This would be the one of the best hotels we have stayed in - character, charm, luxury and friendliness of staff. We stayed in a room more like a suite, in the older section. Large expansive bedroom, walk in wardrobe, large bathroom. The bar on ground floor is great and tea or drinks on the terrace is the place to be. Also a very impressive dining room for breakfast. A special thanks to Marina, from Guest Relations, who gave us a tour of Agatha Christie’s suite ( where she wrote Death on the Nile) and Churchill’s suite. Also thanks to Hedra (small) and Assran who provided us with high tea at sunset on the terrace. All excellent staff at this hotel. Well done!

Eternal classic on the Nile

Still a classic after intense renovation in last years. Location unforgettable. Room on the Cataract impressive. Pool well positioned and relaxing . Food and service perfect. Special mention to the 1901 restaurant. Service classic and kind. Spacious room.

The high tea was delicious ! The setting is beautiful, I came here as part of an Intrepid tour in Egypt. The service was wonderful. Hedra and Assaran provided excellent and attentive service! :) We sat on the terrace and enjoyed a pleasant evening. I felt like I was transported back in time to an old world!

Luxury, comfort, beauty, and joy!

From the very first moment, we felt warmly welcomed to the Old Cataract Hotel. The staff members were attentive and consistently made us feel at home. Everyone, from housekeeping to security to customer services, greeted us with a smile. We ate most of our meals in the hotel restaurants and were delighted by how friendly the service was. The waiters in the 1902 restaurant even brought me cake on my birthday and sang to me in English and Arabic! Special thanks to Mariam in the restaurants and Fayzeh (?) at the front desk, who exceeded expectations in helping us plan our time in Aswan. We stayed in Room 1222. I think it is the finest hotel room we've ever had, in terms of size, quality of the amenities, graciousness, and the two balconies with spectacular views of the Nile in both directions. Thank you as well to the young men working at the pool, who kept the lounging area clear and accessible.
