This beautiful and elegant late nineteenth century hotel sits directly on the Nile, close enough to Aswan to reach the souk, Elephantine island and other places of interest on foot but discreetly far enough away from the hustle and bustle. The rooms, now a fabulous 'mélange' of Edwardian elegance with a twist of French flair offer every possible modern amenity.... More

This is an amazing hotel. From the moment we arrived at the gates we were treated as honoured guests. We were whisked to reception by club car and shown to the bar area where we were served a welcome drink and offered towels to freshen up. Check in was all done in the bar area and a hotel representative did... More

We have arranged for a group meeting for a week involving 60 participants. The rooms were unmatched in terms of luxury and comfort, the staff were equally unmatched in their politeness, friendliness and dedication. The ambience of the hotel is just simply magical with the wonderful view of the Nile from the terrace and the rooms. Food was excellent with... More

I recently helped organize a large business meeting at the Old Cataract, and stayed at the hotel for five days total. This is - without a doubt - one of the best and most well-run hotels I have ever visited and worked with. The location by the Nile was breathtaking; the hotel itself was thoughtfully and beautifully restored to top-tier... More

After visiting the Nubian museum, walk three minutes to see the Old Cataract Hotel...an amazing place that has been fully restored to all its grandeur. If you want to splurge on lunch or dinner, this might be the place to do so. I decided to splurge with dinner at the 1902 Restaurant here which had incredible TripAdvisor reviews. For 450... More
