Historical and Elegant
The Winter Palace is a historical hotel with many beautiful features. It could use some fresh paint but I wouldn’t want to take away from the character of this 1886 palace. We stayed four nights with a Nile view in the original hotel. We had a wonderful breakfast every morning before starting our tours. Service was great in all restaurants and room service. We enjoyed the large pool and the amazing gardens!!
Old World Hotel
My wife and I finished our 8 day Nile Cruise with a night in the Winter Palace. Built by the former kings of Egypt, it had all of the grandeur of a palace. Our room was huge and the halls were wide enough to be styled a boulevard. Service was excellent and our room was available as soon as we arrived in the morning. Our Egyptology guide was from Luxor and he recommended a restaurant which we had lunch in. That evening we dined at the 1886 Restaurant which is coat & tie for men and dresses for the ladies. The ambience of the restaurant was great as was the food, but the service was not that good. Likewise you are near the Luxor Temple which is great to visit. The gardens in the back of the property are tremendous! Well worth staying there!
This was the most perfect way to end my 12 day tour of Egypt. Everything was gorgeous, the room, the pool, the food. Only complaint would be the slight inefficient service at breakfast when it came to getting coffee or tea at our table. And clearing away of used crockery and cutlery. This place is worth staying at, I suggest you google the history. We had two nights here, our days were filled with visiting tourist sights so not much time was spent actually in the Palace, I wish we had had at least 1 more night.
Nice hotel with character
I liked this hotel, character, aged, good staff, nice room. Proper service as required. Very nice pool, also nice garden. Do not miss the lounge. I think the best hotel in Luxor, also, location very good. Breakfast was good as well. If I have to find bad points I would say does not have the latest bits in the i.e. USB charger.
Luxurious in Luxor
My wife and I have visited this hotel several times over the past few years and it never disappoints. From its old charm and character to the best breakfast on the planet where you will find everything and anything. We always have a Nile view so enjoy watching the balloons early morning from the west bank from our balcony. The hotel staff are all amazing, all so friendly and can't do enough for you.. This hotel isn't just a hotel it is an experience that you will never forget. Beautiful, charming and definitely the place to stay if your visiting Luxor.
