We stayed as a family for a night. Booked this hotel based on reviews from fellow TripAdvisirians(Now I should patent this word :)). Upon arrival, we were given a room in the top floor. It was rather inconvenient to walk with kids and luggage to the top floor. The room air conditioner was not cooled even after an hour and I went to the reception asked them to change the room to the lower floor. I was given room in a first floor and A/C worked fine. What a relief.
I was given sufficient information about the tours organized by Aladdin tours but I informed them it is just the rest day and not in a mood to do any travel on that day and the tour representative took it very easily. No push at all. Probably I will do more tour with them next time.
Now the great part. Shima, reservations manager, personally took time in coming with us to purchase few jewellery items. I really appreciate her willingness to help us customers to have a great experience. Even she offered to take us to a perfume place where my wife wanted to get perfume. But because of the time constraint we can't do it. She is very friendly, my kids really loved her especially my little daughter. She will be our tour guide in egypt next time.
Views from the rooftop is great and the room is comfortable. Priced just right. I found the food next door little expensive when compare to other places. Compared to US restaurants, still it is less expensive.
Whole luxor got a power cut couple of times during the dat and there are no power generators or backup at the hotel. I believe that's the norm for most of the hotels. We were worried about the night but no power cut on that night.
Overall, because of Shima's great customer care, this whole experience became a great one and looking forward to stay here in our next trip.
