"Bland!" Sofitel Le Sphinx Cairo Tip by mariocibelli
Sofitel Le Sphinx Cairo, Cairo: 1,221 reviews and 1 photos
Had to stay out in GIza for three nights. I prefered the coonvenience and quaintness of my £ 70 room in Talaat Harb to this corporate monster. The rooms are huge and there is a very nice pool and health club area. Massages cost 100 £.
The food was mediocre (as in most hotels in Egypt). The buffet (now synonymous with travel in Egypt) was the usual bland fare. Occassionaly an Egyptian dish was available.
Hotel staff were very courteous.
Cost about 35 to 40 £ to get a taxi to take you into Cairo at night. Travel time 30 minutes plus, the return trip was more difficult as many drivers don't know Giza that well.
Address: 1 Alexandria Road Pyramids Giza
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
