« Perfect Place to Be »

The only regret I have in this hotel is staying only 2 nights – I should have stayed in this hotel the entire 9 days I’m in Egypt! The service is impeccable, the foods are delicious and the Nile views are stunning. We did everything in this hotel – got a Couples Massage with Jacuzzi which was fabulous; used the steam room; swam in indoor & outdoor pool; dine at 1902 Restaurant and Garden restaurant. Everyone in this hotel are friendly and accommodating, we wanted to get another massage but we just don’t have enough time, Spa closes at 9 PM. At 1902 Restaurant, we had Flambé for main course and Flambé for dessert and it was done by Salah who was very friendly and accommodating. We wanted to eat at 1902 on our 2nd night but were too tired to dress-up after our trip to Abu Simbel so we ate at the garden patio. The homemade mango sorbet here is delicious. We requested a tour of the original building and were given a tour of the Churchill Suite. I bought a few souvenirs from the hotel shop and it was delivered to our room since we were on our way to the night market – I like the service in this hotel. Will I stay here again? Most definitely! I will not bother to stay somewhere else in Aswan, I will come back in Old Cataract and make sure next time we stay at least 4 nights.

I enjoyed the hotel so much that I didn't want to leave. I just stayed there for 2 days, enjoying all the facilities. And the service was fantastic. Everybody was so nice and helpful.

« Retuning to the Old Cataract... still a Dream! »

It's like stepping off of the hurried world we live in and stepping back in time to, slower, more thoughtful days.... days of leisure!

« Beautiful »

My room was upgraded and I was able to experience a wonderful room. The only thing I wished was if I could swim in the outside pool after dark with nice lighting because it was very hot during the day. I also think that the quality of bakery items can be improved. I stayed at Sofitel Cairo before and their bread was French quality but I did not feel the same for this hotel in Aswan. The boat ride was very close to the hotel, which was convenient as well. The decor inside the room was very nice and the Karkade juice at the welcome was refreshing as well. Thank you.

We deeply enjoyed our staying (rooms, common spaces, food, service) we hope we will be back, despite the fact that getting in and out of Egypt is not very fluid

« The Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Hotel is the most relaxing, comfortable, elegant, and welcoming resort I have been to, and I go back every year. »

The staff of the Old Cataract is genuinely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about guests' needs. We stayed three nights, and we enjoyed the pool, the Terrace, and beautiful setting. We had breakfast on our balcony and watched the sun set behind Elephantine Island.

« Beautiful hotel and view »

Was lovely- food was great. Morning breakfast was very slow service and we had to catch a plane. I looked for waiters in the hotel as we were do I g on porch with others. A stray cat fouled the floor near our table with diaherea making it hard to get out of our chairs without stepping on it, but the waiters were busy cleaning up broken dishes they had dropped

« Looked after wonderfully every moment of our stay »

From check in to check out we were looked after very well. Islam and moustafa in particular made sure we had everything we needed. The staff in 1902 restaurant. Elia on the terrace was wonderful and gave me hot lemon and honey when I had a cold. The pool staff were great. The man who served us drinks in the pergola every evening was wonderful. Exceptional service everywhere.

« A wonderful stay »

What a truely wonderful hotel. Everything was just perfect and we had an amazing stay. The building is, of course, amazing. But just as amazing are the staff. There are many I would praise for their close attention and very specific help. There of particular note I must mention Islam Khaled who tracked us down in Luzor the day after we had left to let us know that my wife had forgotten her wallet in the room. He went over and beyong in solving this problem for us, and was in regular contact to consider the best way and time to get this back to us. In the end, his colleague Shawkat very kindly made the journey to Luxor to deliver this to us in person. I cannot praise these two members of your team enough - they rescued us from all kinds of stresses, and generally "Saved the Day" as the expression goes. That is not to play down the amazing team who looked after us at the pool and their many colleagues across the hotel. Huge thanks again! Best Max

« An unforgettable experience »

A wish 20 years in coming true and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere of the hotel, the finishes but most importantly the service was impeccable. A special mention to Elia Gad who went above and beyond to make our stay one in a lifetime.

« Magnificent Stay »

The hotel is well organized, clean and staff are polite and helpful. Especially Moustafa in Reception who was very helpful and a good guide for us, Mohamed, and Hussein in the Main restaurant. The only point was that the room service not responsible for beverage area "Tea and Coffee", so the room is clean however there are mugs all over the room. But it was perfect stay and of course, i will come back again.
