Curious about the real Egypt?  Wondering what daily life is like here?  Then Mara House is what you are looking for.  Located behind the train station, only a 15 min walk from Luxor Temple, Mara House is nothing like a regular hotel – apart from the fact that we give you a bed and feed you.  Mara House is not on the tourist strip.

The decor is somewhat reminiscent of what you might have found in a rather grand Egyptian family home perhaps a hundred years ago.  Amr – the House Manager is also our amazing chef.  You could give him a dish and by his taste alone he would shortly reproduce it.  Having said that – our food is traditional, healthy and wholesome Egyptian/Middle Eastern cuisine which Amr learned mostly from his mother at a very young age.  Amr has been at Mara House for over 12 years.  He takes care of it and our guests like they are his own.

RESTAURANT:

Amr’s Salahadeen Feast took us to #1 on TripAdvisor when our restaurant was open to the public.  These days we reserve the Feast for our in-house guests only.

ROOMS:

Your accommodation is not only a hotel room – it is a suite. It contains between 1 -3 bedrooms, a private sitting room and bathroom (shower, no bath). Our beds are comfortable, our water is hot and our standard of cleanliness/hygiene in all areas of the house is first class.

ROOF TERRACE:

Mara House has a sun terrace filled mostly with cacti and bougainvillea where you can relax and it is especially enjoyable at night. We always have clear skies so if you like star-gazing you will truly enjoy this space.

SIGHTSEEING:

We have been helping our guests organise their sightseeing since 2005.  While we are happy to have you stay at Mara House without taking our tours, I have no problem saying you will be missing out on meeting our exceptional Egyptologist – Mohamed Ahmed.

ACCOMMODATION & TOUR PACKAGE
