A friend and I have just returned from a 9 week tour of some of The Middle East and were fortunate to spend about a week at this charming hotel that has a wonderful caring staff, great food and fabulously colorful ceiling and wall artwork in the rooms and common areas. The location could not be better. Last trip, we stayed on the west bank and this year decided to do the city atmosphere and be closer to some of the sites. You cannot get any closer to Luxor Temple and the view at sunset from the Nefertiti Hotel roof deck is superb. You will see The Temple in a whole new light, literally, as floodlights make the whole complex glow in the evening (sunset to 9:00PM. Tours to any of the area sights can be made right from the hotel. Mohammed is charming and most capable and can help you plan any activities you'd like. He was so helpful to us in making a flight schedule change. We will be back to the Nefertiti Hotel for sure.
