Central & great view of the River Nile!!

Fantastic overall - they are hungry for tourist. Great help at the concierge booking trips, except my phone that they set up - never worked. I paid for sim & activation for no reason! Overall had a great stay there!!

Dear Valued Guest, It was our pleasure having the chance to have you with us. I am extremely sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations for this stay, please accept my sincerest apologist. It is indeed a concern that you feel the services offered was not up to the expected fine standards for the Restaurant Services; we will of course take this very seriously and rectify any unusual shortfalls that may have occurred during your stay. We will of course pass your comments to the Casino Management, as the hotel’s Casino is not managed by Sofitel, as they have a different management company. Let me seize this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to our attention, as honest opinion and constructive criticism is the only way that would enable us to improve and meet our guests expectations. Sincerely Yours, Iman El Gabaly Quality Manager

Nice place but busy area

Posted Jan 6, 2015
The hotel room is good. Nice view. Clean room. Too pricy for old hotel. There is no alarm in the room, and no USB socket. Two things i hate about this hotel: -No gate man to carry the bags -Late in answering the phone and bring my Request.

Great view, business hotel

Posted Dec 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
very safe hotel with excellent services, but note that you are in a gated area and can only leave with pre arranged taxis. The hotel is safe but Cairo in general is a bit crazy, but crazy fun

편안하고 즐거운 호텔

Posted Dec 17, 2014 on Hotels.com
이집트 출장으로 6일동안 머무르게 되었는데, 청소상태도 매우 양호했고, 노트북만 가져가면 인터넷도 가능하고, 객실내에서는 와이파이도 이용할 수 있었습니다. 수영장에서 수영도 즐길 수 있었음. (기온이 약간 쌀쌀한 날에도 물을 덥혀놔서 물속에선 추운줄 몰랐음) 생수가 매일 0.7리터 짜리 두개만 제공되는게 약간 불만이긴 했지만 다시 가더라도 이 호텔을 꼭 찾아갈 것 같네요.

Beste Lage in der Innenstadt

Posted Dec 11, 2014
Pros: Die Aussicht vom Zimmer (21. Etage) aus (an Tagen mit wenig Smog bis zu den Pyramiden) und der Poolbereich.
Cons: Trotz gut isolierter Fenster sind die Zimmer nicht 100 % ruhig - kein Wunder in einer der wahrscheinlich lautesten Städte der Welt!
Location: Zentrale Lage in Kairo, u.a. sind das ägyptische Museum und der Cairo Tower zu Fuß erreichbar.
Das Hotel bietet ein elegantes Ambiente, komfortable Zimmer und einen wunderschönen Außenbereich mit Pool und Sitzgelegenheiten direkt am Nil - in dieser Form in Kairo kaum ein zweites Mal zu finden. Auch der Spa-Bereich (nicht selbst genutzt) macht einen sehr guten Eindruck. Die Mitarbeiter haben angenehme Umgangsformen, sind freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Frühstücksbuffet ist so reichhaltig wie von einem Hotel dieser Klasse zu erwarten und kann, sofern ein Tisch frei ist, auf der Außenterrasse mit Nilblick eingenommen werden - herrlich! WLAN ist in den Zimmern und den anderen Bereichen ohne Zusatzkosten verfügbar, die Geschwindigkeit war ok.
