Cairo Sofitel is Nice!
Our stay was nice and the people were friendly. They called to check on us but they forgot to come back to clean our room when we asked. Overall the Sofitel is a nice place to stay and we will stay again.

STAY HERE!
LOVED my stay here. The balcony view of the Nile was stunning, and I enjoyed watching the sun rise and set daily. It's a convenient location and the hotel staff are very helpful in finding transportation. I also loved the pool area - great bar service and even floaties provided to lay out in the water
