We had a wonderful meal at kabebgy - wow the harissa potatoes were spicy but totally delicious as were the spicy prawns. Live music and wonderful views of the river Nile - a great find - would recommend

Don’t Miss!

This is my second stay at the Old Cataract - it always delivers! It is impeccably decorated and restored, has exceptionally attentive hotel staff, and offers a variety of relaxing spa treatments. The food is great too - the strawberry gazpacho is AMAZING! The Old Cataract will forever remain a treasured experience in Aswan.

Magnificent stay

If you are not staying in the hotel you should at least visit for a meal in one of the restaurants and enjoy the view of the Nile river. Their terrace is a great place to take pictures and the indoor swimming pool must be one of the most beautiful in the country. I stayed in the main building and found it extremely spacious and comfortable. It is pricey but definitely worth it.

Beautiful Hotel

We came for high tea and this is a gorgeous hotel. The pool and views are amazing, the bar is beautiful, as is the library . Great to see a location from the 70s Death on the Nile. The manager, Moh, was very helpful!

Dear Valued Guest, Bonjour Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are glad that you enjoyed your high tea with us and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Mariam Abdulrahman Guest Experience Manager
