…”of course Sir, this is your second home” was the waiters answer to my question wether I may take away a Croissant onto my sightseeing trip that morning. I already feel the wanderlust when I think back to my fabulous stay at this Grand Hotel. Highs: - Yes, the Hotel is a bit outdated but hey: nowhere in the world...

Loved this hotel. Stayed in the new garden wing and the room was luxurious. The gardens are out of this world with a wonderful pool. The old building is shabby chic and just oozes history. Breakfast in the garden wing is outstanding as is the service from the two head waiters. Wifi was fast and free. The hotel has an...

Slow or not functioning Wifi. Too many personnel don't understand English, even if they try to be very (too) friendly. Often stupid lack of respect, employment obviously based on nepotism, not on capacities. Lacking decent 5* service, f.e. no umbrellas available. Prices far too expensive compared with other local 5* hotels. Of course a wonderful "Grand Hotel" compared to the...

Hotel Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor is one of the best hotels I have visited in my life. The location is great and very unique, with enchanting view of the Nile, this hotel bring history in your hands. I invite everyone to visit and I'm sure they will be very happy.

I have been visitng the Winter Palace for the past fifty years. While one can be somewhat nostalgic for its former days as a member of the Egyptian Hotels Company chain, one can also appreciate the improvements made to it as a member of the Sofitel chain. Many of its loyal guests return yearly for its famous New Years Eve...

I cannot speak highly enough of our stay at the Winter Palace! We were there for five nights over Christmas for our honeymoon, and from the minute we arrived, we were treated like absolute royalty by the wonderful staff. The hotel itself is just stunning - with so much character and charm I would choose a stay at the Winter...

I booked an initial two nights at this beautiful hotel, and ended up staying a third. I just couldn't bear to leave the luxe comfort and wonderful service behind. This lovely hotel and friendly staff made my time in Luxor so special.

I spent about 5 days at this beautiful hotel for a conference (and moved to the Pavilion when my family joined me) and the whole experience was just wonderful. The location across the road from the Nile was memorable, the room was comfortable, the garden and pool area were spacious and incredibly well-kept and the breakfasts were just fantastic. The...

My family and l visit this charming hotel regularly. This is one of our most enjoyable stays. The rooms were comfortable. The Nile as well as the garden views were impeccable. The staff spared no effort to make us comfortable. The breakfast team service was excellent.

I had heard wonderful things about this hotel but was a little disappointed in the end. For the same price I expect I could have gotten much better value elsewhere. The garden is gorgeous (albeit pretty colonial) and the staff were nice enough. However, the rooms were tiny, the shower head kept falling off the wall, the elevators were of...
