My father and I stayed at the Sofitel for 4 nights. Its a beautiful hotel, with views all over the city. I loved the gym - great to have so much equipment! The spa and infinity pool were a great place to unwind after a busy day of touring. The breakfast buffet and Egyptian restaurant were both very good. The...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 February 2017

Stayed at the Sofitel for 4 nights. 5 star international standards. Spa facilities, casino, & room service all top shelf. Multiple restaurants to choose from on site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will look for Sofitel hotels on future vacations.

in the heart of Cairo, it is very conveniently suited for all your business and personal needs. the views are excellent from nearly all the rooms in the hotel. infinity pool and excellent spa facilities. the food options are endless and after tasting nearly all of them, it is nearly imposiible to find something you don't like.

very friendly staff, good restaurants and good service. all restaurants have nice Nile river view; I recommend to try all restaurants before you go out and explore :) and you'll be lucky if your room is on the Nile river full view.

I was there for the last couple of days. Interiors need an overhaul, found the rooms small and bathroom / toilet shabby. Can't comment on service levels much, however found the reception team pretty welcoming. Location was good.

View, Location and Food are Amazing; but in regard to room cleanness its very poor and the housekeeping is even worse. ATMs at the hotel were not working and the hotel was not providing any alternative solution.

We were an America couple that traveled to Egypt the second week in March. We chose Sofitel for its reviews and its strategic place along the Nile! We have no complaints about the property itself other than the kettle didn't work in our room. (Not the end of the world as we got coffee downstairs for breakfast - but still...

Large spotless room with a balcony and incredible view of the Nile. The breakfast bar was extensive and dinner in the restaurant was tasty and inexpensive. The staff were friendly, professional and attentive. I really enjoyed my stay.
