“An excellent 3 night stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2011

I stayed here for business and relaxation. Excellent location, staff, service and very clean, comfortable bed and nice shower! I live in Egypt so can appreciate a decent hotel. I would recommend the Novotel el Borg to any traveller passing through. I have a beautiful view of the Nile and the bridge across to Tahir Square and can also see the Egyptian Museum. All and all an excellent stay and definitely look into this hotel if you are traveling to Cairo :)

Room Tip: Request a Nile River view!!!!

This hotel is very good situated in the heart of Cairo, walking distance to Tahrir Sqaure, Ramses Square. Price is a little bit expansive, but is worth it for 2-3 days during visiting Cairo.
If you want to stay at this hotel take the last floor you will have a very good panorama of the city.
Also you can walk on the streets of Gezira Island. Also you have a metro station near by hotel.

Room Tip: Take last floor

A friend of mine stayed at Novotel Cairo El Borg for one week in August, 2011. This hotel has exceptional service. The staff at the front desk of both the hotel and the travel agency in the hotel were so kind and welcoming, as were all the service staff. The hotel rooms were very nice, clean, and updated. The pool was great and so were the restaurants and cafes in the hotel. I cannot say enough about this hotel. I have never been so welcomed by staff at any other hotel I have stayed at. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Cairo. Also, the area (Zamalek) where the hotel is located is the best area to stay while in Cairo.

This is a good solid hotel in a good area, adjacent to much of the action in Cairo. The hotel itself is relatively new and is well appointed, with good sized rooms which have large beds, TV and ensuite bathroom. They were clean and well maintained. The hotel has a restaurant and two "bar" areas, but they do not serve alcohol - common enough in a Muslim country such as Egypt. Nevertheless the rooftop bar is well worth a visit for the views over Cairo. There is a nice swimming pool with showers and changing rooms.

Staff were helpful especially Mr Khaled on the front desk. Cleaning staff did a good job each day. However the Travel Agency left a lot to be desired, but I understand that this is perhaps a franchise with a concession in the hotel rather than direct employees.

The location is excellent with the Cornich El Nil in front of the hotel and Cairo Tower to the rear. The Egyptian Museum is walking distance. The hotel is about 25 minutes by taxi from the Airport. Taxis are always available outside the door, just be aware that ALL taxi drivers in Cairo will try to cheat you - always agree a price for the trip before you get into the taxi. As a general rule, the correct price will be about one third of whatever their first quote is. Walking away will cause prices to drop quickly!

This was my third time in Cairo and I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the city.

Only one year old so very clean inside. Standard Novotel rooms, simple and stylish. Great views over Cairo. Nice small pool perfect for children, with its own kids corner. The higher rooms seem to be all smoking so we had non smoking on 2nd floor. We had room service breakfast which was nice, 70 LE (7 GBP). Many nice floating boat restaurants just a few minutes walk. Tahrir Square/Egyptian Museum just 10 minutes walk away. We took a taxi from the street to Pyramids, just 50 LE (5 GBP) one way. Cairo Tower (their version on the Blackpool tower!) is right next to the hotel, and great for seeing the sights over the city. Also recommended is going on one of the boats on the Nile, good fun to go on a full public one, have private if you want the quiet experience =) Only one issue was we had to change our room keys twice as they had stopped working in 2 days we were there?

Room Tip: Nile side is more expensive (and quieter), but the city view with the Cairo Tower is really very nic...
