krisztel TripAdvisor review

We wanted to enjoy a drink with a group of friends. We were not allowed. It seems that outside guests cannot sit down and order whatever they want. There is a 500egp min charge, one need to pay that before ordering. We made the nice man from the restaurant very uncomfortable with our movement in the lobby. It seems without the 500egp voucher we cannot move in the lobby. It was a very very bad experience, never saw a hotel where quests from outside cannot freely enjoy a drink, but they are taxed in advance. Definetely has nothing to do with Egyptian hospitality and other historical hotels of Egypt. Mena House, Winter Palace we can walk in and enjoy the restaurants and cafes

Anthem49 Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

Here on an OAT tour. Nice view from the veranda. Fair buffet. Good service. Good size room. Comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Needs some work but acceptable by Egyptian standards, as of this writing. No major problems. Good coffee and tea service in room.

Amazing experience! Thank you Moh

Christina C Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

I had the pleasure of experiencing the Cataract Hotel in Aswan during an afternoon tea on their terrace, and it was truly enchanting. The setting, right on the Nile with a felucca boat gliding by, was absolutely stunning. Although we were on an excursion and stayed on our own private boat with a group of 17 people, our visit to the Cataract Hotel was made even more special by the knowledgeable and gracious Moh, who allowed us to explore the suite where Agatha Christie penned "Death on the Nile." This historic gem of a hotel is a testament to elegance and charm. Without a doubt, our next visit to Aswan will include a stay at the Cataract Hotel.

Joey M TripAdvisor review

I lead a very special retreat throughout ancient Egypt. Having high tea in Aswan at The Old Cataract is always a special experience. I always ask for Moh— he is a very special employee, friendly and an excellent representative of the hotel. He bends over backwards to make sure our time at the hotel is special, including a tour of the Agatha Christie Suite.
