Tatiana T. Couples - 01/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

A bit of a mixed review here - some aspects of our stay were great, but others left a lot more to be desired, especially from a Sofitel property in Cairo. During our honeymoon in Egypt we stayed at 2 other Sofitel properties in addition to this one, and we had the highest hope for our stay in Cairo and were very much looking forward to indulge and have a bit of a "luxury" stay, but I have to say it was very underwhelming. Front Desk staff is professional, but we found the Bell Desk staff more approachable and helpful during our stay. We did receive a lovely, complimentary cake on arrival as we were celebrating our honeymoon! Hassom who refreshed our room each day was so kind, we ran into him every morning and always greeted us with a smile and asked how our stay was, if we needed any extra water for our room, etc. The gentleman at the Business Center was so warm & helpful, I wish we'd gotten his name, as we had to print out some last minute travel documents for our flight. The pool is smaller than expected from photos we saw online & on the website, but you can't beat the panoramic views of Cairo, and photo opp in their infinity pool was a must! Although at check-in we were told the pool was closed for maintenance repairs and the hotel was offering a shuttle to the nearby Novotel to use their pool, once we checked into our guest room, we could see from our balcony that the pool at Sofitel was very much in use. The next day we went downstairs to the pool and there was no sign of maintenance repairs, so we took full advantage alongside other guests and spent many afternoons after our day tours lounging by the pool and soaking in the sun. There are plenty of lounge chairs and cabanas to choose from. I will say, we were expecting poolside service from the cabanas & lounge chairs with attendants, but you have to go to the pool bar to order (not a big deal, but just fyi). During our time there, Ahmed seemed to be the only active attendant poolside who would take orders from your lounge chairs or cabana, regularly walking around checking in on all of the guests to see if we needed drink refills, wanted to order any food, or simply needed anything else like an umbrella for shade. The rooms are clean and roomy, but a little dated, and there was a slight smell of cigarette smoke in our's (it might be from the casino on the 2nd floor, or simply that smoking is widely seen all over Egypt). The bed & pillows were so comfortable, and the rooms are quiet at night for a very restful sleep. The views from your guest room are impeccable, absolutely stunning panoramic views of Cairo. The evening staff at Casa Mia was excellent! We had dinner one night on the Nile and couldn't have asked for better service and the food was great too - VERY generous portions and good offering of Egyptian wines too! Definitely skip the breakfast buffet at Casa Mia, the offering is very limited and not worth the cost whatsoever. Compared to the other Sofitel properties we stayed at in Egypt, we were shocked the buffet offering was so limited at their Cairo location to be honest. We did indulge in room service 2 nights of our stay, which was excellent and offered such a wide variety of menu items to choose from anytime of day or night. All in all, next time we are in Cairo this property wound't be our first choice. That being said, if you have a booking there I wouldn't worry or rebook elsewhere. It's a beautiful property situated right on the Nile, the grounds are beautiful and well kept, and if safety is a concern, it definitely won't be here as they have security checkpoints and each end of the property, and it's in a safe location - we walked around the surrounding areas during our stay and didn't feel uneasy whatsoever.

They have never returned the 600 USD that they supposedly held from my card in case of additional room service, despite the fact that I only spent around 100 USD on room services. I have tried to email or call them. Nothing worked.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. Rest assured that we have investigated your comment and it appeared that on arrival the hotel’s Front Office team made a pre-authorization on your debit card with the amount US$ 600 as a down payment for your accommodation plus the extra. On departure to settle your stay an amount of US$ 384 were used out of US$ 600 that were previously authorized, so the rest of the blocked amount should have been automatically released by the issuer bank. According to the hotel’s authorized bank; the CIB we were advised to kindly ask you to contact your bank as they need to liquidate the difference back to your debit card At Sofitel Hotels & Resorts, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future.

From the moment my taxi kindly dropped me off, I gazed at the wondrous site in front of Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah, and knew I was in for an extremely rewarding experience. Expectations were fully met on all parameters! From professionalism, courtesy, kindness, generosity, cleanliness, & overall service that I will never forget. The inside is just as beautiful as it is outside as well, and given my international travel experience I can fully vouch that this was a standout experience. The food was immaculate in every way from presentation to taste. The views in the room are breath taking being right at the sea was mesmerizing. There are many things to go on about indefinitely, aside from all else, the staff made the culture of the entire place and gave me an experience that made my time in Cairo, a legendary one. The guest relations manager was an embodiment of wonderful, professional service and helped a lot with giving me a map of Cairo that made my trip around the area so much more easier! Great leader and great members around as well. I am extremely looking forward to my next stay.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to place your remarks following your recent stay. We are excited by such encouraging and positive comments.

