The Old Catarct is a gem on the bike. This place has a charming atmospheres, breathtaking view, excellent drinks, and Mariana was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. A prefect break spot after a day of site seeing in beautiful Aswan.

Dry sandwich

Afternoon Tea at the Old Catract Hotel Aswan was part of our Uniworld Splendours of the Nile cruise and we were so looking forward to it. The hotel is a beautiful building set in maniucured gardens with lovely views from the terrace where we had our afternoon tea. I just hate to think how far ahead the food had been prepared. The first thing I ate was a sandwich and the top layer of bread was dry. This put me off eating more, despite the good presentation of the food. The other disappointment was the lack of service, it was obvious labour was being saved. There was something on the table which looked like a stainless steel kettle and a square white porcelain container with teabags in it. It took a while for our table of eight or ten to work out that we had to choose a teabag and pour hot water on it. The least we had expected was a china teapot of tea and someone to serve it. However, a staff member did appear when we starting removing cling film from the food and finished that job off for us. This lack of service contrasted so greatly with the excellent, attentive service we experienced both on the SS Sphinx and at the Four Seasons Cairo. Much of the food was left, no one on our table ate much at all. I suspect the all felt the same as I did but were too polite to speak up.

Fantastic morning coffee hotel with a wonderful view of the Nile. Wonderful member of reception team Marina was superb in making the most of our visit. Thoroughly recommend this for any visitor. A beautiful hotel in a great location. Fully deserves five stars.
