3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

spent three nights in this hotel in May in a riverside room. Friendly staff that made the experience a little bit better. Room was very spacious and clean, but the noise coming from the road was absolutely diabolical. Our double glazing window was very dated and obviously sound-leaky, to the point we could not fall asleep until 4 in the... More

The hotel is clean and comfortable with a pleasant swimming pool and roof top bar with views of the Nile. The service was generally good and value was reasonable. If you enjoy a cold beer or something stronger then note that there is no alcohol served in any of the hotel bars or restaurants, which is unusual for an international... More

I spent two nights with my wife in a city-view room. The view was not bad and not noisy like the river-side. So I advise the river-view rooms only in higher floors (6th or 7th). In general the room is modern and clean but we had 2 main issues. First, we had a connection door to the next room which... More

I stayed here 2 nights in June 2014. Location is excellent and very central to the main tourist area of Cairo. I had a room with a beautiful view overlooking the Nile. Room was of a typical Novotel standard. Above all the hotel was excellent value for money and i would stay again when next in Cairo.

Spent 5 days here on business. I have stayed in horrific hotels in Cairo for similar money, so Novotel El Borg was very refreshing. Rooms are modern, straightforward, clean and well-equipped. I had an excellent view across the Nile. Only issue was noisy party boats with loud music late into night. Breakfast is varied and good quality, and they have... More

the hotel is small but it has a good view over the Nile, rooms are clean, breakfast is poor, i didn't try the pool as we were in winter but it's also small. It's a good value for money if you're looking for a hotel in Al Borg area.
