“Nice hotel, shame about the hasslers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Nice smart hotel, beer a bit expensive...try the kings head pub over the road for cheaper beer and food...nice pool and pool bar and excellent view of the Nile for stunning sunsets over the Valley of The Kings. In town centre so handy for taxis to Luxor Temple, Luxor Museum etc (only five minutes away). Like most of Egypt though you will be besieged by people trying to sell you things the moment you set foot in the street. Rooms very good although gave up trying to get any sense out of the TV. Couple of little grocery stores next to the entrance (one of them called Asda!) and good book shop over the road for no hassle purchase of books and postcards (Aboudy). Part of an Expat Explore trip (budget) so much better hotel than I was expecting.

Last year in March, I wrote some nice things about this hotel and I added that I'd better keep it for myself. But I did not and many (too many?) people followed my advice and came to enjoy the Lotus swimming pool area. So what did Lotus? They doubled the price! They doubled the price! So, am I stupid? Yes! Won't happen again. Certainly not here!

Nice hotel with an excellent location at the bank of the river Nile. Unfortunately the pool was closed because of maintenance. Wonderful view from the hotel terrace. Peaceful and quiet. Most of the rooms have balcony facing the Nile, but we didn't because it was a three-beds room.

We stayed at the Lotus Hotel 19th - 25th of September.

This is a great value for money hotel!!! We booked a Junior Suite. The room was clean, very large with two balconies and a SUPERB view of the Nile. Lots of Tv channels if you get bored of the sun, beautiful views and pool, I didn’t. The staff was very nice especially the front desk who always tried to help us out when we needed.

Breakfast was simple (coffee, tea, bread, baked goods, juice, yogurt, omelet).
The hotel restaurant is good and I would recommend it since going out is always a hassle and the food is the same, with the same price.
Also the sandwiches they offer to be eaten at pool side are great!!!

Regarding the presence of older women with young Egyptian men, we saw a lot of it but they acted as normal guest and that happens everywhere in Luxor. Egypt is famous for that so just enjoy your vacation and stop taking care of other people lives.

If you don’t like to be stared at sometimes don’t go to Egypt, this will happen either inside the Hotel or outside.

I'm surprised to see some very bad reviews of this Hotel. This is not an upscale type of place (look at the price!!!) if you want 1st class service don’t be cheap and go somewhere else.

The Hotel fulfilled all of our needs. We had a GREAT stay.

Room Tip: Junior Suite

Stayed at the Lotus for 4 nights, nice spot and very helpful staff. Not the cheapest you can find in Luxor but certainly very good value for money. Great views of the Nile and the Valley. Buffet breakfast is reasonable but then "buffet" in front of anything is usually great if you ask me. Room service food wasn't anything special but convenient (I'd recommend one of the better places to eat a short walk down the street). All in all this was a great place to stay.

its only a small hotel, its jewel set between the sonesta and steigenberger hotels, the view is thee most stunning in luxor , and on a clear day, [ of which there are many ] you can see hapshetsut's mortuary temple, and see all the balloons flying high, the hotel staff are absolutely super,the service is exceptional, its could do with a lick of paint and some fixing up in the bed rooms, but the staff make up for the short fall in decor,the pool is kept pristine clean..if pool side is your thing then you could not ask for better,i have stayed twice now in this hotel.,Mr Mohamed on the desk is delightful, and is eager to please, if your a single women traveleing ,this is the best hotel to stay at, if you can get a room on the third floor, esma the maid is outstanding at keep your room ship shape,nothing is to much trouble,i felt i was in a family hotel as all the staff respect one another.. debbie .x

Room Tip: i would say the right side, i stayed in 302, it was perfect for me as the sun was never on the balc...
