We stayed in the Superior Nile room for 3-nights and was given one on the 3rd floor of the hotel. Room was large and well appointed with a balcony that had a great view of the river. Bathrooms were also large and beautiful.

The breakfast is a real sumptuous spread and the service is impeccable. Overall a great choice for a hotel in Luxor.

All and everything in this place is excellent: the majestic main building, its furnishing and atmosphere and above all its ultra-dedicated and friendly staff. The vast botanical garden, rather a park, is the place for a dreamscape swimming pool bordered by terraces and palmtrees; also here the service is excellent.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel Winter Palace in Luxor. From the historical atmosphere, to its gardens and to the huge swimmingpool. We had an enourmous sophisticated suite with a kingsize bed, furnished in perfect harmony with the hotel historical style. It was clean, pleasant and staff was very helpful and friendly. Moreover food was traditional, tasty and fresh. Hotel was also offering live shows and outdoor bars to add a perfect entertaining and relaxing touch to our holiday.

A group of friends......we stayed for 5 days in this wonderful and historic Hotel, absolutely loved it always wanted to stay here bring a history buff, the thought of Lord Canarvon and Howard Carter announcing to the world their monumental find of Tutankhamuns Tomb. The hotel has most of its original features you are literally taken back to a time of discovery, the grand staircase, the chandeliers. The rooms are large with huge French doors leading to a balcony overlooking the Nile. I watched the sun make its entrance and exit from my balcony and thought of the Ancient Egyptians Goddess Mut who swallowed the sun at night and gave birth to it in the morning..had an amazing view of Valley of the kings and Hatshepsuts Temple all lit up at night.
The gardens beautiful poolside area stunning we had lunch beside the pool food was delicious and fresh, herbs picked from the garden.
The staff were amazing so attentive and Mohammed Ahmed made special arrangements for us to see the Royal suite...was something else.
Staff in the restaurants and room service brilliant, they turned down the bed at night and left flowers and little cakes in our room.
Would love to stay here again...I have recently been back on a horse riding holiday on the West Bank was lovely to look at this magnificent old building from the other side of the bank.

Room Tip: Nile views are of course the very best, but the gardens are also very beautiful

We popped in for tea and after being escorted back in time in the Victoria room we were presented with a lively box of sorted tea items with a pot of tea (or coffee) delivered by a train of staff. Refills came as needed and we were able to sit and chat for several hours.
