Many other reviews have expressed the same sentient, which is that this charming hotel is like stepping back in time. Those reviews are all correct. The grandeur may be somewhat faded, but it is grandeur nonetheless. The cavernous old building is filled with shadows and mystery. The rooms are lovely and interestingly furnished, but come with suitable air con. They're not particularly luxurious, but comfortable. The hotel bar is otherworldly. Easily one of the greatest drinking establishments in existence, it's like a time capsule of the 1920s. The atmosphere is almst overpowering. The staff were unfailingly lovely and helpful. We met the owner who always said hello when we passed and this was indicative of the friendly atmosphere of the whole place. Be warned, it is a old building which has seen better days. There can be a slightly chaotic air occasionally. This is not a Hilton or any other American chain. It is a rustic, authentic glorious, creaky, masterpiece.…
The telephone switch board, the elevator, the furniture and even the venerable attendant on our the hotel floor, they all breathed the untarnished air of a long past era. You will not find 21st century european standard, rather you have a bath room, which might be contemporary scene to an Agatha Christie novel You sip your beer in a bar, where you expect some colonial officers to enter at any moment. In short, is it a place to indulge in memories and imaginations. But this is what I consider the real luxury.
So this old pile is the place, I am sure, described by Roald Dahl in 'Madame Rosette' a lightly raunchy tale about young men in WWII. Or it its the setting for one of the encounters in Durrell's Balthazar, or both. I first came here forty years ago and it really hasn't changed at all. As we head toward 2020 yes, it looks backwards with fondness and poignance. There is a certain dark comedy about the cranky lift and the bakelite telephone exchange. But . . . the staff have this outrageous languid 'seen it all' confidence. Nobody is bothered. So yes, it is a wreck, but you have to love it to bits because its your grandmother's house. The doors and walls have seen stuff, heard stuff... Do expect: things to go slowly, a limited range of things for breakfast, creaky floorboards, noisy streets outside, cranky plumbing. Do expect: a slightly odd taste in decor that blends Swiss chalet with British country pub, all laid on encaustic tiles to die for. Dark hallways. Ghosts. Nice ones. Don't expect: slick computers, slick people, the generic blandness of any chain hotel. Do expect: the sweetest kindest funniest staff. All of them. Thank you.…
A piece of history, unchanged in decades, but lovingly preserved. In no way is it modern, and it is extremely unusual, but it is a taste of a grand past that you can sample now. Beautiful old woodwork wainscoating and armoire. Samir and Erian on front desk very helpful and TRUSTWORTHY for such as train tickets, tour arrangements, taxi to/from hotel. Eman gracious breakfast server, Wael a very helpful waiter at dinner. Your courtesy and modest tips will be generously repaid in service. It is not the Hilton but it is one of the most unique experiences you will find.
Entering the Windsor Hotel is like stepping back in time. From the manual switchboard in reception to the brass handle on the lift-control that takes you to your spacious rooms, there are hundreds of charming details.
