On the southern tip of Gezirah Island, the hotel is a corner of paradise in central Cairo, minutes from Cairo’s business districts. Discover a haven of peace during a vacation in Egypt, and a comfortable base to rest after a successful day of business. Relax by the pool, pamper yourself in Sofitel SPA, wine and dine in our international restaurants and bars. Surrender to luxury and come for a day, a weekend, a week…or more. A stroll along the hotel’s lush riverside promenade takes you to a host of acclaimed restaurants and bars. You can take your time, enjoying the cool shade of exotic palms and breathing in the scent of hibiscus. You’ll hear the gentle sound of water lapping as you rest on a Nile-side terrace with a cool drink, and dine on international cuisine. It’s especially beautiful at dusk, when the sun sets over Cairo’s skyline and vibrant nightlife. Escape the city for a day at our secluded Cairo hotel, which feels like an exclusive Egyptian resort set in lush gardens. Take advantage of Sofitel SPA and Sofitel FIT, float in an infinity pool overlooking the Nile, unwind in a bubbling whirlpool bath… whatever you desire. Day membership includes discounts to the restaurants and bars which line the Nile-side promenade, promising refreshment and fun for families, couples and friends.

So sad that this beautiful hotel with an amazing reputation worldwide gets ruined by one bad attitude by the acting manager at the front desk. My portable speaker was requested to be confiscated for no logical reason given saying it’s the hotel’s policy. If it’s the hotel (strange) policy , why is this not mentioned on the front page of the booking website. I was furious that my mini portable speaker that I sometimes play while In the bathtub or while working in the room would be taken away from me and when asked for reasons , attitude and anger escalated. The manager’s name was SAAD- and I immediately asked to not proceed with the check-in booking only to realize I would lose the entire amount as I had paid on bookings. Com. A bellboy came to the rescue showing kindness and calm to fix the situation. God bless him . His name was Badr - calmed me down and walked me to my room and promised that my speaker would be in good hands . I’m aware that it definitely would but this is not how you should treat a guest. My issue was that if they would tell me to play the speaker volume down i would, but don’t confiscate my equipment / belongings without prior consent. All in all - I had a stressful check-in experience caused by an insensitive Manager on duty - surprised he could be the face of Sofitel - a renowned hotel chain that I respected and trusted for many years especially in The UAE - specifically Sofitel the Palm. What a stark difference in treatment and welcome. Views are incredible if you get the Nile View room. Would never stay there again though and would recommend neighboring 5- star hotels as there are so many with the same incredible view. Treating guests should not be that way. Here are some photos of the view. NB And the Bath Tub was blocked. Shocked at this.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for staying at Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah and for your recent review on Tripadvisor. It was our great pleasure to look after you and serve you according to our high standards. First and foremost, I would like to most sincerely apologize for the inexcusable experience you encountered during your recent stay in Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah, whilst at the same time, I thank you for taking the time to bring this matter to management attention. It goes without saying that being in the hospitality industry, we expect and demand that staff are at all times courteous and friendly, we regret the circumstances happened that gave you a bad impression about the team. Rest assured that I will personally take care of this issue and use it as an example during counseling and training sessions. Allow me to clarify to your kind attention that indeed the hotel does not allow speakers or musical instruments into the hotel’s rooms; as it is our role to ensure that all guests are provided with a quite and peaceful environment during their short visits to the hotel. Again, I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused to you that I hope will not deter you from using our property for your future stays. Sincerely, Iman El Gabaly Guest Experience Manager
