I've stayed in this hotel for 1 night as part of my tour. I have to tell you from the beginning not to expect luxury at the hotel. It's actually quite basic and a bit dated.
The rooms however are quite clean and comfortable. There's air conditioning and other basic facilities in the rooms such as a TV, telephone, fridge (the fridge actually froze things rather than cooled them down - i put a bottle of water in there and it was frozen when i got it out the next day, but i didn't mind as it was good for a hot day) and towels, soap, etc. I think it was more than sufficient.
One thing i really did like is the roof. There is a small pool there to cool off and some sun chairs but there is also a cafe type of thing and tables to order meals/drinks. The view is just amazing from the roof, you can see the city and the Nile!
The staff were quite friendly and are happy to assist when asked.
On the ground floor, apart from the lobby/reception there is a restaurant. Breakfast was included in our price and it was quite good. It had good variety such as eggs, sausages, cereals, pastries and some egyptian cuisine. We did also have a three course dinner at that restaurant, it was cheap from memory, i think it worked out about $20 Australian. There was a large variety of things you can order from the menu both western food and egyptian food. The portions were quite big and the food was delicious. There is also a bar - i haven't been there though but i saw signs for happy hour.
There is also free wireless internet. Which is a plus :)
Location of the hotel was quite good. Close to the Nile and there were a convenience shop, pharmacy, shops and restaurants/cafes just down the road. It is also a short walk to Luxor temple.
Overall, it was a good value.
The only things i can really fault is that the hotel needs refurbishment as it is a bit outdated and the lifts were quite slow..
