Hotel's Favourite
This hotel was wonderful for us. The location on the Nile makes it easy to reach the Luxor and Karnak temples, and easy to cross the river if needed to the West Bank. The grounds are amazing - especially at night. The pool was extremely large and very warm even in December

I rarely found a better quality of staff as the one that runs the Winter Palace and look after the guests individually with professional efficiency and utmost friendliness. The building retains all its past glory and grandeur, and hopefully will undergo some needed repairs

Is the $750 USD deposit per night accurate?
if you book direct with the hotel they will take your credit card details and charge you one night for a 'no show' otherwise they do not use the card at all

As I'm a member I booked directly on the Accor hotel site. I had to pay the entire amount in advance and there was no refund allowed. Fortunately I was not looking for one and enjoyed my stay very much, but if you book directly with them you have to pay for your room in advance.

"Chose the Nile facing rooms"
"Garden View was stunning, but Nile view would be equally amazing."
"Garden rooms are more quiet"
"High floor has a better view of the garden."
"Do not let them put you next to an elevator, they are very old and make way too much noise."
US$111 - US$265 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
