The extensive grounds, vast swimming pool, Nile-side location, extremely comfortable beds and friendly staff continue to please us greatly. The hotel is pretty empty because tourists are put off by their perception that Luxor might be a dangerous place to visit. This just isn't so.

We stayed here for a week wanted peace and quiet in the beautiful gardens and that is what we got. Hotel can cater for 650 people but only 100 max because of downturn in tourism This very sad for everyone and I don't see it improving. We have traveled all over Egypt in the 20 years that we have been... More

The staff were fantastic, really helpful and friendly. Food was consistently excellent and fresh.

Our first trip to Egypt was all we could have hoped for and it's more than partly down to staying in this fabulous hotel. Everything about it was good or excellent and that's a big plus when you're travelling to a country you're unsure of. All the hotels in Luxor are massive but I think this one has a better... More

Ok for a short stay maximum two nights. The dinner buffet is terrible. No other choice in the restaurant. Limited bar snacks. Room service menu is the best but again a limited choice. The pool is no longer heated in March it was chilly. Under the Sofitel management the standard of food was much better & the pool was heated.... More

Very impressed with this hotel. They have some nice restaurants right in the lobby of the hotel. We enjoyed a great meal for a very reasonable price. A buffet style restaurant also looked good across the lobby. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Great shower after a day of seeing the sights and the pool overlooks the Nile. Wi-Fi is... More
