If you want to be in the thick of it then this is the place to stay. Not fancy and breakfast could be better, but I suggest you sample some of Cairo's excellent street food - great falafel sandwiches near by. Staff friendly and helpful with suggestions.

A great location just opposite to cairo museum. Near to Nile river cruise activity. Nice staff. Recommend for you, cheap price with good service. Negative point is you have to buy water in breakfast. A nice stay.

You are really in the midst of things at this hotel. The Egyptian museum, Tahrir square and downtown are all just a few meters from the front door. Might be noisy from the traffic but when we were there it was closed (due to protests). But it was all very nice. We took the family room (they say CNN books... More

The location is excellent, just opposit the Egyptian museum and close to the underground. Rooms are clean and the breakfast good. There is quite a few good restaurants around and staff is very helpful.

It's in a pretty good area next to Tahrir Square and metres from the Cairo Museum. It's generally clean and the rooms are adequate. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Just be aware that many of the rooms are located right next to the reception so if you are likely to be kept awake by the sound of... More

I usually stay at the Lotus around the corner, which is half the price of this one. But City View Hotel offered me a reasonable price and I thought I'd try a change. I was pleased that I did. The room was very good for the price - I asked for one overlooking the museum - the wifi worked well,... More

Stayed here in late 2011 on my third trip to Egypt because of the excellent location in Cairo and great reviews of guests. The service was fantastic, the staff treated us like family and went out of their way to help us with transportation/tours and places to eat. The room was comfortable and the terrace at the restaurant was a... More

The price for the hotel is reasonable, not the best, not the worst, but considering the location, as well as the included breakfast, fair. Located on Tahrir Square, with quick walking to the metro, as well as the Egypt Musuem, the location cannot be beat. Make sure to spend time in the square, the people of Egypt are friendly, extremely... More

They will make you feel at home, the rooms are a little old but for the price you cannot complain it is really great value, location cannot be beat right in central Cairo next to the square.
