New Radwan Hotel: A great deal

This hotel is a good deal for budget travellers. It costs EP60. Clean, spotless room, air-conditioning, private bath. It is very conveniently located - just next to the train station. There is a pastry/bread shop next to the hotel too. A great thing for someone with a sweet tooth. Though the hotel is not a big one, it does have a little swimming pool.

Novotel: Novotel -Great Central location

The Novotel in Luxor is in a great location set on the East Bank of the Nile, South of Luxor Temple. When we stayed here we paid extra for a Nile View and it was worth it, if you do not have a Nile View the view of the road is not that brilliant (although good to watch the Horse and Carriages below.

The Novotel is part of the Accor group who also own the Mercure Coralia, Winter Palace and Mercure Inn. I believe that this enables you to use the other hotels swimming pools and if you are on half board you can usually use at either of the hotels - but do check!

The hotel boasts a floating swimming pool which gives you excellent Nile views , there is also a pool bar to grab a snack. The garden at the Novotel is nice, there are some water fountains a pool table and a pizzeria at the far end. Once a week the Entertainment staff organise a pool competition. The Novotel used to have a disco on a boat that was moored next to the hotel but when we stayed it was not on every night. There is also a boat owned by the Novotel that does day cruises down to Dendara for about LE130 and this can be booked through the hotel. The cost includes the trip, a lovely buffet lunch and afternoon tea however drinks are extra.

The Breakfast is Buffet style as are most of the hotels in Luxor and eggs are cooked to order. Breakfast consists of the usual cereal, croissants, Danish pastries, toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, fried potatoes, beef sausages and tomatoes. Plus a wide range of fruit juices. Very nice!!

The lobby area near reception has a seating area bit is not particularly welcoming.
The bar at the Novotel is very nice and the barman are friendly, you can either drink inside or take your drinks outside. Be careful of the mozzies in summer as they will bite your ankles to death!

It can sometimes be a bit dead in the evenings as there is not really any entertainment ..

Nice pool and great views -make sure you pay extra for a Nile view!

Police Contact details: Hotel assistance

If you do encounter any problems, then initially approach the reception at your hotel, who should and will offer you some very handy assistance.

If you need to contact the policefor any reason, take a noe of these names as I found them to be the most helpful...

Transport Police - Major Omar Katab
Tourist Police - Col Hagez Hussen.
Maj Ashraf Shrief.

The staff at you hotel should be very helpful and also useful for interpreting and providing handy information on good deals.

Ninfea: A Nile cruiser !

A cruiseship is the best accomodation one can think of to visit all the sites at the border of the Nile. You sail along all the sites and don't have to pack and unpack every day.
There are so many cruiseships that they have to dock side by side. So, sometimes you have to walk through 4 or more ships before you finally get to your own ship!

The scenery that passes by while you relax at the pool or sit in the bar ...
