Luxor, Egypt Hotels

Updated July 2006

There are many different hotels in Luxor, Egypt ranging from budget to expensive colonial buildings. Our favorite hotels are:

Sofitel Old Winter Palace Hotel
Located in the heart of Luxor, this beautiful building (built in 1886) is a welcome retreat after a day of sightseeing.  The hotel has relaxing gardens, a heated outdoor pool.  The restaurant has slipped in recent years and we now recommend eating elsewhere.  Our top hotel recommendation. Ask to stay in the old wing.

Hilton Luxor
On the west bank of the Nile river, 15 minutes outside the city center but only 5 minutes from Karnak, this modern hotel is a welcome retreat for someone whose primary goal in Luxor is to see the temples and tombs.

Happy Land Hotel   Phone: 37 18 28
In downtown Luxor, this is a clean hotel in a great location - a good choice for budget travelers.
