One of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at, and I travel a lot!

Customer review rating 4.8/5

Thais Couples - 21/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Winter Palace is just a lovely oasis of calm, history and beauty. The service is impeccable, we arrived really early and were able to check in pretty much straight after, being welcomed by a lovely tea and a room upgrade. The staff goes above and beyond and the grounds are just a dream. We had a lovely Egyptian buffet lunch in the gardens when we arrived with live music while we watched the birds around us. It felt like a dream a century back! Heavenly! The pool is heated which was perfect for the chilly January weather. We also got massages when we arrived and they were so good and well priced too! The Royal Bar was lovely to have a drink at. The breakfast buffet deserves special mention too, it was so good! Our only regret is that we only had 1 night there, we wished we could have stayed longer!

Highly satisfied with room and accommodations. Service was also excellent, as were the restaurants in the hotel. There were minor issues with the wifi, but it did not detract from the experience significantly. Some of the furniture/door frame were showing their age.

pinpinpin0 Family - 16/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

Beautiful historic property on the Nile. Great property but due for some much needed upgrading. Mostafa, the FO manager was excellent! He took great interests in ensuring the needs of guests are well taken care of. Was extremely hospitable and made himself available at all time to assist. Made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. A true asset befitting such a beautiful hotel.

Please see my post in TripAdvisor and Google for more information. We definitely had a great experience at the Sofitel Luxor Winter Palace. We would like to recognize Mr. Mohamed Moustafa, the front desk ,and Mr. Ahmed Khalifa, head butler. Mr. Moustafa's demeanor, professionalism, and customer services were outstanding. Mr. Khalifa's customer service, professionalism, and attention to details were impeccable. Both Mr. Moustafa and Khalifa made sure we felt at home.

My experience at the Winter Palace was a really memorable one, from start to finish. Every minor detail was so well looked after and always with a smile. The happy and obliging staff I am certain eminate from an efficient and professional management team. Mr Abdulraheem’s attention to detail at the New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner was second to none!!! It was spectacular!! I cannot recommend The Winter Palace enough to anyone who wants to mix business with pleasure, contentment and relaxation, excellent cuisine and luxury amongst the most beautiful gardens. Congratulations to all at the Hotel for providing such an excellent service.

I was dissappointed in the condition of the property. The service was provided, but not with kindness or courtesy. All of the people in our small group had digestive upsets after eating. The restaurant I wanted to eat in was 100 percent booked.

SJD102014 Couples - 09/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Looking across the Nile to the Valley of the Kings and watching the sun set, will stay with me forever. The hotel is a little dated and needs redecorating outside but our room was big and comfortable. The service was excellent in every department, check in, housekeeping, restaurants and pool. The pool and gardens are immaculate. It's just a short walk to the Luxor Temple and the local ferry to cross the Nile.

This is an incredible historic hotel. You feel as though you are stepping back in time from start to finish. The staff is fantastic. We LOVED the view of the Nile from our room … we were upgraded to the Opera Suite … WOW … what a room!!! We had an amazing anniversary meal in the Garden Restaurant and the breakfast can't be beat.
