    I appreciated the confort very much and also the kindness of the staff of the hotel.

    I didn´t appreciate the existence of a chimney of the restaurant next to the swimming pool, whose smoke and intense smell of food during all day were determinant to make us unconfortable.

    The hotel's location on an island in the Nile in downtown Cairo is unbeatable and the view from the balcony of our room on the 21st floor was breathtaking. We could even see the pyramids at Giza! We were also impressed that the balcony door was double-glazed, making it possible to shut out the traffic noise of the city which never sleeps. A hotel worker we met while going for a stroll on our first day in Cairo went out of his way to be helpful to us without expecting a tip - rare for Egypt! We were also impressed that the hotel allowed us to use internet facilities in its business centre free of charge. Other hotels we stayed at charged for this service. Eating breakfast al fresco meters from the Nile was also a memorable experience.

    I can't really fault this hotel. I would recommend it to other travellers, but probably wouldn't stay there again because it was well outside our budget and a one-off splurge for us.

    Over all is ok, but what was interested their the people who work in the hotel, very corporative , kind and easily handles the obstacles .

    The room it's so small in conparison with the same class hotels.

    Location overlooking Nile and close to Egyptian Museum would have been fine under normal circumstances. Travelling with my 21 year old daughter.

    Unfortunately the political protest which shut down the entire city caused us to be confined to our hotel for the entire stay. We only stayed two nights instead of the three pre-paid as we were extremely frightened. A refund of the third night's accommodation under the circumstances would be appreciated very much.

    There was an error on the booking (on my part), but the staff were very accommodating and helpful.

    The behavior of the staff ruined all the positive things.

    We were at this hotel at the first day of demonstrations and I can't believe how the hotel and the staff did their best to take advantage of this situation rather than helping and protecting its guests. In a country where mobile phones and internet does not work Sofitel made us pay a 200 Euros phone bill which we used to arrange plane tickets from our home country as the hotel was unable to do so. Furthermore they insisted that we should pay in Egyptian Pounds where as it was impossible to leave the hotel and the exchange facilities at the hotel were closed. The english ability of the staff is limited. The security guy opened our bags without asking our permission when we first arrived. Finally they arranged us a 5 times overpriced taxi.

    Because my accommodations in this hotel are normally for business , I have no time to spend full day in the hotel , but with several time of stays everything was OK

    The location of this hatel and the Nile view was excellent. The bar-restaurant Buddah-Bar was perfect, very tasty sushi and far east cuisine.

    Very slow internet speed, some problems with the water of the bathroom (2 times in the starting black water for a few seconds), small bathroom.
