an oasis in Luxor

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, clean and well-appointed apartment, part of a small complex built around a quiet and leafy courtyard -- really an oasis to come back to after the noise and hassle of a day of tourism. The west bank is much more relaxed than the east bank heart of luxor, but the action is easily reached by ferry or motor boat (plenty available). The owners are very friendly and helpful and can organise any tour you want in and around Luxor. They offer a good breakfast in the courtyard for only a few euros extra and have a bar where you can buy water, beer etc for no more than you'd pay at the local store. Good places to eat close by.

Being a tourist in Egypt can be a challenge and can be tiring. I recommend Eyehouse as a calm and friendly place to come home to each day.

Extra kosten aan deze woning verbonden

  • 2 of 5

De woning bleek meer te kosten dan we hadden gedacht. Namelijk het ophalen van de luchthaven moesten we betalen. Daarnaast werd ons allerlei kosten in rekening gebracht waar we niet on gevraagd hadden. Zo vroegen we of er na een lange reis die midden in de nacht eindigden of er koud water of liefst een koud biertje in de koelkast lag. Dit werd toen onderweg gekocht en kregen we hier later de rekening van. Bii aankomst was er geen koelkast angesloten en moesten we een volle doos water betalen. En dat allemaal voor een veel te dure prijs. Ook hadden we gevraagd voor informatie en tips over de bezienswaardigheden. Toen bleek dat we de volgende dag op excursie moesten??? Na extra €100,-- te hebben betaald konden we alles afkopen. We hebben ons geintimideerd gevoeld.Dus voordat je met deze mensen in zee gaat ( een zekere Osman) realiseer je dan dat deze je op extra kosten jaagt. Behalve geen drinkwater voor de eerste dag was er ook geen afwasmiddel e.d. in het huis aanwezig en hebben we 2 weken in de zelfde lakens gelegen. Dankzij de buurvrouw hebben we extra dekens en handdoeken gekregen. Een veel te duur huis met slechte service en extra onkosten die van te voren niet worden vermeld.
