"Its the staff and sunset that make this hotel a little piece of heaven on earth"
Luxor, the heart, soul and monumental fabric of modern civilization is certainly a quieter place than it was when we first started visiting many years ago. What is untouched is the warmth of the people at this idyllic oasis on the banks of the Nile, the attentive service and the spectacular red sunsets over the Valley of the Kings. My wife and I enjoyed a week there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were touched by the care and attentiveness of our old friends at the resort like Zak. The buffet dinners are a far cry from the Sheraton days and we went opted for the menu from the Indian and Italian restaurants which are superb. The highlight was having a romantic candle lit dinner in the Hotel's souk in the garden beside the Nile, truly magical. The concierge arranged a driver and tour guide to take us across to the Carter House Museum and Valley as it was too hot for our usual bicycle ride around the West Bank. The driver and guide were first class and reasonably priced. Sad to see so few visitors at the historic sites though it does mean you have pretty much exclusive access to these iconic venues. Do visit and stay at this wonderful hotel, just be mindful the City and people are experiencing difficult times. They will do their best to make your stay magical, just ask.
"Excellent in every way!"
I was a little apprehensive that Achti Resort may not have been as good as Sheraton Resort which was its previous name before being taken over! I need not have worried! The building is still maintained to a very high level. This cannot be said of similar hotels in Luxor; due to a decline of visitors I can only assume that some staff have been laid off. There is, therefore, no one to keep the hotels clean. Even reception areas are left unswept and dusty. However, Achti Resort is not like this! I mentioned this to the most helpful young duty receptionist and she simply replied, "We care!" And they do; all the staff do! I have been using this same hotel for approximately 20 years and have always been very happy with my stay, be it a few days or a few weeks. Many of the staff have been there since I first visited and remember my previous visits and welcome me on my return. I always choose a Nile view room and I am sure there is not a better view of the River Nile from any other balcony in the whole of Luxor! The room has every amenity and is kept immaculately clean. The waiters go out of their way to provide superb service, albeit at Egyptian speed. I'm pleased to say that the hotel was a little busier than on my previous visit some 16 months earlier; Egypt needs tourists to return and they are well looked after at Achti Resort!
"Return visit after change from Sheraton"
Hotel was just as before even same staff, made. To feel very welcome, remembered by many staff. Receptionist very helpful, gave us the room we requested, very clean sheets changed daily. Beautiful view overlooking the Nile, free WI Fi...

"LUXURY AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE"
We Stayed here as a family and really enjoyed the resort. We stayed in the Jr suite which sits in the corner with wrap around deck/balconies overlooking the Nile and pools. The view was remarkable. You can walk down to the Nile and go for a boat ride in a felucca as well. There is a shopping area out front and the food was quite good.
"A resort not just an Hotel"
Very pleasantly surprised by Achti Resort. Welcoming staff and now like a lot of hotels, it has security screening of baggage on arrival. Reasonable size twin bedroom with balcony. The bathroom we had was a tad small and missing some toiletries and maybe a towel and I think some items tea bags /coffee sachets in the refreshment area. But that was addressed very quickly when reception contacted. A walk around the hotel revealed a very attractive pool area and garden overlooking the Nile and quite a number of guests enjoying the facility. We dined in the hotel and the buffet was very satisfactory, especially the desserts. We stayed here as part our visit to Karnak, the Valley of Kings and the Temple of Luxor, but could well contemplate a relaxing visit to Achti Resort just for itself. I would be remiss if I did not pay tribute to the helpfulness of the hotel staff, both generally and in the dining room. Will try to visit again.
