More about Oasis Hotel

A nice place to stay in on the East Bank in Luxor

by travellingtechie about Oasis Hotel, Luxor

I had mailed the day before reaching Luxor to Hassan, the hostel owner, to have someone to receive me at the train station, and he himself was there with a placard of my name to receive me the next morning at 7 at the train station. The room was nice and comfortable and the place also had a roof-top sitting area where free tea was served in the evening after 5. The bathrooms were clean, even the common ones.
Hassan was kind enough to wish us good luck when we checked out although we had not taken any tours from him, unlike our host in Cairo. The place is only 5 minutes walk from the main train station of Luxor and 5 minutes from the Luxor temple. The ferry point to go to the west bank is only 10 minutes of walk from the hostel. The neighbourhood in general is pretty neat and safe to stay in. The owner of the place, Hassan, sounded like a nice chap. Like all other good businessmen, he made us an offer for his tours to the West bank and the hot-air balloon rides, but was not rude to us when we politely turned them down. The hostel is in a busy neighbourhood which is not very loud. The train station is 5 minutes walk from where one can get a taxi to the airport for as low as 30 LE, I paid that amount at 9 in the evening.
The hostel is 5 minutes from the Luxor temple and 10 minutes from the ferry point to go to the west bank.

Re: budget accomodation in cairo and luxor

I think you may have a problem with budget accomadation near Ramses station. My guide books only listed one cheap place in the vicinity (see my Cairo page) & alth it was just about OK for a single night, arriving late/departing early stay, I wouldn't have wanted to stay much longer. You'll be better off looking for places on Talaat Harb, imo.

Try Garden City Hotel near Tahrir Square. This hotel is located behind the Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel on the third floor.It is not close to Ramsis station but you can reach it easily by Metro from the nearby Sadat Metro station.

My room was equipped with an air conditioner, a TV and had a Bath. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was good. Staff were friendly. I paid 60 few years back.

Travel Tips for Luxor

Enjoy a Nile Sunset from the river bank!

by ATXtraveler

I definitely enjoyed taking a sunset stroll down the Nile river bank in Luxor, due to their wonderful sidewalk. It was nice and wide to allow many tourist to stroll past you, and had plenty of seating elsewhere so you could sit and enjoy the sunset!

Karnak Temple

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

A highlight of Luxor (ancient city of Thebes) is the Karnak Temple. It covers an immense more than 40 hectares. The main and the grandest place of worship is the Precinct of Amun. The Great Hypostyle Hall is 6000 sq m and filled with immense stone pillars. The whole site has colossal statues, reliefs, obelisks and halls and, of course, the Avenue of the Sphinxes.

The Karnak Temples are open from 6:30 am until 5:30 pm in winter and from 6 am to 6 pm during summer.

Admission is LE 50 for foreigners, LE 20 for foreign students, LE 4 for Egyptians and LE 2 for Egyptian students. Visiting the open-air museum, to the left of the second pylon, costs an extra LE 20. The museum contains a collection of statuary that was found throughout the temple complex. The ticket has to be purchased at the main Karnak ticket kiosk.

Karnak takes at least a half of a day just to walk around its many precincts and years to come to know it well.

VT has its separate location for Karnak Temple. I have my own Karnak Temple page with 22 tips and 114 pics. You may see more pics on my Travelogue

The Nile River

by CandS

The Nile River is the lifeline of the majority of Egyptians... It runs from the top to the bottom of Egypt and almost all of the Egyptian people live on or near the river. It is also a very big tourist attraction with many tourists going on cruises, felucca rides etc...

carved up over carvings

by BerniShand

we were badly ripped off at an alabastar store near the valley of the kings .when you choose the piece you want to buy dont take your eyes off it for a minute....the lovely perfectly carved cat we chose was wrapped and taped up and it was only when we got back to the UK and unwrapped it we found it had been swapped for one with an ear missing........they didnt even put the broken bit in the parcel!........and no I cant remember the name of the shop!
