Lovely small hotel. Especially cleanliness & kind, helpful staff. I'll go there again in September, and have recommended the City View hotel to a friend. I love to have a clean room - and it was spotless! There was hot water, and I had a nice shower. Staff were so kind and helpful - provided a driver at reasonable cost,...

The location of this hotel is excellent, just across the Museum and overlooking the famous Tahrir Square in Cairo. The hotel is situated on the 5th Floor of a heritage building. You can enjoy a cup of coffee in the evening sitting at the restaurant facing the majestic Nile River with some cool breeze. There are many restaurants & shops...

If you want to be close to the museum you can pay $300 at a 5 star hotel or less than a third of that here. Good bed and bathroom and a veranda that looks over Tahir Square and the museum. Great free pick up at the airport. Good restaurant on site, but not all menu items available. Very friendly...

We stayed twice in recent weeks and both times received excellent service from friendly staff. The hotel is on the 5th floor of a large building. The room was small and basic but had a TV, wardrobe and minibar (cheap too - 3le for a bottle of water). It was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We had...

I stayed here for 6 nights, arriving well after midnight. I was immediately welcomed in a genuine fashion, but not kept waiting for my room. In the morning I found that I could see the museum from my balcony. Everything worked in the room including the shower, fridge and TV. On this last item, no British language stations at all...

I visited Egypt between March 3 and March 10 and spent a wonderful week at this hotel with two friends from Turkey and the US. City View is very centrally located, across from the Egyptian museum and Tahrir Square. The rooms are basic, but very clean and with prompt room service in the mornings. The showers were always hot, the...
