Is the map location of the Sofitel Karnak Resort wrong?

Hi,

I think that the TA map location of the Sofitel Karnak Resort is wrong. It is shown as being just off the the Corniche near Cleopatra Street, whereas I think that it is further north than the Hilton resort. Could someone please confirm this for me?

Regards

Yes, that is definitely the wrong location. The Sofitel Karnak is about 5 km further north (from where it is shown on the map).

If you have a look via Google Earth, you'll get a better idea of location and the distance from Luxor.

It's really surprising, just how many restaurants etc. are actually within the confines of Luxor Temple, simply because the owners haven't been bothered to sort out their proper location.

I'd chuck them all off, for misleading the tourists!

Regards,

Edward.
