Venus Hotel Luxor
Lonely Planet review
The 25 rooms at the Venus are quite noisy and shabby, but there is a fun atmosphere in the hotel, which is still popular with budget tours. All rooms have clean private bathrooms, and most have air-con. There is a great rooftop terrace and a lively bar (Stella beer E£12).
Our independent authors have visited Venus Hotel Luxor and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nile Valley: Luxor.
