Beautiful old property. Probably would save money and stay at adjacent building for less than half the price next time. Was nice to have balcony looking out over Nile.

2/10 Poor

WORST Hotel I have ever stay in the 75 international cities I have visited. Really bad stay getting only a few hours sleep. Very noisy street. I ask to have my room changed and they reply hotel was full and couldn't change. The true is the hotel was very empty. I hardly saw anyone there and only a few people a breakfast. Saw only a few people checking in or out. Staff was not helpful at all. I finished my tour of Luxor early and since I was traveling light I had travel bad with me and decided to not to go back to to the hotel. My tour guide suggested another hotel to stay at and have dinner before going to the airport back to Cairo. It was a great hotel and wonderful dinner. If you are going to Luxor DON'T USE THIS HOTEL you will regret it!
