Breakfast on the Nile.
The staff is very professional and courteous. Rooms are a good size and have good lighting. The views of the Nile are amazing at every hour. The breakfast offerings were vast and well laid out. The outdoor seating on the Nile set the tone for a great stay.

Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah, Cairo
Room is comfortable and well maintained/clean. AC worked well, but smoke from other rooms makes its way into our non smoking one. Balcony furniture would be nice, at least a chair and small table. Pool is lovely but gets crowded toward mid day. Restaurants are probably good, but we got room service and cocktails that were way too expensive. Location is good, but you feel isolated since there’s security and a 10 minute walk to the road. Construction on lower floors mans some annoying banging and drilling.

Nice hotel
Although it was Ramadan, Sofitel was still somewhat enjoyable. The room was excellent; comfy beds, pillows, towels, and robes were in included. Beautiful balcony view of the Nile River. WiFi was good. AC in the room was good. The customer service was a hit or miss, though. Not all staff were as friendly.
