had an excellent stay. were treated like long term friends although we only stayed one night. great value for money. the west bank trip they offer was great for us as we only had little time in luxor. been very accomodating with a few requests we had.

The first impression was Oh My Good, is this the right place? The neighbourhood is very messy and noisy. The whole place is worn out, broken furniture, missing handles, except the bathroom. This was new and clean.
The whole place is a cheap one, so do not expect a lot. After a few hours you get used to it.
Do not trust Jack. He is very very pushy. He will offer you some trips to the West Bank, Cruise on the Nile, snorkeling and diving to Hurhada or a whole day trip to Cairo. He just want to rip you off. You can organise by yourself these yourneys at the quater of the price, that he is charging you. We paid him 539 Egyptian Pound for visiting the Vest Bank. If you go by yourself you are just paying the half of the sum. So once again stay away from him.
Before going to Egypt please buy The Lonely Planet Guidebook. You will find a lot of useful information about the prices.
If you want to go to Cairo do not use the trains. It will cost you 60$ per person. Take the Superjet bus to Cairo. The price is 120 Egyptian Pound per person. The ticket office is next to the train station.
If you go to Hurghada a whole day snorkeling trip, including meals, snorkeling a boat trip will cost you 15$ per person.
Good luck, do not trust nobody in Egypt

Stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. Hotel arranged airport pickup, tours and dropoff to the train station -- all went smoothly and were very well-priced. Location is great, about a 10-15 minute walk to the Nile and Luxor Temple. Many shops, restaurants and markets right around the corner. Our room was very clean and cozy with a large bathroom. The rooftop is a great place to lounge after a long day -- WiFi works up there and in your room! Brekky (included in the price) was fantastic -- egg, crepe, bread, cheese, jam, yogurt and tea. Emmanuelle, Massud and staff are very warm and helpful. Highly recommend staying here!

As a well seasoned traveler I have been around the world, seen and done many things and stayed accomodation from shacks in the jungle to 5* hotels in cities. I am currentIy living in Sharm and my girlfriend and I wanted to get away and see some real Egyptian people and culture. I am delighted to say that nothing had prepared me for princess hotel and its lovely owners Emanuelle (French) and her Husband Massud (Egyptian). In their eyes you are a guest, friend and family member all in one! They can help you with anything that you need.... and wait for it.... they are really genuine, friendly and honest people! You wil not be hassled to buy anything but they can organise as much or as little as you like. The Hotel is in an amazing location down a safe quiet back street and 5mins to most sites in the city, so planning your day is made so much easier.Yes the hotel is basic but its so clean even your mum would stay here!!
The hotel is efficiently run and effortlessly maintains a super chilled atmosphere.
But seriously don't take my word for it..... read everyone elses reviews(as i did) and if you choose somewhere else to stay.......... your crazy!!!!! When i think of Luxor i think of Princess rather than the Temple!!!! enjoy your stay!

I was staying 2 nights in an other bad hotel, when I changed I found out Princess Hotel: The paradise. The rooms are clean and confortable, The bathroom spotless, for a really good price. The staff made me safety, especially for a single young girl: No Hassel!!! I recommend this hotel to anyone want safety place, fun place, clean place. Ask about Massud and Manuelle, the 2 managers, they are really hepfully for anything you need.
