Saint Joseph Hotel
Ranked #29 of 54 Hotels in Luxor
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

This is the best hotel during my trip to Egypt. Note this is not a Four Seasons, but for the price you pay it's great. Rooms are clean, spacious and the breakfast is delicious. It is a bit far from downtown luxor but you can hire a calesh for 3 pounds, so it is not a big issue. There is bank near by in case you need have change money.

Stayed: December 2012, travelled as a couple

I have, for a long time, used this hotel for my visits to Luxor and stay with it, for a very good reason, it is cheap and excellent. The rooms are good and comfortable, and the ambience of the public areas are very good and easily accessed. The roof restaurant is a nice place to spend a few minutes or several hours, with an excellent stocked bar a café service, together with a small but adequate swimming pool. The staff are all friendly and will bend over backwards to make your stay, memorable. Yes, it is a budget hotel but with a difference and one I will use, time and again. Finally, the food, the breakfast is good, and plentiful, and should you opt for half board, either before you go, or on arrival, is excellent value. Going back real soon

Room Tip: Ask for a Nile view:-)

this is a great littel hotel small but verty personal. not as glam as the rest but the food was and is the best, tghe views of the nile and the valley of the kings and hatsipsuit tempel are fan bloody tastic, the staff are great, I love this place its my fav in all the world. love it. love it love it. ive been almost all around the world and Luxor and Ciro are by far the most exciting places I have been, dont buy the tour tickets to visit the pyramids use the local travel agents you will save at least £80 or €100 each way and for each person...... please try to come here st js is great but basic its a cheap hotel for max fun littel Dollar......xx

A good price for what you get, the hotel is clean and pool service is excellent, the only down side was the breakfast which I did not think was of the a good standard, although the roof top food is excellent and good value for money.

Stayed at this hotel twice and will always use when I go back to luxor. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Due to it being a small hotel you don't get locals having access because they are stopped at the reception. There is a small pool on the roof top which is adequate and nice being only available to guests. There is a small restaurant bar also on the roof for poolside stacks and drinks. I only go bed and breakfast but full board is available. The breakfast is a buffet style and the chef makes excellent omletes. It is not in the busy area so you have to walk 5-10min to luxor centre, but there are horse carriages along the outside that are very reasonable. If you want a pleasant, basic and reasonable priced holiday Saint Joseph hotel is a good choice.

Room Tip: Nile view are available

just got back from luxor for my third time normally i stay at the el luxor hotel a wonderful hotel so i have been very spoilt this year it was a last minute thing booked 2 weeks before i went as the saint joseph was in a place i knew and was very well situated for getting and also very cheap i opted for it well you got what you paid for it was kept clean everyday the food was basic but ok the roof top bar restaurant served great food the staff were friendly and helpful the hotel was in a perfect place for getting around by foot so there is money saved there so if you want to go to egypt and your on a budget its the perfect place on the down side the hotel is a bit tired and shabby but as i said clean the pool area i would say is the biggest let down up on the roof not very big and not much room for sun bed only about 10 also the men with there horse and carriages park outside and the hotel allow the men to sit on the hotel steps so you do get bullied each time you leave the hotel

Room Tip: rooms at the rear are quieter but you lose the view of the nile

We have be to Luxor around 25 times and allways stayed at the st Joseph hotel
The staff are allways polite and will help in anyway they can ! reception staff are a bit up themselves ! but dont let that influence you into thinking rest of staff are the same,
The food is good in the restuaraunt, And on the roof they will make you anything you want, had to show them what beans on toast was lol but they did it for me,
was ill one day and the staff could not be more helpfull even the cleaner made me a drink of lemon tea see if that helped, the roof staff gave me some toast as i couldnt eat anything,
The rooms are cleaned everyday and the cleaners never ask you to leave the room they will wait till you go out to get it done, On the roof you have Motto the manager great bloke and the bar staff / waiters Coco, Anger, George all great lads, the roof bar will stay open as long as your spending money ! not just sitting with glass of water, Don't forget even tho your on holiday ! they still have homes to go to ! travel agent once wanted us go stay at the Sonesta st, George 5* we said no cant be doing with 10 bob millionairs an snobs who think they are above you ? so if you want cheap hol nice hotel an staff ? stay at St Joseph's

Room Tip: ticked fitness and spa terrible ! cos not got one ! hahaha
