Newly renovated, the hotel is centrally located at the tip of the island, with easy access everywhere. Rooms are modern, clean and airy, with breathtaking views. The hotel has a number of good restaurants and a popular gorgoeuos bar on the nile. The hotel staff is friendly and efficient: I very much enjoyed staying at the Sofitel in Cairo and will return in future trips to Cairo.

My husband & I stayed at the Sofitel Cairo El Gezirah as part of a 19 day tour with Top Tours Australia. It was a beautiful, luxurious hotel with a superb, comfortable bed and lovely modern furnishings. Generous toiletries in the room with complimentary water the first day were lovely touches. Free wi-fi in the room was great too. The first night we were there (May 27th, 2011) 8th floor was invaded by soccer fans and was quite noisy. So managament at our request moved us to the 21st floor in a beautiful room, this was handled extremely satisfactorily and very efficiently.
The wonderful variety of restaurants and food at the hotel was excellent. Beautiful surrounds of the hotel make it a pleasure to have any meal there. Staff are very courteous and all requests are very well dealt with.
The hotel itself is quite impressive, the lobby is just beautiful to relax in, as is the pool right on the Nile.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. It is definitely five star luxury. We were fortunate to stay there again at the end of our tour and it was wonderful and relaxing before our long flight home.

Thankyou to all staff for making our stay at the hotel a lovely experience. Can't wait to visit Cairo again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floors, great views
