    The location and grounds of the hotel are truly stunning. The staff were quite polite and were fairly helpful. The room was of a good standard however it was not of 5* standard. I paid £25 for 1 night for a double room and I think it is exceptional value for money for what you get

    The Sofitel Karnak offers good value for money. Despite the fact there were few visitors at the time all the hotel facilities were open.

    Didn't realise this was a resort hotel in every sense of the word. The swimming pool was the central feature of the hotel and the resort concept seemed to culturally clash with Luxor. For example, music, landscaping, food and sunbathing.

    The hotel is located on the bank of the Nile and has a very nice view. The grounds are also well-landscaped and well maintained.

    When I was there, the hotel had very few visitors, because of the revolution in Egypt. It was understandable that many of their services, shops, etc. were closed, because they had laid off staff. But even when there are only a few visitors, hotel management should make a point of treating those visitors well. I felt ignored by the management and staff. They made very little effort to see that I was comfortable and had what I needed. I often had to wait for service in the one cafe that was open. No staff member made an effort to ask whether I wanted food or beverages. This is a real failure of management to motivate the staff.

    Very good value for money. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good facilities.

    No coffee and tea facilities in the room. The shuttle service did not run enough times during the day or evening.

    The setting and the fact that they had a heated swimming pool and excellent tennis courts

    Service was a little slow at breakfast.

    Nice hotel garden along the Nile with shuttle boat from Karnak to Luxor.

    Not responding to Sofitel expected standard.

    10.0

    The buffet breakfast was excellent. The staff was great! Rooms were spacious!

    A kettle in the room would have been good. The "hot tub" was cold, not hot - but all other facilities were great!!! For only 30 Euros per night we upgraded to a lovely suite (though the regular room was great!) note: The hotel was good about posting fair prices for taxi rides, etc. but beware in and around luxor you will get hassled by taxi drivers and street vendors!!!! Note: a fair price from the airport to this hotel (including fee for taxi to get into the airport) is 45 Egyptian Pounds ($8 or $9 U.S. / Canadian). When we first arrived our taxi driver initially asked for 3 times this amount - luckily we bartered down - somewhat. in luxor a fair price is usually 1/3 - 1/4 of the original price they "quote" you!!!

    Nice garden and location on the Nile. A bit outskirts. Rooms might be far from reception.

    The staff at check-in and check-out is slow since years. I always come here for business and I have to plan half an hour for check in and half for check-out. This is terrible

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Away from noise of Luxor! Not as expensive as the other Sofitel in Luxor

    Second stay at hotel and it is trying to get better, the hotel is still a bit 'faulty towers' and a number of items in the rooms do not work, E.G. the hair dryer in the bathroom, the bedside light. This time they managed to find a kind size bed as paid for in my booking. If your stay is short and you do not want to pay out for the Hilton which is next door then this is a good hotel to stay in
