Alena Couples - 23/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We liked the ambience of the hotel and it’s historical vibes. It is very beautiful inside. We had a perfect room with a Nile view. The location is very good and convenient. The variety on breakfast was good however, some products were not very fresh. I had difficulties to connect to the internet. However these two issues are very small and not important for me. Overall experience was wonderful and I’d like to return.

My best hotel experience

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Abir Solo - 24/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Winter Palace has its own magic, the palace has soul to it, the palace rooms are amazing, the staff is very chic and. have amazing hospitality, very well mannered, have great experience with clients and friendly, the garden is one of the most beautiful garden, i liked the food very much too, it would be nice to include more dairy free options, one of my favorite things was the hour they got a flute musician wearing classic galabeya to play before sunset. The one single draw back was the wifi, the signal was strong, but the speed was very low and it was hard for me to get work done as i wanted to. But really overall, I would easily say it is my favorite hotel in all of egypt, even nicer than other Accor hotels

As usual the staff at the Winter Palace ensured that my stay was just as good (if not better) than staying at home. They are always very professional, polite and courteous. Sadly the WiFi is not always upto standard. In addtion it worries me in this time of the Pandemic that very few of your Guests are wearing face masks - but I am not sure what you can do about this?

Relaxing stay at Luxor legend hotel built in the 18 th Century

abouraya320 22/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

Very good location on the River Nile. Built 1882. Efficient check in. Spacious rooms. Amazing historical furniture, paintings and carpets from the old days. Huge lounge with historical chandeliers, piano, sofas, tables in every corner. Wide range of Resturant’s, some with formal dress. Amazing gardens and wide balconies overlooking the gardens and a heated swimming pool. Delicious first class food. Well served by professional staff. Unfortunately the billing system is complicated, you need to check your invoices carefully at checkout. Usually some duplicates are there.

Hotel is crumbling , and is very tired, not being kept up unfortunately, living on its past, but the service is great, the staff very courteous, as is the garden. Good location but Nile view rooms noisy due to traffic and maybe weak windows.

Hatem Z. Business - 15/03/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It’s been few years since my last visit to the Winter Palace, and I found it wonderful as ever. I have visited Luxor for work or leisure more than 30 times. I have stayed at some other hotels, but nothing is compared to the Winter Palace! It has the best location ( right next to the Luxor Temple at the heart of the city and overlooking the Nile) , the views are just wonderful ( either the Nile view rooms or the lavish Garden view). The swimming pools; the excellent service; and of course the History and the experience of lining in a real Palace! The food is great and the restaurants are elegant. But above all the staff are just outstanding!!! This hotel offers a great value for money. I will always come back again. Dr. Hatem Zaki

It was a wonderful experience. We spent 3 night there. At the arrival we got an upgrade of the room. The one we were given had an amazing view facing the garden. The room was comfortable, had everything we needed. We also liked breakfast. We used the swimming pool every day. We enjoyed our time there. The Ford in restaurants was delicious, service was excellent. Thank you for being our home during these 3 days.
