We stayed at the Nefertiti for the Luxor leg of our honeymoon in November and we absolutely LOVED it! After hours and hours of searching through all hotel options for Luxor we chose the Nefertiti due to its location, the great reviews it had, and the fact they would organise our daytrips for us as we are pretty lazy but at the same time want a good deal! It turned out to be by far our favourite hotel we stayed at, and we stayed at a variety of places from budget to 5 star in Egypt. The Nefertiti are very accommodating..we changed some travel plans and informed them the day before that we would be arriving one day early, no problem, then our train was about 4 hours late into Luxor... our guy was still waiting for us. We were welcomed into the hotel like old friends, they have such an easy manner here and just want all their guests to feel totally at home and enjoy themselves. We were really impressed with this and the fact that at the same time the hotel is very professionally run, very clean (in fact it was like the stairs were always being cleaned) and everyone seems to take pride in their work there. The management are definitely doing something right, I hope they don't change anything. As others have said here, the roof terrace and views are to die for...so good that we ate most of our meals there. The location can't be beaten. Our room was a good size, the bed was excellent, the bathroom ensuite and did the job. The tv worked..everything was good. There is a phone in the room and they do wake up calls, inc our 4am wake up for the balloon trip over the west bank, highly recommended. They organised a private guide for our west bank tours, we couldn't fault our guide who was so knowledgeable we felt we got a great deal.
It would be wrong to single out 1 member of staff as being excellent at this hotel, as they all were from the reception desk to the roof terrace, absolutely brilliant, thank you all for making us feel special on our honeymoon!! It was very hard to leave and we will definitely return.
