Steigenberger Nile Palace Luxor
Ranked #5 of 54 Hotels in Luxor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 September 2007

I stayed at Le Meridien Luxor the very first time i came to Egypt back in 2003. I wasnt sure what to expect of Egypt, its always been a dream to travel here as i was interested in the history of Egypt when i was at school. When we first arrived i was amazed at how stunning this hotel was, it was like a palace inside & the staff were excellent.

The bell captain is so sweet, his name is Mahmoud, we received a warm welcome from him & he even delivered flowers to my room which i thought was nice. He showed us around the hotel & we went to try some Shisha, this was when i became a true "Shisha Queen" as the Egyptians say to me. Hehe. I loved the taste of it, it was really nice.

The hotel has recently changed it name to The Nile Palace. I you are planning to go here then either ask for Meridien Luxor or Nile Palace because not all tour operators/travel agents have the new name.

Unique Qualities: The pool at Le Meridien Luxor is fabulous, you get a great view of the River Nile & the Valley of the Kings at the other side of the Nile. The pool is quite small & it is abit cold but its nice when you've been sunbathing for a while.

We paid for a Nile View room & it was well worth the extra cost, the views were unbelievable. I loved it. There is plenty to do at the hotel, shops, bars & there are a couple of restaurants too. The hotel is close to all the major attractions in Luxor too which is good.

Id recommend this hotel to anyone, i had a great time & would go back for some excellent winter sun. December was the perfect time of year as it wasnt too humid.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days after a 7day cruise on the nile and also 3 days in cairo.

The hotel is very well kept and the swimming pool is very clean and very welcoming in the heat of the day.
Food at the pool side bar was good and also the service was excellent. One comment I will make about the food was at the italian reastaurant just beware if you like lasgne don't have it at this restaurant as they don't make it how we would make it and it put me off slightly.

Other than that the hotel is fantastic, there is dancing in the evening in the court yard and also the dancers do water aerobics in the day which is fun to watch. The room was very clean and the room service was very good.

I would recommend staying at this hotel to anyone.

My husband and I have just returned from a fortnight in Luxor where we stayed at the Nile Palace. We can honestly say it is one of the better hotels we have stayed in on holiday.

The staff are pleasant, helpful and friendly and some nice little touches are provided. My husband had a birthday whilst we were there and was presented with a beautiful cake complete with candle and Egyptian rendition of "Happy Birthday". My up coming birthday was also acknowledged in a similair manner !

The pool was wonderful - overlooking the River Nile and the Valley of the Kings.

The rooms in the hotel are well appointed, although we were originally allocated a Nile view room in one of the corners with a wooden partition separating us from next door - the people in the room next door looking directly into our room ! When we asked if we could be moved to a room with a more private balcony it was done quickly and without fuss.

We were only on a Bed and Breakfast tariff but the breakfasts were wonderful - egg men included. We ate at the Italian restaurant in the hotel and used room service a few times and found the food to be good - if a little expensive.

Good places to eat close to the hotel are Jems (if you like an alcoholic drink with your meal), Maxims (no alcohol) and Snobs (no alcohol). There's also a KFC and Pizza Hut close by - the manager of the KFC is a very helpful man called Noby.

Bottled water bought at the hotel was very expensive 110 EP (£1.10) for a large bottle - when the little bazaar just round the corner charges 20 EP (20p) for the same thing !

The mini bars in the rooms seem to be a souce of confusion when adding up end of stay bills with some of the people we talked to (ourselves included) being charged for things they didn't have or as in our case charged twice - so check your final bill carefully. It was rectified when pointed out - but it shouldn't happen so regularly in a 5 star hotel.

Outside the hotel is a completely different story and to get anywhere in Luxor you must be blinkered and ignore the constant hassling which accompanies every step outside. Quite amusing at first, but very annoying after a few days.

As previous people have mentioned on TA, Jolleys does good deals on all trips and this is one place you don't get hassled. The ballon ride was an unforgettable experience !

People we met who deserve a mention are Ahmed (pool attendant), the guy who opens and closes the door at the other side of the courtyard (can't remember his name but he is a big fan of Mido and Alan Shearer so he said !), our holiday rep. Hassan, and last but not least the felucca boys - Shiko and Ash !

A fantastic experience and one which we will hopefully repeat - most certainly at the Nile Palace.
