Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Pyramisa Isis enjoys a prime location in the city centre of Luxor: close to all the main tourist sights of the city and next to the Nile... It boasts a splendid view that is particularly splendid from the 2 beautiful outdoor swimming pools or the hookah corner, which is especially pleasant in the evening. This is a standard level establishment that guests will mainly choose for its outdoor facilities.

    Location 6.13 /10

    The Pyramisa Isis is located some 7 mi from Luxor airport, close to all the main tourist sights: the Luxor Temple (1.5 mi); the Karnak Temple (3.5 mi); the Valley of the Kings (7.5 mi); and the main souk (1.5 mi). If you travel by taxi, you should agree on the price with the driver before getting in. The same applies if you choose to take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage, but generally speaking, the prices are reasonable.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The hotel houses 480 guest rooms, 43 of which are suites, spread out over 6 levels. When you book, you should ask for a room on the upper levels, as they afford a better view of the Nile. As it is, most of them (362 to be exact) face the Nile, but 118 look out onto the city. The standard rooms provide a decent level of comfort. We weren't that impressed with the wall-to-wall carpet (parquet is always preferable), which doesn't blend in nicely with the rest of the room. The wooden furniture isn't exactly brand new but the rooms are overall quite pleasant and well equipped: they have beautiful curtains and sheets, the bedding is comfortable, and there is tea and coffee tray, a television, and a safe (no extra charge). The bathroom is very pleasant and spacious. It includes a large bathtub, towels, and hospitality products.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1998 and renovated in 2008, the Isis belongs to the Pyramisa group (that owns 5 other hotels in Egypt) and is one of Luxor's biggest hotels. The white facade is particularly impressive but doesn't convey how big the establishment actually is. Once inside, however, guests get some idea of the scale of the place, with its massive lobby, a piano bar, shops, a night club, and numerous rooms. You'll never feel alone here. Despite the high number of guests, the establishment is spacious enough not to be overcrowded. The atmosphere in the lobby is a bit cold and we much preferred the exterior facilities: 2 beautiful swimming pools with deckchairs and sunshades surrounded by beautiful and well-kept gardens. To the side there are 3 restaurants that serve various specialties à la carte (Italian, Asian, and Egyptian). Our favourite spot was the Badea Cafe, located at the far end of the complex. The setting is simply splendid: small benches, massive cushions, and tables strewn around the place. It's the perfect spot to enjoy some tea. Just picture yourself puffing away at your hookah and contemplating the boats sailing up and down the Nile in the setting sun. It truly is a unique setting.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The complex includes several restaurants, but only the main restaurant, the Lotus, caters to all-inclusive guests. Located next to the lobby, it boasts a large room with a capacity of 400 diners where all the meals are served as a buffet. It is not the most intimate of places, with the tables being so close together, but apart from that it is pleasant enough. The buffet is varied and beautifully presented, with a large choice of starters, main courses, and desserts. Breakfast is served from 5:00am till 10:00am, and dinner is served from 7:00pm till 10:00pm. Next to the swimming pool you will find 2 restaurants that offer an à la carte menu with various specialties. The first is an Italian restaurant that is open from noon till 11:00pm, and the second one is a Chinese restaurant that is only open for dinner, from 6:00pm till 11:00pm. We appreciated the locally inspired interior decorating and the large bay windows that look out onto the swimming pool and the Nile in the background. Next to the swimming pool there is also an aquatic bar (12:00pm-9:00pm), which is quite pleasant and serves various beverages and snacks. Finally, there is a hookah bar at the far end of the complex and another one in the lobby.

      The Mercure Coralia Luxor is a good family hotel, which is outstanding for its green spaces and restaurant services. The use of traditional furniture in the suites is an excellent idea. It is a pity that the general decoration does not match this decor.

      Built in the late 19th century facing the Nile, surrounded by a lush garden, the Old Winter Palace has a Victorian style which seems initially a little cold. Its immense rooms and high ceilings are what first impress the visitor. Nevertheless an elegant hotel, it is a suitable resort to spend your holiday, just a few minutes away by horse-drawn carriage from the Pharaonic relics in Luxor.

      A massive and original establishment best suited to families.

      The Sofitel Karnak is a luxury establishment that you are unlikely to forget in a hurry. Indeed, it boasts all sorts of fine features by which you might remember your stay: big open spaces, beautiful plants, peace and quiet, a wide range of facilities, and a quality level of service. We especially liked the location at the heart of a superb palm grove next to the Nile and the fact that it is such a nice place to relax without being disturbed. This all makes for a very pleasant setting well suited to couples and families who want to intersperse a relaxing break with cultural outings.
