#15 of 239 in Cairo
On the southern tip of Gezirah Island, the hotel is a corner of paradise in central Cairo, minutes from Cairo’s business districts. Discover a haven of peace during a vacation in Egypt, and a comfortable base to rest after a successful day of business. Relax by the pool, pamper yourself in Sofitel SPA, wine and dine in our international restaurants and bars. Surrender to luxury and come for a day, a weekend, a week…or more. A stroll along the hotel’s lush riverside promenade takes you to a host of acclaimed restaurants and bars. You can take your time, enjoying the cool shade of exotic palms and breathing in the scent of hibiscus. You’ll hear the gentle sound of water lapping as you rest on a Nile-side terrace with a cool drink, and dine on international cuisine. It’s especially beautiful at dusk, when the sun sets over Cairo’s skyline and vibrant nightlife. Escape the city for a day at our secluded Cairo hotel, which feels like an exclusive Egyptian resort set in lush gardens. Take advantage of Sofitel SPA and Sofitel FIT, float in an infinity pool overlooking the Nile, unwind in a bubbling whirlpool bath… whatever you desire.

Perfectly located in Zamalek Jezira with a full panoramic view, feeling like nothing to miss. Food @ highly appreciated Elkababji is a must, specially when it comes to Egyptian kitchen and grills. The Terrace on the Nile was so good at Sunset. Breakfast experience full and diversified. The executive lounge is the right place for your meetings. Spot cleanliness and hygiene. Sure will come back again...

It was my first trip to Cairo and my first stay the Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah. All I can say is wow. What a great and memorable experience from start to finish. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff is incredibly welcoming, polite, and hospitable. During my stay, the concierge Tarek and Hafez coordinated for me a private tour of the Pyramids. They not only ensured that the guide and driver were on time, but also that they were well educated in the history and culture of Egypt. My tour guide for the day was Saeed who had tremendous knowledge all things Egyptian. He was well spoken and easy to communicate with during our journey together. I was a very inquisitive guest, and he was able to provide a very thorough explanation for all of my questions. I honestly felt very fortunate to have such a well educated tour guide and truly appreciate his time and consideration. If you are in need of a great guide and wonderful experience, just ask Tarek and Hafez at concierge for a tour with Saeed and they will take care of everything. When I returned back to the hotel they were there to greet me and asked how the tour went... my response... absolutely perfect! The hotel has great amenities such as a spa, 3 restaurants and a casino. I managed to make a reservation for the spa each night of my stay. The staff there were just as accommodating which made for a perfect way to end a long day. I would highly recommend Kababgy restaurant. The service was absolutely spot on and probably the best I have ever had. Made me feel like royalty. The food was just as good as the service. Wish we had a place like this near us. Overall, I couldn't recommend Sofitel highly enough. Excellent customer service and accommodations! I look forward to the day I can return to Cairo. Thanks for making my stay so memorable.
