Beit Sabee Hotel
Ranked #4 of 31 Luxor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 6 July 2011

Having lived for sometime in Southern Egypt 10 years ago, I was more than eager to go back, and experience the splendors of the West Bank of the Nile once again. For the traveler that wants a magical and special Egyptian experience, away from the other tourists and big hotels, there is no better than Beit Sabee. The West Bank of the Nile, where many of the best tombs and temples are to be found, is the quiet and romantic side of Egypt. Having spent time in both worlds, there is no question that I will only stay at Beit
Sabee from now on.

The food is great, the people are very kind, and yes, it is in the desert, so expect heat and sand, but isn't that why we go?

I highly recommend Beit Sabee and think anyone that values making their visit to Souther Egypt special will be more than happy they stayed here.

Beit Sabee is a charming guest house with several delightfully decorated rooms arranged around a central courtyard. All have private baths and views of the the courtyard or the date palms and fields of the surrounding village. From the roof deck you can see Medinate Habu, the Valley of the Kings and watch the balloons soar overhead at dawn. On the West Bank, adjacent to the superb Medinat Habu temple, it's quiet, atmospheric and far away from the noise and bustle of the East Bank. Breakfasts are delicious. The charming staff can provide other meals as well. If you want quiet, a place to experience the pace of village life and great style, stay at Eeir Sabee

Great hotel for a single traveller since you breakast at one long table with other guests and dinners are also communal. Breakfast on the terrace looking one way at the desert and the other into village life, people working in fields, animals and paddies and palms. And at night a beer round a brazier like ancient times. Delightful hamlet to wander around. Buy fruit from man and cart that comes around in the morning.
Then ideally a cruise with nour el nil. There is no doubt that it is way the top boat with enormous care and energy by the owners who are on board one boat for each cruise. A charming boat that really sails unless wind totaly dies. It is the only boat that really does sail whenever possible. The food is superb and the boat has amazing charm that must have taken a great deal of thought and shopping in bazaars.

I can't say enought about our incredible stay at Beit Sabee. From the minute we arrived, it was everything we had hoped for in our long awaited trip to Egypt. The staff and owners were extremely helpful each step of our stay. We are very grateful that such an elegant and accomodating place exists. Each room tastefully done and a magnificent breakfasts each morning. Take every bit of advice given by the Beit Sabee staff for a renewing, fascinating and enjoyable visit. It was a magical and magnificent vacation. Exactly the type of lodging that provides both comforts, adventure and charm. Not enought of them left in this world and delighted to have found Beit Sabee. Thanks to all.

I stayed at Beit Sabee for one night, prior to boarding the FANTASTIC Nour El Nil boat that took me on an amazing, and unforgettable journey down the Nile. Beit Sabee is a lovely little abode tucked away from the tourists traps of Luxor. The hotel is located within a serene countryside, yet it's close to all the attractions. The colorful decor and relaxed atmosphere allows you to unwind and catch some well-needed peace and quiet (at least in my case). The staff was wonderful, friendly, and completely attentive. Home cooked meals are served by the lovely chef and they are delicious - flavors of Egypt just seep through! The "common areas" are comfortable and you feel as though you are lounging at home. I love this little hotel, the price is great, the staff is amazing, and the accommodations are lovely. I can't wait to stay here again!

The hotel is fantastic: The place is pretty and quiet, the rooms clean and comfortable, the food delicious and the people who run the hotel are lovely. It's exactly what we wanted as a base from which to explore Luxor. An oasis in what can be quite a hectic city.
