Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Sonesta St. George is the Egyptian luxury hotel par excellence in its design and architecture. The entry is Pharaonic, marble reigns everywhere. The comfort too. Luxurious rooms, four restaurants, an English bar, a swimming pool overlooking the Nile, various services and program excursions. It is a good snazzy place.

    Location 6.22 /10

    The hotel is located along the Nile, fifteen minutes on foot from the temple of Luxor, a little away from the city centre (it takes about ten minutes to the beginning of the road from downtown). This location, south of the city, is an advantage for those seeking quietness and wanting to take advantage of the mild evening along the Nile. The airport is 4.5 miles away. It takes about ten to fifteen minutes by taxi.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The furniture is modest, light wood and green and cream walls. Egyptian style. Large rooms of 270 feet² with possibility of connecting rooms. Each has a large television screen with a dozen foreign channels (including CNN). Direct telephone line for international calls, air conditioning, safe and mini-bar. There is a balcony in all rooms. The marble bathroom is very practical and very comfortable, with bathtub and hair dryer. The basin has a telescopic shower to wash your hair. Choose rooms overlooking the Nile.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Built in 1997, the large building, in square form and made of rose concrete planted along the Nile, is still quite new and obviously well maintained. The architecture is both Egyptian and Italian (lots of marble, white and green, frescoes in Venetian style). The stucco facade is flanked by Pharaonic columns. Very chic, the entrance is lit by a chandelier with pendants made of gigantic crystal that looks like a zeppelin! The rooms are very modest and comfortable. The corridors are chic (lots of light wood, earthenware, dark green and green almond, indirect lighting). The 8 floors are occupied by 204 luxurious rooms and 20 suites. A third of them overlook the Nile (the others have a view on the street and the city. These are less attractive. This side of the city hosts shops and warehouses The view is not always interesting). Note: a large shopping centre - well-patronized with a business centre, a large English bar (the "Nobles") with a library whose windows overlook the pool. The swimming pool (large and circular with a separate area for children) and its garden overlooking the Nile, are great. It has a ramp for the disabled.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The cuisine is varied. Four good restaurants. Many people who are not hotel guests also come to eat there. The main restaurant, the "Serapis" (286 seats), which overlooks the pool, doesn't have a very appealing decor (modern tables and chairs, modest but without originality). Every day, breakfast buffets have a different theme - different tastes of the world. Breakfast in the Serapis is served buffet style, sumptuous and varied, high-quality, international and oriental: there is a large selection of breads and pastries in addition to sweet-salty dishes. Before the room, a beautiful fresco (Venetian style) represents the terrace of the Old Cataract in Aswan. In this space you will find a pool table. The "Beban", a small Italian restaurant (80 seats, open 24 h/24) is remarkable for its affordability and its varied menu of delicious pasta and real Italian ice creams! Hats off to the Japanese restaurant, the "Miyako" (80 seats). The decoration is exquisite. Brown lacquer and dark green fabrics, the atmosphere is refined and the cuisine delicious (expect to pay 50 to 77 pounds for a main dish). The "Jeb's", the swimming pool restaurant serves remarkable apetizers, noon to 5 PM. Also an elegant bar library, the "Nobles" programmes live performances (music and vocals) each evening. The price is about 12 pounds for a beer, and 75 pounds for a bottle of Egyptian wine.

    To know

    The Sonesta guests are Italian, North American, Japanese and English. However, they are received by a friendly and welcoming staff. The service is excellent and you can eat at different places to avoid the pitfall of open spaces and recreate a very intimate atmosphere inside of this huge hotel. Discretion is assured in this hotel which is suitable for both couples and families (special programme, "Just Us Kids", provided for children). All services are paid, à la carte: excursions with a felucca boat, discovering the local wildlife, organizing tournaments and so on.). The pool at the edge of the Nile is really very pleasant.

      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.

      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.

      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.
