We only stayed one night at the Old Cataract hotel - had we known just how great it was, we would have extended that stay! The common areas of the hotel - -both in the Palace Wing and the new wing - are gorgeous, from the woodwork to the lighting. Service on the terrace is a little slow, but with...

This hotel could be seen as top of the edge in Egypt. We (my wife and I) stayed there during our honeymoon for the third part (first Cairo - stressful city, second Luxor - cultural overkill). We really enjoyed the hotel itself. Seeing before the actual Egypt in Cairo, and the historic Egypt in Luxor - this place was the...

This has been an amazing experience. The staff makes you feel special from the moment you entre the hotel. The smile and thier willingness to help the guests, I haven't experienced this before in any 5* hotels around the globe. Rooms with Nile view are unbelievably romantic. Breakfast in the room was just a feast in its own. The manager...

I visited there twice on the same trip. Definitely must have brunch and/or lunch on their famous terrace. The food is good and the service is impeccable. The view from the hotel rooms or from any elevated platform there is beyond amazing. If you are in Aswan you must pass by the old cataract or stay there

I've traveled to many countries for both business and pleasure, and I've been fortunate enough to have experienced the best the world has to offer. But this visit to Egypt was the most important travel plan of my life, because it was for a family reunion after 47 years apart. We wanted it to be special. Our stay was amazing,...

My husband and I visited the Old Cataract in Aswan on 25th November while on a Nile River cruise. We were hoping to enjoy a full afternoon tea but we were very disappointed. The service was very slow and unfriendly, so that we ran out of time and could only share a quick single pot of tea between us. As...

This is a review of the spa only- will post a second review of the hotel overall. I was very unhappy with the pedicure I received at the spa- the technician barely scrubbed my heels- I had almost as much dead skin still there when I left as when I arrived. I even asked her to scrub more but she...

We stayed three nights in a wonderful room in the new Nile wing. The view from the balcony was stunning. The room itself was fab, had a very comfortable bed, a great bathroom and comfortable sitting area. Service was very good. The pool and pool area were well looked after. As were both the wonderful front and back gardens. Inside,...
