“Make sure to get a room in the refurbished part”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

We stayed a few days in this hotel including the new year party. The hotel has "older rooms, which are centred around the pool" and a newer, refurbished tower which provides for "Nile view". The later are much nicer. My rating is based on these rooms. This probably also explains the difference in rating of some of the reviewers. The breakfast is pretty good. For dinner there are several better ( higher rated) options in town, like "Puddleduck". The taxi ride to town should cost 25 EP.

We have been to Luxor many times and we used to stay at the winter palace pavillion. I tried to book a holiday at the pavillion a couple of years ago but could not find one at the times I wanted to go so we opted for the El Luxor. I was a little unsure as anybody who has stayed at the W/Palace will tell you that place is beautiful. Anyway back to the plot. we loved the El Luxor granted it is not a plush as the W/palace and doesn't have the 5 stars but the staff alone at the El Luxor make it a far nicer place to stay. Ali is the man who makes it all tick he cannot do enough for any of the guests. when i needed a dentist he told me where to go and even offered to take me. when we wanted to buy a specific electrical item he told us the best places to go. He is great at what he does and nothing is ever too much trouble for him. The bar staff are great jabba is a nut and really makes it a fun time. the Hotel is in a great position on the cornich over looking the nile and handy for just about anything or anywhere you want. my wife and I have now been to the El Luxor for the last 4 visits to Luxor and will be going again this year .Eddie and Julie O'Reilly

We stayed here for one night at the last minute - the manager and staff were very accommodating and helpful and the room was very comfortable.
The food and drink offering was good, delivered with a smile.

The El Luxor,is,in my opinion ,the best of hotels in Luxor.It's not 5 star but the staff are lovely.It'sother advantage is it's centrality compared to most of the others.Only a few hundred metres from the Museum and ferry, a pleasant 1 kilometre walk from Karnak and easy stroll to the Souk,the Avenue of Sphinxes and the duty free shop(48 hours to buy imported goods but Egyptian goods anytime without passport.)Lovely,quiet garden and swimming pool.I've tried them all and like many others have been a regular here for many years

Room Tip: I like main building,garden side but they have 2 types of Nile View rooms-straightforward and posh!!

I stayed at the el luxor this december for a week. I got a really excellent deal online for a room with a nile view. The room was recently refurbished and was spacious with a comfortable bed flatscreen tv and marble floors and bathroom.For the price I paid I have to say it was one of the best deals I have ever had and I don't think anyone could really be disappointed. It was located on the corniche with easy access to all the historical sights and museums. Tourism is currently disrupted in the region because of the political situation but Luxor is perfectly safe and this is a great time to go because there are some fantastic deals on hotels and day trips. Lovely blue skies not a cloud in sight and 23 degrees everyday in December. Who could wish for more

Room Tip: Take a nile view on the 3rd floor

We went with Thomas Cook for 2 weeks, the staff were very good especially Ali the entertainment guy, he was always friendly and helpful. The room was lovely although a little jaded and old fashioned, we wanted a Nile view, a bit more noisy but we sat on the balcony and watched the world go by, we also had a view of the bustling river, the ferries and the whole of the West bank area. The Buffet breakfast was good with loads of choices, The egg man was lovely and did any choice of egg you wanted. We mainly ate out and found the best Restaurant in Luxor, The Oasis Palace out the front door turn right then right again to top of road on right, the owner Romani is great and the food is excellent, do try it. The Hotel is in a great position between Luxor & Karnac Temples, between the 2 museums and near the town centre. The best and cheapest balloon trip was taken for the man with Viking in the Hotel, he was a lovely guy and gives a very good deal. If you go out the front door turn left walk past the Government building, the first shop is Harrys, they are the cheapest for water etc. and will get anything you want, they are lovely. David Hird

My husband and I stayed at this hotel in November this year; the staff were very unfriendly and food very limited. On the last day before we were due to fly home we were attacked by the owner of a small boat on the Nile called "Nile Smiles". We gave him extra money, more than we agreed but he wanted more, it was very frightening. We reported it to the hotel but they did not want to know. We told other guests about what happened and discovered a woman at the hotel was also attacked by the same owner a few days before us. We would not recommend this hotel or boat to anyone.

Room Tip: If you like a good view then a room overlooking the Nile would be a good choice, but bear in mind th...
