      The location cannot be beat, right there in downtown Cairo, nice view of the museum from your room.

      I just think they need to mop the rooms better, there is alot of dust blowing in from the city. The floors get dirty and a nice mopping may do the trick. Also, we had to constantly ask for bathroom toilet paper and soap. Even after the maid had cleaned the room, we still needed to ask the front desk for these items. The front desk were very helpful and courteous. Very nice people.

      The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to make your stay a good one. We enjoyed our stay and would return again.

      City View is located right at Tahrir (Revolution) Square, and there were demonstrations going on while we were there with our teenage children. Although it was a little unnerving not knowing how far the protests would go, the staff at the hotel did everything they could to make us feel safe and at home. The only real complaint we had was that, due to the protests, the noise (honking, chanting, shouting, honking!!) kept us up for much of the 2 nights we stayed here. On the other hand, our boys got to experience some history and met some great people at the hotel who shared their stories of the revolution with us. Unforgettable.

      Just the noise that was resultant from the protests.

      This hotel is located close to Midan Tahrir, the national museum and the metro. It's easy to access the different part of the city from this location, also by foot. The staff is very friendly and helpful and breakfast was good. It also feels very safe, since the access is by elevator that the staff manages 24/7. Note, however, that the main road is just outside the window, so it's not a quiet stay. With earplugs at night for easy sleepers it would be no problem. I will definitely recommend City View, it's a good value for the price.

      Hotel staff were very helpful and honest. They went out of their way to help us with our lost luggage and even made a box breakfast for us the morning we left because we were leaving before breakfast started.Location was fantastic, looked out our window directly onto the museum.

      Location - right on Tahrir Square. With a great balcony overlooking the Egyptian Museum, but also the Square is even more intesting now given that it was the location of the recent revolution. Value - cheap given the hotel's location.

      The noise. Even with a curfew in place (midnight to 0600) there was little soundproofing against the construction work going on outside. Bring earplugs - but don't let that put you off - it's still a great bargain given the quality of the room and the location.

      Good hotel for tourism, i.e., a place to sleep in center of town, good breakfast, good internet, excellent location for sight seeing. Traffic noise not more than you would expect from a hotel located right in the middle of city center. Good staff.

    • Group of friends

      The staff were very helpful, including giving us a map of the area and the different things to see around Cairo. The hotel was in the middle of Cairo, so everything was within walking distance!

      The hotel was situated in down town Cairo, which was a little scary at night because it was only myself (female) and another girl. However the hotels in Upper Cairo, along the nile were really expensive. The budget prices made it worth it in the end.

      Very nice hotel, clean, good location, good security. Reception staff and restaurant staff are very helpful. They provide many kind of sightseeing trip to you. If I go to Cairo one more time, City-View will be my first choice.

      Food of restaurant is not good.

      The location is great.It near the Egypt museum and Tahrir sq .The staff was very friendly.We booked a two days tour for 120e which is a very good price.If u want to book a tour ask Alfie to be your tour guide.He is a very good guide.

      The breakfast was poor and bad quality.The have to be more carefully about the cleanness of the dishes,glasses,spoons and other staff in the breakfast room.The heat at our room didn;t worked.So we asked for extra blankets.The hotel it s in the 5th floor of a very old and dirty building.

      Very friendly, helpful and reliable staff. At Tahrir Square itself and overlooks the museum, thus is in a central location

      Noise from traffic, wjhich can be quite disturbing at night. However, unless it is a 5 star hotel, this would have to be expected from this type of accommodation in Cairo

    • Group of friends

      The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very close to the Egyptian Museum and the River Nile which was useful. It's right in the heart of the city, so you get a real feel for Cairo.

    • Older travelers

      The location of the hotel is ideal. The view from the rooms is very entertaining and the centre of Cairo is within easy walking distance.

      The breakfast supplied was very limited, and any food requests not on the standard menu were charged extra. ie: a glass of hot water.

    • Family with children
      7.4

      Excelent location, reception staff was very friendly and helpful.

      The breakfast could be a little better, with more variety of fruits. The bathroom was very small. The room was too noisy.

    • Single

      The room was neat, modern, comfortable, safe.

      I came from the us via Tunis, to visit an Egyptian friend in Cairo. At the time of booking the hotel online, I observed no notice of the fact that Egyptian nationals are not allowed in the rooms of foreigners. I found this highly inconvenient and upsetting, and this threw a last minute inconvenience in my trip.
