We liked the ambience of the hotel and it’s historical vibes. It is very beautiful inside. We had a perfect room with a Nile view. The location is very good and convenient. The variety on breakfast was good however, some products were not very fresh. I had difficulties to connect to the internet. However these two issues are very small and not important for me. Overall experience was wonderful and I’d like to return.

My best hotel experience

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Abir Solo - 24/04/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Winter Palace has its own magic, the palace has soul to it, the palace rooms are amazing, the staff is very chic and. have amazing hospitality, very well mannered, have great experience with clients and friendly, the garden is one of the most beautiful garden, i liked the food very much too, it would be nice to include more dairy free options, one of my favorite things was the hour they got a flute musician wearing classic galabeya to play before sunset. The one single draw back was the wifi, the signal was strong, but the speed was very low and it was hard for me to get work done as i wanted to. But really overall, I would easily say it is my favorite hotel in all of egypt, even nicer than other Accor hotels

As usual the staff at the Winter Palace ensured that my stay was just as good (if not better) than staying at home. They are always very professional, polite and courteous. Sadly the WiFi is not always upto standard. In addtion it worries me in this time of the Pandemic that very few of your Guests are wearing face masks - but I am not sure what you can do about this?

Very good location on the River Nile. Built 1882. Efficient check in. Spacious rooms. Amazing historical furniture, paintings and carpets from the old days. Huge lounge with historical chandeliers, piano, sofas, tables in every corner. Wide range of Resturant’s, some with formal dress. Amazing gardens and wide balconies overlooking the gardens and a heated swimming pool. Delicious first class food. Well served by professional staff.

What a great relaxing stay at the Winter Palace Hotel last week.

The Hotel is providing a a meticulus service to ensure that all neceassry precaustions are taken against the spread of Covid 19. Excellent service at the Poolside and in the 1886 Restaurant. Dinner and Brakfast (in the room) could not have been better.
