In 2016, I found myself again in Cairo, and there was no choice but to stay at Novotel El Borg. The hotel repeatedly excelled at all aspects of customer service, delivered in an impeccable manner. The entire hotel staff--from the front desk to the exquisite dining area--delivered a superior experience. I find with the Novotel staff not only a high... More

Very good service: excellent breakfast buffet, quick & tasty room service and very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and very clean with comfortable beds. Excellent location, yet at the same time it's a very quiet place where you can escape from Cairo's chaos. Perfect combination. Strongly recommended.

Good location and value for money, but faded to a certain degree. Roof top restaurant gets often blocked by private celebration, thus the best "treat" of the Hotel gets blocked for guests. View to the Nile panorama is good, make sure you get a room facing the river

The hotel has a fantastic Location. Its facing towards Nile River on one Side and Tahir square on another. It's very close to Egyptian Museum. Staff is friendly and rooms are clean. Fitness center is too small with few equipment and needs an up-gradation.

The hotel serves no alcohol. Anywhere - not in the restaurant. Not in the bar and not in the rooftop lounge. I was a bit shocked when I asked for the wine list at the restaurant one night and was informed about the policy. And in a French hotel at that! Of course it is noted on the web site... More

The facilities are not as good as expected from Novotel.
