Situated at the southern tip of an island in the Nile, it means that most (if not all?) rooms have a direct view of the river. It doesn't really matter anyway, because you can sit and watch the Nile from almost everywhere on the hotel area. Standard rooms are nice - clean and spacey - and includes a minibar and...

The hotel is really good with all amenities i.e. pool, spa, gym, restaurants etc. Only flaw was a couple of things. I felt was expensive the size of the rooms in comparison to other hotels etc. We had a leaking toilet on day one of our 3 day stay and was not resolved until we left. When we asked for...

This was not my first time in Cairo, but my first staying in a luxury hotel there. Cairo is crazy and people tend to love it or hate it (I definitely belong to the former camp!). I wanted to show my husband around the city and the Sofitel's location is perfect for sight-seeing; amazing views of the Nile and on...

Five star hotel on merit with great front desk staff, very clean rooms with suitable aeration. The hotel is located on one side at the shores of the Nile river, and given rooms on that side, it provides a great view. Generally speaking, Sofitel gives you a homely experience away from home.
