Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor 5 Star 5 Star

This famous hotel was built in 1886 in the British Colonial style and was soon to become the leading hotel in Luxor. It was here that news of Howard Carter's discovery in the Valley of the Kings was first posted to inform the guests of the day. The list of previous guests reads like a who’s who of the last hundred years and includes King Farouk and King Fouad of Egypt, the Agha Kan, the Tsar and Tsarina of Russia, Sir Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Montgomery, Howard Carter and so on.

Offering all the amenities and comfort of a modern hotel enhanced with a unique atmosphere and the splendour of times past. Set amongst beautiful grounds and overlooking the Nile, the Sofitel Winter Palace has a subtle blend of intimacy and grandeur. 


Located on the Nile river within easy walking distance of the heart of Luxor. Transfer time from the airport approximately 15 minutes.
