Steigenberger Nile Palace


This popular and welcoming hotel has brilliant views over the West Bank of the Nile.

Well situated for exploring Luxor’s history and culture, the Steigenberger is a comfortable hotel centred around an attractive courtyard. The view is one of the main attractions, with the main restaurant, bar and heated swimming pool overlooking the Nile. Pick a shaded sun lounger by the pool and watch the feluccas sail by, before heading to the bar to watch the sun set over the river.

The staff are friendly and attentive, and are the reason that many guests return here year after year. The hotel has a wide and varied choice of bars and restaurants. The Nubian is the main restaurant, with a colourful Egyptian interior, international buffets and live cooking stations, with seating indoors or outside on the terrace. The three à la carte restaurants are made up of Casa di Napoli serving Italian specialities; El Tarboush offering Lebanese dishes accompanied by live folk music; and the popular Bua Khao featuring Asian fusion cuisine.

Rooms are stylishly furnished in neutral tones and all have air-conditioning and a balcony. Choose between Standard Rooms with a view of the courtyard area or the more spacious Direct Nile View Rooms with views of Egypt's iconic river and the distant mountains.
