I have travelled through many countries and I can honestly confess that none of these match the experience I had with Easy Travel Egypt's crew and Museum View Hotel. Unlike other travel agencies and hotels that try to suck your money by quoting elevated prices for tours, the staff of Museum View Hotel and Easy Travel Egypt were quite the...

I've been traveling all around Egypt, staying in hostels at Luxor, Aswan and Dahab, definitely Museum View Hostel in Cairo by far the best one! Friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, accurate tourist information and a very good-central location opposite of the Egyptian Museum

The staff made my trip. In a city where every local is seemingly trying to squeeze every last penny out of you, the museum view hotel was a breath of fresh air. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Highly recommended.

I'd give this hostel a mixed review. The staff is friendly and helpful. The young men on staff are learning English, with varying degrees of success. They all know enough to get by, and they're eager to please. The location is ultra-convenient for access to the Egyptian Museum, Tahrir Square, the Metro, and so on. You'll never got lost, and...

Second'ed the review by the guy from Brunei. Great location. Nice helpful staff - Mahmoud got us all sorted for the Giza tour, train tickets to Luxor, at great prices. But as far as the premises - you get what you pay for. This is really quite downmarket and not that suitable for young children. The rooms are basic, run...

The hotel sent a driver/taxi complimentary because I booked a room with toilet/shower/balcony (as stated in their website). Ahmad (still sleeping, and should be the reception guy that day) was very accommodating, he woke up to check me in. The hotel is on the second floor of an old building on the other side of the street where the National...
