We stayed in this hotel in April 2012. We had a fantastic time. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly. The reception is a bit gloomy and the covers shielding the atrium have seen better days, but the rest of the hotel is great. When going for breakfast, it really did lift our day as the staff could not do anymore for you. The choices of cereals, fruit, breads etc was excellent. I read other reviews and most were accurate with what we experienced. Our room (after recommendation from this website) was on the fifth floor and we paid extra for a Nile view. Even though it cost an extra £150 for the week, I would have paid double. The view across the Nile at dawn and dusk across to the Valley of the Kings was breathtaking. I could not wait to open the curtains in the morning to look at the view and spent every spare moment when in the room, outside on the balcony. This balcony is small and you can only just get two chairs on it, and a small table, but it's fine. The room was always clean and we had towel sculptures each day. These were not as extravagant as others I have seen, but still a nice touch. The bar was nice, but preferred taking our drinks outside on the terrace, to watch the sunsets. The pool area is a pontoon out in the Nile but you would not know it apart from going over the bridge. Excellent facilities with plenty of sunbeds and shade it you want it. The food was very good and do a nice Stella beer (Egyptian!). We went on a number of planned trips. Must sees are Valley of the Kings, Luxor Temple, Karnack Temple, Felucca to Banana island, Luxor Museum (excellent - has one of Tutankhamuns chariots!). The only downside is the hassle you get. You cannot walk 2 seconds outside without Caleche (horse and carriage) drivers or Taxi drivers hassling to take you somewhere. It is quite intimidating at first, but just walk past saying no thanks and they finally give up. However, it will happen everywhere you walk, even multiple times within 50 feet. We got braver as the week went on. An annoying thing is having to tip for everything even paper towels given to you in the loos at the airport or if you have to ask for help from someone. Get lots of small denomination notes 5E£ and 10E£ from the HSBC bank attached to the hotel. All in all, a lovely hotel, a fantastic time and a holiday to remember.
