Spent two night here, we always choose Sofitel in Cairo. Everything had been renovated, the room was lovely, breakfast superb and the staff excellent. Ate at the Moroccan restaurant where the food was very tasty. We'll b back whenever in Cairo.

A lovely 5-star hotel by the Nile side near Cairo centre. The view is fabulous. The location is excellent and central. The food was found very good. The staff were found friendly. One can walk between the hotel and Tahrir square in the very centre of Cairo by just crossing the "Kasr ElNeel" bridge.

If you rate the hotel by GCC standards, its barely 4 star. The best thing about the hotel is the breakfast, spread was huge and nice, and if...

To start the location is AMAZING, we booked two luxury club rooms and I have to say there was nothing luxurious about them. While good in size the room was drab, worn down and in need of serious renovation. The bathroom was tiny but the rain shower superb with great water pressure. Breakfast in the club lounge was superb. Great...

A very nice hotel in a very convenient location. The morning view of the Nile was awesome. The staff was superb and food was very good. I especially loved the breakfast buffet. And lunch on the terrace by the Nile was something very special.
