The welcome back to the Hotel by Mostafa at the Front Desk ensured that I was most welcome and that the staff of the Hotel would ensure that the stay would be excellent and indeed it was. From the staff welcome, concierge, pool, housekeeping, restuarant, bar and room service I could not have asked for a better service. The Hotel, is by far the best in Luxor and certyainly worth 5*

Excellent. Only problem was the girl at the front reception desk. She charged 4700.00 USA plus on my credit card instead of using Egyptian pounds. It took a few days to get corrected. The butler was outstanding. He noted the error immediately and brought it to my attention. I have referred the hotel to my friends. Excellent service

JamesNine 13/11/2020 TripAdvisor review

What a great relaxing stay at the Winter Palace Hotel last week. A really warm welcome from Mostafa, Front Desk, when I arrived and then the rest of the staff at the Hotel ensured that my stay was relaxing and memorable. The Hotel is providing a a meticulus service to ensure that all neceassry precaustions are taken against the spread of Covid 19. Excellent service at the Poolside and in the 1886 Restaurant. Dinner and Brakfast (in the room) could not have been better.

A MUST stay place in Luxor

Customer review rating 4.8/5

B. Families - 12/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were a bit confused in the beginning to pick our hotel in Luxor, as the review on the internet is not quite reliable. We finally called Sofitel Winter Palace and it turned out to be a great one, especially if you like culture and history. We loved the marriage between french & orient in this hotel and the garden is a gem! The main building is more historical and the second one is more modern. ALL staffs are very helpful, efficient, polite & do the "xtra mile" for each guest. Fish Safaga from room service is super yummy, oriental breakfast is delicious and the pancake is actually french crêpe. We are french and thumb up! It's not only authentic but delicious. Nashaat was picked by the hotel to do our guiding in Luxor, he's an egyptologist! Everything from this place is hand picked! Our stay in Luxor couldn't be better. Thank you so much!

Elizabeth Families - 12/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our stay at Winter Palace was unparalleled - perfect from beginning to end. The hotel itself is lovely and well-maintained. Rooms are spacious with high ceilings and balconies. From the balcony you can enjoy a lovely view of the Nile, and further away, the Valley of the Kings. The hotel's location is excellent - just a short walk to Luxor Temple, and the shops in town. We even walked to Karnak Temple from the hotel! The grounds are calming and peaceful - like a beautiful garden. The pool is perfectly situated. We enjoyed a satisfying breakfast each morning - rolls, fruits, cheeses, meats, and an egg cooked to order. Service at breakfast is outstanding. Also, the room service menu has a large variety of items - and is quite delicious as well. Overall, we are so happy that we chose the Winter Palace, and that is thanks in particular to Mustafa (front desk overnight) and Ayed (room service).

Rand C. Solo - 22/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have been staying at the Winter Palace Hotel regularly since 1966. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Luxor. Some of the guest rooms are a bit faded and there is not an abundance of closet or drawer space, which can be a challenge if your are staying for two months. But the location, the magnificent gardens, and --most of all -- the superb service bring me back each year for an extended stay.

Dear valued Guest, Thank you for your interest and loyalty to Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor and we are delighted hosting you with us. We are indeed very pleased on the way you describe your experience at the Hotel and such commendable remarks makes us extremely proud of the kind of service we cater to our discerning Guests.

Danny H. Couples - 18/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Winter Palace Hotel Luxor is definitely a Palace fit for a king. Our room was overlooking the Nile, spotlessly clean and tidy. All the staff from the management down could not do enough to make our stay a very special one. The cleanliness and attention to detail in the rooms was definitely a five star experience. The house keeping team were exceptional, not just in their ability to clean and tidy the rooms to such a high standard 10/10......but also in their friendly and professional manner. This is definitely the best hotel in Egypt that we have stayed in... And we have stayed in many. Congratulations and thank you to the management and all staff for making our stay such a special one, and particularly to the house keeping for being so attentive to our needs and making sure the rooms were spotlessly clean. Many thanks and see you all soon. Danny and Katrina
