I had the pleasure of visiting the Old Cataract twice in the span of a month. Both times, the hotel and staff exceeded my expectations and made for a wonderful stay. The building and rooms have been renovated to world class standards, while still retaining much of the old charm of the historic property. The entire staff, from the general... More

I stayed at SLOC with my wife and daughter for three nights in October 2014. Everything about this stay was great. The hotel itself is a piece of art, super clean, and the room was wonderful; you get the get the best view of Aswan from your room.

The review " A Legend with a view..." gives a full description which doesn't need repeating. There was no disappointment here. We had heard of this hotel and it was on our list "must go" and so glad we did. It was everything one could expect from such a grand old piece of history. Superb comfort, unfaultable room and probably... More
