I'm a reasonably senior contributor to Trip Advisor. I'm pointing this one out. For a visitor hoping for a genuine experience of Egypt, Mara House is an extraordinary answer! The lodging in Luxor, the food (fantastic!), and the cultural immersion via the Mara House tour... amazing. We hope to go back! Note: Mara House addressed all security questions while in Egypt. We joined with our two Daughters for this trip of a lifetime and we all felt safe throughout.

I traveled to Egypt recently with my parents who I can honestly say would not have set foot in the country were it not for Mara and her wonderful staff.

From allaying our initial nervousness and providing us with a detailed itinerary for a day in Cairo and 3 in Luxor, to detailed travel advice, professional & knowledgeable guides and gorgeous accommodation, we didn't have to worry about a single thing, and loved every minute of our time in this incredible country.

Mara House is so beautifully decorated, the rooms are huge and very clean and comfortable, and the Feast is a fantastic experience. I wish we could have stayed longer!

The tours (we did the Giza plateau in Cairo, and the West Bank and Luxor/Karnak temples in Luxor) were all fantastic, and we can't speak highly enough of the guides.

Special mention must be made of Ahmed, the manager at Mara House - we were late arriving at Mara House after a missed connection, and Ahmed went above and beyond helping us navigate a detour to Aswan and a train journey to Luxor so that we didn't miss out on our planned tour! Thanks so much Ahmed, we're so grateful for your help.

In summary, don't do Egypt without stopping at Mara House; these guys are absolute professionals with a passion for sharing the wonders of their fascinating & beautiful country.

This boutique hotel is located on a very Egyptian side street in Luxor but from the threshold one is inside a delightful Mara's version of the Cretan Woman's House in Cairo. My rooms (bedroom, shower/toilet/kitchenette/extended lounge area) were huge for a solo traveller, clean and well presented. Wonderful hospitality and organisation by Ahmed. Very good quality food and recommendations. Mara made my visit to Egypt an enjoyable, educational and enriching experience. People with mobility issues may find the stairs interesting.

Being two females travelling alone to Egypt, my friend and I had all the typical words of caution before setting off on our journey. We did the 10 days in Egypt through Mara House and I cant imagine seeing it any other way! Every step of the way was so well thought out and meticulous. Starting with the communication before leaving with Mara. She had everything so well documented that you knew what to expect every step of the way. Every single transport had a professional and on time driver. Each and every guide was so knowledgable, personable and down to earth. This is huge considering you will be spending a substantial amount of time with these individuals. Mara House itself is absolutely beautiful! From the decor to the spacious rooms, you really felt welcomed and comfortable. The cook is AMAZING, our breakfasts were always perfect and the Salahadeen Feast was to DIE for! The manager of Mara House is such an amazing human.. Mara really picked the perfect people to run things for her. You can trust that if you do this tour you will be well taken care of. Go see Egypt and experience it for all of its beauty and gracious people!

My husband and I just spent three days and nights with Mara House in Luxor. We can't say enough wonderful things about the staff, the rooms and the location. Each room is its own large apartment/suite with a sitting room, balcony, kitchenette, a wet room bath, very comfy beds, laundry services, and AC. Also provided is very fast Wi-Fi!

Because Mara House curates the experience for you with the best Luxor has to offer, they helped us with transportation (we had the best drivers!), hooked us up with a guide (Mohammad was fabulous!!) and every morning Mara House manager Ahmed was there to meet us with a HUGE and delicious breakfast and get us ready for our day, and every evening he was there to help us find the best restaurants Luxor has to offer! He was so amazingly thoughtful as well. We'd mentioned how much we'd loved one of the cheeses provided at breakfast and like magic a couple of boxes showed up in our room for us to take back to the USA with us! He was so very thoughtful! We also were lucky enough to experience their full Egyptian dinner as well. This was by far and away the best meal we'd had while we were in Egypt.

Don't hesitate. If you're in Luxor, this is the place to stay! I can't give Mara House and the staff enough stars!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great to the best of my knowledge. This is a boutique hotel located on a residential street.
