This hotel was an excellent choice and lives up to its 5 star rating. The hotel was very clean and well decorated. The staff were very helpful. We had a problem with the first room allocated but a visit to reception changed that and we were given a far better room than first allocated overlooking the Nile. The location is...

To put this review in context, I stayed at the hotel with my brother (both in 20’s, travelled & keen on sport) as a last minute b&b option for some winter Sun in March 2006. The hotel is approximately 10mins from the Luxor Temple by taxi (approx £E15 each way). Being this distance from the city gives the hotel a...

This is by far the best hotel in Luxor and I would not recommend staying anywhere else. It has superb service, a great location and first class food. I'm shocked to read some of the other reviews, which are so far off the mark with this hotel. I went to Luxor to combine some winter sun with a visit to...

My husband, 9yr old daughter and I stayed here for 2 weeks in February. The hotel was in a good location and only 20 minutes from the airport. The rooms are quite small but cleaned every day with fresh towels and linen. Choice of food good but be prepared to wait for a table especially in the evening as it...

Our tour itinerary changed to Sofitel Karnack without notice. Fortunatly we only had a short stay. The service was absent and indifferent. Meals were chaotic. A waiter followed me to the lobby demanding more tip money! (I tip quite generously and a service fee of 12% is included). I saw a glass bttle break into the lovely pool. The staff...

My wife and I have just stayed here, looking for some relaxation, sun and a bit of sightseeing. We were not disappointed. The hotel is just outside Luxor town and is served by shuttle bus and water taxi into Luxor for free. Luxor is very busy and noisy so it was nice to stay just outside. The hotel is in...

The quality of this hotel has been badly misrepresented. It is at best a 3 star with a cheap 5 star veneer. When you look at pictures and perhaps even when you first get there, you think “well, this is pretty nice.” But, then the problems start immediately. First, the front desk is way understaffed. There are actually a decent...
