We stayed at this hotel for one week following a cruise on the Nile. A combination of its positive reviews and its location were paramount in us choosing the Sofitel Karnak.
Located alongside the Nile on the outskirts of Karnak, away from the dust and clamour of busy Luxor, it was ideal for a spot of rest and recuperation after the early mornings and busy trips of our first week. We were still able to pop into Luxor both by taxi at a reasonable price and by the hotel’s free shuttle. The hotel provided a choice of transport minibus or boat, we chose the boat, it was excellent, about 40 minutes and we were dropped off at The Winter Palace Hotel.
The food and service were excellent and the room was quite spacious with a settee in an alcove as well all the expected items. The pool was big enough with a large area only 1.6m deep which encouraged the less able swimmers to enjoy the facility.
The only disappointing aspect was that All Inclusive guests were served small versions of the long drinks, (150ml of beer or Sprite at lunch or dinner!) necessitating more frequent service than usual.
The hotel walkways and gardens were very attractive and well maintained, with ramps for wheelchairs and pushchairs in abundance,
We would happily stay here again
