Wonderful stay in a magical place! Would like to thank Mohamed at front desk for his attention to details. He made sure our experience would be unforgettable. Rooms, food, service, facilities were all 5 stars!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We booked this hotel thinking we were staying at the Palace but in fact got a room at the Pavilion (explains the cheaper rate) which didn't make a difference to us because we had access to all the amenities. Breakfast is included (530-1030am) and they will prepare boxed breakfast for you if you have an early excursion. The garden is...

We had a wonderful stay and returned to the hotel with eager anticipation after every outing we went on. A true oasis. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and made us feel like their personal friends rather than customers.

This hotel is an oasis in Upper Egypt. This location is magical, it is right next to both the Luxor museum and Luxor Temple Complex.

Once again I fail to understand the negative reviews. This hotel is beautiful. I arranged for us to be picked up at the airport by them. Yes this cost about 3 times what a taxi would cost, but we avoided the haggling and mob scene outside of the airport. On arrival at the hotel we were warmly received by Mustafa...

The location is great, the Wi-Fi was absolutely horrible, the staff was nice but hotel felt empty even though it was not, it's an old property and I think the decor and attention to detail could be much better. We stayed at the hotel in Montevideo which was somewhat similar as far as age/history and they did a much better...

Wonderful old world charm, so glad we stayed there, really great staff, good food, beautiful gardens, delightful pool and best of all, location on the Nile. Sadly, only one down side, is lack of non-smoking areas around the pool, bar and lounge.

“Nile view rooms are really lovely, and the hotel is set back from the Corniche, so the traffic is not really a factor.”
