We stayed at the Pavillion Winter, which is in the Winter Palace Complex between the 10th and 22nd of April 2013. Yet again, the weather was wonderful and the service in the hotel was exceptional. They are even putting in ramps around the pool for disabled guests.
The problem in the area is that there are not enough tourists. I can only assume that its because travellers are frightened as to their security, but please WORRY NOT as everything is exactly as it was 5 years ago. Yes, there is a bit more hassle as competition for the tourist pound is intense, but a polite no and avoiding eye contact does the trick.
We are going back in October, so COME ON YOU BRITS, come back to Luxor, you will get the warmest of welcomes
