“5 star but comfortably so”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I’ve stayed a few times at the Sonesta as part of a larger group with an interest in Egyptology. I love it there. It’s 5 star with the beautiful marble and chandeliers but is not overpoweringly so, it’s comfortable. When we do short trips to other parts of Egypt we feel like we’re coming home when we return to the Sonesta. The breakfast staff are personable and it’s a pleasure to be greeted cheerily by Waafa. Michel is the best for looking after us on the pontoon - the pool area with loungers and tables. I’m already planning my next stay there. I can’t wait.

I was very happy with staff at the sonesta as was I with the cleanliness and fantastic banter had by the staff on site. Once i stepped outside different story, me and my boyfriend flew back to base camp. Unfortunately the aggressive and intimidating behavior over rode the pleasant ness of hotel... Please the restaurants onsite were phenomenal and I would class myself a serious foodie... the seafood restaurant 5 star xx great weather 40 plus min in october

Last year was our first visit to the Sonesta - previously we had stayed at a neighbouring hotel. We have been so impressed by the hotel's achievement of its key objective of providing high quality "professional yet personal" service that this will be our hotel of choice for future annual visits to Luxor. We cannot praise the hotel and its staff highly enough!

This is one of the best hotels in Sonesta. It is right next to the river. It has couple of good restaurants. River facing rooms are very nice. The outdoor restaurant is very active and atmosphere is very nice. We had a lovely time though it was short.

We have been to Luxor many times and have stayed in quite a few of the better hotels until we found the Sonesta...we have never stayed anywhere else since....that was many years ago and we never thought of writing a review until now as we wanted it to be our little secret,but its obvious by the many reviews on here that its not such a big secret after all.Stay once,and you will want to return.Stay more than once and you become part of the Sonesta "family" Every member of staff will remember you and treat you like a long lost relative,how they do it is uncanny.Standards are high here and have remained so over the years we have stayed,and a good sign of any hotel is that the staff remain as well,which means they are also happy working for the Sonesta. Happy staff=happy guests and that just about sums it up. Everybody at the Sonesta will do their best to please you and answer any issues you may have...but you need to ask and not just moan about it around the pool,leaving the hotel unaware of your problem.They are not mind readers after all...I have noticed in a previous review that it was said the Sonesta looks after its new guests better than regulars,but I have to say I have not found that to be the case at all and we are always upgraded when we get there from what we have actually booked and there is always a large bowl of fruit and other titbits left in our room the next day...Ok,so everything is not perfect,and there is no kettle unless its paid for at $35 a week and the wi fi is far too expensive at 55le(about £5.50) per hour but we solve the problem by bringing our own small travel kettle and use the internet across the road for less than a £1 per hour if we need to......there again, we go on holidays to enjoy Egypt and get away from it all and not be checking emails etc...but it would be nice to have it free in the hotel. The extras and upgrades we get from the management more than makes up for these minor details.

Room Tip: Rooms on the left get the sunset view,but on the right you get the lovely mountain view across the N...

This is our second visit. We like the location and the front of house are so helpful with always a smile.
The rooms are clean and well cared for. We arrived late in the evening on boxing night after Egypt air had left one of our suitcases in Cairo. I believe this is a regular happening but the reception noted this and when the luggage arrived helped to get us back to the airport to pick it up.
We then upgraded our room to the 6th floor a very nice suite with a beautiful view of the Nile and a stunning bathroom.
Breakfasts were plentiful so much so my husband had difficulty having only one egg as the chef appeared not able to count 1 only2.
Evening meals were sometimes eaten in the Japanese restaurant thanks Emad and company. We enjoyed a couple of meals in the Italian restaurant which had improved on last year. Thanks.
Around the pool the service was as good as usual and the shade was always arranged when necessary. Thank you Sonesta.

Our room had a balcony from which we could contemplate the Nile, and hot air balloon rides. Everything about this hotel says First Class. Our Egyptian son in law said former Pres. Mubarak would stay here on trips to Luxor. A wonderful included buffet breakfast; sit out on the veranda overlooking the pool area. And Enjoy Luxor!
