Best Places To Stay In Aswen


Further south, the Nile becomes increasingly picturesque around the cataracts south of Aswan, with vast, smooth 'pink' granite boulders... which really do glow in the setting sun. The river is narrower here, dotted with islands and inlets, and fringed with foliage and palms. Aswan is quiet and peaceful, out of the way of the main tourist route, and feels utterly timeless, connected by a breath of sand to ancient civilisation.  This is a lovely place for a few quiet days soaking up the atmosphere. 

Old Cataract

We have always loved the historic charm of the Old Cataract, with its unparalleled Nile-side location, elegant terraces and Agatha Christie suite, although it was, in the past, a little dusty and run down. But now, after four long years of meticulous, painstaking renovations, the Sofitel Hotel group have reopened this fabulous hotel, and it is a real treasure. The swimming pool and sun deck have been lavishly extended, and the rest of the hotel is restored to its former glory.
