We stayed here before when visiting Cairo three years ago. The hotel is wonderfully located to let you explore many city sites easily on foot. The staff is helpful, and they go out of their way to make you feel as though you are a special guest. We found it convenient that it has a restaurant on site, with a... More

Service - excellent, exceptional, the staff helped with getting a taxi on couple occasions and provided reliable general advice. Breakfast - modest but we opted anyway for trying breakfasts in the best hotels in the City and also from... More

City View is right next to El Tahrir Square and across from the Egyptian museum. Staff is very friendly and always have a smile for you. Price includes buffet breakfast, and hotel also has airport pickup service. Although the hotel is right in the heart of one of the most important areas in Cairo, it is not noisy at all.... More

Stayed at the City View for three nights. It was my second time staying here and it felt like I was returning home. I was given room #509 as I requested, it is next to the restaurant and overlooks Tahrir Square and the Museum. I love the view and I was not bothered by noise at all. The hotel had... More

The position is excellent, just few steps from Egyptian Museum. Staff friendly. There is a restaurant inside, but I dont' recommend it: service is very slow and food medium. I would a guide for Museum,and recpetion found it, he was very expert and the cost is low than travel agency.

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.
