Choosing a hotel in Cairo for a week, I was guided by two main criteria: reasonable price and central location with convenient transportation nearby. Cleanness went without saying. Pool and gym weren't in need. Based on TA reviews, I tried Longchamps first. But it was fully booked on some of the days I needed and I didn’t want to break... More

Good hotel in an excellent location right next to the Egyptian Museum and close to the Nile. Nice and clean rooms, computer with free Internet in the hall and a very good breakfast. We only had one night in Cairo and the location was perfect for us. We had a stroll along the Nile in the evening and the next... More

We got to this hotel after running away from the Windsor Hotel that showed us a really dirty and old room, and we were pleased to find the City View Hotel. The location is perfect. The room we stayed in (#519) is very very clean, the bathroom had a bathtub and everything was new and well remodeled. The whole hotel... More

City View has a great location, right opposite the Cairo Museum. Rooms are a good size, with old world charm - but pretty shabby (with mosquito repellent plugged into the wall!). The staff are friendly if not overly eager on arrival, and wait around for tips. Overall pretty good value for money, though don't think I'd stay here again or... More

The hotel is down town, near the Egyptian Museum. As we arrived the chauffeur picked us up at the airport. All rooms do have a balcony with a nice view on the museum. I have been here about 5 times, and every time I had a nice time. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nice and... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel and what to say in my review. On the positive side: Location: The location of the hotel is excellent. Across the street is the Egyptian Museum (until it eventually moves to Giza years from now); a block away is the Sadat Metro station. Very easy to get to/from Cairo sight and it easy... More

It is a very good hotel! The location is excellent! It faces the Egyptian Museum and is located near to the Metro station. There are KFC and Pizza Hut nearby. The room is clean! The buffet breakfast is excellent! However, it is a little bit expensive! Hotels in southern Egypt (e.g. Luxor) with the same quality are cheaper. Perhaps that's... More
