My wife and I have stayed at the Mercure Luxor a number of times now, our last visit being the 10th June 2009 for two weeks.
The position of this hotel is excellent, right on the Nile, if possible you should book a Nile view room.
Fantastic cool reception area, the reception staff are professional people who welcome everyone with a smile and cannot do enough for you.
Rooms are of a good size, being fully ensuite, air conditioned, radio, television with English speaking channels, balcony or terrace, bedding changed on a daily basis by very efficient room service.
Restaurent is excellent with plenty of variety and the staff in the restaurent are out of this world, they cannot do enough for you.
Swimming pool is probably the best in Luxor, large lagoon type, sensible depth with one end shallow for children or just lazing ...

Plenty of sun beds with mattresses and towels provided, plenty of shade, good service from the pool restaurant serving mainly snacks.
Lastly I must mention Aly Mohamend, guest relations, he is magic, any problems just see Aly and all will be sorted, a very nice guy.
Looking forward to our next visit in the near future.
