This was the best property I stayed in during my vacation in Egypt. The hotel was clean, the atmosphere was relaxing, and all of the staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming and they treated all the visitors as if they were Family. Also the food was amazing the evening meals tasted great. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying at Luxor. Thanks. David

Best hotel you will ever stay at!
This hotel was truly a wonderful experience. Howard Carter Hotel and Guest house was located a little far from main town Luxor, which we were originally a little sad about, however, after two minutes of arriving we realized this was best. It is so quite around the hotel, and the staff members make it so easy for you to get around that you really don't feel as if you are missing anything! The tours they set up for us were incredible, Mohammad was funny and courteous, and the guide they hired the second day was very intelligent and interesting. We were so sad to only have book one night at the hotel once we realized how wonderful it was.Also, while they don't have a restaurant, if you order dinner or breakfast (you have to do this in advanced) you will not regret it. The chef cooked up the most amazing and delicious meal that we got to eat in the privacy of the dining room (dinner) and out on the terrace overlooking the pool and the Nile (breakfast). Everything in the hotel was spotless and up-to-date. This was truly a five star experience. Thank you for everything!

A Jewel on the West Bank of the Nile
Management and staff went out of their way to provide a wonderful experience at the “Jewel of the Valley”. Fresh lemon and mint from the garden on arrival; exceptional quality and care from the dining room. Meals overlooking the Nile River. The property was very well maintained and the staff made us feel welcome. I will recommend the Jewel of the Valley to all my family and friends!!!

Treated like Royalty
On a whim, we decided to fly from Cairo to Luxor in January 2019. I found the Jewel on and booked two rooms. We sent a message to the hotel asking if they could pick us up at the Luxor airport and also find us an English-speaking guide. Not only did they pick us up promptly and transport us to the hotel but once we arrived , they welcomed us with open arms and treated us like royalty--- preparing a breakfast on the balcony. I'll admit that I was a little concerned on the road to the hotel. At one point I'm not sure the road was even paved. But once we arrived, I realized what a hidden jewel this place is. There are only about 7 or 8 rooms each with an Egyptian name ,not a number. Each is unique The place was exceptionally clean and the rooms had very modern bathrooms, complete with 6ft long bath towels, blow dryers, and wonderful showers. This is a QUIET setting with pastoral views and the Nile stretching out behind the green fields. Very relaxing and very accommodating staff--chef prepared lovely meals served out on the veranda and the manager was very attentive, The chauffer also helped at the hotel and after our meal, prepared a campfire and brewed Egyptian tea for us in the flames and we sat around the fire outside talking and listening to music. They drove us around everywhere the next day and we had a great guide too. (Be sure to see Karnak Temple!) The pool looked pristine but weather was too cool when we visited. Very reasonable prices too!

是在尼羅河的另外一邊, 如果要到路克索的神廟,必須要搭乘小渡輪, 要跟當地的人去講價錢,大概是5元美金左右,飯店一切都很好,出入很不方便,距離旅館500公尺左右有一家餐廳,餐廳的下面就有一個渡輪的出入口,可以跟餐廳的人談渡輪的價錢
