Great location with a picture perfect view.

Luxor is unfortunately having a bit of a rough time of it following a decline in tourist numbers after the revolution. However, the Sonesta St George manages to keep a smile on its face with charming staff and an unrivalled view of the Nile in the city. It is quite a grand place for a price suggesting a more budget hotel, which was a pleasant surprise. You are met by a lavish entrance hall with crystal chandeliers and gold decor. Although a bit more, it is well worth getting a Front Nile view. The view across to the Theban Mountains is spectacular. The rooms were clean and well kept, but Egyptian hotels, or the ones I have experienced anyway, don't always pay attention to the difference between a Kind Bed and a twin room. We were told all the Front Nile View rooms only had twins but were more than happy to push the beds together and remake them.
Location wise, it is only a 10 minute walk to Luxor Temple, but I would recommend getting a cab as the lack of tourism has made the horse and cart drivers more pushy than usual. Also, the infrastructure in the city is in decline.
