“Very big problem”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2010

After we left our luggage at the reception for a short trip in Luxor we could not find our mobile phones and we've checked before, they were there, but when we came back they were no more there. The manager only said to us that this was not possible because the portier was there and also a policeman at the entrance, but we never found our phones. We have a good insurance but i would not recommend this hotel. The manager looks like a 30's gangster.

Stayed October 2010, travelled as a couple

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2009

when i first walked into golden palace hotel, i already knew my friend had made a mistake. the people at the counter didnt' understand a word of what we were saying and kept asking us to wait 'one minute' for our room. we ended up waiting about 45. lobby was dirty with stained couches. rooms were minimalist, with a hugely loud (But very cold) air conditioner and usable, but dirty bathrooms and tiny little hard towels. they kept our passports forever because they kept saying they needed to copy them, but noone ever did. ended up booking another hotel for my second night. location was a little off the path of the main attractions, walkable to luxor temple, but wouldn't want to go much further. you can catch a cab or one of those annoying touts with the horse-drawn carriages. wifi close by but none in hotel. several food options in vicinity.

We were going to stay at the Nubian Oasis hostel, but that was a terrible dive with non-existent mattresses, so they recommended the Golden Palace as their sister hotel. From the other reviewer it seemed we shared the same TV hookup, ie sparks flying...., defective shower faucets, cats [---] by our breakfast table (not much of a breakfast) and murky pool. Rooftop bar has a nice view, and good restaurant food around as well as cheap internet access. Don't pay for their overpriced tours ...the guide doesn't speak English and you're rushed through everything. Better go to Jolly Tours on the Corniche. Maybe higher prices, but you'll have a great experience.
