Stayed 2 nights Pros: Pool was a decent size and not too busy. Close to local restaurants (Kings Head across the road). Nice view of the Nile and the VOK beyond especially sunset. Staff pleasant. Cons: Our first rooms AC emitted a terrible gas diesel smell, engineer sent up, promised it would be fixed in 10 min but it still was bad. Had to ask to have a new room and swapped to one with a worse view. Coffee at breakfast just bland weak percolator coffee - no options for other styles of coffee. Omelettes adverage with sometimes raw egg still inside. ATM outside the hotel so you have taxi drivers approaching you but they are okay and enjoy a laugh.

Hotel's Favourite
Beautiful, cozy and well decorated hotel. The ambience is stylish, the surroundings are fantastic, and the environment is amazing. The restaurants and bars offer a great variety of dietary options, freshly and deliciously cooked dishes on daily basis. Additionally, there is room service available. The swimming pool is simply fenomenal, very quiet and facing the river Nile and Valley of the King's and Queen's. Rooms and bathrooms are very comfortable, spacious, clean and tidy with good attention to details. The team is friendly, professional and very welcoming. Special mention to Wahid and Malak (front office desk) for their invaluable commitment to help us have a wonderful stay, and Rasha for organizing our stay with endless care and keeping an eye on us. Also to Hanny (transport manager) for arranging our journey to visiting the wonders of Luxor. Definitely, highly recommended.

Spent 5 nights after being in Cairo & a Nile cruise. It was a lovely relaxing time, only gripe is the noise from the road at night with car/bike horns. Food & drink very reasonable. Pool area is great and we received excellent service from Ahmed & Nagha. Ahmed was always around to move sun umbrellas & supply towels. Nagha was on the go all day serving food & drinks. Both always had a smile for everyone & are a credit to the hotel.

With all the great reviews of this hotel, we felt quite disappointed during our stay here. Our room was along the street so it was very noisy till very late. The guest next to our room started yelling at his neighbor from the balcony then they took the fight to the hallway. We didn't feel very safe with this going on. It took a long time before hotel staff stepped in. Their "authentic" Japanese restaurant was far from its claim and they got my wife's order wrong. The server said I ordered what was delivered but I've been with my wife 10+ years, I would know what she likes and always order. They eventually fixed the issue but it took awhile. She had a couple bits and due to the bad taste, she discarded the entire meal. The view of the Nile is nice and the buffet they offered at night had the best chicken we had in Egypt so that was a plus. WiFi here is HORRIBLE. The hair dryer broke while my wife was using it. This is an older hotel so keep that in mind in regards to the esthetics of the room. To be honest, we are shocked they are a 5-star hotel.

I decided to stay at the Sonesta because its quality far exceeded the pricing. I wanted a place to relax and feel comfortable, and this was the spot. The staff is incredible, they go the extra mile to ensure you feel welcome and accommodate beyond expectations. The rooms are all very nice, love the old school feel of the place. The breakfast buffet was very good. The laundry service was also very good, and are able to turn around requests quickly. The team in the shops located in the lobby were great for information and shopping, even outside their own shops. They would advise me on prices and quality, and were very honest. I ended up purchasing very high quality gemstones from them. The gym was disappointing when I first arrived, with new machines not fully assembled. That all changed when Mustafa started working as the trainer. He rearranged the rooms, brought in sanitation spray, fixed machines, and even brought in free weights to use. This changed my entire experience, as I worked out everyday. I suspect as long as Mustafa is around, the gym will continue to get better. I also appreciate the spa team, who were great when I needed to use the sauna and steam room. The Pool area has a great staff, they are attentive and ensure you are taken care of (to include a constant rotation of umbrellas. Nagha is the best!!! She takes care of you and works very hard. The bar and restaurant staff were also very professional. Usama has a great personality, and the guest really enjoy the teams company. The two recommendations I would make is, 1) find a way to play a longer song, or songs, on the speakers in the lobby and bar. The 20 second loop of one music verse is a little repetitive to say the least; 2) the wifi situation is pretty rough. Constantly needing to get new vouchers because the system cannot log out old sessions and considers new ones simultaneous is a slight annoyance. I would return, with my family and enjoy the entire stay here again.

Staff was excellent, checking in and out was fast and simple. Room was very comfy with a view of the Nile and food was tasty. Location perfect. Sunset from the pool side was beautiful. I would recommend staying here as it’s the best hotel in Luxor and good value for money.

Had a great time staying at Sonesta and would recommend this to anyone. Food was great and staff were all extremely nice. Great time chilling out at the pool next to the Nile after some long day tours of the temples. Good location for pickups from your tour operator.
