This place has wonderful staff and pretty good food (ask them to cook you dinner!). But the hotel misses the mark several times. The mattresses and pillows are like concrete, shared bathrooms don't lock and the rooms are ridiculously spartan with no bedside table or lamp.

A cheap hotel up a back street. About 10 minutes walk from Luxor Temple. Rooms are very basic. Only a few rooms with onsuites. Not much in rooms other than two twin beds and a stool. Two shared bathrooms per floor. Very noisy hotel as a Mosque is only a few metres away. Fan in room. Room was not cleaned... More

The hotel is cheap and central but the manager lets the place down. Things that should have been simple to fix we're left until the guests complained. Everytime he "arranged" a trip it failed to fully meet the promises. Chose another hotel.

The manager provide very hospitality, and very good service to any trip planing and transportation informations. He helps me a lot from the beginning to the end, and he even sees me off in the train station. If u want to go to luxor for a nice trip, u should go the princess hotel and find the manager! His name... More

Princess hotel is great. We received a warm welcome and the staff helped us eagerly with finding tours and giving tips. They have good connections to do a tour to Valley of the Kings and Queens, as well as a balloon tour over Luxor. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were really clean. Thank you for everything! Kind regards from... More

In early-mid October 2011 I stayed at Princess Hotel with my 11-yo nephew for 5 days. This was one of our cheapest stays on our trip and yet the room was spacious, with air-con, the en suite bathroom had sufficient hot water and at good pressure and the staff were very helpful in all sorts of ways. They helped us... More

The location was ideal for walking around Luxor. The management and staff were accommodating and friendly. Older women seem to be of great interest to the management and can be a target for soliciting money from them to help them out because of the lack of tourism. This, however this is quite common in other hotels as well. Be careful... More

we stayed here from the 2-9 march just after the travel restrictions to egypt were changed, and so the hotel was completely empty. it would be completely different at a busier time. the location was on the east bank, a short walk from the train station, and not much further from luxor temple. however it was down a few back...

Was brought here by the minibus from the Aswan-Luxor felluca trip. I wasn't initially going to get off but once I heard the prices and figured other places were close by, figured I may as well. They didn't have a single room available but knocked off LE10 from a double so I took it. The room wasnt much but it... More
