Upon reaching my room I was very disappointed to... More

Back in this hotel for the third or fourth time, and after 1 year and a half, i found it always fantastic, so beautiful, elegant, the staff always kind and efficient. The position of the hotel (directly on the nile) makes this place really unique. Enjoy !!!

This time i enjoyed the spa, the morrocan restaurant and the room service breakfast. I stay with my mum 6 times a year and as usual I enjoyed my new experience at the Sofitel;ask for the non smoking floors.you will feel the difference.
