Sofitel WINTER PALACE 5* deluxe – Luxor

This elegant Victorian-style hotel was built in 1886, ideally located on the bank of the river Nile in the heart of Luxor City and next to the Temple of Luxor. The Old Winter Palace is a hotel with a rich history, a favorite place of a long list of Royalties, and connected with Howard Carter’s discovery of the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun.
