Hotel's Favourite
I am sure that this review will inevitably make it more difficult to secure a room but people need to know about the incredible amd amazing an experience a hotel can create. Granted I am an Accor loyalty member but the moment I came I was greeted by management and all the staff impeccable. Service was top notch at all times. Staff like Madonna were constantly finding new ways to improve my stay. It was the best hotel stay I have had in years.. on top of that there is a butler service included for certain rooms and incredible 180 degree views from the rooms.. I love this hotel and I plan to make this my new home away from home.. in addition (the loccitane spa was fabulous.. restaurants were extraordinary as well.. we ate at Teicko and loved the Asian flair. Thank you Sofitel..

Thanks John and Ankur for a good stay. Nice food, infrastructure, and quality of service. Close to most places. A bit too quiet for my liking - that's the only downside. Overall recommended for a short stay.

Amazing hotel - the nearby Raffles has been my favourite hotel for a long time, and the Obelisk continues the Egyptian theme. The whole hotel, from the building to the lobby, and the little touches in each room, is exquisite. The staff throughout were great - friendly and attentive (especially Mattar!) The executive lounge has stunning views, and the afternoon tea / canapés were highlights. Bedroom was clean, well presented. The bath was great. Highly recommend!

That was fabulous stay. This hotel is totally prestigious. We experienced good time in Sofitel the obelisk. I stayed at 32end floor and the view was breathtaking. Actually, the breakfast wasn’t that satisfying. However, that was second to none experience.
