The Old Cataract hotel is one of the top hotels on earth, with a lot of history on an exclusive location. Its personel is excellent and the service top level, as if we were the only guests (which we were not!). Of course, you pay for this... but every eurocent, dime or Egyptian pound was well spent. If you can afford it, take one of the suites in the palace with Nile view! And go and eat in the '1902' restaurant (we had an exquisite two course meal with Egyptian wine and Italian water for only 50 EUR per person), or at least go and look in the marvelous place. [ The so called 'exclusive' dinner at Fouads Corner was the only activity that did not comply with what we had expected as the waiters were not trained to serve food. ] We hope return as soon as Egypt is on the list again. The current period (March 2013) is excellent to visit the country: the amount of visitors at the monuments is equal to those in 1902! All went safe and quiet... Cairo is 800 km north...
