We have just returned from a 2 week stay at the Iberotel and have had a great time. the hotel is in a fantastic position right on the Nile and directly across from The Valley of the Kings. Near enough to the town to walk and see some of the sights Luxor has to offer. You do get a bit of hassle when you go out but if you say "No thanks" and don't engage in any other chat they mostly leave you alone.
The grounds of the hotel are kept in good condition and are clean and tidy with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the great views.
The rooms are in need of a bit of updating but are kept clean and are quite comfy. The bathroom is small but has all that you need. We had a room at the side which gave us a view of the street and the Nile. It did tend to be a bit noisy in the evenings but once the doors were closed it wasn't enough to keep you awake.
We did find the food a bit repetative, beef every day gets a little boring, but that said I do think that most AI hotels have the same problem. We ate at the pool bar at lunchtimes and got great service. We were waited on hand and foot by the fantastic staff, a special mention must go to the waiters, Adel and Yasser and the pool boy Refaat. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always ready with a smile. We must also make a special mention of Mahmoud a waiter mostly in the Bar in the evenings, he was always happy and smiling and seemed to know exactly when we wanted a refill.
All in all a great hotel and we wouldn't hesitate to return again in the future, hopefully next time we would get a Nile view room as we never got to see the wonderful sunsets that we read about.
Our thanks go to all the staff at the Iberotel who made our holiday one to remember.
