This hotel was refurbished recently and is now a truly elegant optionin Cairo. The rooms are nice appointed but it is the public spaces that deliver the WOW factor. The floral displays throughout the publice areas are changed every other day and worth the price of a stay. There are several very good restaurant choices for those intimidated by the...

Cairo can be an overwhelming city and the Sofitel is really a haven of tranquility. Its location in the middle of the Nile is unmatched, especially if you have a Nile view room. Being a platinum member, I was upgraded to a deluxe room. All the front desk staff I dealt with were really friendly. There were a few minor...
