“Nice rooms with large balcony”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

We only stayed in this hotel for an afternoon as we had to take the sleeper train from Luxor back to Cairo. The room was very nice, large bathroom, very comfy bed and large balcony. We could have asked for a nile view room but as we only stayd in the hotel 'to recharge our energy' we had a room with front view of hotel, which is not bad either. We had dinner in the Italian restuarant called 'La Mamma', food was nice. As soon as we came in the reception we were greeted with fresh Hibiscus tea. Very nice reception with friendly staff.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

The location is excellent, right on Nile. The breakfast spread is lavish. The rooms are spacious. The swimming pool is just next to Nile.

Staff is courteous, but presentability has to improve. They prompty replaced the coffee maker in the room when it was not functioning.

On the negative side, the rooms appear a bit jaded for a sheraton property. Small things such as putting slippers in the rooms need to be done as the floors are cold in December and uncarpeted. I missed having a fitness centre in the room.

Overall, considering the price that they charge, it is a good value for money and an experience worth repeating.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Nile view.

The hotel is fine - as others have said its a bit dated but its position is just great on the nile with views of the Valley of the Kings and close to all the things you would want t se in Luxor.
But that isnt the point of this review - my wife, my son and myself went to firstly Cairo and then Luxor in October so prior to most recent troubles, but still things were relatively quiet.
And its no surprise is it when you cant walk a metre outside your hotel before someone tries to hassle you, sell you something, ask if you want a taxi, take your bags etc etc - its just awful and frankly reflects terribly on the culture and the people of the country. I dont like seeing my son being hassled (he is 12) but of course this is done so you have to talk to them. I dont like seeing my wife man-handled
I will give you an example from the Sheraton - we ordered a taxi from the hotel to pick us up from the airport - it didnt arrive but we shared with a nice family who were going to the same hotel.
we got to the hotel and we were hungry so we were instructed to leave the bags at reception and they would be taken to our room whilst we had lunch.
My wife and my son went to the room after lunch and the bags werent there, they were still in reception as soon as she got near them though 3 staff from the hotel immediately arrived from nowhere and started taking the bags to which my wife refused saying that if they were too lazy to move the bags by now there was no need to do so now - of course the reason why they hadnt moved them were clear. If they did that then they wouldnt get a tip.
Now I fully understand that average wages etc are very low but this isnt how to run a hotel, or a country. Ripping off tourists in the end means people wont come back
The antiquities are simply stunning in this country but I for one will not be returning given the attitudes displayed by pretty much everyone. I worry about where the country is heading frankly and the event of the weeks since I came back to England highlights the struggles Egypt will have for the forseeable future

Many thanks for recently staying at the Sheraton Luxor Resort and for taking the time to write your reviews to the TripAdvisors. We are disappointed that we did not entirely meet your expectations this time in particular with the Luggage ,due to misunderstanding from our associates which we apologize for this ,also for the bad attitude from taxi drivers and shops sellers which is sometimes out of our hand.

Hope that above would not effect your impression about Sheraton Luxor Resort, where we are waiting for the honor of welcoming again & again.
Thank you and best regards

This hotel has seen better days, and is not a 5 star hotel by anybody's standards.

The way the hotel has been built, only half the rooms overlook the Nile. We started in a "car park" view room looking the other way - yes that is what the view is. It took a lot of discussion to get moved to a Nile view room You only want to stay here if you have a Nile view room.

As others have said, there is no free wifi anywhere in this hotel. Why do pricey hotels like this feel that they can get away with charging for it?

The food was, again as others have said, "mediocre"

There is a pool right on the bank of the Nile.

Its one redeeming feature is the Nile view and watching the sun set across the other side of the river. But the other half of the rooms would not have offered that experience.

Room Tip: Only accept a Nile view room, the other half of the rooms overlook a not very salubrious car park.

We were expecting more considering the past experiences that we have had with other Sheratons before, but I can say that the overall experience was ok.
The staff is really friendly (I arrived in the hotel around 08:00 am and the check in was only at 14:00, however they arranged me a room with early check-in without any extra charge), the front desk people were always available to help.
The room was pretty decent and the bathroom was spacious and well maintained. On the other hand, most of the facilities of the hotel are really old, the swimming pool area makes you feel you are inside a 70’s movie.
But what they really need to improve is the level of the food in the hotel. The quality of the pool restaurant is below average, very few options and not very well prepared. We basically had sandwiches for 2 days. I didn’t have the chance to try the Italian restaurant (that was only opened for dinner).
If you are looking for a 5-star stay, this is not the place. However if you are looking for a place to have some rest in between the tours with a nice view of the Nile, you would be satisfied.

It seems we did not reach our goal in your case, didn't reach your expectations although sometimes it gets out of our hand and I would like to apologize for this,also we have passed on the information regards to the quality of food in the pool resturant which our Executive Chef is currently looking into.
Hope that above will not effect your loyalty to the Sheraton Luxor Resort

This is a very nice hotel and a good choice if you come to Luxor. Comfortable rooms and spectacular views of the nile from the pool and restaurant. (Only downside of the hotel is the crazy price for internet - 19 Euro per day? What's that all about?).

Highly recommended hotel though.

By the way - if you are worried about coming to Egypt - fear not - the Egyptian people are ready to welcome you. Luxor is safe and the city needs your business. As you know, they have some incredible monuments and artefacts and if you want to avoid the crowds come now!
