The hotel is very centrally located and is essentially opposite the Egyptian Museum and Tahrir Square. The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. The only issue I had was that even though the hotel is on the 5th floor of a building, you can hear the incessant honking from infamous Cairo traffic... More

I would highly recommend this hotel! They have the friendliest staff of anywhere we have ever stayed. They were always greeting us or offering to assist us with our visit, and there was someone available at the front desk 24/7. The hotel is able to arrange car rides or day excursions for you as well. The complimentary breakfast was good... More

This is strictly a budget hotel overlooking Tahrir square and walkable distance from Downtown Cairo. Being on the 5th floor of the building and the with the windows bolted and shut permanently, noise is not a problem. Management is helpful and food is okay. Perfect for travellers looking of overnight stay!

The city view hotel has amazing hospitality, and responsive with booking. They picked me up from the airport at 1:30am and drove me safely to the hotel. They will take great care of you during your stay. I did a tour of the Pyramids and was fantastic! It's absolutely safe, centrally located to the subway, museum, and food. The view... More

My second stay at this hotel. Basic, bed, hot running water, A/C, satellite TV and WiFi. I stay here because of location--near Tahrir, the Egyptian Museum, Metro, shopping, restaurants. Friendly, very helpful staff. Restaurant on premises, free breakfast. Slightly noisy due to traffic, but if you're out running around all day, you'll fall asleep without noticing. Free transport one way... More

I just completed a 10 day stay here and wanted to recommend it. In addition to the location next to the museum, the dining room balcony looked out over the Nile and Tahrir Sq. You can walk to shops and I felt always felt safe. The best part was the fellows behind the desk...they arranged my drivers, my tours, packed... More
