Location: Wonderful, just in the middle of Cairo (you could walk to the egyptian museum) directly located at the nile and so far away from any major road (actually in something like a sports park) you hardly hear any traffic noises. There can hardly be a more quieter place in Cairo. Just 20-40 minutes from the airport and about 1...

Sofital rises 27 stories on the banks of the Nile. Our 25th floor room gave breathtaking views of the surrounding city but standing outside on the small balcony was a vertiginous experience! Everything was in place for a 5 star hotel, impeccibly trained staff, wonderful public rooms including a library although the smoking therein will seem strange to Western Europeans....

El-Gezirah means island in Arabic. And the hotel is on an island in a river(The nile river) !!! All of the rooms have a perfect viewing thanks to the rounded structure of the hotel and to the location that gives a huge breath without any high buildings near by. The hotel has a wide garden at water level and there...

Beautiful hotel, well-run with generally attentive staff. My only complaint was that the loud music from the boats on the Nile often continued until 2am or later. Obviously, this is not the fault of the hotel. Excellent breakfast, very nice gym/steam/pool facilities. It's also a very short and pleasant walk, maybe 15 minutes, to Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum....

Cairo is overwhelming and exhausting at times. This hotel is an oasis of calm. I have spent a lot of time in a lot of places in Cairo. Sofitel is the only place I choose to stay these days. Breakfast on the terrace next to the Nile is a great way to start the day. The staff are very friendly...

My 7 year old daughter and I stayed here in April 2013 as our base for exploring Cairo. I've stayed in several luxury hotels around the world, and the Sofitel el Gezirah is just as one would expect from such an establishment. The hotel is clean, very well maintained. There are plenty of well-groomed external areas to enjoy food and...

Even though this hotel was a bit expensive, I can say now that worthed every single cent.

This is a luxury hotel with stunning views. Service is excellent. A harpist accompanies the breakfast buffet while various musicians play in the loft bar each night. As at April 2013 it's very cheap for what you get. Highly recommended.
