Gorgeous location. I stayed in a Nile View room in the new wing. It had an amazing view over the Nile. The room was spacious, with a lovely balcony, comfy bed and huge bathroom. Food was excellent. The manger, Mr. Osama, was lovely and extremely helpful and really knows how a luxury hotel should work. I would recommend staying in...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 December 2016

This was the highlight of my visit to Egypt. Staying there made me want to go back to the country but only to Aswan - and definitely to stay there again. It was just breathtaking. The property. The view. I remember staring at the River Nile from my room's balcony with feluccas floating and the Elephantine Island across it -...

Beautiful hotel. We booked a premium twin room with Nile view in the new building. The room was stunning with a large balcony overlooking the Nile. Great breakfast buffet in an incredible colonial hall. The only negative thing was in the oriental restaurant, it was too expensive for the food we got, badly lit and crapy service.

We had afternoon high tea on the terrace over looking the Nile and it was great. The staff friendly and food perfect. Being from the uk I've had high tea in all the best places. The Ritz, Browns Hotel but I have to say this was beaten them all. Mainly because of the setting but also because of the whole...

This was our fourth stay at the Old Cataract, but the first since it was totally renovated by Sofitel, about 12 years ago. A memorable stay indeed, the kind that memorable souvenirs are made of. We were upgraded to a suite overlooking the Nile with a huge balcony that ran all around the suite. This is where we spent our...

Everything was perfect in this hotel, the reception, the check in, the rooms, the food and the most (the view), if we go again to Aswan, will not hesitate to stay in the same hotel. The hotel is a destination by itself. Staff is very nice, Viola at the reception very kind and helpful, the Maitre Mohammed at the Arabic...

I would love to stay at this hotel, however we had other accommodations. We went here for cocktails and sunset. It was stunning. The service is excellent. We did review the menu which had a nice variety. I thought the prices were reasonable. If you are in Aswan go here even if only for drinks.

This is the 5th time that I have stayed here in the last 2 years, and each time my visits get longer and longer. It is like staying in a magic house, and every time you ask for something, it is there as soon as the staff are able to find it. The renovation is wonderful, as it mixes old...

Most beautiful hotel in Aswan at a very nice spot. Rooms are spacious, but comfort is not given. For examples: carpets were never vacuumed during our stay of 6 nights. Wardrobe and cupboards were dusty. Minibar too. Sofitel makes lots of advertising with there beds but our bed did not have a lush finishing and sleeping directly on the mattress...
