Luxor is very quiet due to the dificut circumstances in that part of the world and tourism is at an all time low.
The hotel was almost empty. There was only us round the pool almost every day.
We have been to this hotel many times and the location is excellent. However, this time the lack of tourism is showing. Its all a bit run down and faded. Its still an amazing place to stay and the pool and gardens are fantastic. The pool could have been cleaned more often though, a bit gritty with sand at the bottom.
We have a twin room with Nile view. The room was cleaned every day with fresh towels and bedding. There is a small fridge and a kettle with tea/coffe/sugar. The milk provided is dried so we buy our own from a small supermarket called " Arkwrights " a few streets away. this is run by an English lady & her Egyptian partner.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and Mustafa the breakfast waiter is excellent. The breakfast itself offers a selection of foods, both European and Arabic. However there is little choice day after day.The dining room is spacious with lots of room between the tables.
The hotel manager Mr Ali is really efficient and speaks good English and very informative.
A must to visit is the " Animal Care in Egypt " hospital just outside Luxor and any taxi will take you. They treat donkeys/horses & cats/dogs/small pets for free.They rely on donations and are suffering due to the lack of tourists. Look at their web site and see if you can take anything out to them off the " wish list " Its a differant place to go when you get fed up with the sun lounger !!
We will always go back to this lovely hotel as long as it stays open. Its such a shame no one is going and I fear that many of the big hotels will close and we will be devastated.
