Myself, my wife and our grown-up son stayed in the Sofitel Karnak for two weeks in November, after a Thomas Cook flight from Manchester.
Thomas Cook flight OK, food OK, comfort on plane 5/10, punctuality 10/10.
I had done a lot of research on Trip Advisor prior to booking the hotel, Sofitel met our expectations.
Layout and grounds 9/10. My son tells me that the swimming pool was rather cold, but then too hot (as much as 33C)
Food – Breakfast 7/10 (Omelettes 10/10) – a fair choice, Lunch 7/10 – a fairly limited choice by the swimming pool, Dinner 8/10 – always a good choice, items varied from OK to very good, mostly good or very good (Dinner at Nile Restaurant 9/10)
Bars and cafe 8/10
Staff – Reception 7/10, Catering 9/10 – we had a laugh and a joke with some of them them, but all were good, Staff Overall 9/10
Nile View 8/10, without the pylons 10/10
Room 8/10, just a couple of minor maintenance issues
Shuttle bus and shuttle boat 8/10 – would have been more if more frequent, shuttle drivers very good
Taxis from hotel reception 9/10
