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...

I visited Egypt between 5-8 of March. My friends and I stayed in this hotel. The Hotel was excellent with great location, clean rooms, nice breakfast, and most importantly very friendly staff. And all of these was for a really good price. During our stay, we didn't even need to hire a cab. Hotel provided us a driver and a...

Stayed overnight on the way of Egypt after staying at a western chain hotel on Zamalek nearby (to cushion a long trip from California and not knowing what to expect in Cairo). Walked over to check out the place before booking a room. It occupies the fifth (and sixth?) floor of a run down building (most are in this part...

Great location, plenty of shops, restaurants and tourist attractions around. It was perfect for me since I was just on a short business trip near Tahrir square. It is reasonably clean and the food is OK. The furniture is a bit old, nothing fancy and it can be a bit noisy since it is right in the heart of downtown...

I visited City view hotel in a business trip and i was amazed first with the location of the hotel and second with the friendliness of all the staff... The view was amazing, overlooking the Egyptian museum of antiquities and the Nile river. The 24 hour room service, for a small hotel as this one, was surprisingly good. When i...

City View Hotel is OUTSTANDING! I stayed here for 3 nights on my visit to Egypt and I could not have been more pleased. My room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It felt more like I was visiting friends than staying at a hotel. Everything was convenient ( their own drivers for transportation,...
