“Great stay at the Sofitel El Gezirah”
Reviewed 15 February 2009

I stayed three nights at The Sofitel El Gezirah. The hotel is centrally located and has great views across the Nile and downtown Cairo. Most of the staff spoke good English.
You'll feel safe at this hotel. They have guards with dogs to sniff the taxis before they let them enter the compound. They also have people to stand guard outside the hotel as lookouts.
The room was great, it had one of the most comfortable beds i've ever slept in. With a hotel this great, it really comes down to nitpicking. Somebody doesn't like the color of the drapes, the minibar doesn't include the right items etc. The bottom line is that if i ever return to Cairo, i will stay at this hotel :)
