Great for excavation missions - Review of Flats in Luxor, Luxor, Egypt - TripAdvisor

Great for excavation missions - Review of Flats in Luxor, Luxor, Egypt - TripAdvisor: I have stayed in the Al Gezera flats several times in the past, including 9 weeks this past Summer. The location is fantastic, particularly for those wishing to explore the historical sites of the West Bank or who may be part of an excavation team. Most of the sites are just 5 minutes away by local service car. The the flats are self-catering but their are several good restaurants nearby, in addition to some shops for groceries (Mr Atta's bakery shop being particularly worth visiting). One of the advantages of the flats is the wonderful view overlooking the Theban hillside. From your balcony you can sit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Looking forward to returning new season for a longer period of time!
