I have recently returned from my first visit to The Sonesta St George which was recommended to me by two ladies who regularly travel to Luxor and who particularly like this hotel. I always travel alone and saved £300 taking up my holiday package with Thomas Cook instead of Thomson this time!. The single supplement was worth every penny; my large and very comfortable side Nile view room was on the South side with a wonderful view of the river and West Bank, bathed in Sunshine all day. Everywhere was kept nice and clean, the staff were friendly and efficient, food was good with plenty of choice. The swimming pool is beautiful and there are two jacuzzis nearby which were thoroughly cleaned out once during the week and there is plenty of room to sunbathe around the pool or on the deck overlooking the Nile. The position is nice and central for walking into town, just do the camel as recommended by Linda our lovely tour rep. ie. just look nonchantly from side to side and don't speak to anybody and you get there in a fraction of the time with no hassle. I will definately chose this hotel for my next visit.
