We stayed at the Old cataract for three nights at the end of our Nile cruise – and it truly was one of the highlights. The hotel is set in beautiful gardens overlooking the Nile. Leaving the street and passing through the gate one enters a different world. A very elegant, luxurious and beautifully renovated property that has retained its old world charm – in fact it is the most beautiful colonial style hotel we have ever stayed at. We were upgraded to a suite with Nile view: very comfortable bed, great sitting area with large flatscreen tv, enormeous bathroom with seperate shower and toilet . It was just perfect with attention to detail and very tastefully decorated.
We had dinner and breakfast on the terrace. The food was good and well presented. The staff very attentive. Sitting there, enjoying your food and looking out over the water to Elephantine Island and watching the feluccas sail past – it felt somehow magical like being in a bygone era.. We had drinks at some of the bars, inside and outside, relaxing after days of sightseeing.
In the end we felt very sorry to leave. Given the opportunity we would go back immediately. It is a rather expensive hotel, but worth every penny.
