Hotel Sheherazade
Ranked #18 of 54 Hotels in Luxor
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We can't find words good enough to express how wonderful the experience of staying in this hotel was. It is so warm and welcoming that you feel like at home. The staff was above all friendly and helpful, they treated us like royalty. Rooms are very clean and nice, equipped with AC, fan and fridge. Although we stayed out of season and we were only guests at the time, full service was given to us 24 hours a day. They really care about every guest and give all effort to satisfy you in your every need.
Location is very charming, because this part of Luxor is actually still a village starting to develop only in recent years. This gives you a chance to meet a lot of local people and their everyday life. Everybody on the west bank is really proud and happy to hear that you stay in their village and they all try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It is also more peaceful than the east bank so you can really relax and get a good night sleep. Another pro is that you are near the Valley of the Kings and other sights on the west bank which proves very practical.
When we come back to Luxor, our home will again be hotel Sheherazade! :)

The Hotel Sheherazade is easy to find and once there you feel as if you have slipped into a haven of tranquility. It is surrounded by large gardens from which they served me fresh peppermint tea on request. Just one example of how willing they are to accomadate the needs of their guests. The staff are so available and friendly that eventually they came to feel like an extended family. The rooms are immaculately clean, light and airy. Very roomy too and every day I got a new piece of imaginative towel art. That was really a fun thing to see. The food is excellent, both fresh and delicious. Due to the location it is extremely easy to cross over the nile via boat to the east bank and so get to experience that side of things without the constant hassle of staying there. I will defintiely go back again.

We stumbled into good fortune when we discovered the Sheherezade on a March 2012 trip to Luxor. That visit went so happily that we're glad to have come back again with visiting family members just six weeks later.

Mohamed and his staff are so helpful; anything you want is apparently easy for them. We really enjoy the simple breakfast in the garden restaurant, and especially love having a delicious lunch in a Bedouin-styled outdoor dining area after a morning of touring in the hot sun. We live in Egypt, so know what's available for local food -- if you stay at Sheherezade, you'd be a fool to eat elsewhere.

This is not a conventionally fancy hotel; it's just very cool, very Egyptian-styled, very connected to the out of doors. It's very clean and very well-kept. The staff is exceptionally kind and attentive. The cozy neighborhood, with easy view of kids going to school and playing outside together in the evenings, is part of the charm.

Room Tip: Don't think that the West Bank is inaccessible; consider getting a hotel there so you can enjoy...

We thought we had found a little bit of paradise when we arrived at this hotel for our week's stay, lovely and peaceful, great views, wonderful and attentive staff and genuinely good food. The rooms were large, airy and clean, there was no hassle and staff couldn't have been more willing to help. The location is great, a few minutes' walk to the ferry to get to Luxor temple and the centre of town. Wonderful.

This hotel is located on the West Bank with easy access to the ferry and a large choice of boats to cross over to the East Bank in a matter of minutes. The Nile crossing by itself was a very pleasant experience allowing closer contact with the Egyptian polulation. On this side of the river the locals were very welcoming and not giving any hassles to the tourists.
The hotel has a very Egyptien feel to it with its local decoration, its lushed garden and its roof terrace with wonderful views onto the country landscapes and the River Nile. It felt like an haven of peace after busy days spent visiting the many temples of the region and shopping around the town.
The rooms were spacious and clean with en suite bathrooms. The food was excellent and of good value.
What makes this hotel special is its staff. They were all very committed to make our stay a wonderful and unforgettable experience.
Thank you to them all.
The food was excellent and good value.

I chose the West bank as a conference centre and base away from the dull five star hotels that you can access anywhere in the world. This hotel and wonderful centre with roof top sings of Egyptian life and culture. The West Bank is the best for true Egypt and the Sheherazade delivers on all levels- design, service, staff- in fact whatever we needed was not a problem for the staff. With a group of 16 everyone loved staying here. What can I say- perfect in every way and the stars amazing. With Habu Temple and Carter's House 2km away you can walk in the desert or catch a ferry boat to beautiful Luxor temple. 2012 and 2013 will be booked too.
