Sofitel Legend Old Cataract

About Sofitel Legend Old Cataract

Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Set on the Nile River banks in the Nubian Desert, this 5-star hotel in Aswan is near Elephantine Island and the Khnum Temple.

The Aswan Museum, Tombs of Amarna, and Tombs of Nobles are in a walking distance to the hotel. Aswan city centre is a pleasant stroll. From Aswan airport, around 25 minutes away, follow signs for Aswan city, then head towards the hotel district. The hotel is located on the right beside the Ferial Gardens and Nile.

Travel back in time to a more elegant era, as you enter a world of Moorish domes, Byzantine arches and exquisite Persian carpets. Under crimson chandeliers, you immerse yourself in an opulent mélange of French and Arabian styles.

Gliding across polished marble floors under grand arcades, your gaze is drawn to photographs of former guests – Agatha Christie, Winston Churchill and Lady Diana. This legendary retreat in the heart of Aswan has hosted the Haut monde for over a century.

As the sun falls on an amber desert, you repose on the terrace with a cooling glass of hibiscus tea and play your part in a tale that began in 1899 of a hotel par excellence. The sight of Elephantine Island transports you to the time of pharaohs.
