“Amazing roofterrace and very friendly hosts - feels like home!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Nefertiti is a great and relaxing place to stay in Luxor. The rooms are very decent (clean, tiny balcony, private bathroom) and the hotel itself is a gem with a cosy reception, beautiful staircase but most of all an amazing roof terrace with views over the Nile to the West Bank. The Luxor Temple is just a 100 metres away: nicest to visit in the evening when it is beautifully lit. The restaurant attached to the hotel (also serves on roof terrace) is very convenient.
Best of our stay were the friendly owners who definitely try to make you feel comfortable! Thanks to Nefertiti hotel for our pleasant stay :)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

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.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with young kids or if you are having trouble climbing steps, try to stay in low...

Really enjoyed staying there in May 2013 for 2 nights. Staff was young and friendly. Room was nice; although on 4th floor with no elevator! Lots of exercise. Rooftop terrace was fabulous. Great views of Luxor Temple, Nile and Valley of the Kings! Ate mostly all my meals up there. Food was good. Tried local egyptian foods especially the delicious dried hibiscus drink karkadai! They have air conditioners outside on roof to cool you off. Nice touch! Breakfast, included in hotel price, had a very good selection. Outside of the hotel was the continuation of the restaurant that serves upstairs.Cozy atmosphere and safe feeling.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower floor room if you can't do steps as there is no elevator!

My self and my friends we recently spend 3 days in Nefertiti hotel, it was really fantastic time we enjoyed every second there, we use to come back from the tour which organized by Aladin tours it's also same family travel agency and we could just relax after the street hassling and order great meals from the restaurant belongs to the hotel. The staff were really helpful and funny they could always make sure we are happy during our trip in Luxor, the manager of the hotel was very helpful and always came to check us if we have any problems but actually we didn't have any problems to tell, i would highly recommend this hotel and i also would recommend to plan your trips with them it's very well organized and cheap actually we didn't pay too much for the tours. (Thank you all guys)
