Description from owner

Description

"Our Luxor" is the most stylish and atmospheric rental in Luxor, it's an English owned and managed oasis of epicurean delight, hidden away and overlooking a tiny alley, in the heart of Luxor's bustling old town. From the terrace, we can see the Theban Hills, wherein are the Royal Tombs, the domains of Anubis. We can watch the hot air balloons looming out of the early morning mists to welcome the rising sun, which every day chases the shadows from the Temples .We have designed our guest apartment to be the realisation of our dreams of the Arabian Nights, of Ali Baba and his 40 thieves and of Aladdin, with his wonderful lamp.You can come and join us, we are right in the middle of it all:Within a minute of leaving our building you can find yourself in the street where all the goldsmiths ply their trade, another couple of minutes and you are in the tourist bazaar or crossing it to be surprised by a Franciscan Church. Within 4 minutes of setting off, you can be gazing in wonder at the newly excavated Avenue of Sphinxes leading away from Luxor Temple, the main entrance of which is a further 2 or 3 minutes stroll.If the diversity of modern-day Luxor intrigues you we have Luxor's newest Coptic Church about 300 metres away, with a capacity of 9000.and several other Christian churches within 5 minutes of the apartment. Most of our neighbours spoken English is very good, as they have nearly all been involved with tourism at one point or another during their careers. Our building entrance is quite deceptive of that which awaits our lucky guests! After climbing the typically Egyptian stairs, we gradually find a semblance of order and civilisation in the calmness which reigns within the "Our Luxor" Apartment. Our supposed competitors may be cheaper; but can never match our value! Once inside the apartment, the entrance hall sets the tone, with its Moorish arch and meshrebeya screen, and antique furnishings on the hand made oriental carpet.Passing through another strikingly ornate arabesque screen one enters the spacious and comfortable living room. Here the beautiful furniture and the exquisite carpet compliment the Arabian Nights décor, all individually designed to create a WOW! factor.The large air conditioner keeps this room cool in the summer and warms it during the winter evenings. As well as being great for lounging on, like an old time Pasha, the three dikkehs (Egyptian sofa beds) are also very comfortable to sleep upon, with their full size single mattresses.The walls are adorned with antique pictures and a large antique mirror, as well as colourful wall hangings. The outer wall is taken up with large tinted windows, giving access to the "Smokers Balcony". A selection of books is available for the small library. Entering the bedroom, we find the en-suite shower room and W.C. on the left and the in-built wardrobe on the right. This room also has an air conditioner/heater. There is a dressing table and mirror, for your convenience. To the left of the bedroom door, is a separate W.C. and wash basin. The kitchen is equipped with the usual necessities: cooker, fridge, filtered hot and cold running water, stainless steel bowl and drainer, toaster, kettle etc. and is initially stocked with a few "essentials" (Tea, coffee, mineral water, milk and sugar, biscuits and, of course, some chocolate!)As we have found that some holiday makers want the flexibility of a self catering apartment but the convenience of an hotel we offer the option of a substantial breakfast served on our roof terrace.We have WI FI, and for ease of local communication, we also provide a mobile phone. Our two numbers are in the contacts, so that you will be able to contact us at any time for advice or information. This comes with credit, and you can top it up as required. Airport transfers are included in the price for stays of 3 nights or more.Only paying guests are allowed in the apartment

“A Jewel in Luxor”

Reviewed 11 Feb 2015

Freda and Edward are amazing hosts – not only is their apartment a charming place to stay, but also they were extremely helpful in every way, before and during our visit, to make our stay in Luxor a special experience. The apartment is like a true oasis in the middle of the gritty and somewhat chaotic street culture of an Egyptian town. Not a typical tourist neighborhood, but still an easy walk to Luxor Temple. From the street entrance, you would not think that you are entering such a fine, well-kept, and beautiful apartment, yet to stay there is simply wonderful. Freda and Edward obviously care very much for the place and for their guests. They were very careful and thorough with advice on tour guides and activities, and truly generous with their time to make specific arrangements directly with the guides, so that we could save time and make the most of our short 2 night visit. Even though there are amazing ancient places that anyone can see in Luxor, Freda and Edward made our overall experience truly unique and pleasurable.

“A dream Egyptian experience lived close up.”

Our ideal holiday is where we stay amongst the local culture, for good and bad. An "England with sun all inclusive luxury hotel experience" is not for us. So we were sceptical about the onli… More
