Simple but Fun

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 22, 2007

The St Joseph was a good valued hotel, clean with excellant staff and a friendly ambiance throughout. Unlike some of the big named places this family run hotel made your stay pleasant. Food was good and the bars informal and freindly. We stayed in for entertainment one night and had a great Egyptian evening non of the guests could fail to have a good time.

Unique Quality: Roof garden and pool with views over the Nile.

The Most Fantastic views of the Nile

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 8, 2004

This Hotel is wonderful if you want to get a great shot of the Nile river from a distance. Each room is supposed to have views of the River and the room we stayed in most certainly did, in fact the views were fantastic as the picture shows. Owned and operated by a Christian Egyptian this Hotel seemed very popular with families, tour groups and people like us who just walked off the street.

Unique Quality: The lovely thing about this Hotel is that the views it has from the rooms really are second to none. The rooms are all very clean and tidy and the service I had from one my cleaner of my room was wonderful. Although Yohana spoke very little English and my Arabic was next to nothing at that time, we managed to get along very well and he was a delightful person to meet during my stay in Luxor. He and the Doorman at my Hotel in Cairo made my stay in Egypt that little bit more enjoyable.

The only disadvantage I found with this Hotel was the lack of a living area where I could relax before retiring to my room. There is a seating area as you walk into the Hotel but I guess I had been a bit spoilt after having heaps of room at the Victoria Hotel in Cairo (another Hotel that I can reccomend). This hotel has a lovely roof top pool, a nice basement style bar and it puts on great entertainment at Christmas time from the snake charmer to the belly dancer. It is within easy walking distance from the Corniche and there is no real need for a taxi unless you want to take a day trip out to visit the Valley of the Kings. This Hotel has a few Taxi drivers hanging around the Hotel all ready to bounce on you when you step foot out of the Hotel so be prepared for that if you come and stay here. Just ignore them!

Luxors best cheap and cheerful hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 30, 2004

We stayed here for 2 weeks in the heat of summer. Rooms fully airconditioned, cleaned daily. Close to everything really in Luxor, the most it ever cost us to get anywhere on a horse n cart was 1 egp! ( we didnt always walk as had elderly lady with us!) Food always great, we were there half board and food was always good, and plenty of it.

Unique Quality: Towels put in cute little poses every day to amuse the kids! Pool on top of roof great for letting the kids swim in while we sat next to them and ordered food and drinks from the bar while looking over the river Nile, truly spectacular. People very very friendly and they loved the kids

Directions: near sonesta st george and only 1 egp away from Luxor temple!

Friendly and hospitable

I have stayed at the St Joseph a number of times, its a pretty basic hotel, but rooms are very clean and most of them have wonderful views of the Nile. The rooftop pool is small, but good, and they serve the best Burger in Luxor!
Happy hour in the basement bar is always worth a visit.
Staff are friendly and helpful, and because it is small, they very quickly get to know their guests on a personal level.
Highly recommended if you arent looking for 5 star

Directions: In a quieter area of town, not exactly peaceful though. Close to the new Meridien and the Sonesta St George.

A small but friendly place

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 8, 2003

A small but family run hotel with 7 floors and a small pool on the roof.
The rooms are basic but very clean and comfortable. The staff are all friendly and some of the room attendants do towel sculptures.
It is just off the nile and the the views from the roof top bar/pool and beautiful. As it is off the 'main drag' the hassle factor outside is much less. Only a couple of taxis and caleche drivers who you get to know. Also, local buses run past and it is easy to get to the main tourist area by asking 'Macdonalds'? and all for 25

Unique Quality: Although the pool is small, its position on the roof makes it cooler than ground level pools and the views are amazing. There are 2 restaurants serving good food and 2 bars serving alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and cocktails. There is a disco in the basement. Because of its size, you get to know the staff and any problems are dealt with immediatly. i would thoroughly recommend it for the family or budget traveller.

Directions: Opposite Club Med
