Club room

A great stay in the club room. Although, the 'happy hour' was only 5.30-7.30 and they said we were only allowed three drinks each! Lovely pool and really relaxing atmosphere!

Das Hotel ist an guter Lage mit schöner Sicht auf den Nil. Das Personal war freundlich und zuvorkommend. Einzig war der Kaffee extrem teuer (ca. 100 Ähyptische Pfund für eine Tasse). Dazu kamen Gebäck, welche wir nicht besteölt haben aber bezahlen mussten. Im Ganzen aber angenehmer Aufenthalt. Ich komme wieder.

Bel hôtel avec un cadre incroyable. Ne pas y aller le week-end (en Égypte le week-end c'est le vendredi et samedi) car il y a une forte affluence notamment à la piscine. On se serait crû à la station Châtelet-Les-Halles un samedi. Autre bémol, les chambres sont vraiment viellotes !

Food was all-around terrible. Dreadful, cold club-sandwich in a Tesco quality. The "shakshuka" they have on the menu had nothing to do with an actual shakshuka, they just served scrambled egg with tomato. Embarassing for the price and the Sofitel brand.

Hotel mal conçu pour l'hiver. Il y fait froid, pas de chauffage et on est toujours dans des courants d'air, spécialement dans le magnifique salon du lobby ouvert à tous vents. Pour le reste, tout était parfait, situation, personnel,propreté. On recommande plutôt le Resto kebab avec leurs spécialités. Les autres restos ne sont pas très bons. Mais c'est probablement pareil dans d'autres établissements.
