I have just had another great stay at the Sonesta, depite the obvious difficulties. The only downside was having to eat in more than I would have because the banks were closed and we needed to put the meals on the bill.
The breakfasts are brilliant but the restaurants are not that good and over priced for the quality of the food. I much prefer eating out in the many nearby restaurants.
A great deal of money has been spent in recent years on extending the hotel upwards. It's a shame that some of that money was not spent on refurbishing the rooms up to floor 5. Each room I was in had a faulty balcony door lock but it was fixed immediately I informed reception.
As a previous reviewer has said, we had to change rooms so that the electric supply could be cut off to the higher floors. the chandelier was also switched of, which was a bit depresssing.
I tried the spa for the first time. The staff were excellent, but this is also one place that really does need attention. It is grubby in places, the showers and the steam room in particular.
Other than that, everywhere is kept very clean and it one of the most welcoming hotels I have ever stayed in. I would always recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Luxor.
