This hotel seems to be bustling because of Arabian tourists; on our first day there, we were the only westerners. It has a scenic location on the river, although the river boats are noisy until the wee hours. The restaurant is quite good, and the pastry counter is excellent. We had lunch at the river-front restaurant which was very nice.

Room so-called "superior" being rather standard, no special decoration, rather neutral room in terms of size, comfort, decoration. Bathroom with no window, nor view to the bedroom. Shower.

I have stayed many a times at the Sofitel Gezirah, and have seen its slow decline over the last few years, culminating into a miserable business trip. No, the poor rating is not because they have replaced the high quality branded grooming products by poor quality locally made products (which they have), or because the coffee at breakfast has somehow...
