Amazing service at 1902 restaurant and all of the staff throughout our entire time here. Such a lovely place. We shall return as often as we can. With pleasure. We stayed three nights and every night was better and better. The food was also amazing. We dined at the royal table and enjoyed the most beautiful view of 1902 restaurant. Thank you! Amun Starr

Promanade terrance View at the old cataract is mind blowing! Gorgeous view, absolutely friendly and amazing staff Starting from Mr Wafdy on the phone for the ease of reservation; Mr Hedra (little) for the beautiful greetings and warmth of reception; and Mr Assran for his hospitality,recommendation of the high end afternoon tea and Mr Ahmed help and service. An afternoon tea is a must with the variety of sandwiches and pastries and the astonshing view of the elephantine island. If you visit Aswan, It is a must🤍 an absolute delight ✨

Wonderful hotel. Everything was perfect. The views are amazing. The hotel has the old Egypt charm combined with modern amenities. Our room was massive and totally remodel/new. I am sorry I didn't book a longer stay. But we'll be back.
