After three stays at this hotel over a span of four years my stay here has been nothing short of wonderful. First impressions do count and when I first arrived with a friend, four years ago at 5am, we were greeted with warm welcome and fresh lemon juice (still a favorite to this day), then shown to our very clean room shortly after. My friend and I felt this was the right place within the first few minutes! I returned two years later with my dad and sister and had the same wonderful greeting after arriving early in the morning from Cairo. I have since returned as a solo backpacker and am still amazed at the hospitality. In all of these trips, we didn't want tours with loads of people so they arranged a guide for just us, which was still inexpensive. We also had drivers who made us feel safe. For anyone that has been to Egypt, they know the driving can be a bit erratic if they're used to a western style of obeying traffic lights and such, but we always felt safe driving with their drivers! The location is perfect. Train station is within walking distance, as is the main bus station, restaurants galore, shopping/souvenirs because the hotel is right off of the souq (be sure to hone your negotiating skills). To top off the experience, the staff can and DO help with any random need you may have (and my family had them)! Oh, and the views are like few others in Egypt, and the world for that matter. On the roof terrace you can see Luxor Temple, the Nile, and the Valley of the Kings, which when lit up at night is phenomenal! With your morning tea, these views help your mind wonder about life in ancient Egypt. After four years of occasional trips to Egypt, the family that owns this hotel makes sure that all of your expectations are met! I will always return to the Nefertiti along with any family or friends that travel with me. If you want to really see and breathe Luxor and Upper Egypt, Nefertiti is the right place!
