I had a very amazing stay, the stuff were really kind, helpful and very professional, and I’m looking forward to repeating the visit. Food was clean and the COVID restrictions are strictly followed. My room faced the Nile and to be accurate elephantine island with a magnificent view.

Great hotel with amazing service, mix between the Victorian and the Arabic design with Andalusian touch in the royal restaurant 1902. Nothing could be better than dining in front of one of the most beautiful views of the Nile. I’m thankful for your warm hospitality.

The Sofitel was hands down my favorite hotel we stayed at in Egypt. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. Our tours and transfers organized through the hotel worked out great and we enjoyed all of our room service meals. However, the lobby restaurant is not air conditioned so we did not do our included breakfast as it was extremely hot and there were flies about. I’m sure that even that would’ve been rectified had we been there in winter. I would not hesitate in booking a stay here on our next trip to Egypt
