We enjoyed (wife and I) our 2-night stay at the Pyramisa prior to embarking on a 7-day Nile cruise to the Aswan dam and back. Upon our return we again stayed at the same hotel.
There is free wi-fi in the lobby, which is important to me as the rates in the room (and on the cruise boat) were pretty expensive (56 LS, or about $9, per hour).
We ate the buffet breakfast, which is quite adequate, but opted to eat at the Italian restaurant for dinner. The Italian restaurant is simply cordoned off from the buffet area by screens, but with a menu,. The food was excellent. I get the impression that the building housing the original Italian restaurant is closed because there are very few tourists due to much adverse publicity about Egypt in the news.
In example, we were told that of the 400 cruise boats normally working the Nile, only 35 to 40
are presently in service.
We found no reason that we should not have visited Egypt. There is absolutely no trouble here in Luxor, but it is a good time to visit because the Nile is not crowded, nor are the hotels.
We were lucky to have Dr. Waleed, and Egyptologist, as our guide during the 7-day cruise, as he is much more versed in the history of the ancient tombs and monuments than than is the average tour guide.
