The House of Companions Abydos
I have blogged this on my Luxor News blog when I read about it through Iris. she is a Dutch resident in Luxor and has a blog Hidden Egypt. She reported her visit there and it sounds wonderful.
So now you can actually stay the night there. There are 6 rooms including a triple. The price is 150LE for a single room and 250LE for a double and that includes meals. I have the contact details of the owner Amir and he speaks good English and seems quite friendly.
So now there are more options about visiting Abydos
Road convoy with 90 minutes in the temple
Train travel with half a day in the temple
Overnight with travel there being by road with the convoy or by train.
Isn't great to have some choices at last
