We stayed here in oct 11 for 1 week B&B. The hotel is located just outside of Luxor, which is nice, as the centre of Luxor isn't the greatest! The room was very pleasant, however, the bathroom hasn't seen a thorough clean in a while. Whilst in the (very low to the floor) bath, I noticed short and curly hairs on the toilet pedestal - just what you don't want to see! Along with what appeared to be dried pee. Lovely! But apart from that, the room was fine.
The breakfast was spot on and it was nice to sit outside and look over the Nile first thing on a morning.
The pool area was lovely and on the days when we failed to snap up sun beds around the pool, we managed to get sun beds on the lawn overlooking the Nile.
The free boat ride into Luxor was great, but be prepared for being hassled once you get off the boat in Luxor. The free bus into Luxor was great too.
We did eat in the hotel, but the food was quite pricey.
Overall, a nice hotel but I would not go back. Not the hotels fault, I just wasn't keen on Luxor. After seeing all of the nearby archeological sites (which were amazing!) I was ready for home.
