The Cataract Hotel Aswan is a stunning historical property perched on the banks of the Nile River. The hotel's colonial-era architecture and lush, manicured gardens create an oasis of tranquility in the bustling city of Aswan. Guests can enjoy unparalleled views of the Nile from the hotel's pool and restaurants. The rooms are spacious and elegantly appointed, providing a luxurious yet authentic experience. The Cataract Hotel is an ideal base for exploring Aswan's ancient wonders, with impeccable service and world-class amenities that make it one of the top hotels in the region

Julia W TripAdvisor review

We had the most incredible stay at the Old Cataract Hotel. I cannot recommend it more highly. The staff are truly impeccable. The hotel is as impressive as ever. From the moment we arrived it was like stepping back in time. The grounds are immaculate with beautiful water displays and plants and we appreciated the electric car ride, cold fresh juice and red carpet treatment on arrival! The service, food and setting are outstanding and our family had a vacation they will always remember. Kirolos was charming, friendly and helped us with all our needs. I really enjoyed Kirilos' tour of the hotel which is steeped in history. Huge thanks Kirolos and all the staff for making our stay so perfect. Also a shout out for a bar waiter we called ‘Little Boss’. He opened up a bar for us so we could watch a late night Euros match and restored the electricity after a black out! Thank you Little Boss. We enjoyed our evening with you. This hotel is worthy of the highest status - up there with the best in the world. Rooms; We arrived earlier than expected and our rooms were upgraded so we could check in straight away. This hotel used to be a palace and the rooms were palatial! Very glamorous and so much space! My children enjoyed the space! Food and Drinks; Breakfast in the 1902 room is one you will never forget. The friendly staff brought us a feast on tiered cake stands. I felt like I was in the Agatha Christie movie Death on the Nile! Drinks by the pool were delicious (recommend mango juice and Mocktails). We took lunch and dinner on the balcony restaurant and it was a feast of flavours. We kept returning as it was so good! Despite it being very hot they kept us comfortable with fans outside. We hope to return one day soon xx
