For all the solo ladies...”

The hotel is located within walking distance to both the train station and Luxor Temple. I arrived early in the morning from Cairo and they stored my bags for me until check-in so I could look around town. Beware the aggressive taxi/carriage drivers on the street in front on the hotel- ignore them or pretend to be on the phone and you will eventually be left alone. They will try to massively over-charge you. There is also an exit through the rear garden of the hotel that is much quieter. As for the hotel itself, check-in was smooth and the staff were very polite. My room was comfortable and had a lovely terrace overlooking the garden. Nile view rooms also look across the road which is substantially less private, since all the touts would be able to see you on your balcony (ymmv- but I definitely did not want that). When there was an issue with my tub, I was offered an adjacent (larger) room and staff immediately moved my belongings for me. It was a bit of an inconvenience but they handled it well and I wasn't too upset. Housekeeping is attentive and will make sure that your room is looked after and that you have enough water. The decor is lovely and remains in an antique style. Yes, this does mean that some things are old- but I think that is a goodly portion of choosing the hotel in the first place. The

This hotel was a sanctuary from the craziness of Luxor. Lovey hotel with excellent service across the board. Luxor pro tip: arrange a meet and greet driver to meet you upon arrival. This will help avoid the army of annoying touts. Ignore touts completely, especially in Luxor.

Wonderful Gardens For relaxing ”

We only stayed two nights - should have had another to make use of the gardens and breakfast more! So my advice is don't rush Luxor's sights - split it up to make use of the hotel facilities. Although the hotel and rooms are looking a bit worn, the ambience is incredible - especially in the bar in the evening! The restaurant menu was a little limited, but the staff are excellent and always wanting to please.

We stayed at this hotel during dec 2021 for 3 nights. The heater was not working from day one and they could not fix it. They offered us a small mobile heater which barely helped. The hotel needed some attention with the doors, AC and shower head. yes, it is an old hotel, but they need to spend some money to upgrade it. Breakfast buffet was excellent, very friendly staff.

The Sofitel in Aswan is a better hotel in every regard! Rooms are nice here but service and restaurant/ bars are not designed for tourists. Long pants mandatory at bar and we bought a single shot of average quality Vodka that would cost $12 in the US, it cost $62.50 at Sofitel, slightly less than our room rate. Ridiculous

No air-conditioning, unacceptable”

We went early Feb which they term as “winter” but inner temperatures are as high as 30 degrees and room is very stuffy. Can’t open windows because there are mosquitoes. Air conditioning was switched to cool but there’s no cool air, and staff actually said the central setting is on heater mode and no air conditioning available. This is ridiculous for a 5 star property under Sofitel with the amount we paid. Barely slept that night with mosquitoes bites. Design of the hotel is very vintage and colonial style, and appreciated the good breakfast service. However would not recommend.

Luxor's lovliest luxury hotel in prime location ”

High ceilings, gorgeous views, palacial design, fantastic pool, excellent food! And the LOCATION cannot be beat, within 5 minutes walk of the amazing Luxor Temple
No cons

There is no other place to stay in Luxor that can compare. The Winter Palace is superb. Some scoff at the high price, and indeed you can stay next door in the adjacent sister Accor Pavillion hotel for half the price, but we found that the Old Winter Palace rooms have a timeless charm that are simply divine. Most rooms have a balcony overlooking the Nile or lush green garden. If you only have one night in Luxor, this is the place to splurge. It's still much more affordable than a luxury hotel in Cairo, and worth every penny! The facilities are 5 star and truly make you feel like you're staying at a fine european resort, but at a fraction of the cost! The rooms are large and comfortable. The view is absolutely stunning, especially over morning coffee on the balcony while felucca boats sail calmly down the palm-rich Nile below, with morning call to prayer humming distantly in the background. It's an equally lovely moment at sunset. Nothing is more exquisite than the impression this setting leaves on your mind. And the location is ideal. It's right next to the Luxor Temple which offers amazing sightseeing both day and night. The airport is only 15 minutes away by taxi. And the souks at the bazaar are just steps away. That is, if you can tear yourself away from your room, the pool, the elegant lounge where afternoon tea is served each day, or the tranquil gardens where you can sit and read a book or smoke a pipe. We highly recommend the Old Winter Palace Hotel and will return again most certainly.

Brilliant position with great sense of history”

Huge rooms with massive bathrooms, beautiful outdoor pool area, wonderful sense of old world grandeur, very helpful friendly staff.
1816 restaurant was over-hyped and needs to be dragged into 21st century !

From the moment you step through the front door you feel as if you are being swept into another world. This was King Farouk's winter palace and it is easy to imagine being a part of this era. The hotel displays many historic items, which makes it a very interesting place to stay. The position is excellent, being right in the heart of Luxor and opposite the Nile. Wonderful friendly staff help to make your stay and the hotel restaurants are all very good value apart from the 1816 fine dining option (see above) The rooms are well appointed and very spacious and the pool area is really lovely. I have to mention the lifts - these are probably the quaintest lifts left in operation in the world !

Old historical hotel with great atmosphere;

This is for sure the best place to stay in Luxor! An historical place with the best modern facilities where you can relax and leave behind the busy city noise. The garden and swimmingpool are amazing. Great place to hang out for a few days and really relax. Location is very central.

Lovely heritage hotel”

It's a little expensive for what you get purely as a hotel compared to others in the area, but if you like heritage hotels it's worth the money. Great location near the temple, great pool, good restaurant, nice bar and good staff made for a nice stay. The garden is also a lovely place to sit or take a slow walk after a busy day exploring. If you just want a good hotel manybe there are others better value, if you like heritage hotels with a bit of history, this is the best choice for Luxor .

They don’t build them like this anymore”

This building is from another time. The floors. The ceilings. The chandaleirs and lights. And the period furniture. Just amazing. It’s worth the time to stroll the wide hallways checking out all the photographs and paintings. Climbing the magnificent staircase. And looking out onto the gardens. Even on a 45 deg day, the gardens felt cool and calm. And then there is the huge pool area at the back. The staff were all friendly and efficient. Breakfast buffet was great too. Nile view room was large and comfortable with a small balcony to sit out on and relax. Very nice marble tiled bathroom with a tub & shower. Overall, this place is definitely worth considering.
