Philippe Hotel

Shar‘a Dr. Labib Habashi, Luxor, Luxor, Egypt

Leave the clamor of a shop-filled Downtown street and enter a cool, quiet retreat popular with budget tour groups. Given the negligible price difference between Standard and Superior rooms, Superior rooms are the better choice: larger, more modern, with balconies and a higher standard of furnishings and fittings. The Philippe's major asset, aside from value for money, is a swimming pool on the remarkably spacious sixth-floor roof. The basement restaurant, with its Tiffany-style glass panels, is a lovely bonus.

PROS

  • good location—just off the Corniche al-Nil near the El-Luxor Hotel, halfway between Luxor and Karnak temples—and price
  • superior rooms are good value

CONS

  • The whole hotel is a bit run down
  • rooms vary in size
  • cheaper standard rooms aren't as nice and may have windows that open onto a common shaft
