The hotel is very nicely located. Awesome view of the Nile, particularly on floors above the 8th. Breakfast is never-ending, from salty to sweet, including sparkling wine and salmon. Delightful French restaurant. Great check-in experience.
Shame for the random encounters of sex

All these 3 points make the Sofitel to one of the best places at Cairo. My friends had Nile View with view to the pyramids and we loo at them at sunset. It was so amazing like one of the best breakfast which we ever had in a hotel.

After searching around the internet (including this site) and talking with others, I settled on the Sofitel as the right destination.

I didn’t regret the choice. 😊
The hotel staff was great, the rooms were good considering the age, and the views from the dining, bars and pool

We are going to be staying here in January 2019. We got a package that includes breakfast for the three of us. Is it a buffet style breakfast?
It is and with a wide choice!

Hi I have a question? Its is ok to go two women? My sister and Me will be safe visit Egypt? Do we have to dress in a certain way ?We would like to hire the tours from the hotel only. How we can get from the airport to the hotel? It is safe take a taxi again two females. Thanks in advance!
Sorry for the delay, I only just saw this question. I found Egypt safe, I think dressing usual but a little conservative is respectful to the culture. I traveled with my friend and our husbands so can’t comment on women traveling alone in Egypt- I have not had that experience. I had pre arranged tours and transport- very convenient, didn’t use the taxis there. Interesting country and I found everyone welcoming. Booking tours and transport ahead of time ensures you won’t be ‘stuck’ and won’t miss out on all the amazing sights.
