Dear Sofitel El- Guizrah,
We had an amazing trip to Egypt in June 2013. We stayed at the Sofitel Cairo El-Guizrah Club floor rooms. This hotel is amazing and staff could not do enough for us on our stay.
This is a First class Hotel in Cairo beautiful and amazing is all we can say. The Nile view from our room was breathtaking the Pyramids of Giza by day and especially at night the Nile came to life with music and dancing.
The boats going up the Nile in the evening dazzled us below with their flashing colors and music. Our room was large extremely comfortable, we had everything we needed any enquires we had were attended to without hesitation from any of the staff and management.
We would recommend this hotel without hesitation. Thank you Sofitel El Gezirah Staff for making our trip to Cairo so pleasurable we will be back one day and know for sure where we will be staying.
Kindest regards,
Gordon & Jean Hay

It was one of the best places i visited in Cairo, the view on the nile from all the sides the restaurants from different cultures the piano bar, the rooms everything is perfect and the service provided by a friendly staff
the only negative thing is that the hotel is far from the streets so. in case you need a taxi you have to walk 15 minutes and the taxi drivers in the hotel are not reasonable
i highly recommend sofitel

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, but preferably to take a room on the highest floors for two reasons: better...

I recently stayed here on a work trip for 3 nights in early June. The hotel is in a great location in central Cairo, close walking distance to Cairo Tower, the Egyptian Museum and Tahir Square, with the River Nile right next to the hotel.

I stayed in an Executive room which offered great Nile views over this massive city. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bathroom was large, very clean and pleasent to use.

The pool area, especially the Infinity part, was really nice and had great views of the Nile close by. The only downside was that it was slightly complicated to get to (i.e going to level two, walking through the spa and then back down to level one to access the pool.

The food at the hotel was really nice, although there wasn't a great deal of choice at times, but everything I had to eat was really tasty and enjoyable.

The casino was a nice cheap place to drink however the Buddha Bar is a lot nicer, although the prices reflect that, it is a lot nicer experience. The bar offers night views of the Nile, with all its twinkling lights and is quite special.

Overall this is a superb hotel. It is in a great location, close to most of the major sights of Cairo, the staff were very helpful and friendly and the decor and facilities were top notch. I would'nt hesitate in recommending this hotel to others, and if all other Sofitels are like this, then I would be sure to bear them in mind in future destinations.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms offer great views of the Nile.

We had our wedding at the Sofitel and have to say that we absolutely loved the place! Nour at Reception, Mohamed in the breakfast restaurant and Kareem (Events manager) are fantastic and all made our stay enjoyable and easy!

We stayed on floors 10 and the 23 and both had great views, wifi in room is great and the swimming pool area was comfortable and served tasty food!

The breakfast was amazing, smoothies, cold and hot meats, Omelettes, fruit, cereal and even skimmed milk! Sitting outside with views of the Nile was also really nice and the grounds surrounding the hotel are really well maintained. Try a 6am walk and you won't regret it.

I was slightly worried travelling to Cairo with all the protests but want to reassure anyone that it is perfectly safe. Great security to get into the hotel and I even walked the streets at day and night and felt fine. Would recommend the Sofitel above the Four Seasons and Kempinsky and can't wait to go back there. Thanks to everyone who made our wedding special! See you next year inshallah.
