10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely loved my stay here. We celebrated my wife’s bday in Cairo and I requested special accommodations from the staff the night before. And they managed to fulfill my request as requested without constant reminder. The food service was slow. But once the food came out nice and warm you forgot how long you waited. I would highly recommend anyone coming to visit Cairo to stay at Sofitel as I would be giving a visit back here. Thank you for your warm and kind welcoming.

Excellent customer service and room
Excellent customer service from all staff, especially at front reception. Stayed on 12th floor in a "Magnifique Room" which offered a panoramic view of the Nile. Bed was very comfortable, shower was great. The location is ideal to move around the touristy areas of Cairo. Lots of restaurants nearby.
