It was already the second stay in this beautiful hotel. We love the hotel. Everything from the friendly stuff, cleanliness, the beautiful rooms with high ceilings and the amazing view on the Nile. The beautiful garden with swimming pool is the quiet oasis after day trip to all historic places in Luxor. Strongly recommend.

8/10 Very Good

The winter palace is definitely a memorable trip. However, the hotel needs to be remodeled, the rooms are outdated and they need to be remodeled 💯 The staff did the best they could with what they had to work with especially Muhammad Ali the concierge was very helpful thank you again for everything you done for us 🙏

Experience the Winter Palace.
This historic property, was in fact a palace a one point in the late 1800s. The old world charm of the building remains. The staff are friendly, the breakfast spread is really nice (omelet or egg station), large assortment of options. The gardens of the back property are pristine and serine for a time of reflection, a cocktail or catching up with new friends. The location is really nice, and the nile views are amazing. TRAVELER WARNING: *** WHAT NOT TO DO *** the scams and taking advantage of tourist are frequent. We look like walking money machines for opportunistic locals. DO NOT BOOK A TOUR with your taxi driver from the airport. Ended up on a tour that was supposed to cost 85.00 plus the entry fees. 2nd day was supposed to be 25ish dollars plus entry -- CHARGED US 349 USD for 2 days. BEWARE. Needless to say we got taken. Use a trusted guide from the hotel.
