Al Baeirat Hotel
Ranked #5 of 33 Luxor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 January 2015

I know this hotel and i have been there several times. It is a piece of paradise on earth and the staff is absolutely friendly as it is to be expected in a very hospitable country like Egypt. I was shocked as i read this negative report. Egypt is a moslem country that prohibits any form of sexual contact between egyptian couples and between egyptians and non-egyptians without marriage (this rule does not apply to foreighn couples) . Especially homosexuality is detested as it is stated in the Quran. It is a respectless behaviour showing disrespect against moslem religious believes of Egypt. I do not believe any single word of this very negative report as i know the country, i know the people of the country and i know what it means, bieing a guest in Egypt. It is honourless for egyptians to beat their guests.

The staff accused us of being gay and told us to leave, they had six to eight men that made us leave and called us names that I can't put on here, They are very homophobic and aggressive.

As they were throwing us out two of the men tried to punch us in the face.

The setting is lovely but if you are a westerner and even slightly different to them do not stay there.

We were fortunate enough to have a car and this was our escape. We went to the tourist Police to complain and they lied accusing if finding us naked.

They are not nice people, and the attitude of the people was really bad.

I've never known anything like it to be beaten and thrown from a hotel for doing absolutely nothing wrong.

Al Baeirat.
It is a window on Egypt and Egyptian life, the hotel is based on the West Bank and away from the main hotel areas.
The Owner and staff are excellent, nothing is an issue to them.
Food is fresh, local and so tasty.
Luxor is very underestimated at the moment, it is safe and a wonderful holiday area.
Go and try for the real Egypt and not the obvious resort area`s.
Al Baeirat is special.

Passing through Luxor on a road trip across the country, I did not want to stay on the east bank with all the hustle and bustle and harrassment. We discovered this gem through trip advisor.

Staff is super friendly from the moment they answered our phone call. Very helpful in helping us plan our short stay. They hooked us with a fantastic guide for a tour around the tombs and temples in the west bank.

The hotel itself is comprised of huge bungalows! spacious rooms with two beds, a SPACIOUS bathroom... like a small house just for you! Air conditioned and with complementary fruits that are grown in their OWN GARDEN!

The setting is fantastic with its garden straight on the nile. Offering great views across the day with a very nicely situated pool (was too cold for me to take a swim since we visited in November).

Food is fantastic and tastes very well. Home cooked tajins are a must try.

Only reason i'm giving a 4 not a 5 is that given the places i visited in Egypt, i think they are slightly over priced. But even if i paid a little more, i was more than satisfied with my stay and the quality of it.

Room Tip: A room towards the front would be nice to avoid long walks to the restaurant and the Nile view

Definitely by far the best place that I have got to know in Luxor !! The rooms are in spacious and lovely bungalows. Beautiful swimming pool bordering to the Nile. Great view from the restaurant and garden on the Nile, with always fresh and great food. Staff and hotel owner are very friendly and helpful. It is located on the eastbank but you can cross the Nile with a private small motorboat any time of the day and night. Great place to visit when you travel alone or with friends and familiy.

My wife and I travel a lot and this is by far one of the best places we've ever stayed. It is not a 5 star resort if that is what you are looking for. What it is - is a true Egyptian experience. The hotel and grounds are absolutely beautiful. It is quiet and located on the west bank on the other side of the Nile from the city itself. The hotel has a boat that will take you back and forth across the river. The owner, Mohammed Omar is one of the best hotel owners I've ever had the pleasure to meet. He would call his taxi driver friend who would be waiting for us on the other side in Luxor when we got off the boat. Mohammed would let him know what we wanted to do or what we were looking for and we would then be taken to real authentic restaurants and specific places within the old market to shop where the locals shop. Working with the owner of the hotel is key to making the best quality purchases of spices, scarves, and jewelry at a great price because these folks are looking to provide you with the best possible experience. you WILL want to come back and stay at this hotel. The food at the hotel's restaurant is exceptional. The owner Mohammed even let me go into the kitchen and work with the chef to learn their amazing chicken curry recipe. The service at this hotel and the people that work there are simply the best I've ever experienced. They have a handle on the proper way to treat guests. More importantly, the kindness we were given was not simply the fact that we were guests. It was genuine and strait from the heart. These people simply be themselves. The way they treat their guests is the way they live their lives. It is truly beautiful. The accomidations are splendid. There are a series of structures similar to a bungalow. I do not know quite how to define it. They are split like a duplex with a locking door dividing the two units. If you have more than two people in your party, they will give you both sides. The construction appears to be Egyptian and Nubian design and is amazing. The owner Mohammed can also arrange just about any type of trip anywhere in Egypt as well. We became very well acquainted with him during our stay and he became one of our most fond memories of our trip. He brought over a bottle of wine to share with us after dinner three nights of the five that we stayed. He even presented a bottle of wine to wife to bring home with us. my wife forgot it and he is sending it to us here in the states. I truly felt at home. Finally, do not believe everything that you hear about safety concerns in Egypt. I am a seasoned traveler. I took my family of five and we were treated to royalty in every way. This was not just in Luxor or at our hotel, but everywhere. American and British media do a very poor job of reporting things that have very little to do with accuracy or general travelers wanting to visit one of the most amazing places on the planet. They do a good job of hurting a wonderful people and culture's primary source of income by spreading fear. Most people believe that the Middle East is nothing but a problem area, which is simply a gross misinterpretation. Please go to Egypt. It was the greatest trip we've ever been on. The Al Baeirat is a must stay place on your trip.

Perfect rural location just opposite Luxor city. Convenient shuttle boat on demand. Charming owner and attentive staff. Spacious apartment like bungalow accomodation with this extra service. Reasonable garden restaurant overlooking the Nile (still, some room to extend the menue); cheerful choice of restaurants next door.
