More than amazing . BEST service. Wonderful view Very luxurious hotel. Definitely go again
janet, us2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Full of old world charm but with all the comforts of modern living. Our suite had the most amazing view of the Nile and was beautifully decorated, with a very comfortable (and romantic) bed and spacious bathroom (loved the toiletries!). Breakfast was varied and delicious, as was lunch, but the icing on the cake (literally!) was my birthday dinner at 1902, one of the most striking restaurants I've ever seen! We will certainly be back and highly recommend Old Cataract!

Beautiful Hotel
Beautiful hotel; amazing/ generous breakfast and friendly staff- the hotel is perched on the bank of the Nile one block from the Nubian Museum. One of the nicest hotels I’ve stayed in; a true island of comfort in an otherwise stark town.

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at.
This is an amazing hotel. The place to stay

Old world glamour and huge luxurious suites
The hotel staff warmly greeted us upon our arrival and upgraded us to a huge suite fit for a sheik with 270 degree views of the Nile, expansive wardrobe areas, marble bath with freestanding soaking tub, and huge terrace. And as if the upgrade wasn’t enough, the staff sent fresh flowers, fruit platter, and pastries. During our stay, we found warm and attentive service in the restaurants, spa, and bar. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy an evening cocktail in the classic bar where Agatha Christie’s writing desk occupies a space in the corner.
