Hotel has lots of beautiful facilities. Lobby and hotel restaurant are great specially the Indian restaurant and Dont forget to chill out in Lu Deck with a beautiful Nile river view. but the room does not reflect the 5 star rating at all. Don't be fooled by the fancy pictures in their website. But what really made me frustrated is... More

Positives: The Sofitel Gezirah has an absolutely amazing location and facility. The room and the pool were clean and great, and the breakfast buffet was lovely. Negatives: Service, at best, was painfully slow. We had a number of guests meet us at the various restaurants at the hotel, and each time I was actually embarrassed by the lack of service.... More

Great service, I have to give them that. You cannot check in earlier than 12pm without paying an extra $25USD. Great pool- that's about it. Hotel room smelled bad. Carpet yuck. The little extras were not there. But at the pool they would walk around and give you samples of good foods. Other than that there's nothing there.

My wife & I stayed 3 nights at this hotel while visiting Cairo recently. The staff were extremely helpful from the minute we arrived until we left. The room we stayed in on the 17th floor had great views of the Nile and the city skyline. The room was very clean and convenient.
