  • Excellent glamorous stay!

    by boycolour on 2019-10-23 09:26 am

    Stayed 2 nights in this amazing hotel! The hotel looks absolutely gorgeous, old glamour style! We had a Nile view room and it was fantastic! The view is stunning especially during sunset! Staffs are very friendly and helpful! Pool is very big and well maintained, very helpful pool guys working there! I only wished they have a gym. It is about 10 minutes walk to Luxor Temple and a 10 minutes drive to Karnak Temple. Breakfast is also quite good!

  • Luxury and style

    The Luxor Winter Palace is a must stay if you can afford it. The beautiful hotel, grounds and public halls convey an air of a bygone era of luxury and style. Their most expensive dining room requires a jacket and tie for men, but the common dining room is just as nice. The breakfast is opulent and extensive. The gardens at the rear of the hotel deserve a tour and you can sit on a front terrace and watch the sunset over the Nile. The road in front is being repaired so be prepared for dust. Our rooms were small but luxurious. Walking distance to the souk which is more laid back than in Cairo. Very nice breakfast and courteous staff.

  • Best hotel in luxor

    Stayed at the winter palace many times. What can I say other than it's the best hotel in Luxor. Food is amazing and the rooms are very clean and of a very good size. The gardens are magnificent.

    The staff are very friendly and always there to help.

    Will be back soon

  • Happy with our decision to stay there!

    Decided to treat my travel companions and myself to a night in this hotel after not a lot of sleep on the night train from Cairo. It was the perfect oasis in our stay in Egypt - quiet, calm, spacious, cool. We swam in the pool in the evening, ordered room service and continued on our way the next day. Also, the breakfast was great! Would definitely stay again and recommend for a stay in Luxor.

  • Could be so much better

    I really struggled with this hotel. I love colonial buildings but this place is clearly past its prime and still trying to cater to an audience that doesn't exist in Luxor anymore.

    Positives:
    Staff very friendly and obliging
    Large room with comfortable bed
    Affordable at 80$/night inc breakfast

    Negatives
    - rooms really in need of refurbishment
    - shower pressure terrible and pokey bathroom
    - WiFi connectivity terrible
    - food quality average
    - room cleaning service didn't leave me any new water bottles
    - tried ordering a milkshake by the pool and it was unavailable even though they had ice cream on the menu

    There is a stuffy restaurant and a stuffy bar that require formal attire to enter. In the evenings outside of that there was one buffet style restaurant. The pool side restaurant closes at 5, the front terrace was empty of both customers and staff when I tried to have something there around 6. I would suggest hotel management really think about their current audience and whether they need to have two empty spaces in their hotel catering to people from the 50s who want to wear ties and jackets in 35 degree weather, instead of keeping the poolside restaurant open. I would have spent a lot more money on drinks and food if I could have relaxed in my shorts by the pool.

    If this hotel was over 100$ a night I wouldn't even give it 3 stars. All in all, stay here but outside of the room and breakfast there is nothing to spend your time or money on inside.
