An actual Palace
Beautiful place. It’s a literal palace. Grounds are gorgeous. Building needs a little bit of fixing up. FYI you can smoke indoors in Egypt. Beauty of view of the Nile. Walking distance from Luxor temple. Staff was exceptional!

This is THE place to stay in Luxor!! The location, the gardens, the beautiful rooms! The amazing breakfast! Don’t doubt it! The staff was great as well and made our stay perfect. The hotel is walking distance from the Luxor Temple and it has gardens and pools to relax. One of the best hotels I’ve stayed at.

Well managed historic royal property. The Egyptian kingdom crown is engraved on the original window's glass. The rooms are hilariously wide and the furniture is classic master pieces. The whole experience is not just a hotel stay, it is a time travel experience.
Ahmed, us1 night family trip
Good 6.0
The food was better when we last stayed there twelve years ago. Service remains at a high standard, but the property requires more regular maintenance. We were also charged at a rate higher than the one we booked on Expedia and we would appreciate Expedia confirming that we had made a booking at USD 160 and not USD 210. Please advise.
