My first trip to Egypt included Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. All three hotels selected we're constructed over 100 years ago. I wanted to feel like a nineteenth century British traveler and the Winter Palace exceeded my romantic expectations. I will stay here again on my next trip to Egypt.

All was perfect, keep going on this high level of service. The hotel and its garden are wonderful, unique, a real surprise. The view on the Nil is fantastic. I enjoyed the room, the old design. There is a need perhaps to restore the front of the palace (painting).

It’s very old hotel .big toilet but need some maintenance water on floor every time we use shower. The buffet breakfast was horrible the one good thing is fresh coffee. We stayed 5days they served same breakfast every day and I think they serve leftovers because our 2nd day we noticed some breads had bites and totally not fresh also the egg section is the worst egg we ever had egg is swimming in oil just avoid avoid breakfast not worth any penny. But staff members are very friendly and approachable.also the garden side is very relaxing.

I hope the hotel will be not renovated. It could loose its soul (like the Old cataract unfortunately did...) Just a problem : no business center with a computer for Internet acces. When your telephone is out of service, it is difficult (as it was my experience...)

Staying in a what used to be royal palace is a 5* experiance by itself. But, polite and extremly helpful staff as well as the breathtaking views of the garden, quality of food and amazing ambient is what luxury here is all about.

I stayed in this magnificent hotel for 4 nights, on a 14-day tour of Egypt with my wife and daughter. The experience gained exceeds any initial expectations, especially since at the time of accommodation Miss Sally at the reception, together with the team manager provided us with a room in the hotel complex on the main boulevard with balcony and views of the Nile and the Valley of the Kings. Fantastic ... thank you from the bottom of my heart for your gesture you gave an important boost to our trip. I also want to mention that the location is impressive with lush and exemplary neat interior gardens. The staff and services received were indeed 5 stars. It couldn't be better ... dear Sofitel Luxor team, you will remain in our memory as a wonderful experience and if we have another chance we will step on your doorstep again with the greatest joy.

The ambiance of the hotel transfers you back to the glorious years of adventures and discoveries of the past centuries. A balcony overlooking the River Nile and Valley of King is the perfect spot for a romantic dinner whilst lavishly green garden behind the hotel could provide one with so needed freshness amid summer heat.

It's a second time that I was staying in this hotel and it was AMAZING!!! Probably come back in October month and I suggest to all of you make a reservation exactly at this hotel. Location is just perfect, hotel's staff is so professional and so kind. Personalisation is 100% and u will not find it everywhere event if u paye a high rate. Special thanks to Sarah at the guest relations, she was so helpful. Mohamed ( Chef of the concierge) - so kind with a lot of suggestions which was very helpful. All reception desk were so kind, special thanks to two guys but unfortunately I cannot remember their names, sorry ‍♀️.. One of them was in different costume that everyone, he was at the moment of our check-in but unfortunately, then, I couldn't see him at the moment of the check- out. anyway, I wanted to thank him for his perfect service. And another one, was in the shift with a trainee, BTW who was very kind too, so thanks to him too!!! For someone who would like to do some workout , this hotel is perfect for it. There no gym but they have a huge garden where u can do perfectly yoga, stretching and etc. Thanks to personal at the swimming pool, guys you were so kind, thanks so much!!! Breakfast was a very good, staff also, personal service, u feel yourself like at home. I cannot nothing to tell about laundry service, I take it almost everywhere when I travel and I can say u that we don't have a good experiences all the time about quality but at this hotel, it was perfect!! Good quality of laundry, staff, everything, I was so happy with this. Room Service was very good and staff was very kind, timing was just perfect. Also, special thanks to HSK service. Room was clean every day. They put on the bed some flowers. OMG. It was so cute, thanks to all HSK's staff for this attention.. Just one thing that can be placed like a little bit "negative" it's a quality (sometimes) of the food. I mean, really sometimes but we can feel that it's not a fresh. I think better to have a smaller chose but fresh. It's just a suggestion, in general it's was very tasty Thanks again to everyone for our perfect stay at your property. I'll come back for sure!! Hope to see in October month Sincerely, Alena
