“Peaceful Paradise on west bank”
Reviewed 17 August 2009

This is a beautiful hotel. the rooms are simple and clean, aircon, fridge and great bathroom and wonderful balcony surrounded by flowers and plants over looking the lovely pool- very peaceful and calm especially after madness of east bank and sights. Ferry is 5 minute walk if that and takes 5 mins to get to town whenever you want. So glad chose to stay West Bank and that I discovered this relaxing haven- could've easliy spent whole time there and forgotten bout sights we'd come to see! Staff warm and friendly, no pressure. Would def return.

We had a fantastic time at the El Gezira Gardens. This appartment based hotel offers a real oasis in the sun away from the hustle and bustle of Luxor, yet only a short (and cheap) ferry ride away from Luxor Temple - the ferry itself only being 5 to 10 minute walk away from hotel. The rooms are basic, but air conditioned, clean and tidy. The pool is a great area to cool down in the heat of the day. The staff were absolutely fantastic and food fabulous. Internet access area great for staying in touch. Great value for money.

If you are looking for a genuine egyptian experience with friendly service then this is the place for you. This isnt a five (or even four) star luxury hotel but it is clean tidy, well kept and full of character.

The hotel itself is situated on the quiet West Bank of Luxor away from the bussle and is ideally situated for visiting the west bank temples and tombs. In fact, right next door there are camels for hire to take you there! The hotel has wonderful fields on one side and is about 200m from the Nile (a 10 minute walk to the ferry and other restaurants).

The hotel has a small pool which is essential in the heat and has lovely roof terraces for star watching in the evenings.

The service was attentive (as it tends to be when there is a chance of a tip) and always done with a big smile - the hotel is family run and populated with genuine and helpful people.

Email the hotel, the owner speaks perfect English.
(and will have a beer with you in the evenings)

Memorable !

What a great little hotel!
It was a relief to take the local ferry (E£1) across the Nile to the west bank, away from crowds.
Lovely room with aircon and fan. Great roof top terrace for relaxing with a turkish coffee. Hotel offers simple but tasty meals. Recommend nearby El-Fayroux hotel for egyptian food in a lovely garden restaurant.
Would have loved to have stayed longer at the El Gezira, the staff were really helpful and friendly!!

We had an amazing experience in the Gezira Garden. On our first night, the hotel had a small party on the roof (amazing food, live traditional music, and dancing) and we met some locals that gave us amazing tips on things to see that normal tours don't. This made all the difference in our trip.

The hotel itself was very clean and well run. The owners organized everything we wanted to do and made amazing suggestions. They truly made our 4 day trip to Luxor absolutely amazing.

The only downside to the hotel is that it's on the other side of the river as the city. However, at night, you can see an amazing view of the lit up temple of Luxor, and during the day, you won't need to cross the river to see all the attractions of the West Bank. They also offer a private boot that will take you across whenever you want.

All in all, I would highly suggest the El Gezira.

  • Liked — Made guests feel at home in modern Egyptian culture while still being close to major tourist attractions. Not exactly 5 star luxury, but amazing proximity to culture and history.
