Excellent location and comfort
The hotel was not very busy while we were there. Not all of the restaurants were open and for dinner, only the more formal dining was available. We were able to order off of the bar menu, out on the terrace, but had to request this. The staff was very friendly and around the pool, the staff came by frequently to see if anything was needed, bring an ice bucket for water or to bring free snacks. We were upgraded when we checked in with a nice room overlooking the gardens. There was a very small balcony but it was too hot to use it. The air conditioning worked well, beds and pillows very comfortable and a large room. We had a tray of fruit and desserts when we arrived but the room attendant never took the dirty dishes away. Also, after the first night at turn down, our towels were not freshened and we did not receive water. The location is excellent, overlooking the Nile and across the river you can get a sunset over the Valley of the Dead. About 2-3 blocks down is Luxor Palace, which was safe to walk to day or night (aside from the many people following you for your business to buy something or for a horse/carriage ride.) Overall, worth the stay. Great location, comfortable, clean and good service.

Old Palace Still Pleases
The Winter Palace is a wonderful old building located right in the heart of Luxor, and in the heart of Egyptian history. The grounds are beautiful very well-kept, although the hotel is need of minor renovation in order to earn the 5-star rating I would really like to give it. We had a great experience there, and enjoyed staying in a hotel that was part of the original grand tour. The manual elevator doors and giant keys for the rooms added to the character. Our only complaints were that the building in general could use a fresh coat of paint, and other minor things like the carpet was loose around our balcony door and would get stuck on the door. These are minor problems, but for a Sofitel and the premium price that comes with it, you would expect a bit better. Luxor is virtually empty right now due to the ongoing revolution in Egypt, but we would highly encourage people to go, because you have the place to yourself, and you likely won't be disappointed with the Winter Palace.

Historic hotel for wanna be Egyptologists
Loved this historic hotel with beautiful garden and helpful staff. If you want perfect and new, then it's not for you, but we appreciated the history, the building, the breakfast room, and the balconies. It was positioned perfectly for visiting the main sites. And it also has a nice pool area for dolling down after a long day visiting the tombs and temples. The concierge and reception helped us with all arrangements and gave great advice. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Luxor.

A rare taste of the grand hotels of the past
The Winter Palace provides taste of what the grand hotels of the early 20th century were like. The rooms are large and well appointed, the halls are vast, the public spaces, which include a room for afternoon tea, are opulent, and the staff is exceptionally helpful. Some of the furnishings and rugs are showing their age. But this is an amazing place to spend a few days.
