Great hotel and service. Very clean and service is fast. I have to 3 restaurants. The Moroccan and the Egyptian have a great view of the Nile. Would highly recommend it for anyone visiting here. The only minor issue I have is the Internet, it is very slow and you have to reconnect every day.

Great location, rooms with Nile view (fantastic view), all restaurants on the Nile with fantastic views, Morocco restaurant is the best, gardens are everywhere. Room Internet is very good. The only thing need to be improved is the reception staff as they are not professional in dealing with customers. Breakfast is more than excellent (all varieties in food) Room furniture... More

As an Accor member I frequently choose their brands, Sofitel is 5 star and I have never been disappointed. Every staff member went out of their way to assist with the smallest details, everyone friendly. Ate at several of the hotel restaurants, many too choose from, all were delicious, pricey but this goes with 5 stars. Rooms are a bit... More
