“an interesting place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

The location is great, very central. We tried to go for a walk, but so many hawkers were pressing us to buy something, we actually turned back and instead shopped in the hotel for gifts. There is a terrific little shop on the ground level that sells handmade blown glass items, especially lovely and delicate little perfume bottles. The store also has various perfumes in bulk to sample and buy in various quantities, and all this at very reasonable prices. The room was most interesting, appointed in what one assumes is a more local style. Beds were very comfortable but the bathroom stole the show with its automated shower/bathtub and toilet. There is an entire page of instructions on how to use the toilet. There are balconies also; we faced the street and that was interesting just for the sights and sounds. The pool is nice in the spacious back of the hotel with the Nile right there. The food is good but not too memorable. All in all, a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Nile at a higher floor, but even the street view is fun.

Enjoyed a return visit to the sonesta st George. My friend and i visit Luxor every year to volunteer at the sunshine Orphanage and this was an ideal base. Hotel has a lovely pool area, with only feluccas moored up beside it unlike some hotels who had cruise ships. Service around the pool and breakfast buffet was excellent. the room service also excellent, clean towels twice a day, beds turned down. We had a side nile view, so best of both worlds, nile view to watch the sun rise and set, and a view of the street to watch the world.
All staff friendly and helpful. We will return to this hotel again next year.

I work in travel and even considered not going back to egypt with all the current unrest. I am so glad we went back and especially to the Sonesta.
The reception staff were so helpful, the restaurant staff so friendly and the pool staff were really attentive.
It was only our second visit to the hotel but we were made to fell like long lost friends.
The room was excellent, breakfast was plentiful, fresh and a huge selection from Japanese, European to British, American and of course Egyptian.
The main hero's of the hotel are the cleaning staff, nothing is to much trouble, constant towels, fresh sheets and turn down service.
Wonderful stay, good central location, good kalesh drivers outside (Adam).
We will be back next year regardless of the politics in Egypt. Luxor seems very safe we went to Dendara, Abydos and went treking on our own over the valley of the queens to the nobles and on to the kings ( long walk but well worth it)
Well done the Staff at the Sonesta you do a fantastic job.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and I cannot praise the staff and facilities enough. The room staff changed the towels twice a day and the room was always spotless and the view across the Nile from our balcony was fantastic. The breakfast staff were always attentive and friendly and we enjoyed our daily breakfast by the pool. The pool staff were always on hand to help with anything we needed, wonderful service! We had a problem with the room phone and I made 3 calls to book my horse riding but could not get connected. The reception staff looked into it and did not charge me for the calls. I love this hotel, everything is professional and luxurious, but the staff are always friendly and helpful. Just perfect - I'll be back!

Room Tip: Get a Nile view - it's worth it

We went for my 50 th birthday and I couldn't have picked a better hotel for our stay. Lovely location overlooking the Nile. Rooms were nice (although ours did look over the waterworks next door). Stunning foyer to the hotel. Going against the reps advice we did take a ride on the karresh. Was great. Just confirm the price for the carriage per hour in whichever currency. We also hooked up with a taxi driver who took us around the real Luxor. Fab great restaurants. The lantern was our favourite. The puddle ducks is good as is taste of the Nile. Don't eat dinner at the winter palace it was the worse meal we had. The sites are ace. Don't just sit Staround the pool (gorgeous as it is). We'll definitely be going back again.
