    Great hotel in the heart of the city
    We had a fabulous stay at Sofitel last week in Cairo. The hotel is located close to everything you want to see in the city (Citadel, markets, pyramids etc) but also far enough away that you're not in the middle of the chaos in the city. The hotel has several restaurants to choose from offering many different cuisines, the pool also offers a perfect spot to cool off and relax after a busy day in the city. Hotel staff were always on hand to help with anything from room service to booking tours, cars and events. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    Enjoyed the Stay
    Great view of the Nile River from almost all rooms in the property and unbeatable from the surrounding hotels. The rooms furniture and finishing level is not bad but not up to the a level of 5 star hotel as they are somehow old and consumed. The breakfast is served at Casa Mia Restaurant with marvelous view and sitting by the Nile. The food is also great with many varieties and outstanding service. The room rate is little high but won’t hesitate to stay at this hotel in the future.

    Fair 4.0
    The hotel is an esteemed property but the staff Is not up to the level of a five star hotel and the pool area is very small and cramped taking into consideration that the hotel wasn’t even half full as per the management, we couldn’t find a place to sit by the pool most of our stay it was really disappointing.

    Good 6.0
    Not sure why this hotel is advertised as a 5 star hotel. It definitely is not. There is lots of room for improvement, starting with the service at the reception. If I visit Cairo again? I would not stay here. The only redeeming factor is the Egyptian restaurant on the property.

    the location of the hotel was amazing but it was very noisy even though we were at the 14th floor but there was lots of noise you could hear from the rooms next door.
