TravelPod Member ReviewsHorus Hotel Luxor
I would advise not to stay here especially if you are to get up early for the trip to Abu Simbel in the morning. There is a nightclub on the top floor that is open all night and into the morning. It is very loud. I stay in hostels all the time so I am used to the odd noise now and again but this was just too much. On the good side was the price and you get a room with your own bathroom.

the school. He then returned to become ...

BUT, it'll all be worth it. It will. I just need to keep telling myself that.
... up – you should always follow your instincts in these situations and so we moved on. Ron and I would have rescued the girls I’m sure after the third beer.
We dined on pizza at an Italian restaurant within the hotel and then called it a night. Music was blaring from the Hotel’s Square that had entertainment for the Egyptian holiday and many locals in party mode.
It was still blaring when Malani ...
... expands when it comes into contact with water. This has damaged many tombs, particularly during floods. The paintings on the walls were all quite preserved and although empty we could really understand the antechambers were used for by our newly acquired understanding of hieroglyphics. We then set out for our guide Peter's favourite Queen, Hatsheput. She was the most innovative of all of the Pharaohs and quite politically savvy, clever and inventive. ...
... this is probably the best aspect of doing a tour, we have had him all to ourselves and have been given a full run down of everything there is to know about the places we have visited, he also comes in handy by shooing off all the hagglers for us. The local beer 'Stella' also lives up to its name, a far more pleasant drop to what I was expecting, oh and I also thought I'd never see something worse than a Chinese squatter..... But I now have, an Egyptian squatter! Eeerrrrdeennn ...
