Exquisite food in superb surroundings at Sonesta C”

La Gondola restaurant and Fauchon cakes
no bidet in bathrooms

The Sonesta Hotel in Cairo is within easy reach of the airport and provides free transport between the two. Everyone there works hard for your comfort and well being and all staff are very helpful and friendly whilst providing an excellent service. Their response to any problem is quick and efficient. The pool is small but very clean and refreshing and it was never overcrowded during our stay in August. I would be happy to tell all my friends to stay at Sonesta Hotel and Casino in Cairo.

sonesta hotel cairo”

hotel is conveniently located and easy access to a nice shopping street. hotel lobby has free internet and there are plenty of nice comfortable chairs and coachs to sit on.
hotel rooms are a bit old mini bar is not very cold if you want to store some food. the bathtub plug doesnt open very well so you stand in a few inches of water when showering. old style TVs in the room

the sonesta is a well known hotel in cairo it is located in a wonderful area and also close to a nice shopping street. breakfast buffet is good and there is a wide selection for any taste. there are a few good restaurants to choose from for dinner and prices are reasonable. the rooms are large. i had a room with a double bed 2 armchairs a table and a desk and still plenty of room to walk around. the bathroom was clean and everything worked well with a new shower head. i found the hotel to be quiet i was on the third floor elevators always came quickly. i would stay here again.

Just What We Needed”

Clean Room, Swimming Pool, Excellent Food, Free internet in lobby
Not much within walking distance in terms of food or activities, couple smoked in the room next to ours and we felt like we were inhaling it.

We stayed at the Sonesta last after a whirlwind tour of Egypt. After booking budget hotels the whole time, we decided to splurge a little on this one. It was exactly what we needed. At a relatively cheap price, the Sonesta gave us a breather after so much running around. The beds are luxurious, even in the cheaper rooms, the free breakfast at the hotel is delicious, and it has a swimming pool. Most of the clientele seemed to be business men. It is close to the airport and offers a free shuttle at your request. It would be nice if there had been more street food around. Aside from that and the fact that our room was adjacent to a couple that smoked, we had a great stay. Don't miss the chocolate shop in the lobby.

Good Hotel”

- Free internet at the lobby - Nice and friendly staff
- room service very slow

as overall this hotel is good compare to others hotel i stay before in Egypt and also comment from my friend who went to other hotel before....other hotel staff is asking for tips at all time but not for sonesta, free internet at the lobby. I stayed 2 times in my visit to Egypt and the only thing i not really happy is the room service as sometime it take ages to deliver the ICE to me. i waited for almost 30min. Location wise is reasonable good but due to the traffic i found quite hard to move around. however there is hotel taxi available. Even is slightly more expensive but i think is better than taxi who ask 25 egyptian pound when the fair suppose is only 5 egyption pound and they do not want to ON the meter.

business trip to cairo”

rooms are big and spacious, furniture comfortable and free internet in lobby
furniture old style, need to pay for internet in room.

sonesta hotel has a new wing and old wing. the rooms in the old wing are much bigger but furniture is old style. rooms in the new wing are much smaller but furniture is new and modern. i prefer the older wing. breakfast has big choice of items both hot and cold. the hotel will not arrange free transfer from and to airport if you make reservations via Agoda but will charge 45 pounds to take you to airport. location of hotel is good and well situated off main road. public taxis are easy to find there so that you dont have to pay the hotel rates.

Wasn't happy this time!”

Friendly staff

I am disappointed with my stay this time. During my previous visit, I have lost the internet connection in my Room and that wasn't fixed for 2 days. When I checked in this time I specifically insisted on having the internet in my room. First day was ok, second day lost the internet so they changed my room, less than 24h later I lost the connection again in the new room!!! During my complain, they said that there was nothing they could do as it is due to the internet provider, and I say I will not stay again at the Sonesta. For business travellers who need internet access, stay away from the Sonesta!

Good value. Large room

Sonesta is a reliable brand. The hotel delivers. The room is large, the breakfast alright. We had a great stay. But it is a little of a distance from downtown. That wasn't a major problem for us because for the 2 nights we were there, we basically headed out of downtown to Saqqara & Giza. So worked perfectly for us.

- very small shower tube

In general the hotel was very nice and recommended by some friends who already stayed there. The best thing is that you do not worry about the traffic from and to the airport. I didn't try the swimming pool since the climate was too cold. The hotel is super for the value of money and I would love to stay there one more time and hopefully more than 3 nights :)

Careful with the taxi driver's tour service. ”

The taxi driver at the lobby seems like a nice guy and we book a day tour with him, turns out that's a bad idea. we book a day tour with him from the hotel to Giza Pyramid. he mandatory us to stop and go to a few shops, expensive restaurant. and without knowing the standard price for the Gize ticket and horse/camel riding, we got ripoff pretty well. that was our 2nd day in Egypt, and we learn our lesson for the rest of the trip.
