Note: The following information is provided from our own visits & research, the hotel itself, and our clients' experience of using the hotel.
The Pyramisa Isis is a modern resort style hotel complex and is the largest hotel in Luxor. It is set in 28 acres of landscaped gardens directly on the banks of the River Nile with views of the Nile and the West Bank. The resort has two large outdoor pools and a wide range of facilities including sporting activities, a choice of bars and restaurants and a shopping arcade. While rated at 5-stars, we consider this hotel to be a slightly lower level, and suitable for use on our Egypt family tours, and also tours set at our standard comfort rating.
The hotel is located in the centre of Luxor on the east bank of the Nile and is only a few minutes walk from Luxor temple and the main shopping areas of Luxor. The Luxor Museum is only 200 metres away and all the major tourist sites are within easy reach.
