The iconic 5-star Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah hotel towers the Nile in Zamalek, Downtown Cairo. A favoured venue for important business events and a prime location for tourism, the hotel offers the ultimate in classic French hospitality, dazzling contemporary décor, and state-of-the-art meeting facilities for up to 500 attendees. Just a few steps away lies Cairo's upscale business district on quiet El Gezirah island, and it's only minutes to the centre of Cairo, via the Metro at our doorstep.
Excellent Hotel I can really recommend
Fantastic view and clean accommodation.
A bit of a walk to the city centre (Tahrir Sq.). Better to catch taxis on the road though (taxis waiting in front of the hotel will rip you off).
view and location
Quality of some staff , hard to get a taxi, value for money
many restaurants and nice view
very long check in and check out., Price paid is 6% more than booking price., Hotel staff and security asking for tips for doing nothing., must pay $10 to get in the sauna.
The view, nice territory, nice outdoor pool. Quite good for Cairo.
We ordered a breakfast with the room service, we were told that the breakfast will arrive in 10-15 min. Finally it took about 1 hour and they didn't bring coffee, saying that coffee machine is broken...The price for the breakfast is around 20 euros.
the place of the hotel
Luxurious, clean, comfortable, attentive staff, excellent restaurants and breakfast. Fabulous view from rooms. A little out of the way - taxis or hotel limousine essential to get anywhere. Very comfortable way to prepare for long plane trip.
It was very busy when we arrived to check in and we had to wait 20 minutes to be assisted at reception.
How welcoming the staff were and the lobby
I expected more clean there was some dust on the book and around the sink wasn't clean which I found it mistreating your guest nicely there small detail should be clean because it matter to some people
It's view and closeness to the Nial without any seperation ,presence of Alkapapgy one of best resturence .
no gift or small shoping place
Excellent service from start to finish. Great rooms and lovely view over the Nile.
