Laura M. Couples - 21/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were supremely well cared for in this glorious, historically-significant facility that harkens back to a time of great travel during the Gilded Age. In lush surroundings at the first cataract of the Nile, the facility iis lovingly preserved and is a marvel to see. All rooms are magnificent in their detail to period history, but have been lovingly updated to meet the needs of the modern traveler. No detail was neglected to make our stay perfect. It is easily the favorte of the probaby hundred hotels that I have stayed in.

Elena G. R. Couples - 16/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I am extremely grateful to have stayed at the Old Cataract. Our room was 2403. All of our experience could not have been better. The staff at the reception, the room service, the personelle working in the breakfast, the security staff, the employees at the jetty, the cleaning staff EVERYONE was very pleasant, kind and informative. I really liked the fact that there was a currency-exchange machine. The welcome romantic decoration in the room and the fruit and halaweyat and the daily bottles of water made our stay even more comfortable. The bathroom was perfect. The double terrace and balcony had the best view of Aswan landscape. The bed mattress and pillows were the best. It really lives up to its reputation and deserves all the stars! If I stay again at the Old Cataract I would like to repeat the experience in the same beautiful Nile Suite view!

My stay at Sofitel was a dream come true. It was perfect. The hotel guest relations, lounge waiters and security personnel were very attentive, pleasant and friendly. The food was delicious.

We visited this beautiful historical hotel. We enjoyed everything. Very beautiful room with beautiful Nile view. Quite and comfortable room, with beautiful balcony. Tasty breakfast on open terrace and great French restaurant. You feel like in Orient Palace. Staff is very friendly. And all measures for Covid are in place. There is no evening live piano music, but is missed.
