Flats in Luxor (Luxor, Egypt) TripAdvisor 103rd review

Flats in Luxor (Luxor, Egypt) - Condominium Reviews - TripAdvisor: Just returned from 3 weeks in Egypt which included a 3 nights stay in Luxor in Jane's flats. We are a family of 3 including a 11 years old boy and this was our first visit to Egypt. The flats we stayed in were clean and spacious and the pool was a real treat at the end of hot sweaty days. The units were kept safe and were well maintained and every time we were seen aiming for the pool, someone was always there to make sure it was clean. The view from the two balconies was amazing particularly taking into account the otherwise business of Luxor. Banana fields with the rising of the sun and the Valley of the Kings at sun set.A real little oasis !
The staff employed by Jan were fantastic, each one of us were touched by their attention to our needs, including when our son got sick and remedies were prepared as well as trips to the chemist facilitated.
Jane was instrumental in helping us plan the days and her enthusiasm in all things Egyptian meant that we packed a lot into our days. She recommended the guide and provided a driver that we were able to relay on. Her recommended guide was knowledgeable and showed great pride in the history of his country and his profession, he was humble and kind and by the end of the 4th tour we did respond to his call... " lets go my family". The driver was well versed in all things in Luxor and by mid morning his sense of humor was well awaken. At the end of each tour day we were treated with an amazing lunch prepared by the chef and served beautifully wherever we wanted it, mostly by the pool. We also had dinner at the units and the food recommended was fantastic.
As a family we would highly recommend the quieter side of Luxor particularly if you dont intend to spend too much time in the center of the town. It took me 20min brisk walking to the Nile to catch a ride into East Luxor otherwise the car trip into town is a good 30min. The walk is lovely however and worth the stroll at any time.
