Cairo Hotels

Sofitel El-Gezirah Cairo

  • 3 Shar'a El Thawra Council
  • Gezira


  • Quiet (for Cairo) location surrounded by greenery
  • All rooms have a view of the city and the Nile
  • Cool Buddha Bar on-site


  • Despite the central location, you're dependent on the hotel's taxi fleet to get anywhere because nothing is in easy walking distance

Fodor's Review

4 Sofitel El-Gezirah Cairo. The circular tower has been gracing the Cairo skyline for well over two decades, but the interiors here have been brought up to date after a takeover by Sofitel in 2006 (it was formerly a Sheraton), and the hotel has reemerged as a must-visit place for expats and visitors for its bars and restaurants. Contemporary luxury and understated style are the watchwords for the public areas. Rooms are decorated with cool neutral shades and pale pastels.

The hotel sits on the southern tip of Gezira Island surrounded by parks and residential districts.
