The Winter Palace provides a quiet oasis after a busy day of touring or to get away from a busy city such as Cairo. The check-in service is great. The lush colorful gardens are well maintained and very calming. The pool is beautiful and warm. We stayed in a Pavillion room. It was spacious and clean. The breakfast food was... More

After a gap of a year, I returned to my 'second home' of Luxor and the Old Winter Palace hotel. As always, I am warmly welcomed (well, I have been coming to the Pavillon since 2000!) and made to feel special right from the start. As I have some mobility issues now, I decided to place myself more centrally and... More

Although we have not stayed here we do visit every time we go to Luxor which has been just about every year for many many years. We love the library for a cocktail before eating in the 1886 where good food, and ssrvice combine to make a very enjoyable experience. For us the highlight is listening to Radwan play live,... More

We stayed at the Winter palace in Luxor in March and enjoyed it immensely. It had all the old world charm and modern conveniences. We had a room which over looked the garden and he spectacular pool. If in Luxor, it is the place to stay.

Step back into time and history and enjoy some luxury. This is an amazing piece of paradise in bustling Luxor. The gardens and pool area are a proverbial oasis in the desert. Food at the pool bar was amazingly good.

It is some years since we last visited this old hotel, so it could have changed dramatically since then, but when we visited it retained its old world charm and was very beautiful.