Service that does not mutch the name of the hotel

dmitryrussia2021 07/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

We traveled with family. Ussually Sofitel= high quality standarts, but not this time. We expected more than 1.5h to prepare the room check-in. I had ask for extra bed for a child 3 times - by phone, at the reception, via WhatsApp. As a result, the bed was delivered at night, when everyone was asleep. The concierge service does not work and does not provide any practical assistance, it sits behind closed doors. On the positive side - the service on the club floor is wonderful, pleasant lounge.

I do hope that we will have the opportunity once again to serve you in the very near future. Sincerely yours, Iman El Gabaly Guest Experience Manager

I strongly recommend this hotel for Cairo city tours. Especially we liked lounge on 16 floor managed by Mr.Muhhamed. Design is very stylish and oriental. Sometimes reception didn't react fast we wanted for some enquiries so we have to repeat 2-3 times.

This was my second stay in the hotel in three months, but the check in this time was messy. My first time to meet such situation in All Accor hotels which I have been staying in, specially in the Middle East and Egypt. The proper room allocation and upgrade took almost 3 hours. After check in in the room I have had to wait for almost half an hour to get my balcony opened. The Covid safety procedures were not meeting the Accor Covid safety requirements. The room was clean and the bed was okay. Bathroom and furniture require some maintenance. Amazing full Nile View from the balcony. Excellent breakfast and dinner services with reasonable variety. I hope in my coming stay The reception staff could have my room ready in advance to allow me enjoying my stay.

Bonjour Valued Guest, First of all thank you for your nice comment, the Sofitel Cairo- El Gezirah team as well as the hotel management will be looking forward to your next visit. We were very pleased that hard work leaves good memory in our guests’ experience. Rest assured that your constructive comment about the check-in and COVID safety measures will be shared with the Hotel Management for improvement. 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

I had always wanted to stay at Sofitel Nile El Gezirah. I love the building design - so unique in Cairo! My daughter and I booked our 2-night stay, looking forward to relaxation. It was achieved to an extent. I was completely shocked by hotel guests not wearing masks, in general. It seems like hotel staff just gave up. From the elevators to the common areas, it was like: "What pandemic?" No one even attempted to put one on in the elevators. In fact, a maskless woman in the elevator asked my daughter and me, "What's it like to be on vacation in Egypt during a pandemic?" We responded that we didn't know, as we live in Egypt (Zamalek). In fact, we heard this sentiment throughout our stay. A guest at the pool from Gouna said (about a group of foreign visitors), "They closed Ibiza - they have nowhere else to go." I was really uncomfortable with this generalization of non-Egyptians. The pool area is lovely - gorgeous Nile views abound. Pool staff work hard. The food service department is interesting - we waited FOREVER for our food at the Moroccan restaurant. (It was good, though.) The breakfast was underwhelming. Our standard was the delightful food at Sofitel Luxor. The buffet aspect of breakfast was uninspired - not particularly appetizing. Some of the pastries were tasty but overall presentation was lacking. The omelets were so-so - one was undercooked, another burnt. Not the standard one comes to expect from the Sofitel brand. The fitness center was great, and the indoor jacuzzi was AMAZING! The limited booking times to reserve the jacuzzi was frustrating, however. Finally, the view from our room was truly remarkable - fantastic! We loved our balcony as well. The room comes equipped with a mini-fridge, comfortable beds, and a relaxing chair. This was a highlight of our stay. Thanks to Hamdy and Mohammed Salah in the breakfast area for caring and letting us know they wanted us to have a satisfying experience. Thanks, too, to front office manager Mohamed Mansour.

Dear Valued Guest, It was our pleasure having the chance to have you with us. As you are aware that the hotel had deployed all COVID-19 precaution information all-over the hotel including the elevators, offering free mask in the rooms and in the reception. Would of course take your comment serious and advise the guests that it would be better if they wear their mask at all time. We were very pleased that hard work leaves good memory in our guests’ experience. We all look forward to be of service to you once again at Sofitel Cairo-El Gezirah. Sincerely yours, Iman El Gabaly Guest Experience Manager
