The hotel is well located on the southern tip of Gezirah with the Opera metro station a short walk away. We stayed in the Club rooms which did not have much to distinguish them from normal rooms and we were told as much by the Reception staff who said the only difference is "that we have access to the Club...

Sofitel is positioned on the banks of the River Nile and offers great views while enjoying breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a swim in the heated pool and spa. The staff are very friendly and the in-room services are reasonably priced for a 5-star hotel. For those willing to pay, the Sofitel Club services provides all-day benefits, such as an extended...

I have lived in Cairo and no other hotel I have stayed in offers a building that truly celebrates the Nile through it's design features, views and architecture. Great service in the club lounge on the 16th floor- perfect local breads and salads and the attention to detail from the team was outstanding. My Egyptian husband was taken back to...

Due to a mix-up in travel plans, I was booked into the Sofitel in Zamalek for six nights. This is full-on five-star. The magnificent foyer convinces one immediately that there is a pride in what they are doing here. It's right on the Nile which provides a terrific "riverscape" at night. The pleasure boats can be a colourful distraction or...

We stayed in a room facing the Nile on the 2nd floor. The noise from the Nile was intolerable. all night boats carrying partiers blasted arabic music in competition with each other.

I spent three nights at the Sofitel and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Located on an island in the Nile, you're a little removed from the hustle and bustle.
