Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor
Ranked #3 of 54 Hotels in Luxor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

If you want shiny and new everything, you might not like this. If you enjoy history, character and charm, this is it. The buffet breakfast was the best I've had anywhere in the world. Well done. Clean, quiet, helpful staff, great internet, beautiful gardens and pool, view of the Nile. I brought a group here and we all loved it. Seriously a first class hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in the old palace!

Celebrated my honey’s birthday at the Sofitel Winter Palace Hotel in Luxor in magnificent style with superior service. Stayed in a Luxury Nile River View King room #247 with a 18 foot ceiling, great bed, fast WiFi, desk, sitting area and a nice bathroom. This hotel was built 1905 and has had numerous upgrades. We felt like royality with the high quality service that was offered to the guests. After dinner, in the 1886 Restaurant, we came back to our room to find the staff putting a heart of flowers on the bed and writing happy birthday with flower stems. Now that’s above and beyond when all I did was mention that a birthday was being celebrated. The normal service is superior and based on our experience special events over the top.

Room Tip: Nile river view rooms are special, but the garden view rooms are lower in price and nice too.

We had the king Farook room. Just what I like. History and plenty of space. The bathroom was fine. Staff were helpful and charming. Mustafa who checked us in and out and generally organised everything. The pool and pool bar area were fine....only complaint is limited champagne....and what was on the list was not available. Dinner at the more relaxed restaurant......please rethink the tie situation in the French one. The bar served excellent cocktails. All in all a hotel I would be happy to return to

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.

Stayed: May 2017
