This hotel was above and beyond my expectations- so much so that I feel absolutely compelled to write a review for them. For the price, it's an incredible location (the square is loud but bring ear plugs and get a room with a view of it- worth the noise) and the room is great! Clean, spacious, and safe. The staff...

A perfect location, with rooms overlooking the Egyptian museum and next to a metro station, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and clean rooms, and all this at an affordable price. The Wi-Fi worked well and the hotel staff were super-efficient in responding to my e-mails prior to my arrival. There are good restaurants close by and despite being in the...

I stayed at the City View recently for a few days. We were really impressed with Marco and the staff. We were supposed to be picked up at the airport, but we had a mix up and missed our ride. Marco was quick to offer a ride on another day as compensation (even though it was likely our fault for...

The staff here is excellent. They will make your stay a success. Several people work at the front desk but the standard of service is universally high. They know how to take care of guests. The airport service is excellent and well worth the money for the convenience. The restaurant food is acceptable but you can do better with a...

There is a metro station, bank and pharmacy within a couple minutes walk. The hotel offers free internet for guests, adequate speed for most uses. My...

I'll start by saying Thank you to everyone at the hotel, especially Marco at reception, Hisham and our driver Ahmed. You guys were amazing, can't say thank you enough. Cons : there are none, you get what you pay for and a lot more. Pros: When you first enter the building you might be disappointed by the cheap-looking entrance. but...
