I loved this old hotel. Our large room overlooked the garden. At night, lovely scents and oud music floated up from the lush tropical garden. We took all of our meals except for the lavish breakfast poolside.
The bathroom was luxurious and the bathtub was big enough to stretch in after a long day of touring the sights.
The hotel is well located near the ruins of Luxor and the town.
Really, if you are doing the grand tour of Egypt, you need to stay here.

A wonderful four nights in the Winter Palace. Central location to shops, restaurants and monumental sites. The palace is totally charming in old world grandeur. Have always wanted to live in a palace! Comfortable well serviced rooms looking onto the activities on the Nile. Very difficult to leave the spacious pool area for sightseeing. The garden is soooo green and beautiful.
Breakfasts are fabulous with huge array of choices.
We enjoyed cocktails and canapés to the sound of a pianist on the baby grand. Very cosy and atmospheric.
All the staff have been kind and friendly. A special mention to Sally on reception for being happy and helpful. Highly recommend anyone visiting Luxor to stay a while here!

This is without a doubt one of the best hotels in Egypt, and definitely the best place to stay in Luxor. Despite it’s aging interior, it conjures up a bygone era in every way: in the hallways, the rooms, the restaurant and grounds. Even the staff echo an old world of luxury and wonderfully personal service. They have signature rooms like the King Farouk room that have some of Egypt’s last kings’ personal bedroom furniture when this palace served as one of his homes. I cannot recommend the amazing Winter Palace enough to any traveller.

Walk through the front door and enter into another world. The hustle and bustle of Egyptian life is no where to be found within these walls.
The place is simply very elegant and has probably been like this for over 100 years. The problem is I think that the hotel relies too much on its past reputation and some parts of the hotel really do need an upgrade.
Nevertheless the service is excellent and staff are generally quite charming. But this place is exorbitant on the cost front, such as £15 sterling pounds for a GandT by the pool.
The evening meals were ok. We dined in the main restaurant each evening and the food was good but I wouldn’t say outstanding.....and it should be. The wine mark-up is horrendous and what more guy cost you £6 in the UK will cast at least £40+ in the restaurant- but what can you do? You cannot have a decent evening meal without the wine now can you!
We stayed in a garden facing room and it was superb ( better in my view that the Nile View rooms where you have to contend with the main road and general noise outside. The room we stayed in could not be faulted. It was excellent and spacious and very comfortable.
If you come to Luxor and can afford it if only for one night.... just do it. To hell with the expense. It is not every day one stays in one of the finest hotels in the world.
