The location of this hotel is the best in Cairo, as it is literally situated inside the Nile. The views from the rooms, restaurants, pool, and even the gym are spectacular. The breakfast buffet has a wide selection of Egyptian and international items. Kebabgy restaurant is highly recommended. Everyone we came across was kind, professional, and always willing to help. A special “thanks” to Mr. Saad and Mrs. Iman for bending over backwards with their hospitality. We will definitely be back very soon!

dmitryrussia2021 07/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

We traveled with family. Ussually Sofitel= high quality standarts, but not this time. We expected more than 1.5h to prepare the room check-in. I had ask for extra bed for a child 3 times - by phone, at the reception, via WhatsApp. As a result, the bed was delivered at night, when everyone was asleep. The concierge service does not work and does not provide any practical assistance, it sits behind closed doors. On the positive side - the service on the club floor is wonderful, pleasant lounge.
