The location is great as it's on a quiet street, but only a five minute walk from the ferry. The Luxor temple is directly across the Nile.
The owner is very friendly and helpful. He arranged all my touring for two days with very little notice and an awareness of my limited budget. The breakfast was plentiful and included with the room.
The hotel is well appointed with comfortable beds, balconies for every room, and hot water. The showers need a little work re: water getting everywhere, but as it's very new, it'll probably get worked out soon.
It has an awesome roof with views of the Valley of Kings and the East Bank. There's even a bar on top, which would have been awesome for parties if the hotel was more full. Because of the political crisis the last few years, most of the hotels were ridiculously empty for high season, but there's no danger in Luxor (in fact, there's not even 'danger' in Cairo) at all and tourists should take advantage of this "low" season for great deals and no crowds.
