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!
