Sofitel Winter Palace - Luxor

Holidays to Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor

The Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor, formally known as The Old Winter Palace, is one of Egypt’s most iconic hotels that has hosted both dignitaries and international celebrities over the years. Built in 1886, the Winter Palace has maintained much of its historical heritage and has combined this with modern facilities to offer guests a truly unique and memorable experience. Amongst the palms trees and bougainvillea of the Winter Palace’s legendary semi-tropical gardens are the pool, a bar and a restaurant - an ideal spot for relaxation, seemingly far away from the busy centre of Luxor. Yet the hotel is only minutes away from Luxor temple and many of the city’s main sights.
