A lot of good and nice things in this hotel: the swimming pool, the views on the Nile and the city, the outside area close to the river, where it's possible to have drinks at night and breakfast in the morning. A few members of the staff were really kind and professional and notably Michael and Marina at the reception...

Situated at the southern tip of an island in the Nile, it means that most (if not all?) rooms have a direct view of the river. It doesn't really matter anyway, because you can sit and watch the Nile from almost everywhere on the hotel area. Standard rooms are nice - clean and spacey - and includes a minibar and...

When you haven't been to Egypt or better Cairo before you will notice: poverty, no real Tourist area (nice places, walking areas, shops or malls, cafés, restaurants, souvenir shops...) and massive heavy traffic: cars and noise everywhere. Taxis are very cheap, use them, a trip from the airport to the Sofitel hotel costs about 150 EGP ( 7,50 €). At...

Sofitel El Gezirah is situated on an Island in the Nile very central in Cairo near the Cairo opera and the Cairo tower. The Hotel has a Nile promenade where you walk with a garden, the pool and some restaurants on one side and the Nile on the other. Absolutely amazing situation! The building is round meaning that you can...

Every time I stay at the Sofitel Hotel, I feel something beautiful, old and new, as usual I stayed at the hotel that my second home passed through during my visit to Cairo last week. What surprises you is that all employees surround you with love and respect. Mr. Saad and Mrs. Samia in the relations receive you as if...

It was good and confortable stay as for business trip but the food wasn't as expected. Breakfast buffet was ok but as for lunch or dinner awful. Even the open seafood it was worst, fish not fresh and there was no varity of options. Rooms are good

Lately, I have spent a small vacation in Sofitel Gezira Cairo, and it was one of the best, the hotel was amazing, the staff remarkable, their attention to the customers, their constant efforts to satisfy them are really outstanding.
