Relax in the old world charm of the Winter Palace
The location, right close to the centre of Luxor, so that a lot of things were within walking distance.

Luxury vintage, close to center
Beautiful old palace
Lovely atmosphere, nice bedding and sheets; however, services are still needed to be instructed. Once you tell them what you need exactly, they will deliver it. If not, it seems like they keep forgetting. Some staffs don't speak English well enough; so need to go to higher position staff. Heater didn't seem to work at the time.

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.

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 !

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.

The Nicest Hotel I've ever stayed!!
格式高く、最高級。
なし
最高のホテルです! きらびやかなのではなく、落ち着いていて格式があります。 廊下がとても広く、ゆったりラグジュアリーな滞在ができると思います。 部屋も最高級です。部屋もバスルームも広い! 私が泊まったのはガーデンビューですが、ベランダから見えるガーデンが素敵でした。プールはガーデンの少し奥に入ったところにあるので、部屋から見られる心配もなく良かったです。Sunset(8月末で20時頃)まで泳げました。 ちょっと高いかなと思いましたが、このホテルなら納得です! 若い世代の方達にも、このホテルで一泊することをお勧めします!
