General Information

Old Winter Palace Hotel was built in 1886 in its British Colonial style and became a legend in its own time. 7 suites and 117 rooms, and the very special presidential suite in Victorian period style. The rooms are facing either the beautiful and large tropical garden or the Nile.

Already the first New Years Eve parties with its masked costume balls attracted Crown Princes and Princesses from all of Europe and the Royal families of the Orient made the hotel their preferred residence. When Howard Carter found the treasures in the Royal tomb of TutAnchAmon, it was here at Old Winter Palace that this for the first time was announced to the world.

Old Winter Palace Hotel and its city was famous for its dry climate, and this hotel was the top of the peak for places to stay.

Of those who have stayed here, we can mention King Farouk and King Fouad of Egypt, The Agha Khan, Empress Eugenie of France, the Tsar and Tsarina of Russia, King Juan Carlos of Spain and Prince Charles. Sir Winston Churchill, Field Marshal Montgomery, President Giscard d'Estang, President Gamal Abd el Nasser, President Anwar El Sadat and President Hosny Moubarak. President Jimmy Carter and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Prime Minister M. Tatcher and Councilor Helmut Kohl. Of course Agatha Christie and Howard Carter, as Egypt's own Omar El Sherif - and the list goes on...

In the bar you can find old books to accompany your favourite drink before a dinner in the small gourmet restaurant 1886. The front terrace is facing the Nile and you can hardly find a better place to see the red sun going down behind the Valley of Kings on the other side of the flood. The beautiful and large garden have a large swimming pool and a perfect place to make your night stroll if you are not ready for the more crowded streets.

There is no place on our planet where more ancient monuments and treasures still are found, as here in Luxor - to live in one of these historical monuments will certainly add value to your stay.
