Excellent location and view of Cairo”

The hotel has a perfect location to discover Cairo and its hightlight such as the Egyptian Museum. The location on the edge of the Nile island of Zamelik makes it easily accessible. The hotel is well protected inside and through its surrounding park and the Sporting club. Choose a Club room or a room on the high level such as the 16 floor where you find the Club lounge serving free breakfast, snacks and drinks. The view of the Nilefrom there is breathtaking namely on sunrise and sunset. Th staff of the reception and in the club loung was very polite and curtious.

Super!”

great view, clean room, nice food

Due to the low tourist season, I was arranged to a room facing Nile on a higher floor. The view is increadible over the Nile. Room is very clea and breakfast is great. Having food beside river Nile is one of the biggest things you can ask for in Cairo. The only downturn but very much expected is the city noise. It locates in a busy area and traffic noise can still be heard on a high floor.

with a good view of nile in the night
the buddha bar is a little bit expensive

i have stayed in the sofitel in shanghai, and i really don't expect the cario sofitel to be with such nice lobby, terrace bar and especially the swimming pool, although i don;t get the chance to try. but i am sure that swimming with the nile view is enjoyable. the location of the sofitel is nice except the entracne area which appear to be in chaos, but of course it's not problem or responbility of the hotel, but i do suggest sofitel could coordinate with the authority.

Can't compare with any other Sofitel I have stayed in...great restaurants and bars; rooms clean, and service friendly and helpful. I stay in Cairo once a month on average and would rate this in the same category as Conrad Hotel, both of which are streets ahead of any other hotels I have stayed in in the past. A definite recommendation!

Highly recommended”

Excellent hotel in a lovely setting right on the Nile - beautiful views - we could see the pyramids in the distance from our bed! Many of the restaurants, bars and the pool are right on the river's edge. Breakfast was the best we had in all our travels in Egypt. The suite was very spacious and comfortable with top quality amenities and two balconies overlooking the river. The club lounge was a great facility with drinks and snacks throughout the day and lovely views. The staff were always extremely courteous, friendly and helpful and even arranged a very early check on our first morning due to our very early arrival.

Good Hotel... Could Be Better ”

Location, Clean & Spacious Room

Being a regular visitor to Cairo for work purposes, i am very used to the Egyptian way that 5mins doesnt mean 5mins and its not my problem, its his problem (anyone regular to Egypt will understand what i mean). That aside, the hotel was clean and offered enough facilities for a short stay. The rooms were clean and spacious offering fantastic views up & down the Nile. Staff were generally helpful and pleasent although with a bit more effort (and training), im sure the service could improve considerably. Would stay again.

The best Nile Hotel”

Location on the Nile, amazing views

My room on the 21st floor had an amazing view over the Nile. Quite a good room size, comfortable bed, bathtab. Good breakfast with big variety, a few tables outside right on the Nile. 2 minus points: Cleaning (just like everywhere in Egypt) and the noise from the roads that could be heard from my room. Ok value for money.
