Luxor Guest House
Lonely Planet review
This place is like a dinosaur surrounded by modern animals, but in a good way. The Luxor is the only truly budget place in the city, and possibly in the country. The rooms are airy and spacious, with painted wood-board ceilings and little balconies. The bathrooms are mostly shared, and there are no cooking facilities apart from a small breakfast kitchen.
This dying breed of budget accommodation may soon be altogether extinct, since the owner, who complains of a serious lack of independent travellers, is thinking of converting the place and raising the prices.
