The public areas of this hotel and it's relatively peaceful location make it special, and were so much more than we expected. We really enjoyed sitting by the Nile with a drink at dusk - the Sofitel has a very chilled out feel, and the staff were incredibly attentive and helpful - we felt very pampered. The rooms are fine but not exceptionally luxurious, so some might be disappointed at not having a 5 star bathroom, but we felt the rest of our experience more than made up for that. We had a balcony looking over the Nile on the 4th floor - the rooms higher up are more expensive but whether you end up missing out on the view because of the Cairo smog, I don't know. The pool area is gorgeous with fantastic views. We found the food at the grill restaurant really tasty, but went out and about for most other meals. Food and drink is pretty much at European prices, but again, the location makes it worth it. Overall, though it may not look pretty from the outside, it's hard to fault. Would definitely go back!
