“A much needed return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

Just got back from a week staying here after a gap of 15 years. The last time I attended here was just as the hotel began to open its doors after the "incident" at Hatchepsut Temple in 1997 and Egypt was a country suffering but I was still treated like royalty.

Fifteen years on I returned to Egypt to find a much grown up hotel facing similar problems that it was experiencing back then (little or no tourists!). Egypt is a wonderful country and the Sonesta St George is a perfect base to locate yourself to see the sites and sounds of history!

The hotel has a choice of places to eat but I would recommend the Lotus Cafe for most enjoyable lunches and Aladdin (Egyptian) or Miyako (Japanese) restaurants for dinner. The food and service are both exemplary.

Nader, I know you might have forgotten me but I will always remember your kindness fondly.

All of the staff are willing to make you feel welcome whoever they are and I thank you all!

We thought the hotel was great. One side of it you could watch the peaceful Nile and on the other the manic day to day life of Luxor. The beds were very comfortable and the breakfast was great. All the staff were delightful - we'd definitely come back. My son loved the swimming pool - lovely and warm.

have stayed at this hotel for many years and the staff always make you welcome and nothing is too much trouble.The rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious.The restaurants offer a fabulous variety of cuisine,the Japanese being my favorite for the quality and beautiful way it is served and if you go before 7pm there is 30% of your total bill.
I can highly recommend a visit to the lovely Sonesta you will not be disappointed

It is never easy to find a clean, well maintained, and good service in this part of Egypt. However Sonesta gives all that. More importantly the guys working there are very friendly and helpful as well, and more importantly they are not sticky. I do recommend this hotel for your stay at Luxor for what ever reason it happened you have been there for

I have been staying at the Sonesta every year since 2006 and the fact that I keep going back must speak volumes. The rooms and surrounds are maintained in excellent conditions and the staff are delightful, friendly and always ready to enjoy a chat and a laugh. It,s position is central to the temples, shops and other hotels and restaurants which I like to use not least the incredible Arkrights (open all hours)

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the Nile on the third floor upwards

Currently staying at the hotel again and would like to point out the staff cannot do enough to make your stay more enjoyable. Great service by the pool and the reception staff are first class-nothing a problem and most obliging. Would highly recommend upgrading to Nile front room- a view that cannot be repeated! Will be back again and again and again! Please ignore the press reporting of the troubles in Egypt- they are greatly exaggerated- it's a wonderful country with great people-visit!

This was my first visit to Luxor to see the sights and we stopped here for lunch. Beautiful hotel, very clean everywhere, lovely lunch and very central. I was very surprised though to see that the place seemed very empty. Considering it was Easter the poolside (picture attached) was empty, and outside on the main strip, dozens upon dozens of tourist horse and carriage's sat un-used, and I never see a single boat travelling up the Nile, they were all tied up and moored and again un-used. In fact although a busy street I see only 2 tourists pass by. It seemed Luxor is no longer favourable. However As I say it was my first visit, and I have nothing to measure it against.
