Amon Hotel - West Bank recommendation
We stayed 8 nights (December 2019). Despite arriving after 9pm, food was available and we chose the set meal, a freshly-prepared feast of soup, salad, main, rice, side and dessert (150 LE), served in the delightful garden. The food was so good, we quickly decided to eat here every evening. After a busy day exploring, it was great to relax with a wonderful meal and a drink (alcohol available), the menu changing daily. Breakfast was also very copious. Our simple room had an en suite shower and toilet and the great advantage of hot water and free wi-fi 24/7. Our balcony overlooked the garden, and there was a large ceiling fan. The room was cleaned daily, bed linen and towels changed every other day. Every afternoon we came back to find a little surprise. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive, yet also discreet. There was always someone available if needed. The managers are keen to help in any way, including changing large notes for small ones – essential for taxis, tips, etc. Other benefits include: check-in available 24 hours, breakfast included in the reasonable overnight rate, other meals served from lunch until 10pm. The hotel is only 12 minutes’ walk from the ferry, and taxis are easily found nearby. The West Bank is much quieter than the East Bank and people are friendly. The Amon offers very good value for money. On our last day, we left very early, and were given a substantial breakfast box. If we return to Luxor, we shall definitely stay at the Amon.
