Well, the rooms are comfortable, and balconies nice, the pool is pretty, and the gardens are just lovely and peaceful. Its the ideal place to stay if you want to get away from the noise and hussle and bussle of Luxor. The room service is however shocking, and food not too good. Breakfast buffet is passable, but nothing compared to the Steigenberger for quality and service.
One huge benefit is you can walk straight out onto the Nile and also to Luxor Temple without needing to take a taxi. The biggest downside is the hassle from kalesh drivers right outside and the hotel has not been able to do anything about it. I got round this by finding a reliable taxi company and always arranged a pick up and drop off, and this really made a difference to a pleasant stay I can't recommend luxor-taxi.com enough for their prompt reliable and polite service. A text message was enough to arrange a pick up even at short notice. Reliable for airport pick ups and drop offs too.
I also stayed here in December 2011, and January 2012... but I do hope they have sorted out the water tanks for the air conditioning units as there were some problems with mosquitoes coming through the air con. I think I will use the Steigenberger next time.... and put up with the noise form the boats!
