Excellent staff and stylish hotel.

Pros: The staff were attentive and helpful. The reception area and common areas were all beautiful .
Cons: A bar with a view over the Nile would have been wonderful. We ate in the Royal Bar one evening but dining options were limited. Room rather small.
Location: Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor Temples, Valley of the Queens. A host of antiquity. Balloon rides and Nile activities.S
Very welcoming and tours and taxis were easy to book. We had a room overlooking the garden, which was comfortable but on the small side. Good size bathroom , all very well air conditioned. A very stylish and palatial hotel.
