All the staff are very friendly, courteous and well trained and the rooms extremely comfortable and clean. The situation...

This hotel was one of the hightlights of our cruise from Dubai to Barcelona in April 2013. We had booked an Club Floor Room. The Lounge Staff did an excellent job and provided good service in the Lounge We would like to recommend the Arabian Resaurant. Fantastic food and service.

I stayed here for a week and enjoyed my stay. My room was a decent size, clean and well furnished. The view from the window was stunning. The hotel itself has many facilities, and those which I used were all kept in very good condition, and were clean. It did feel first class. The breakfast buffet is one of the...

I loved this hotel, excellent location and wonderful views, I was upgraded to a better room without asking, and I was escorted to my room by a very professional and smiling employee.

If you want to get a deal in post-revolution Cairo, look elsewhere. This hotel is a far cry from a "good deal", but it's also one of the nicest in the city. I would have given it 5 stars had it not been for the price, which doesn't reflect the reality on the ground in Egypt Located in the heart...

Location: Wonderful, just in the middle of Cairo (you could walk to the egyptian museum) directly located at the nile and so far away from any major road (actually in something like a sports park) you hardly hear any traffic noises. There can hardly be a more quieter place in Cairo. Just 20-40 minutes from the airport and about 1...

Sofital rises 27 stories on the banks of the Nile. Our 25th floor room gave breathtaking views of the surrounding city but standing outside on the small balcony was a vertiginous experience!
