This apartment features a balcony, oven and private entrance.
"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, the jackal headed god of the dead. 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 of the 'Old Gods'.
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 (where the descendants of Ali Baba now smile as you willingly hand them your cash!) 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 Luxors newest Coptic Church about 300 metres away, with a capacity of 9000 (yes, that is nine thousand!!!) and several other Christian churches within 5 minutes of the apartment. There is the Methodist, and the Brethren and the Evangelical Presbyterian. Although all our near neighbours are Muslim, we are almost spoilt for choice as far as churches go.
Speaking of our neighbours; you will find them very friendly and helpful. Next door we have old Mr. Mohamed, a sadly retired English guide with more than 60 years of experience! 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.
It takes 10 minutes to walk to the ferry landing on the East Bank, the 1le charge for tourists to cross the Nile to the West is well worth it just for the actual experience. In the opposite direction, you can find the Railway Station and the fancy Tourist Information Centre in about 6 or 7 minutes.
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 meshrabeya 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".
The television is wired to a Satellite with some 400 or so channels. An additional 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. The handmade twin beds can also be locked together to form a "superking", our mattresses are regularly subjected to our "Kirby" cleaning system. 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 a USB modem for laptops, 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.
To keep within the law, we don't allow local visitors.
Featuring tiled floors, this spacious, air-conditioned apartment boasts 3 bedrooms and 2 private bathrooms. It includes a wardrobe, a living room with a satellite TV and a balcony with a panoramic view. The apartment also features a dining fully equipped kitchen.
