Lovely hotel
Beautiful hotel with excellent service. Nothing too much trouble. Friendly, yet professional. Free wifi was a reasonable speed, but not available by the pool. We would definitely stay again.

A wonderful hotel but...
The hotel itself is magnificent, a true legend. I stayed in better hotels in terms of physical qualities and modern facilities, but this one is unique. Worth the money to stay there. The only issue I want to raise is that the hotel employees could be sensed to have a subtle "French" attitude. The management certainly needs to be careful with this. I noticed that the hotel was less than half full and very few non- Europian guests there.

Iconic hotel
The Cataract is an iconic hotel in every sense of the word ! We stayed in the newer wing , beds very narrow & hard . Restaurants are great as long as you don't order from the menu . The chefs will cook anything you ask for and it's delicious ! The menu is uninteresting and unappetising!

Beautiful Nile view. Excellent staff.
Visited in July (off season) so very quiet. But the hotel staff are amazing: friendly, helpful, and thoughtful. Excellent hotel grounds with nice pool overlooking the Nile.
