My wife and I returned here and stayed for 3 nights. Everything was faultless. We were up-graded to a suite and spent a couple of days just lounging by the superb swimming pool. The hotel is a fantasy of peace, tranquillity, and wonderful service. We will definitely return.

It had been our dream for many years to stay here and at last we managed it. What an amazing place. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite which was stunning. The grounds and the views are stunning. Aswan is a beautiful place. We ate in the 1902 restaurant the first night , it was fantastic. We... More

All rooms in the new building are designed to have view of the NIle and Elephantine Island, as does the pool and breakfast terraces. The suites, bathroom... More

My partner and I, together with some friends we had made on a Nile cruise went to the Old Cataract for afternoon tea. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the whole affair was a shambles. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, but the service really let it down. Afternoon tea wasn't cheap and is somewhat a must-do... More

I would like to thank again the staff of Old Cataract who made our stay in Aswan a fantastic experience. Everything was perfect, from the room (recently renovated) to the breakfast, the friendliness of the staff and the amazing pool by the Nile. What else to stay? If you can afford it don't hesitate.

This glamourous old hotel provided my daughter and I with a memorable couple of days in May 2015. Situated on the banks of the Nile river in Aswan, we found it superb in every way: service, rooms and location. The rooms featured a pillow menu! Just to put our stay in historic context, prior to leaving London, we watched Agatha... More
