The location of this hotel is really god. However, the rooms are dated, old, dirty, the washroom is terrible. No door to the shower and the water was spilling over. The carpet is dirty and smelly. We booked a high level upgraded to a Luxury king size, full Nile view room. The room we got was FAR from luxury. First off it wasn’t on a high door, the hotel doesn’t a weird count so floor 5 is floor 11 for them. It was such a disappointment. I called and asked if this was their luxury room and they said yes. I wonder how disgusting the “regular” room is. The lobby and the restaurants are nice. The Moroccan restaurant was great! We enjoyed that! But DO NOT BOOK THIS Hotel. It is not even a 3 star hotel let alone a luxury one. You are better off booking another hotel for this price, as there are so many close by.

Great experience and the view can’t be beat

This stay was booked through a tour agency so I didn’t know what to expect until arrival. I can’t say enough good things about this hotel! The service was fast and friendly, the restaurants had a vast selection of food to choose from, and I could see the Nile from my room. Mohamed Al-Akam from room service was very helpful, even when I asked questions outside of his department he was able to help. The room was larger than expected, and the amenities were high quality and more than expected. Highly recommended.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your nice comments, assuring you that for your next visit we will make sure that will keep up to your expectations. Rest assured that we have shared your nice comment with the hotel’s Restaurants team for them to know that hard work pays off. Sofitel Cairo- El Gezirah team as well as the hotel management will be looking forward to your next visit. Cordially, Iman El Gabaly Guest Experience Manager

Poor services, high prices, smoking everywhere

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

anastasia_ushakova Families - TripAdvisor review

One of the best and expensive hotels is located in a city center. Services are bad: we were placed in a smoking room though I was asking for a non-smoking room for our family. Also they tried to extra charge is for a bed for a baby although it was 100% paid in advance. Guests are smoking everywhere, even in the elevator, even in a fitness center it was smelling like hell. The area around hotel is a nightmare: very dirty, not recommended to go outside. Restaurants inside are average, prices are crazy

Dear Esteemed Guest, It was our pleasure having the chance to have you with us. Please note that we have checked your comment about allocating your room in a smoking floor and we wish to confirm to your goodself that the room was in one of the hotel’s non-smoking floors. Rest assured that your constructive comment about guests’ breaching the hotel’s rules and smoking in a nonsmoking room were passed over to the Director of Security to reinforce more control. It is genuinely known that the hotel’s guests are asked to pay for the extra bed, if their reservation is for double occupancy and they check in triple. We wish to advise you for your next visit to book a triple room, hence the extra bed will be provided free of charge. I do hope that we will have the opportunity once again to serve you in the very near future. Cordially; Iman El Gabaly Guest Experience Manager

Customer service needs training and improvement. Checking in was slow, manager tried to add surprise fees even though I clarified fees when booking in the phone as an All Accor member, when I call front desk service it is difficult to reach someone. When j was locked out my room I called on the hall phone for a key to be brought up but nobody came, when we asked bell hop to bring down bells it took a very long time.
