We really liked this hotel, you get the surroundings, facilities and service of the posh bit for a fraction of the price. I really can't see why you would bother to pay the extra to stay in the old part. Our room was very nice, clean, modern and comfortable. There were nice views from the balcony over the gardens and to the town beyond. The staff were excellent and the breakfast was very good. We walked everywhere and nothing was too far (although we like walking!).

Do not mistake this for the old winter palace,no where to sit in the hotel only your room, this place used to use the facilities of the new winter palace hotel,but this block has now been demolished,along with the lounge bar, cafe, restaurant.
They have not replaced any of these facilities in the pavilion very very poor

This was our 6th trip for new year and found the usual high standard of staff, grounds and service. The grounds are a haven from the hustle and bustle of Luxor, an oasis of calm, a fabulous place to relax from the slog of all those tombs and temples.
The new year's eve meal was made by the enthusiasm of the staff and the whole ste up was beautiful.
We want to give special thanks to Mr Obady on reception, and the waiting team headed up by Said and special thanks to Rashidi and Mohammed Ramadan.
Good tips are if you can't stand the hassle out the front though a resolute no and walking with purpose works in minutes, go our the back where the staff go in and out. Yes there are mossies but buy some spray in one of the local shops and spray room before you go out for the evening - works a treat. If you don't wish to be woken by the call to pray at 5 in morning don't go to muslim country!
It sad at the moment because people think there are the same problems here as in Cario - there are not, don't be frightened, come here when all is quiet from the normal large crowds.
Oh and great location 2 mins from Luxor Temple and 10 mins from a great range of restaurants

I booked a room at the Winter Pavilion and it was by far the worst hotel I stayed at in Egypt. Being a Platinum Le Club member I didn’t get any of the platinum benefits. The hotel room was very hot when I came in, I turned on the air conditioning and it didn’t get any colder, when I notified the front desk and they said it’s normal?!? And I should open the balcony door, I told them there were a lot of mosquitos out there with some in the room itself! The hallway outside the room was a lot cooler! Another room was not being offered.
On top of that this is the only hotel that didn’t provide drinking water, not even in the minibar and I wasn’t very keen to drink tap water in Egypt.
I also found hair in the bath tub, no slippers, no pen, there was no turn down service, breakfast was not more than average and food in the restaurant La Corniche was overpriced for the quality given. I stayed there for one sleepless night, I would’ve gone somewhere else if the room wasn’t prepaid.
