The view is astonishing and the place is great.
Downtown Cairo with museum at walking distance.
I do recommend .
Not excellent because the price is little bit too hight since Cairo is struggling to get tourist.
I trust it is 20% over priced.

Driving for the first time from the airport into Cairo through the chaos and noise that is traffic, and arriving at this quiet, inviting hotel was the best start we could have hoped for for our two weeks in Egypt. This hotel is an oasis. We stayed in Rooms 912 and 920 with 920 winning out for its larger size and its better direct views down the Nile. Every aspect of this hotel is first class; atmosphere, rooms, relaxing lounge areas, food choices, service, location. If we ever return, the Sofitel would be the first thing we booked.

Room Tip: Higher floors and rooms facing away from the park give a better view of the Nile although both rooms...

Its is an amazing hotel . Its architecture is attractive and its interior is another world . I found it affordable and kind of good for a 5 stars hotel ( the charged me 150 $ per night for a regular room , i stayed 2 nights ) .The lobby is excellent and during evening a pianist plays piano , which makes the place a gem . Staff are attentive and helpful with a big smile on their faces , even if you are always calling their help . Rooms are spacious and well decorated with a bathroom contains strong hot water shower and a tub with lots of amenties ( loved the roses on the counter ). The room has a balcony that looks at the nile (every room in the hotel has a balcony that looks at nile river ) . I had on it the breakfast with my husband ( plain croissants , coffee , tea , cheese , scrambled eggs , etc ....) , its was romantic . The spa was amazing and infinity pool was perfect . We ate a kababgy restaurant , we ordered kabab , sheesh tawouk , koufta and mezze . Also , we ate at morrocan restaurant some tajine . The nile restaurant was good , i ordered burger and salad . At night after 9:30 pm , Buddah bar turns from a sushi bar into the hottest night club in eygpt . Its is really beautiful and you can meet nice people , its a bit expensive ( 33 $ for a glass of champaigne )but worth it , note ( you need to be elegant and well dressed in order to enter buddah bar or you will be rejected by bouncers ) . If you are above the age of 21 , try your luck at the hotel's casino , i gained some money from slot machines ( also you have to be elegant to enter ) . Over all a memorable weekend , come a visit the sofitel el gezirah because its a true gem and oasis in busy cairo .
