Stayed with a group and it was perfect for our purpose; not too expensive, not too cheap. The rooms are clean and tidy. The staff is very friendly (mostly Coptics) and there is alcohol. After a week the breakfast gets a bit boring. Balcony in our room was great, the bathroom very very small but with it's own heater for...

We stayed in the City View for 4 nights in October 2010 - staying in Room 208 (next to the restaurant). Comfortable, clean and with a very good view from the balcony - across to the Egyptian Museum. Breakfast was good and plentiful - cold meats, cheese, bread, jam, cakes, yoghurt, eggs, cereal, juice and tea/coffee. Staff very polite and...

Not bad for $60 per night. Nothing ott - but staff were friendly and helpful with certain staff really willing to pull out the stops and help. which is nice. Some rooms far better than others - I stayed 5 nights in two blocks and had varying rooms, but they were certainly good enough to get ones head down. Location...

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in October. I have stayed in a number of hotels in downtown over the years and this was my best experience to date. The hotel's central location means that there is quite a loud traffic noise at all times, however this did not bother my boyfriend or I and we slept well...

We had a last minute glitch which left us three weeks away from our first trip to Egypt and no hotel booking. So, we started researching Cairo hotels, using Trip Advisor and other web sites, we happened upon City View. I sent a few preliminary emails and Adel always answered me quickly, efficiently and was very helpful. Thankfully City View...

Good value hotel with pleasant and helpful staff. Only downside is the location - while it is close to the museum and fairly convenient, the traffic noise is quite loud from the rooms that overlook the main road. If you can get over that, this is a good place to stay. The hotel's tourist guru, Salem, will arrange any tours...

Visited Cairo for the first time in late September 2010, and stayed in City View for four nights. The hotel is clean and hygienic (especially when remembering that this is Egypt we are talking about), service friendly and breakfast plentiful. Being located next to Midan Tahrir, City View is obviously not the most quiet option in Cairo - but the...

The employees of the hotel went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We arrived very early and they got a room ready in about 20 minutes.
