“Pyramisa Isis Hotel and Suites Luxor, Egypt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We enjoyed (wife and I) our 2-night stay at the Pyramisa prior to embarking on a 7-day Nile cruise to the Aswan dam and back. Upon our return we again stayed at the same hotel.
There is free wi-fi in the lobby, which is important to me as the rates in the room (and on the cruise boat) were pretty expensive (56 LS, or about $9, per hour).
We ate the buffet breakfast, which is quite adequate, but opted to eat at the Italian restaurant for dinner. The Italian restaurant is simply cordoned off from the buffet area by screens, but with a menu,. The food was excellent. I get the impression that the building housing the original Italian restaurant is closed because there are very few tourists due to much adverse publicity about Egypt in the news.
In example, we were told that of the 400 cruise boats normally working the Nile, only 35 to 40
are presently in service.
We found no reason that we should not have visited Egypt. There is absolutely no trouble here in Luxor, but it is a good time to visit because the Nile is not crowded, nor are the hotels.

We were lucky to have Dr. Waleed, and Egyptologist, as our guide during the 7-day cruise, as he is much more versed in the history of the ancient tombs and monuments than than is the average tour guide.

Twice a year I visit this hotel and the city of Luxor with pleasure, for about 25 years. Once again I'd like to point out that life in Luxor goes on as usual, and is not to compare with Tahrir Square in Cairo. So do not hesitate to visit and book for Upper Egypt, where all is at ease, be sure.
As a result all hotels in Luxor have a low room occupancy. Despite that the Pyramisa Isis hotel in Luxor is clean and in order on every spot. I 've noticed that the dinner buffet is of very good quality, despite the small number of guests. As usual there was a warm and sincerely welcome for me, by all waiting staff members. Wish for them and the hotel more guests and more work!
My next booking for this hotel: november 2013, with all pleasure!

Room Tip: Rooms on the street/city side are more noisy, because of the traffic and the mosque prayer calls nea...

Our camera dissapeared from our bag as we were having a cup of coffee in hotel restaurant before departing for airport.The hotel porter met us as we came out of lift and placed our bags in reception lobby.
We were the only guests about as early morning depature.When time to get on transfer looked in bag, camera missing. Management no help and deny everything.
Uncooked chicken left lying at room temperature in buffet area.Problems with toilets flushing.
Smell of cigarette smoke coming thru ventillation in room.
The location on Nile and Pool area both good but not worth the risks .

Just got home from a week in Luxor. Received a warm welcome from the staff who treated our children really well. First impression of the room were that it could do with some modernisation but is clean and tidy. We had a junior nile suite and once we walked out on our balcony we had a fantastic view of the nile, and pool and beautiful gardens, which made up for the room. The only gripe was that there was not enough storage space to unpack all our stuff and I lived out of a suitcase for the week. In the restaurant the staff were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, my daughters who had never been abroad before were treated like princesses. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. It was sad to see the hotel so quiet and we felt that this contributed to the lack of variation in the menu (we were fully inclusive). All in all a great holiday, the hotel needs modernisation but is probably stuck in a vicious circle that the hotel is so quiet that there isn t the money to revamp it. We feel that the people make the place and were treated so well that its easy to overlook the need of a modern overhaul.

Stayed here just one night as part of trip - what can I say? The rooms were spacious and clean, the pool area was just amazing, and the staff were excellent! Would love to have stayed longer. I will definitely use this hotel again, should I ever return to Luxor...

Room Tip: The even numbered rooms have a Nile view, but both sides are great!

A warm welcome awaits you at the Pyramisa ISIS Hotel Luxor nestling along the East Bank of the River Nile in full view of the West Bank and Valley of the Kings and Nobles. The Hotel suites are exceptionally bright and comfortable with spacious rooms and pink granite bathrooms with bathtubs and showers. The suites boast two balconys with panoramic views of the Valley of the Kings and Nobles and views of the the female Pharaoh Hatshepsut funerary temple complex which is seen both by day in the sunshine and at night by floodlights. The hotel has the largest enclosed landscaped gardens with exotic trees and shrubs on the banks of the Nile with a main swimming pool covered with an ornamental bridge and a second seperate sports pool. The staff are careing and helpful and always ready with a welcoming smile and courtesy by day and night in this large spacious hotel and extensive gardens. I certainly have no hesitation to recommend the Pyramis ISIS Hotel Luxor to you and have enjoyed comfortable and delightful stays in the gorgeous Hotel suites overlooking the Nile with exceptional views of the Ancient Land of Egypt surrounding the Vallley of the Kings. This is the best Hotel in Town.

This is the first time I stay in this hotel in Luxor , invited with 2 other families to stay for 4 nights , the location of the hotel is good as it's directly by the Nile ... You can see the Nile easily from your room .
The hotel looks very old and in deed it's very old and needs a lot of work especially in the rooms ... 2 small beds ... Very old tv .. Small mini bar ... If your room is in the second floor you will have a big terrace where you can enjoy the Nile view .... Being on time share basis will lead you to neutral treatment here ..especially now as there aren't many foreigners here .. Many many Egyptians ... Locals from different cities ... ( looks like Moslem brotherhood giving money to there followers to fill the city ) this time of the year is schools mid year vacation that's why it's full of Egyptians ...
Haven't tried the food in the hotel but drinkers are expensive comparing to the next door supermarket ...
