This is the third time now that I have stayed at this hotel and it never lets me down. After having stayed in the majority of hotels in Luxor, I can definitely say that this is the best one in the area. The rooms are comfortable and clean, with housekeeping that prides itself on creating wonderful and dynamic sculptures with... More

I stayed here for a week in November 2012 with a group and enjoyed a very unique experience. After visiting some of the nearby temples and sacred sites I felt totally enlightened with the most profound ancient knowledge available about Egypt. The roof top terrace was a special place to relax and do some meditation as well as being an... More

Do you want a really good experience of what a hotel in Egypt should be like? Then this is the place for you. It's not one of your Western-type hotels with swimming pool and fitness centre that could be anywhere in the world. It's a place that shows the best of Egypt in atmosphere and friendliness. A great deal of... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over New Years Eve whilst in Luxor and very much enjoyed everything about it and would happily return. I spent a long time researching where to stay and with other positive reviews and deciding on the quieter west bank location decided on this one. We are very pleased we stayed on the west bank,...

Stayed here for 3 nights and was really really disappointed with the place given the earlier reviews on trip advisor and will try my best to articulate it. We had no water and no hot water when we arrived after a long trip and my friend had to take a cold shower after the water was restored. Toilet drainage was... More

I will answer each of the guest’s complaints one by one. 1. The problem with the water and electricity was a problem throughout the whole area when the guests arrived. It would have been the same in any hotel they went to on the West Bank, and unfortunately , this is now a widespread problem for the whole of Egypt.... More

The best thing about this hotel is its beautiful traditional architecture, it has fantastic paintings all over the stairs and sitting area, they depict illustrations from the stories of Arabian Nights. Pros: [*] They can arrange local tours on cab. It's really close from Colossi of Memnon, Ramasseum. [*] We liked the restaurant a lot - it was in the... More

We had a great stay at Hotel Sheherazade on Luxor's West Bank. The staff were very friendly from check-in to check-out, and helped us organise a car for the day to visit the Valley of the Kings etc for a reasonable price. The food was also good and they have a lovely garden to dine in. The owner, Mohammed, was... More

My time in Egypt was very special indeed and I felt most welcome during my stay at Hotel Sheherazade. All the staff were great! Extremely helpful and accommodating, they provided a very personal service and were on hand at all times, day or night. The hotel surroundings were spacious, airy and light. I treasured sitting up on the roof terrace... More

This is a super friendly place that understand great service. Clean and elegantly simple rooms, some with beautifully architectural ceilings, lovely roof top and ground floor garden hang out areas, very good food and help with anything you wanted to know was on offer. The West Bank is much less 'touristy' than the East Bank and I would highly recommend... More

Hotel Sheherazade is ideally located far from crowds & noise, an oasis of calm in a green & shady garden. The building, in the style of Hassan Fathy, reflects the designs evoked in The Book of a Thousand and One Nights, Sheherazade being the name of the beautiful storyteller. As well as local tours, the hotel is pleased to offer desert safaris and Nile cruises on its own sailing boat, Sindbad. ... more   less
