Just returned from a 10 day trip to the Nile. Fantastic holiday arranged with Thomas Cook Signature. Everything went smoothly from Start to finish. Met at the airport and taxi transfer to our boat the Ra 11. Yes the cabins look a little tired but cleaned twice a day, the food was great, always a good choice and the staff were very friendly. Omar, our guide was outstanding. He bonded our group together and really brought all of the history alive for us. We had some really fun evenings playing Egyptian bingo and the Egyptian night where everyone dressed up was great. I cried when I had to say goodbye to Omar and feel that we were very fortunate to have met such a lovely person. We were picked up at midday for our transfer to the Nile Palace, and couldn't believe it when we were sent off with sandwiches for our lunch, how lovely.

Taxi transfer again to the Nile Palace. This was a beautiful hotel with fantastic views over The Nile. Our room was really comfortable and the whole hotel was exceptionally clean. We booked half board but I think if we go again we would probably just do bed and breakfast because there are some great restaurants close to the hotel. We had lunch at Maxime which was all cooked from scratch and two drinks for £7 for us both.

Afternoon tea at the Winter Palace is a must and we went by horse and carriage. Be careful though, because although we had agreed the price before we went, the guy hastled us to give the same again for the horse!

All in all a magical holiday and really hope to return and we would certainly do the same itinerary again.

Room Tip: We didn't have a Nile View room because we had just spent a week on the Nile. It is lovely to se...

Rooms were good, not anything real special, I wouldn't say anything bad about them. However the hotel is very nice as a whole. The location was good and we enjoyed that. Sitting on the patio watching the boats float by was a great evening.

We have visited this hotel twice now, and it is great! the rooms are immaculate, and the staff are very helpful.
The italian and lebonese restaurants are great, and I couldnt fault the food. My partner can be fussy at times but they accommodated his wishes every time!
The thai restaurant is meant to be fantastic, but we didnt eat there.
The pool area is fantastic, the staff will bring drinks to your lounger, and the pool guys are so helpful!
All in all, a fantastic holiday and we will be going back again at some point.
PS- Dont be afraid to go out and explore Luxor, there is a lot of hassle, but if you just say no very firmly ('la' in arabic), they will give up! It is a great place with lots of great restaurants and shops to explore!

Room Tip: upgrade to a nile view room, it is definately worth it! If you travel as a family (we did the first...

I stayed here for two nights in May, 2011. I know that has been a while, and I apologize for the tardiness of my review. The hotel itself was very nice, got a fantastic deal here on the room rate. Great view of the Nile from the room.

And here is a great tip... for dinner, there is a fantastic little restaurant a few blocks walking distance called CASTELLO. I hope I spelled that correctly. It is worth finding, though, trust me! Amazing place! Some Italian fare, wood-fired pizzas, and some traditional foods as well. The owner could not have been more welcoming. I would have gone there more than once if I had found it earlier.

My only complaint, I was very upset with the hotel management's efforts to keep their guests from purchasing food or drink outside and bringing it inside. I drink a lot of water. And in Egypt, I was just a little thirstier than normal, being in the desert and all. I found a great little grocery store a couple blocks from the Steigenberger, and purchased several large bottles of water there. I planned to take them back to my room to drink there, and also to take with me the next couple days of sightseeing. Was majorly annoyed when I was stopped at the front door and told I could not bring the water in with me! It was perfectly fine, safety sealed, etc. They say it is for the safety of their guests. I say it is to keep the guests' money in the hotel. The prices of water in the hotel were ridiculous compared to what the grocery store offered. I am a budget traveler. After arguing with the man at the front desk, and it took a while, he finally relented and offered to let me take ONE bottle of water to my room at a time, and they would keep the other bottles locked up for me. I argued a little longer, and they finally let me take it all with me. I am usually a very amiable person, but this really made me angry. That is really my only issue with the hotel. As I said earlier, got a great deal on the room, and it was comfortable/clean, nice view.
