Property's Favourite Review
After more than a year of research reading reviews on various hotels in Luxor, I decided to book 4 days at Jewel of the Valley. I regret that I did not book a longer stay! This wonderful, quiet boutique hotel on the West Bank of the Nile was the perfect escape from the noise of the city. The owner, Mr. El Ammari, built this three story home with obvious care and attention to detail. Our room was was clean, as was the entire property. Pristine linens made of the famous Egyptian cotton were on the bed and in the bathroom. There was a small fridge, tv (which we never felt compelled to watch) and a night stand between the twin beds. The bathroom had a rain type shower head and there was plenty of hot water. We had a view of the Nile and the banana grove. We slept well since there was no city noise and the beds were comfortable. The chef was amazing! We were given choices, often asked what we would like for dinner and it was prepared fresh. One night we decided to try a Nile fish. It was so good we asked for a repeat performance on a subsequent night. Well, Ezz wasn't content with the same recipe. There were three variations on the theme! All of it delicious. In fact, every meal we had was exquisite. We dined al fresco watching the boats on the Nile just yards away. Hassan and Syeed provided quiet table service asking if we needed or wanted anything else. There was an abundance of food making it impossible to leave the table hungry. Traditional Egyptian fare was offered as well as more Western dishes. We were amazed at the quality of the cuisine, the plating and freshness of all the ingredients. Since we were arriving by train after dark, I had asked Mr. El Ammari if his driver could meet us at the station. Mohamed was there and spotted us immediately as we emerged from the train station. With a smile he guided us through the chaotic traffic to the spotless air-conditioned car. He talked with us, making us feel very welcome, as we made the drive from East Bank across the river to the hotel. We were amazed at his driving skills. He calmly navigated the constant game of chicken that people, cars and animals engage in throughout Egypt. Arriving at the hotel we were led through the gate onto the terrace where we enjoyed fresh juice. And I do mean fresh! They pick mangoes or lemons off the trees that surround hotel and VOILA! you have fresh juice in minutes. Hassan stayed on the premises at night and gates were locked to ensure our security. In fact, we felt so safe we didn't lock our room the entire time. Hassan was always smiling and greeted us each morning as we came downstairs. Our comfort seemed to be his mission which he more than completed daily. Mr. El Ammari would meet us on the terrace each morning with, "Beautiful Morning." In less than 24 hours we understood that was the appropriate salutation at the Jewel of Valley. It is, indeed, beautiful. Syeed offered to walk us down the path to the river, pointing out the vegetable garden, fruit trees, donkey and water buffalo. The banana grove was immense. He also welcomed us into his nearby home. We asked for, and received, permission to photograph artwork on the wall. One morning I noticed Mohamed sitting on the terrace reading his Qur'an. It was a large book; the front cover embellished with Islamic art. At my request he helped me recite a passage and explained what it meant. For me, it was an extraordinary moment of one human being sharing his spirituality with another. The Jewel of the Valley never felt like a hotel. It was more like staying in the home of an old friend. We may have checked in as guests, but we checked out as family. The 5 Star rating is not enough. It may be a budget hotel, but it's luxury in service. Do yourself a favor and stay at this peaceful home on the Nile. Should I be lucky enough to return to Egypt, Jewel of the Valley will be my only choice of accommodation.

This is by far the best hotel stay in luxor. Overlooking the nile and fresh fruits and vegetables. The services were exceptional. They made we arrived safely to the hotel and gave us room that were spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast and dinner was both delicious and satisfying. What we enjoyed most was the hospitality. The pool was fantastic. We will surely be staying at the jewel again. Thank you so much for making us free at home.

Staying here made our trip to Egypt as special as it could get, it’s a wonderful place on the quiet side of Luxor which me and my girlfriend absolutely loved. Once you’ve been staying in busy parts of Egypt, trust me, you start craving a place like this. The staff was very helpful, kind and made our stay even better than it already was. I got sick during our stay here and they cared for me like I was family. The rooms are spacious and comfy and in the area around the hotel there’s lots to explore! Would love to come back here again.
