This 19th century, colonial palace was once the winter retreat of the Egyptian royal family. Perched on the banks of the River Nile, next to the 3,500 year old Karnak Temple, famous archaeologist Howard Carter once wandered through the Winter Palace's flourishing gardens and posted information about his latest discoveries on the hotel's noticeboard. The hotel exudes a feeling of bygone grandeur and guest rooms are elegantly opulent.
From your window or balcony, watch daily life unfold on the river or enjoy views of the vibrant, palm-filled gardens. To relax after a busy day, dive into the pool or rest under a shady palm tree with a mint tea or cocktail. Ask for a massage from Ashraf, whose magical fingers will melt any tiredness away. Afternoon tea is served in the majestic Victorian Lounge, a place much admired by King Farouk. After watching the sun go down over the Valley of the Kings, dine by candlelight in the lavish French-inspired 1886 Restaurant or choose from an international menu at La Corniche.
