Breakfast is included in the price, and there's a nice roof-top area for eating and relaxing.

Private appartment in Luxor: Private appartment in Luxor

You might like to stay in this privately owned appartment in Luxor. It contains a living room, three bedrooms, a kitchen and a large bathing room. Air conditioning. The owner is a Dutch man who sometimes lives in the ground floor appartments. Has a garden. Ideal for a long stay.

Central in Luxor but quiet. You can use a pool and have diner in a nearby B&B.

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 :-)

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
- A/C available

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!

Ninfea: A Nile cruiser !

A cruiseship is the best accomodation one can think of to visit all the sites at the border of the Nile. You sail along all the sites and don't have to pack and unpack every day.
There are so many cruiseships that they have to dock side by side. So, sometimes you have to walk through 4 or more ships before you finally get to your own ship!

The scenery that passes by while you relax at the pool or sit in the bar ...

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

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.

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.

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

New Radwan Hotel: A great deal

This hotel is a good deal for budget travellers. It costs EP60. Clean, spotless room, air-conditioning, private bath. It is very conveniently located - just next to the train station. There is a pastry/bread shop next to the hotel too. A great thing for someone with a sweet tooth. Though the hotel is not a big one, it does have a little swimming pool.

Police Contact details: Hotel assistance

If you do encounter any problems, then initially approach the reception at your hotel, who should and will offer you some very handy assistance.

If you need to contact the policefor any reason, take a noe of these names as I found them to be the most helpful...

Transport Police - Major Omar Katab
Tourist Police - Col Hagez Hussen.
Maj Ashraf Shrief.

The staff at you hotel should be very helpful and also useful for interpreting and providing handy information on good deals.

M/S Melodie: Cruising down the Nile

Imaginative Traveller use the M/S Melodie for their Nile cruises which is quite an old boat with basic accommodation. Saying this, bedding is very clean and staff are friendly and helpful. Food on board is buffet style and tasty, although can get a bit repetitive after a while.
We had a small double cabin on the top deck which was nice as it had it's walkway which acted as a kind of balcony for us - nice to keep the cabin door open as we sailed down the Nile!
On the top deck you had a small pool and sun loungers. The middle deck had the entertainment area, bar and small shop and below this was the reception and restaurant.
Our cruise lasted for 7 days on the boat and most days we would make a stop in different destinations to go sightseeing.

Staff were great and prices of drinks were fair.

Nile Cruise: The Oberoi, Zahra

we spent a week of our holiday on the magnificent Zahra.

Fortunately, we were able to book one of these grand Suites on the Luxor to Aswan trip and we have absolutely no regrets.

We were welcomed in Luxor with drinks and the wonderful attentive Zahra Manager and staff. Docked at its own mooring site, there was no need to climb from one boat to the other. The dock for the Zahra in Luxor is past the Sheraton Hotel towards the bridge… further down the Nile from Luxor Temple.

SUITE - a smart layout of the living room with dining table, sofa, plasma, writing desk, tea/coffee facilities, mini-bar; bedroom with under-bed lighting, reading lights, plasma, views the Nile through the bathroom and living room windows; walk-in closet with electronic safe, bathroom with a huge double shower, bath, double sinks, hair-dryer, huge windows; and finally the private deck complete with 2 cushioned sunbeds, chairs and Jacuzzi with shade. Our private deck was accessible from the Sun Deck.

The cruise itinerary is unique there are five days of sailing during the cruise, the visits are organised in special time, when temples are not busy. Guests were divided into small groups and taken to tours via the air-conditioned Mercedes people carriers. Guests were offered bottles of water for the trips which came in a shoulder length bottle holder. Many of the trips were early morning or late afternoon leaving us time to be pampered in the Spa or hair-dressers, relax in the Cigar lounge, spend time in the gym and to simply relax by the swimming pool on the Sun Deck. There is a choice of dvd’s should you wish to escape the rest of the guests and staff and chill out in the suite. Whenever we returned to the boat from a trip, we were once again greeted by the friendly staff with cold soaked towels, a refreshing touch.

EATING / DRINKING - Food on the Zahra was outstanding. Breakfast consisted of a variety of hot food, pastries, fruits and cereals. there is also a la cart items. Lunch was available either in the restaurant or on the Sun Deck. To be honest, nothing could be beat being on the Sun Deck watching the Nile sites go by under their cool mist of water Lunch offers included: tempura prawns, Oberoi burger, Asian salad etc. Dinner in the restaurant was simply magnificent. The attentive chef who greeted all the guests personally at some point during the week gave attention to what every guest wanted. An authentic evening of Egyptian food was on offer for one night and then a full Indian meal on another. We were spoilt.
