Our first visit to Luxor is just overnight stay We pick up others who are doing various tours of Egypt and Jordon, as many of the tours overlap throughout the journey group sizes change. Luxor is a bustling city also and venturing into the streets exposes you to many requests for shopping, restaurants, taxis, buggy rides etc etc.
We were up even earlier than the previous day getting up at 4:15am for a 4:30 pickup. When we went down to the lobby there were 8 others waiting. It was comforting to see that we were not the only people going ballooning. After a quick drive to another hotel we were on to motor boats to cross the Nile. On the boats we were served …
After the big day yesterday it was time to catch a break and relax. Following a late breakfast we relaxed by the pool. In the afternoon we took a taxi to the Luxor Museum. Before going to the museum we walked along to some shops looking for something to eat. We asked at the souvenir shop and they took us inside and they got someone …
21 April Overnight the boat cruised to Luxor and we had a big day planned. As part of the cruise we had expected a tour of the Necropolis of Thebes; however the trip now also included a trip to the Temples of Karnak and Luxor. After checking out of the boat it was on to a bus and off to the Valley of the Kings with a short stop at the Colossi of …

Historical Traveler Reviews Pyramisa Isis Hotel & Suites Luxor
We have just returned from a week at Prymisa Isis Hotel, Luxor, Egypt. The hotel is magnificent and dirctely on the Nile with panormic view. The weather was fine .The room was clean and well equiped .It was quiete and away from any noise even during the buisy hours. It was very relaxing especially when just sitting in the balocany watching the sailing boats and the other side of the bank.The staff were great and very helpful. They were very carfully monitord by their manager .The food was freshely cooked and a lot of varieties with plenty of it . There are three restruents and you have to pay extra if you eat in the Italine and Chinese ones although you pay just few english pounds. The staff are expecting Packshes, tips, although you are under no obligation and it is not a lot as a pound worth 10 Egyptians. We enjoyed many evenings going to the huge tent in the evening and smoked the Shesha and drinking Beers. You will be very welcomed by Hagag and his team Mahmmod
Hi we travelled to Luxor Egypt late September. We stayed at the Pyramisa Hotel in Luxor. Weather was great. Hotel we stayed in was brilliant heard a lot of mixed reviews and was espically worried since I was travelling with a 5 and 3 year old. Hotel catered for all our needs went out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one. The staff were not only efficent but extremely friendly. Felt as if I was staying with a big family. The hotel manager bent over backwards and expected the same from his staff. I tell you I have never been so spoilt.
Our Marvelous Holiday
We are a family with three children and we found the Hotel facilities to be excellent. The children had a great time in the swimming pools, and the restaurant and bar staff were extremely friendly and helpful. In the evening the two singers provided great music in the bar, and involved the children by showing them how to play the instruments etc. We had a thoroughly lovely time both during the day and in the evening. We shall certainly visit again.

My family and I just got back from Egypt. We stayed at ISIS for two weeks of wonderful memories. Staff from Reception down to Pool attendant is very helpful and will always Endeavour to assist you the best they can without thinking of a tip to be received though we do not take away the fact that these people do work so hard to earn little so tips are very helpful indeed to enhance their earnings for their family.
The family room offered was cramped to say the least,with 1 sofa bed,a put up bed and the 2 single beds had obviously seen far better days(inclusive of the linen).after reluctantly agreeing to pay for an upgrade we were given a 2 bedroom suite which was new in every way(hmmm).after 2 days a foul smell began to come through the air conditioning,and after numerous attempts to fix this and much upset to my family inclusive of the intervention of the medhotels rep(who it must be said was powerless to help) i decided to leave the hotel.the front desk manager was of course reluctant to do this and after much deliberation with staff and her general manager concluded the situation by offering us the presidential suite.this suite as you can imagine was amazingly spacious and and furnished to the highest standard.There were 4 huge living rooms and studys as well as a bath in the master bedroom complete with seats for up to 4 people.from this point on the staff it appeared had been instructed to be especially tentative toward us and we were afforded every courtesy available.perhaps we in the west are all too quick to jump up and down if problems are not resolved within 5 minutes.It was also unfortunate that the tennis court was flooded due to the usual summer flooding of the nile.In retrospect i believe from how the hotel was sold to me by the travel agent that medhotels are in fact over-selling the pyramisa as a 5 star hotel..a true rating would be 3.5 stars.we of course were noyt the only people to have had grievences and could often see the medhotels rep trying to placate disgruntled guests.on 2 occaisions there were groups of 200(a black american group tracing their roots through africa)and were only satying 1 nite yet despite this the rest of the hotels guests were almost waved aside to afford these groups every courtesy and more.in fact on 1 occaision the pool staff tried to close the larger pool to other hotel guests saying it was a group pool on this occaision.this has been a very honest and frank review and i hope it is of help to all considering using it.p.s the hoel is advertised as having had a complete refurb in 2004,lets just say this is a grave mistake and upon inspection you will see it was last decorated when built.
Really disappointed with this hotel. Rooms were shabby, old looking. Furniture looked dirty, but was actually just old and worn.
Stayed at the Isis Hotel for two days at the end of March 2005.
stayed at this hotel based on the description given on lastminute.com as & i quote 'unadulterated luxury' ! Do not be fooled! it was far from this!
Before I arrived at this hotel I'd seen pictures of it and decided I wasn't going to like it but the holiday was a present so I wasn't going to miss out!!! On arrival I started to change my mind. The lobby is quite welcoming and the staff were superbly friendly and efficient.
