I have nothing but fond memories of this hotel. A peaceful oasis on the banks of the Nile with beautifully manicured gardens and friendly attentive staff.
The rooms are not quite five star by European standards but clean and functional. Similarly, the self service restaurant offered a fairly limited choice of fairly repetitive dishes. One notable exception was the standard of pastries which was usually very good.
Everything else about the hotel is first class. It’s a place to wind down and relax rather than anything else. Apart from the historical sites in the vicinity, there is little else to do. A shuttle service into town is available but Luxor doesn’t have much to offer and the locals tend to hassle tourists excessively.
