We stayed for 1 night in November off our cruise ship. We had an overnight in the port of Safaga, and decided to stay in a hotel in Luxor rather than on the ship.The drive one way is 3 hours from Safaga to Luxor. We had both a buffet breakfast and lunch at the hotel with a great selection of items. We did not go away hungry! We had a view of the Nile from our room and could see the hot air balloons in the morning from our balcony. Both Bedroom and bathroom were a nice size. If you wanted the use of a coffee maker for your room or wifi, there was an additional cost. We thought the location was central with many other hotels in the area. We took a sunset boat ride from the hotel which was beautiful. The pool area looked very nice and tables had been set up below for a dinner function later that evening.
