Great location, staff very helpful, rooms very clean, good bathroom and shower
cigarette smoking allowed in lobby and restaurant of hotel

The location of the hotel is great, near all the major hotels on Zamalek Island. Plenty of taxis out front as well. The hotel is extremely clean and comfortable. Nice amenities and the bathroom/shower were great. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We arrived early in the morning before a room was available. They searched the hotel until they found one for us. They even found us a non-smoking room. Excellent stay! Only bad part of hotel - smoking is allowed in the lobby and the restauarant. There is nothing more annoying than trying to check out of the hotel or eat your morning breakfast with cigarette smoke blowing in your face. Yuck!

Price, Location, Room and bathroom size, service
massage rooms, breakfast quality, lack of sauna and hammam

Ideal solution for a stay in Cairo. Zamalek is a quieter area( compared to others) I was upgraded to Nile View to accomodate my requests for smoking & king bed. Such a gorgeous view!! For the standards this hotel is much cheaper compared to the neighbouring hotels where for an extra star you have to pay more. Rooms decor is a bit "ikea" for my taste but it's all clean and comfortable. I found incredibly funny the size of the bedside table.. enough room for a lipstick All the hotel workers are extremely nice and friendly! Good quality room service but breakfast quality is a bit low.

good location, neat and clean, friendly staffs

It was neat and clean hotel. The room itself is not that big, and the bathroom is also quite small. But it was well-maintained, clean, and neat. Especially, it has a great view in a room and the rooftop cafe. On the rooftop cafe, you can look down the panorama view of Nile. It is very close to Zamalek, walkable distance, 10-15 minutes. (But since there's no proper pedestrian road, it might be better to take a cap.) The staffs were friendly, too.

Good Location”

Good Location Large Room Clean free internet (20mins)
Staff not particularrly helpfull on arrival

I was prepared for a less than ideal stay in Cairo after reading numerous reviews of general conditions. When we arrived to be told that they wouldn't change our booking from 4 nights to 3 (train availability returning for our flight back from Alexandria meant we couldn't stay last night) then problems with credit cards being blocked it looked like my thoughts were confirmed. The hotel room however was spacious & clean & very quiet at night considering it's in central Cairo. The location beside the Opera Metro station is also a bonus. Free internet (although only for 20 minutes at a time) was also handy. Overall I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel.

Nice view

It's was a great stay there but the traffic was chaotic all over Cairo. There's is a travel agent tour around Cairo but more expensive than usual price. There is a cafe on the rooftop which offer great view of the surrounding and great cool wind at night. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is an ATM machine located at the hotel lobby. Location opposite the Nile river, which offer nice view and a boat ride too.

Would stay there again”

Good value Good location Nice but small pool - sunny for most of the day Good service/ staff apart from reception
No alcohol Service at reception slow

Checking in or dealing with reception was slow. Apart from this the staff were very friendly and helpful - especially the pool staff. The pool is small but it's position means the pool area is sunny for most of the day. The rooms had a nice neutral decor and were cleaned everyday. No alcohol is served in the hotel, but the Sofitel hotel which does is a 5 min walk away with a really nice outdoor area surrounded by the Nile (obviously much more expensive to stay there). It's in a really good location as it is close to the main attractions eg. the Museum of Antiqities and being on the island means it's not as noisy or crowded and it's a bit greener. Overall I felt this was the best hotel available in this price range and would stay there again.

Stay in Cairo”

- very nice modern hotel, not too fancy but well designed and comfortable - great public reception space - good views - great location of hotel
- very substandard food at the breakfast buffet - paid too much for buffet - internet access was expensive and only available by the hour (24h purchase option not available at the time I needed) - bar (alcoholic drinks) unavailable

Overall, I had a very good experience and will consider returning to Novotel in future rips to Cairo. Very much liked the modern but not too flashy design of the hotel and its public spaces. The location is excellent. Only the breakfast buffet was a huge disappointment... Another improvement would be to have an alcoholic bar...

Excellent location
Very expensive internet and travel agency fares

I'm overall OK with my stay at Novotel El Borg but wasn't really impressed. Staff wasn't great (I had to bring my own luggage after my check out despite I asked for it several times) and food at the French restaurant wasn't great. Travel agency was useful although was very expensive and facilities are just OK. In Europe this hotel would be no more then a 3 star hotel although the location is great, just close to the Egyptian museum and right to the Nile.

Paid $138 USD per night after taxes, which I think is steep for what you get. Notes: 1) Free upgrade to the junior suite with two bathrooms was nice! 2) ATM/money exchange in the lobby was out of order our entire stay 3) You'll want to wipe each surface with a Clorox wipe before touching them 4) Really enjoyed the location in Zamalek even though a taxi seemed necessary to get anywhere of interest 5) Booked a "tour" of Saqqara and Giza for $75 USD, but this is actually just a private driver that takes you to places where he (and possibly the hotel too) will get commission on your purchases. We met our "guide" inside a papyrus shop on our way to Giza after visiting Saqqara. The "guide" gave us 15 minutes of information about the temples - at the end of which we were told she would not be accompanying us. Completely useless. Then we had to endure pressure to buy papyrus and leave a handwritten review of the shop (of the tour?) in a notebook. Skip this!

Novotel Cairo El Borg”

Location is ideal, as it is near the city center.
Noisy environment and service level of the reception is not very good.

Novotel Cairo El Borg is an ideal place to stay if you wish to visit the Nile River and shopping. But you would have to bear the noise level of the surrounding. There are people performing downstairs and on top of that you could see fireworks during midnight. The room is cosy to stay in, and the bed was comfortable. The facilities in the room wasn't so good, as the lights inside the room were faulty. The bathroom is great, there are hairdryer and heater available. But unfortunately there are no toothbrush and toothpaste available, luckily I brought my own, else I would not be able to brush my teeth.

Perfect location, but...”

The hotel is OK, the best location you can find in Cairo for that price. But the Nile view comes with so much noise that you should be prepared to stay awake all night. The windows are not insulated enough so the music from the cruise boats becomes a nightmare after a while.
