Have lost count of how many times I have stayed at this hotel since 2001, each time I visit it is just as good as the previous times! Even though all Charter flights have been cancelled from the UK, managed to fly in on Egyptair via Cairo. The staff were so happy to see me return as they weren't sure I would be able to get there.
Checked in just before midnight with a welcome drink of karkadeh waiting for me. Had a nile view room in the old block (my normal room actually), as the new block was closed. Wonderful views of the Nile especially at sunset, it is absolutely stunning! Room was spotless, bedding & towels changed every morning whilst I was at breakfast. Breakfast was plentiful. The boys where out each morning cleaning the pool ready for us all to swim. The staff at the poolside bar were wonderful always keeping me supplied with cold drinks throughout the day. Ate in the Champolion Coffee Shop some nights when I didn't want to go out which was lovely, food freshly cooked and piping hot when served.
Out and about in Luxor I never encountered any problems, felt totally safe, especially since the army where positioned at numerous points around the city. The people of Luxor are really struggling to survive due to the lack of tourists but they always have a smile for you - a smile costs nothing! I pray that the tourists DO come back as soon as possible for these hardworking people who just want to earn a living to be able to look after their families.
