Cairo, Egypt
Reviewed 9 December 2013

I'd like to commend some of the hotel's staff for their attention to detail and their friendly approach in dealing with guests. Sometimes the waiters are hard to find in certain areas, but one bright spot is Cafe Sud, where the waiters are always attentive to guests' demands.

The View of the Nile and the city from the higher floors was breath taking, the staff members were super friendly and helpful, and the restaurants by the Nile were amazing. The only couple of things I didn't like though were the towels being a bit worn off, and the tv was small and old. I haven't enjoyed a stay...

The location is the top in Cairo, in the south point of Zamalek island. The inner garden, with restaurants and bars, is really on the Nile. The staff is polite, very kind, and professional. The structure is luxury, and rooms are very clean and comfortable, with king bed size, free wi-fi and flat HD TV. The only negative point is...

For location, style, facilities and service this beats them all. Unlike almost all the other top hotels the Sofitel is not separated from the river by a road. Located on the southern tip of Zamalek (island) it draws the full benefit of its riverside location and views, with a string of its own restaurants and bars along its extensive waterfront....
