This is a long overdue review on our stay at the Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Aswan. We stayed there for 2 nights so we could visit Abu Simbel, and board the cruise from Aswan to Luxor. Much anticipated since it was a heritage property. Booked 2 rooms via the Singapore call centre for Sofitel, requesting twin beds for both. When we checked in, only got one of such rooms and the second room came with one king bed. Would have been an uncomfortable sleeping arrangement for us in the second room and the front desk was helpless, but thankfully, their Exec Housekeeper Taha sorted something out for us. Room stay was fantastic eventually and we had great views of Elephantine from our balcony. Highly recommended for a long walk there by the way. Meals were good and we also had a nice dinner one evening at the iconic 1902 restaurant as well. Taha also took us on a tour of the hotel showing us the famous Agatha Christie Suite. Down the corridors, looking at the images of famous persons that stayed at the Old Cataract or had something significant to to with Aswan, was mind blowing. When it came to checking out, we agreed it was a great stay and promised to recommend the place to everyone. Little did we know, another incident would make us even more grateful. A friend from the other room had dropped one side of her earring in her room and realised it only when we boarded the boat. Thankfully we were not setting sail immediately. She rang the hotel and the response from Taha was immediate. They had already found the one earring even before she called. Truly exemplary of care and service and beyond, the earring was delivered to the boat. We weren’t even on the boat when the delivery came, I don’t think my friend ever got to thank Taha personally for everything. Least we can do now is to acknowledge our wonderful stay at the Sofitel Old Cataract and to express our gratitude to Taha for all his hospitality and help. It made all the biggest difference for our stay in Aswan! Thank you, Taha!
