We liked the ambience and overall service. You can feel like prince charming. Breakfasts were delicious. Room was spacious and the garden cool like oasis. We liked the food. Only birds had not too many space in the cages. Please give them more space. 🙏

Everything was very Well 10 out of 10 . I like the top floor old Was thé old atmosphère, this is why I chose to stay here because of the history and Agatha Christy, and it is safe in this time here and quiet, peole are so friendly, I asked Esraa Ali to see a Nile view balcony and she showed me the Royal suite where the most famous characters stayed here.

The Winter Palace is an exceptionally beautiful building, largely untouched and unchanged only adding to its charm, in an ideal location opposite the Nile and within walking distance to Luxor Temple and the city centre. The scale is immense, with a jaw dropping grand stair case cascading from the lobby to the top floor; the hallways the widest I’ve ever seen, the ceilings some of the highest. Our room had its original parquet flooring and though its decor is more simple and modest than its iconic sister hotel in Aswan, the sense of time standing still, and of grandeur past, was something that largely appealed. The balcony overlooked the gardens which are luscious and expansive, with flamingos roaming daily. At the far end of the garden sits a gorgeous pool which is incredibly well tended to by the pool staff. The bar is particularly gorgeous at this hotel with dark lighting, jazz music and a real sense of ambience — excellent drinks lists and great service from the barman who brought out canapés with each drink. The only negative to report of our stay here, and it is a real shame to do so, was our dinner at the 1886 restaurant. Marketed as French fine dining with a strictly enforced dress code, the food fell short of the mark and did not reflect its price tag nor what it promised. Still, I would wholeheartedly return to this beautiful, palatial hotel — please don’t change a thing apart from improving the food!

Spacious room. Breakfast has a lot of choices, the garden is so lovely and the Sofitel hotels are amazing and Sofitel winter palace Luxor is one of the best. We have been only one night but we could stay more longer, next time, great staff and amazing atmosphere
