The Sofitel El Gezirah is no doubt a great hotel. Brilliant view from the pool and the rooms. It is in a great location and has great ambience and atmosphere.
But I couldn't help but think the restaurants let the place down. The breakfast was alright, but we thought it was on the expensive side and didn't offer enough variety compared to other hotels in Egypt we stayed in.
We ate at the Kebabgy one night and were highly disappointed with the service and the food. The service was terrible for a 5 star restaurant. The waiters appeared to operate like headless chickens, and the lady who was in charge ignored us and other tables on numerous occasions. The beef shish kebab tasted terrible (the meat tasted slightly off) and we didnt eat it all. My wife felt quite sick afterwards.
BUT, I am only offering that information for the benefit of the hotel. Do not let that put you off staying at this very polished hotel. You will not go wrong booking here.
