“Authentic and Memorable Egypt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

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 staying on this side of the river if you want a more real, more friendly and less hassled experience.

The hotel staff were excellent, they looked after me so well and arranged any outings/trips that I asked for, they also suggested alternatives.

The rooms were cleaned daily and the staff prided themselves on what they achieved, different towel sculptures daily too.

The setting of the Hotel is in a quiet area of the westbank, close to shops and restaurants and also to the ferry terminal should you wish to explore in Luxor itself.

The food was cooked freshly as you ordered it and served in a lovely peaceful garden.

The view from the roof terrace was stunning.

I would definitely stay here again, the staff are so friendly and helpful.

From the moment I checked in I knew I had come to the right place. The warm and friendly welcome was the start of a special week with experiences of Egypt increasing to magical levels day by day. Service was outstanding at anytime of day or night and all the staff were genuinely happy to be of service. The authentic food dishes were delicious and well presented.
Sitting quietly on the roof terrace taking in the wonderful views created a peaceful tranquillity.
I can honestly say that I had an experience of a lifetime and will definitely be returning.

As always even better than my previous stays....hotel, service, food and perfect extra tours and trips were created by a brilliant staff and team. Anything and everything you ask for is created. It is a brilliant base on the West Bank- my group of sixteen loved every minute. It just takes you right away from boring tourism...into a unique West bank experience to see more of real and authentic Egypt life. It was fantastic. I am visiting next month again...the kindness of the hotel is incredible..the service more than five star!

Hotel Sheherazade is a welcoming, clean and well looked after hotel, full of charm and efficiently run by a dedicated staff who are always happy to help. My room was spotless and I loved the fun ways my daily clean towels were folded like origami - an original design each day! Brilliantly located close to the river on the west bank, I loved sitting on the roof overlooking the Nile and listening to the call to prayer each day. A really wonderful stay and I would choose this hotel again.
