Exceptional 10.0
The receptionist was very helpful and let us already check in even though it was quite early in the morning. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The hotel is a little bit far from the city centre, so I found it quite helpful that they fixed the fares with taxis to any place in the city or elsewhere. I also like the fact that the hotel recycles. There are bins for different sort of materials everywhere so everyone can help. The rooms are nicely decorated and quite spacious.

Disappointing hotel
I was a little disappointed with the hotel. It claimed to have wifi in the rooms but was only in the reception area. I had booked a single room with a queen size bed but it was two singles, when I mentioned this they said it was ok they will push them together. I told them not a chance and they changed my room eventually. Being in Luxor your there to see the sites,Valley of the kings etc. There idea of assisting you organize trips to see the sights was phoning you a taxi which you then needed to haggle for twenty minutes to get a price for the trip. The restaurant was mediocre at best just a buffet. It is a Mercure hotel so you expect certain standards, my first impression as I arrived was that half the letters on the sign were unlit and was an ominous portent of things to come.

Exceptional 10.0
Just had my second visit to this hotel. Had a really fab, relaxing time. The staff are the best. Very friendly and helpful without being pushy. The pool is lovely. Beautiful location. Bit far out of town but taxis are immediately available and very cheap. They wait and bring you back - even for hours! The rooms are clean and comfortable with comfy beds. Lots of space with nice outdoor area. The food is varied and plentiful with lots of choices - better than the last time. Didn't do any trips as done them all before. The only downside is wifi access. Only available in reception and bars and a bit sketchy there. There are 3 wifi boxes you can rent for your room but you need to get in quick. I would highlyrecommend this hotel.

Excellent stay at this hotel for 3 nights. The service was excellent with nothing too much trouble for the staff. The food was amazing. Such an enormous choice. The lentil soup was the best I've ever tasted. Would definitely return to this hotel in the future. X

The hotel is beside the Nile although I believe only a couple of rooms have a glimpse of the river.

Overall a thumbs up!!
Hotel has great facilities including squash and tennis courts, but clearly it is a bit past it’s prime. All staff were helpful. As I don’t eat eggs, breakfast was a bit bleak but they soon had the head chef on the case to make something to satisfy. Thanks for the extra effort. Most facilities not used much as the hotel survives on many coach loads of overnight guests but not many here for several days or a week. To avoid listening to cases being dragged over tiles first thing in the morning, Id ask for a room furthest from reception. WiFi is a constant battle but there is deprecate WiFi available at the Karnak restaurant area (great lunches) and the sundowner bar. Make full use of these areas for WiFi reception. Pool is great if not a tad cold in Nov but once in for a couple of mins you don’t notice that anymore. Be brave, jump in!

Very nice hotel. Lovely pool area and gardens and right next to the Nile. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Not brand new but everything works. What made this hotel special was the staff. Not one grumpy, unhelpful one among them. They're always smiling and happy to get anything and have a little but never for too long. My only criticism is the wifi which is only available in reception. I knew this before I went but it was still inconvenient.
