Nice location but wifi need serious fixing
Nice hotel..but does look let down and abandoned. Beautiful place with lots of potential. Located just across from where cruises depart from. Optimum location n facility but needs a good revamp.

10/10 Exceptional

The Aracan is really a gem in Luxor. Conveniently located next to the Luxor Temple and overlooking the Nile River, its location is great and room is quiet. My room was really spacious, clean and bright - just as I wanted. The check-in receptionist was nice also to upgrade my booking from normal room to a river view room which has a cute balcony. The hotel also was so generous to allow me to check out late and hang around in the lobby until my evening flight. Aracan really is 5 stars, and great great value for money for its price. Hotels staffs and crew were very professional, nice, curious and helpful. Super highly recommended! Suggestion : Request for Non smoking rooms are possible.

4/10 Fair

Nice and cosy warm at 49c+
It's a big hotel and not full and i get that it's post covid... BUT The air conditioning wasnt working the whole stay. Do you know how hot it gets facing west in an old room VERY! We actually couldn't sleep. Some staff were absolutely lovely and the location is great but quite an unpleasant stay for us.
