Mehreen M. Friends - 01/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I loved my stay at the Winter palace for many reasons. Firstly the location and the history of the property. The old world charm, which can be felt is pleasing in this gast paced world. The gardens are beautiful and tranquil. They welcome you after a long day of visiting the temples. Secondly and most importantly, the staff at Winter Palace is superb. I've not seen this level of attention in other 5 star hotels. Mohammed on front desk gave us an extremely early check in and just won our hearts. Our room was upgraded during the stay and every effort was made to ensure a pleasant and comfortable stay. The house keeping staff was vigilant and very attentive and would ask if we would need anything extra twice a day. I'm definitely coming back here soon. Mehreen M.

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Geoffrey Friends - 19/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The attention from every member of staff and the head butler Ahmed in particular was world class. The building is a beautiful palace dating from 19th century. My only suggestion would be that a little bit of renovation and modernisation of bath and electric fixtures, as well as a fresh coat of paint in some spots, would keep the aesthetic and comfort world class as it deserves to be.

Khaled E. Families - 03/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful location. Hotel takes you back to a lost era. The service is incredible. Two main issues. The restaurant food quality is not 5 star hotel. Compare it to the Ritz or JW Marriott in Cairo for example of any of the gulf country 5 star hotels. So that needs improving. The rooms are old which is fine as the building is old and that's it's charm. But the hotel needs renovating. The exterior is falling apart and the room interior are all showing signs of wear and tear.
