we stayed at this hotel over easter with our 13 year old daughter. the hotel was spotlessly clean and the room was ok. the pool area is nice with a great view of the nile. the staff were very helpful, very pleasant with our blonde haired blue eyed daughter but not over familiar - its a nice break from the stresses of being in luxor!
the one thing this hotel is short of is a bar and evening entertainment. the pool bar serves drinks during the day but this closes very early so that when our daughter went up to bed we were stuck for something to do! there was a very nice bar just over the road and the hotel did have a bbq one evening which we really enjoyed as a family and it would have been nicer if we could have done this every night.
the people on the streets of luxor can be very hard work if not intimidating but you very quickly learn to say a very firm NO! as a result we didnt venture very far - there are lots of other hotels in the immediate area and a few good restaurants very close by so eating out wasn't a problem- we just would've liked a bar to come back to.
the hotel is a good base for all the local trips, we booked ours with a tour operator over the road and they were to a very high standard. the balloon trip is well worth its money but be prepared for all the local children crowding you at the end and take some pens etc as gifts.
