Sonesta St. George Hotel Luxor

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 February 2014

This is a very we'll run, comfortable hotel with real character. If you are looking for a repeat of the pale walls, pale wood, everything sleek & characterless style of so many hotels these days you will be disappointed. This hotel has real style! They made the stay easy with everything from a smooth, quick check-in, through the excellent selection, quality & great service at breakfast to the very comfortable Nobles Bar. All staff were very friendly & helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed here by myself at Chmas 2013, for 1 week. I got a great deal for the stay. The hotel has a lot of characater. It is classy. It was almost empty due to the situation in Egypt at the moment, so I have the lovely heated pool to myself. My room was also lovely. The staff were great. The weather is nice at this time. The only thing I did not like is how desparate people are once you leave the hotel. Its difficult to go out without being hassled by taxis, caleches, they need to calm down and leave tourists alone. I would go back to this hotel right on the Nile, view if the West bank. The breakfast was good too, with fresh orange juice. I did not do the all in, so I went to the Lantern for dinner, it was lovely.

Room Tip: Tell the staff what you want, they do their best.

Another wonderful stay at this hotel. All the staff go out of their way to make the holiday a happy and stress free one and the Hotel is maintained to the highest standard. Nothing is too much trouble and staff seem genuinely pleased when visiters return for another holiday.
Although quiet our first week, the second week the Egyptian film festival was being held in Luxor and many of the participants were staying at the Sonesta and filming in the hotel grounds.

We look forward to our next visit, and wish Egypt a successful outcome in these difficult times, and more tourists returning to Luxor.

Was there for 3 nights end of December. 100% good in every way. Breakfast on the terrace was ace. Views outstanding. Highly recommend booking this for the bargain price via travelrepublic

Cross the road, turn right, take the 1st street on the left and head down to the 'Lantern Restaurant' for the best food in town. This lovely restaurant is 5* and has such cheap prices I couldnt belive it. I would highly recommend the fillet steak meal at only 70 EGP... what a bargain for the best fillet I have ever tasted in my life!

Room Tip: A side room with a view of the nile are the best value.

It is an ok Hotel. We wanted a budget hotel, and that is what we got. The beds were fantastic, very comfortable, it was very clean and food was good. It didn't feel welcoming, and even if it was very empty, people didn't get out of their way to help you. I wouldn't come back, would go to choices 1 or 2 in trip advisor. We ended up paying twice as we thought because of a misunderstanding, so at the end, it was not worth it.

Stayed at this hotel many times, it's always a pleasure to return to
The staff do their utmost to ensure you enjoy your stay, due to lack of tourists some of the restaurants are closed but they will cook anything for you if you ask nothing is too much trouble.
I hope people will return soon,it's a beautiful place and very safe.
A big Thank You to everyone at the Sonesta I will be back soon

This is a five star hotel in an amazing position on the Nile. The whole place has a larger than life type of feel. Our bedroom was huge with a Nile view and an amazing bathroom that had all mod cons including a hands-free Japanese toilet that had written instructions and did everything ( well almost) for you. Everything was opulent but well done but actually the best thing was the Nile, slowly gliding by with all kinds of craft on it - lots available to hire. Altogether a truly memorable experience.
