We stopped at the Mercure in April 2009 and were very impressed from the moment we arrived. The rooms are very clean and staff very polite and helpful. The pool area is very nice and spacious.
There is a 24 hour restaurant in the hotel and we ate there every night for our tea. It was very reasonbly priced with good food. There is also an Italiian and a French restaurant in the hotel if you wanted to spend a little more money.
The bar had a pleasant atmosphere but we didn't enjoy the entertainment that was put on. This wasn't a problem though as there was plenty of seating available outside and there bar staff would keep checking on us to see if we wanted any more drinks.
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone as a base to explore Luxor or to have a relaxing week.
Just one word of warning, not a fault of the hotel but any tourists should be aware of this. On our first evening we left the hotel for a walk and straight away were approached by a gentleman called Captain Ahmed. He owns a small boat on the nile and wanted us to book some tours with him to Banana Island and the West Bank. At first we agreed and even handed over a small deposit. He then offered to take us on a tour of the local area. We said okay but soon realised our mistake as he lead us down a filthy back alley to a shop ran by someone he knew. We felt intimidated as we were clearly expected to buy something. We demanded to be taken back our hotel and did not go on Captain Ahmed's tours. The next day we spoke to our rep about Captain Ahmed. We were told that he was not trust worthy and other guests had paid up front for tours with him only to be asked for more money for taxis/ entrance to The Valley of The Kings etc during the tour.
