Winter Palace

With the opening of the Luxor Hotel in 1886/7 the nobility of Europe arrived at Luxor to visit the nearby Valley of the Kings. 20 years later the Winter Palace - under the same management company - was opened.

“One is immediately struck by the Victorian flavour of the place.” a visitor is reported to have said.

Over the years it has played host to leading politicians, actors and writers on a regular basis. In fact, the ultimate privilege - so it was said - was to have had one’s own yacht moored along the quayside, opposite the Winter Palace.(see: History)
