Susanna Hotel Review
The best value in Luxor, the Susanna is one of the city's newest stays, and it commands the only location in town that trumps the Nile-front properties. Susanna is just across the street from the Avenue of the Sphinxes, now under an excavation that will restore the ancient processional way between Luxor and Karnak temples. Susanna enjoys unobstructed views over Luxor Temple, a lazy five-minute saunter away. Susanna connects to the souk—one minute, tops—via a side street filled with local color. As a locally owned property, this hotel is furnished with the bedding preferred in many an Egyptian home: a platform bed supporting a firm cotton mattress. Linens are bright white; bathrooms are colorfully tiled. Rooms are small, some are almost cramped; so are the balconies. But no one comes to Luxor to hole up in the room, especially not when this hotel's two-level roof terrace beckons with a glass-walled restaurant, a swimming pool, and sunsets that give way to the nightly illumination of Luxor Temple.
