The hotel was amazing, the setting is beautiful by the Nile you can watch the Sunset over the Nile in the sunset bar and see the Nile from the pool. The food was reasonable good choice, can have A La Carte when they have more capacity, it was closed due to lack of tourism. Swimming pool is big and the... More

Having just returned to England after my twelfth stay at Karnak Resort I don't have much more to add - (please read my previous reviews of this wonderful hotel). As always I had a fantastic welcome from everyone. Even though, like all other hotels in Luxor, there are very few tourists I had the best of attention and nothing was... More

Our low room rates mandated up-charges on everything though. Still, in the end it is a great value by local comparison. The Hotel is situated on the East Bank of the Nile about 10 to 15-minutes by taxi from Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple and the Luxor Museum. West Bank is closer to Valley of the Kings and Queens but still... More

We wished we had stayed here longer than we did. It was so lovely Rooms had basic amenities ( blow dryer/coffee/tea) AC Right along the nile river Food was great (breakfast) still would recommend travelers to eat off the resort. Spread out your business.

Egypt is empty of tourists. Locals need your money so go, in safety and spend. There are no queues for any temples/attractions. Clear views of anything you want. If you were to go to Egypt for social reasons, however, a negative. Staying recently here, there were 10 guests. I imagine the hotel is built for 300+ guests so one does... More

I stayed with my cousin for 4 days at this beautiful Hotel in Luxor. It's amazing. Although the situation in Luxor is so bad and no tourists come, but the service and the whole hotel was managed as it is fully booked. The staff is very welcoming and kind. Room service and cleaning is super. Regarding the food, although it... More

Karnak resort is an oasis of relaxation and beauty! The 10 days spent here passed very quickly … Located on the banks of the old Nile, with a very inspired architecture, the hotel provide all that weary traveler could want ...

Not only is this a beautiful hotel set in the most gorgeous, tranquil gardens, right on the banks of the Nile, but it also has the most amazing staff. From Emer and Mhmoud who are both just so lovely, nothing is ever too much trouble, Mohamed the life guard, Mastafa on reception, Ali, one of the many lovely housekeeping staff... More

Beautiful setting on the banks of the Nile. Quiet but has two pools for the kids and one for adults. The food is good, the prices reasonable as I have said in previous reviews on this place. There is no trouble in Luxor, Aswan or Sharm so where are all the scaredy cat tourists...Oh i know...they must be glued to... More
