“Three Nights at the El Fayrouz”
Reviewed 20 March 2012

In November, 2011, we stayed three nights at the El Fayrouz, prior to our cruise to Aswan. The price is right. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and plesant. The location on the West Bank is a five-minute walk from the Nile, and the ferry to the East Bank. We were in the company of well-educated, well-traveled people who value a dollar. The garden resturant was a real plus and the food was excellent. It was a very relaxing place to stay.

Room Tip: We requested a room overlooking the garden, however I didn't see even one automobile

Excellent experience staying at Hotel El Fayrouz. Tucked away in a narrow lane just across the West Bank. This was a great find. The location is excellent just a two min walk down to the Nile to catch a boat to the East Bank to visit the major sights.

The rooms were simple but tastefully decorated, bathrooms were decent and maintained.
The place had a nice outdoor area a garden/patio in one could call where we found find ourselves every evening eating and playing board games and being attended to by the ever
gracious staff, excellent service and decent breakfast aswell.

All this at a very affordable price, a definite top pick for the budget conscious!

We stayed at the El Fayrouz after having arrived in Luxor on a Nilecruise. Of course, the East Bank at Luxor is extremely interesting regarding sights (Karna Temple is a must see), but getting away from the tourist chase and leaving towards the West Bank was a very relaxing experience. The hotel is situated in a nice quiet area with friendly little shops.
The hotel staff arranged bikes for us to rent and we visited the Valley of the Kings and the Tombs of the Nobles on our own.
Food in the garden restaurant was excellent.

As there is not a separate place to review hotel's outdoor restaurant I will add it here. I just have to, the restaurant must be one of the best on the west bank. Large menu, lots of delicious food to choose. Service is fast, friendly and for the food I will definitely go again and again. My Egyptian husband said also that the food is great. Also the settings are beautiful and the place is very peacefull. Price is cheap when you think the quality. I think kofta was 27 LE. They also serve beer.

What we liked best about this hotel was that it is located in a family neighbor, just down the street from a mosque. We didn't feel like we were staying in a touristy area but in a regular Egyptian town with real people. Our room was very basic, but immaculately clean and spacious, attached to a bathroom with a nice hot shower. All of the staff genuinely friendly, down to earth, and professional. No hassles at all for tips. And in the hotel's outdoor restaurant, I had no problem finding tasty vegetarian meals. We also enjoyed meeting a very friendly and interesting local man and his Italian wife during dinner on New Year's Eve. My husband and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: If cigarette smoke bothers you, ask for a room on the highest floor. The "Hassan Fathi" st...
