« We loved every minute of our stay at the old Cataract Hotel »

On arrival we were met by the Guest Relations employee Ustina, She proudly showed us around the property and hotel facilities. She also recommended having dinner at the famous 1902 restaurant to celebrate a special occasion which we did. The service by the waiters at this restaurant was impeccable and we just loved the attention we received. The terrace cafe staff and Maitre D were extremely professional and the service we received made us feel very special.

« The best experience ever »

I came to this hotel, and would like never to have to leave again. Everything is most truly amazing, from the welcome, to the rooms, to the food and most importantly the staff. I have had a most wonderful time. The beauty of it, the beauty of the gardens, are stunning. Thank you to everyone who helped make my stay one of the most memorable of my life.

« Unparalleled service and comfort! »

From the moment we arrived, we knew our stay at the Old Cataract Hotel would be special. The service was the best we've ever experienced at any hotel. The rooms were so stunningly beautiful and comfortable that we didn't want to leave. The view of the Nile was spectacular. The food was delicious. Every aspect of our stay was perfect!

« A Magical stay at a MAGICAL HOTEL »

My stay at the softies old cataract in Aswan was nothing short from magical. The place has strange vibe of tranquility that seriously took us away from our busy life. I've travelled a lot and I can honestly say that this hotel has the best view I have ever seen. Moreover, The staff are really helpful and extremely polite. The manager himself came and greeted us, offered us complimentary drinks and complimentary room upgrade. Definitely coming back.

Enjoyed all the food we had in the restaurants. Room was a lovely as ever and spotlessly clean. Pool was nice and relaxing as was the spa. Really nice to see all the staff smiling and happy. They welcomed us back with their usual warmth. Oraba (pool man) is an ambassador for you hotel.

« Wife’s Birthday stay »

In short, our stay was absolutely fantastic. The staffs attentiveness and ability to be able to meet our demands before we had even thought of them was exceptional. We felt very much at home almost immediately. The service was only outdone by the stunning scenery and the wonderful location of the hotel. I had booked the hotel on the back of a recommendation of a friend, and we were not disappointed with it. The booking was for a holiday to celebrate my wife’s birthday and at every opportunity the staff and even the restaurants were there to wish my wife a very happy birthday, which made our stay even more pleasant. We were even treated to a cake delivered to our room as well as having a bath ran with rose petals scattered about our suite. Simply wonderful!

« no words can describe our satisfaction, it was amazing »

we felt that we were living in old royal environment, not a regular hotel.in every corner in the palace there was a story behind, we enjoyed in every second. the staff cooperation, like a family, we feel we were at our home. especially mr.tharwat , who took care about every details during our stay in the hotel , he was one of the reasons that made us more serious to visit the old cataract in this winter again .we thank the old cataract staff and managers for there permission to take our wedding photography at the HOTEL .

« AMAZING from start till End »

Magnificent from AtoZ. I first was booked in another hotel in Aswan. I arrived to Sofitel Legend with the purpose to enjoy a cup of tea, but i was thinking of also booking my business stay, I was met by Front Office Agent (Mr. Peter). His attitude, behaviour and conduct was extremely right, professional, and representative to a Legend Institution. Then each and every person thereafter from Management and staff enriched the experience much further, Monica, Nevine, Mohamed, Hussein, Sylvia, and many others. I already planning my next stay with my family. I did visit Aswan back in 2004 and also stayed at New Cataract and this second time on my late Aswan visit coined a wonderful expereince for ever. You must be very proud of your team. In the meantime, i was staying 2 nights on a business trip, related to the Solar Energy parks in Benban Aswan. It might be the time for Sofitel to start considering replacing its power consumption from Electricity generated from traditional sources (fossil fuel) to renewable energies, following suit to Aswan largest solar park. If interested, during my next visit i am willing to advice. Thank you all.

Accommodations were beautiful, great view, and excellent service. We wish our stay would have been longer so we could have enjoyed your beautiful hotel and pool. An omelette station at your breakfast buffet would be an improvement to be enjoyed by all.

« The Best Hotel in Aswan! »

Thanks to Front Desk Maanger, Hossam, we spent nice holiday in the room 1xx8 for our 5th marriage anniversary, and the overall experience at Sofitel Aswan Legand is much better than our days in Sofitel Cairo and Old Winter Palace, because of: 1) the view to Nile River and the Garden; 2) the historical room with smart/new decoration; 3) 1921 restaurant for dinner and the Terrace for breakfast. My comment: if you want to explore Aswan, this hotel is the best choice! The Accor Team in Aswan is very experience, always provide professional services and can understand each client from different culture background (important). Agreed with Hossam that this Sofitel Legand is one of the Best Accor Hotels in the world ( I did lots of travel to Sofitel hotels, the others Best from my list include Sofitel Palm in Dubai and St Moris in Queenstown, also Muse in Bangkok). Also, the best wishes to the team, look forward to seeing you again in Aswan!
