We went for my 50 th birthday and I couldn't have picked a better hotel for our stay. Lovely location overlooking the Nile. Rooms were nice (although ours did look over the waterworks next door). Stunning foyer to the hotel. Going against the reps advice we did take a ride on the karresh. Was great. Just confirm the price for the carriage per hour in whichever currency. We also hooked up with a taxi driver who took us around the real Luxor. Fab great restaurants. The lantern was our favourite. The puddle ducks is good as is taste of the Nile. Don't eat dinner at the winter palace it was the worse meal we had. The sites are ace. Don't just sit Staround the pool (gorgeous as it is). We'll definitely be going back again.
