A unique hotel and a true palace in the center of ancient Luxor

May 31st, 2020

The hotel has a long history whereby the discovery of the Tomb of Tut Ankh Amun was announced by Howard Carter from the balcony of Winter Palace. Since then, several royal family members have enjoyed their stay in the hotel. It has also served as a setting for the famous Hercules Poirot film. You can learn more about the fantastic history of the hotel during your stay as the staff knows and tells it perfectly while gently preserving the historical interiors of the rooms, halls, and restaurants with antique furniture, Chinese vases, silk carpets, and reminders of ancient Egyptian artifacts. The hotel also has a wonderful garden, which serves as a retreat from the noise and dust of the city. Walking there, you can even see the birds that are known in Egypt since pharaonic times!

Beautiful Hotel

Mar 19th, 2020

I was so amazed with this hotel. It definitely is a 5 star. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and I have absolutely nothing but good things to say. I was a bit wary in the beginning because I’m not a fan of older hotels... quite frankly, it freaks me out. But once you enter the room and see their facilities, you will know that this establishment has a lot of history and might I add, it’s very luxurious. Everything is well maintained and the rooms are up to date. We got the luxury room with the balcony. The view of the Nile from our balcony is absolutely breathtaking. We love the personal touches, for instance a hand written card was left in our coffee table welcoming us. The complimentary breakfast is a sight to see. Everything is laid out so beautifully and it totally reminded of our time in France. I noticed most of their guest are French, so their breakfast consist of croissants and wonderful French pastries. The service is wonderful from start to finish. It is actually really close to everything, but I don’t recommend walking because the vendors will hassle you. They are far more aggressive than the vendors in Cairo (totally my opinion). Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t feel unsafe. I’m just the type of person that loves to enjoy my time in peace and Luxor just didn’t do that for me. Other than that, this hotel is absolutely the best in Luxor. The temples are beautiful and an absolute must see. If you ever come to Luxor, don’t stay anywhere else. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Gorgeous hotel

Mar 14th, 2020

Staff top notch! The palace and decor is impressive. Beautiful view of The Nile. Good location, walking distance to Luxor Temple, 15 min drive to train station a little longer to airport. Again the staff is amazing! The grounds are gorgeous. Spacious rooms. Could use minor fix ups but TV is modern and WiFi available. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Amazing/luxurious/antique 5 star!

Mar 11th, 2020

The sofitel Winter Palace Luxor is an extraordinary antique 5 star hotel. You get all the luxury of a 5 star in an atmosphere that preserves history. It's like a little museum when walking around the isles, also inside the Victorian Lounge. The room was amazing, ours was facing the amazing garden they have, very well taken care of, with trees and flowers and a really good swimming pool. The breakfast is a buffet, delicious. The location is also great, close to Luxor temple and the ferry to the West Bank. Also close to Safra restaurant if you don't want to eat in the hotel. Would highly recommend the experience, even if you go just for one night (as we did). We booked it last minute online and the price was great in relation to the quality you get!

Outstanding place to stay while visiting Luxor

Mar 8th, 2020

The rooms in the new building are WONDERFUL. Each has a view of the Nile. We stayed in a suite that went on and on. The terrace from our room had a view looking down the Nile River. The amenities were nice and the staff very helpful. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
