A hotel right in the the middle of Luxor that has a lovely reception area, very friendly staff who can't do enough for you. Room was cleaned every day with clean towels etc, we only ate B&B and ate locally the rest of the time. There are quite a few places to eat that are owned by British people that are clean and tidy, as we were a bit more careful where we ate due to us going sightseeing and not wanting to risk being ill. It is also worth paying a visit to the pub 2002- Esquire which is off main drag, but the service and prices are excellent and the owner Issac will even help improve your Arabic. We did eat in the Aladdin's restaurant by the side of the pool which provides typical egyptian food, was very nice and reasonable. Also the italian restaurant was o.k.
Buy your bottled water outside of the hotel as you can pick it up for 3 eyptian pounds as apposed to 13 in the hotel. Be prepared for some hassle when you step outside as there are lots of horse and carriages wanting your custom, also barter with them and the taxi's as the first price they tell you will always be inflated.(we got a taxi back from Karnack Temple for 5 pounds which had started at 20)
We used Jolly's as a trip company which is up at the corniche on the way to Luxor temple, as they were reasonably priced and the guide that we had (Emmy) was excellent.
All in all a good holiday that we both thoroughly enjoyed.
