It is my first stay in the hotel . I went there before in the eighties just to watch the famous hotel when I was a young medical student in a college journey to Aswan and I fell in love with that marvelous place and decided when I can afford it I will go and stay at one of its... More

We have just returned from 2 weeks of pampering at the Old Cataract Hotel in Aswan. Having mentioned when booking that the 2 weeks included my partner's birthday, we had the good fortune to be upgraded to a vast suite in the new wing - on the 5th floor with 2 panorama windows and MAGNIFICENT views. Yes, undoubtedly the Old... More

To start off with, this hotel is far and away THE most beautiful hotel I have ever stayed in. It is clean, tasteful, and I really appreciate that they have kept the "old charm" of the era. I really felt like early 1900s royalty...like King Farouk himself. And the breakfast buffet is to die for. Like....amazing. Unfortunately my praise ends... More

Generally positive feedback. My main negative concern is that the hotel stuff didn't provide me with possible entertainment facilities in Aswan for more quality enjoyment in the city. In spite of I have sent an email before my check in asking on entertainment outings through Cataract or independently I got no reply. A written handout with valuable places to visit... More

In all fairness, this was the best hotel we found let alone stayed at on our trip to Egypt. We went to Aswan as the final leg of Nile River Cruise. We hadn't planned on staying there however we went for High Tea and were amazed by the view so we decided to stay a night. As previously mentioned, the... More

The stay was very inspiring, we stayed at a suite in the old wing, while our freinds stayed in the new wing in a suite also, both were very beutiful. Breakfast was so nice and the views from the room were out of this world. In the morning we took a 2-hour boat ride to the Botanical gardens right from... More

The property is full of antiques and luxurious furnishings which are beautifully cared for. Staff pampers you from the moment you arrive at the gates. We chose to stay in the modern portion of the hotel due to the fact that we needed two rooms with one of them having two beds for our kids. The plus to the modern... More

I initially struggled about whether I should give this hotel an 'average' or 'very good'. I decided on 'average' because there were a few issues that I don't think I should have encountered given the 'poshness' of the hotel. The 'good': - Overall, I think the setting is spectacular - and that did really make a difference to me. It... More
