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.

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

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 ...

Fontanna Pension Louxor: traveller warning AVOID!!!
This is a formal warning to all potential visitors to Fontanna Pension In Sharia radwan off television street. If you are self respecting avoid this dive like the plague. Whilst I didn`t stay here thankfully,
my Egyptian husband went to view a room a few days ago,we only were staying in Louxor for one night so my Egyptian husband went into the Fontanna pension to get a price but ended up paying a price without staying. The maid showed him the room and came to receptionand accused him of stealing money from her,the son of the owner then started pushing him around and a nasty mob of
15/20 men gatherd and started to beat my husband and took 200le out of his wallett and photocopied his id card, two men saved him and he came to me very upset and barely able to speak,finally he told me in tears of this vile incident.I then insisted we go to the police he said he had no faith in police but I insisted but first we had to go back to the scene. This was hard for him but I insisted this was for the good of other potential victims. However when we got there the two men who had saved him insisted the owner wanted to speak to us, they came with us as witnesses and the owner said it wasa mistake and his son had been hasty. He gave us drinks but I refused as I didn`t want to be accused of stealing as well. The owner said he had refunded the maid if any money had even been stolen as they couldn`t pinpoint the theif,if there was one. The owner was made aware I was European and might involve the police so was being phoney with me. He apologised to us and my husband decided to drop the issue to prevent future problems. I raised the issue of his money being removed from his wallet and the owner should reimburse but my husband said maybe he had lost it even though he knew the truth. The owner said everything happened at once as the other guest requested tea at the time of my husbands visit re price enquiry. So the incident was closed at my husbands request to forget it even though he can`t it has affected him badly and he is not a theif he has never stolen from me and he is a good man.even the two men who rescued him said this and they had only met him once. I believe you must publish this review as not to do so would be condoning this vile incident and encourage a future reoccuorance. This is a warning to all selfrespecting travellers. Incidentally this fontanna pension not to be confused with Fontanna hotel, is a place of ill repute a brothel and is used by cheap women and also drugs haven. Maybe the maid was disappointed my husband was not interested and needed to make some fast money.The whole incident is very underhand and ruined my holiday.
none whatsoever. It is on a dodgy and dingy sidestreet at the end and the sign is white with blue writing.

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.

Dahayiba Luxury Boat: Sail in Style on the Nile Aboard a Dahayiba
Our stay aboard a suped-up modern day dahabiya for a week and a half was awesome! My family and I chose the dahabiya as we thought that it would be better to sail along the Nile rather then take a bus from here to there from a hotel. We weren't disappointed. Aboard the Dahabiya, we were treated like kings and were fed three meals a day and all the drinks we could drink. The meals were cooked aboard the dahabiya and if we weren't on an excursion to one of the many temples en route from Luxor to Aswan, we were playing card games, backgammon, and Scrabble.
The dahabiya's price includes all food and drink as part of the package. Our cost was $3,000 PER AIR CONDITIONED CABIN for our 10 day stay. A cabin holds two people. The fee also depends on what time of the year you decide to sail along the Nile. We chose the first weeks of May as it is cheaper at this time then in March or April. The dahayiba has a airconditioned stateroom inside and if you want to take a break from the heat above deck. The stateroom and entire dahabiya is constructed in an elegant plush "British style" and has everything from a Television/DVD player to books and boardgames.

Jewel of the Nile holiday apartment: A real Jewel
Want to avoid the crowds in Luxor? Want a view of the Nile and Luxor temple from the kitchen window? Then Jewel of the Nile Apartment is for you. Located on the less populated West bank, it's handy for all the west bank sites (valley of the Kings, temples etc.) and also a great place just to chill out on the roof top balcony. Host Nobi goes out of his way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Our family stayed for one week in the large 2nd floor apartment - just ideal.
Outstanding views of the Nile

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

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
