Stayed here for business, was a really great hotel. Friendly staff, nice breakfast looking out at the river nile. We went to the Buddha bar on Tuesday night but we were the only people there, joined by a couple of others, probably more fun when there are others there too. Pool is nice if a bit small, I swam round...

staying in Cairo for 3 nights before traveling to Luxor. We were concerned of news reports in the last few weeks of protests, but really Cairo is perfectly safe to enjoy, and virtually empty of tourists at the major sights, especially the pyramids which at this time of year are perfect to visit. The hotel is in a perfect location...

Our stay at this property was excellent. We had a high level room with great views and they opened the balcony for us. The staf were extremely friendly and assisted us in every way. We were there at the start of the recent demonstrations and we never once felt threatened of distressed. Highly recommend this property.

The Sofitel is in the middle of the Nile, or seems to, being at the tip of Zamalek island. It has lovely views from the upper floors. It's a very well appointed hotel, with all the five star amenities one would expect. Except for the gym, spa, and sauna. Which are all poor. The gym is a complete laugh. The...

Very good hotel on th Nile with excellent service, views and good restaurants. The usual great beding and large rooms and reasonable price especially with tours. Try the Kababgy mixed grill sitting by the nile with fresh baked as you need it pita bread.

During our visit Cairo was enveloped in smog laden with desert dust. The traffic was appalling, slow to grid-lock and very noisy with drivers hooting at everything whether it moved or not. It was wonderful to return to the calm of the Sofitel, gently lapped by the Nile, and with its courteous and helpful staff. This is the place to...
