“Very good princess hotel”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

The manager provide very hospitality, and very good service to any trip planing and transportation informations. He helps me a lot from the beginning to the end, and he even sees me off in the train station. If u want to go to luxor for a nice trip, u should go the princess hotel and find the manager! His name s Maswd.

Princess hotel is great. We received a warm welcome and the staff helped us eagerly with finding tours and giving tips. They have good connections to do a tour to Valley of the Kings and Queens, as well as a balloon tour over Luxor. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were really clean.
Thank you for everything!
Kind regards from Belgium

In early-mid October 2011 I stayed at Princess Hotel with my 11-yo nephew for 5 days. This was one of our cheapest stays on our trip and yet the room was spacious, with air-con, the en suite bathroom had sufficient hot water and at good pressure and the staff were very helpful in all sorts of ways. They helped us with hiring car+driver but I would advise that you try to bargain the cost down a little, and check exactly what you are getting: ensure they know just what you want, starting and finish time, AND ensure that your driver does too, and/or understands sufficient English to cater to your requirements. For our trip to Abydos and Dendara we were made to hurry with the time we spent at the last temple: the driver said the temple closing time was 3pm but it was 4pm. But apart from hat, I think it's a great hotel, oh and you can get your laundry done really well and cheaply, too. Really nice people.

The location was ideal for walking around Luxor. The management and staff were accommodating and friendly. Older women seem to be of great interest to the management and can be a target for soliciting money from them to help them out because of the lack of tourism. This, however this is quite common in other hotels as well. Be careful about arranging tours at the hotel. You can get much better prices just by shopping around. At first sight, the hotel seems a bit shabby but in my one month stay there I found the cleanliness to be great. I would say, overall, this is a great place to stay for families, backpackers and all others but NOT single women.

we stayed here from the 2-9 march just after the travel restrictions to egypt were changed, and so the hotel was completely empty. it would be completely different at a busier time.

the location was on the east bank, a short walk from the train station, and not much further from luxor temple. however it was down a few back streets in quite a dirty area. there were heaps of small food shops around though which made our stay a lot easier as we had cheap bread and fruit for our breakfasts and lunches.

the hotel manager came on a bit strong with his trips when we first arrived, really we just wanted to go to bed, but we felt a ltitle bit hassled. we went on one and were a bit disappointed with the information the guide gave us (more about current affairs than ancient egypt) but after we had been on one the manager left us alone.

while we were there they started renovation the hotel which was very very noisy and the smell of paint was quite strong, but they did it because there were no tourists and so they had nothing else to do, it was almost done by the time we left. it was quite a noisy hotel, very close to a mosque and you could hear the staff quite loudly.

have to say though it was such a clean room and bathroom, very basic, just beds and table in the room, but very clean. the water was hot and and the shower was alright. the flush on the toilet was a bit rubbish, but we thought our room was very good value.

for the money we paid we were happy with the hotel and would recommend it, but people who need quiet nights should look elsewhere.

Was brought here by the minibus from the Aswan-Luxor felluca trip. I wasn't initially going to get off but once I heard the prices and figured other places were close by, figured I may as well.

They didn't have a single room available but knocked off LE10 from a double so I took it. The room wasnt much but it was clean as was the bathroom, beds were soft and warm blankets. Water was a bit too hot and hard to regulate, never come across too hot before !!

My issues started on my last day of stay,I was ripped off by about LE40 from the (I believe) standard price of LE130 for a bus ticket to Dahab. Their attitude completely flipped on its head when I confronted them about this and they have shown their true colours.

Stay here but stay away from the staff !!
