This is one of the most memorable hotels I've stayed in and a fantastic base to explore Luxor. It is not your typical Hilton as its privately owned but retained the brand name. The stand out features were the beautiful decor, incredible service and the attention to detail.
The hotel is really beautiful, extremely well maintained and clean. The pool areas are wonderful and have great views over the Nile. Great service around the pool area with complimentary ice creams and fruit skewers brought around my staff. The service is of a very high standard and very warm and genuine.
We had a Nile view room which had, as to be expected, a beautiful view, particularly at sunset. Room is slightly on the smaller side but beautifully presented.
The selection at breakfast is fantastic and has a lovely balance of traditional and western options. I absolutely loved the homemade and freshly cooked falafels, Arabic bread and tahini. We ate dinner in each of the restaurants. The best was the Arabic food out by the water. Had some delicious meze and fish and enjoyed the atmosphere with the sitar player.
Other facilities... I used the gym a few times which is well equipped, very quiet and has a lovely view over the Nile. We also had a cocktail lesson at the bar which was good fun. There is quite a good selection of DVDs to borrow at reception as well. Didn't use the spa as unfortunately that was on the more pricey side. We only used the shuttle bus once but it was good.
Recommendations for Luxor.. The hot air balloon trip was fantastic. We had a private guide for touring the tombs which was definitely worth it. The only disappointing thing was our guide took us to a papyrus shop as we said we were interested in buying some and it turned out he took a big back hander as we over paid. However our taxi driver for the holiday, who goes by the name "Mr Chips" got some of our money back as he saw what was going on. Mr Chips was fantastic and it's definitely worth asking reception for him - honest, friendly and good value for money!
