Stayed at the Iberotel Luxor on the 12/06/13 after a weeks cruise on the Nile with First Choice Holidays. Very quick check-in and shown to our room by the very helpful manager Mr Mohammed. We stayed in room 310 which had a great view of the Nile and the street down to Luxor. The rooms are a bit dated but spacious and very clean sheets and towels were changed daily with the towel art left on the bed every day. Free air-con in room also . Traffic on the street could be heard at times but we were never disturbed unduly. The lower number rooms are further away from the street and would therefore be quieter if you need silence. Stayed on an all-inclusive basis which was great because the drink is not cheap. The food in the restaurant was buffet style, good and varied with lots of choices and the chef was always on hand to help with other options. Waiter service was also very attentive without being obtrusive.
The hotel is ideally situated for a walk down to the Winter palace , market or temple. There are a few british style pubs and restaurants within a 10-15 walk from the hotel ,but were a bit quiet with the low tourist numbers. Upon leaving the hotel you WILL be immediately hounded by taxi and kalesh drivers, but they all seem to give up after a few firm "No thanks".
The pool is good and well looked after by the pool guy who insists on laying out the free pool towels on the beds as soon as you arrive. No rush for sunbeds as there was always plenty to choose from.
Food ordered at the pool is brought down from the main restaurant . We ate there every day and never had a bad meal.
We went on a few trips with "Craig David" the boatman who is on his boat at the side of the pool every day. Trips were about a third the price of First Choice trips and were at better times with less crowds. We paid when we got back and really enjoyed the personal touch.
There is a trip to Denderah temple from the hotel every Tuesday on their own ship which is £40.00 for a full day with meals ,leaves at 7am and back at 6-7pm.
In all would stay at this hotel again and would not hesitate to recommend it for a stay in Luxor.
