We came here for a honeymoon, 5 nights in July. Got upgraded automatically to 24th floor with a great view over the Nile and you can see the pyramids (from a bit of a scary balcony). Room was amazing air con was good, bed was very comfy and big. They give you free bottles of water in the morning. Free Wifi was quite weak in the room, but got it to work. Not a problem at all using it in the lobby. The lobby was nice to relax in, in the evening with various musicians every night.
What an amazing hotel, everything was immaculate, clean and modern. There is a nice walkway on the Nile in the hotel - little birds sat with us by the River at breakfast and the boats go right by the island! Excellent breakfast buffet and staff were great (Walid at brekkie, worth a mention for his cheerful face) - staff were helpful and gave me paper bags in the morning to pack some stuff to go. There were a few good places to eat in the evening (went to Kebabgy twice).
To be honest, I could say a lot more about this hotel. Originally I wanted to go to the Marriott, we popped in there and then I was so happy that my other half booked us into the Sofitel instead. We really would love to go back, and gutted that we had to leave!
