The stay was pleasant though not great. The reception staff took a long time to check us in! Good in the Arabic and Indian restaurants was very good. Most of the staff did not understand English. Rooms were old but comfortable.

From the lobby where we are always personally welcomed by all, till reaching the suite, you feel you are transprted to a truly luxury experience. The room is always ready with all the preferences you would have conveyed on previous stays. Le Deck is a truly different experience with a fusion of French-Japanese cuisine and the unique Meduse shisha. As...

Nice view, clean room, good restaurant and luxury hotel. Checkin online to avoid long process your room ready if you do this online. One thing about location the front gate isn't near main street like other hotels so the car you wait must check by security guy every time but it's not a problem.

The Sofitel El Gezeira is my favourite hotel in Cairo and I stay there whenever I am visiting Cairo.

Was here for a brief stay during a project mission. After a day out in the hot, dusty, smelly city, this hotel offered the safety and calm that I needed. Staff were extremely friendly although sometimes struggling with English. The food was OK, although I did not really have time to enjoy much of it nor the other facilities.

The restaurants are also the best. There is kebabi ( which is well known in Cairo and hard to find a table) Le deck (fusion new...
