8/10 Very good

Good deal for the money. Excellent city view.

6/10 Good

The hotel is very well located, close to plenty of dining options, public transportation and shops. The building is run down and the area is very noisy, though. Staff is pleasant and welcoming.

10/10 Exceptional

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The area around the hotel was very safe, I (a woman) was walking around the neighborhood at night, alone. The pickup at the airport was easy and reliable. I had to leave at 4:30 am to catch my early morning flight. They gave me a wake-up call at 3 am, and brought me a box breakfast at 4:00, with hot coffee! The drove me to the airport at 4:30 am

Old quaint hotel in a great location in the center of town. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Because of the location there is a lot of traffic noise day and night.

8/10 Very good

The staff at City View Hotel are really friendly and incredibly helpful. When there was a small problem in our room, they did everything they could to sort it out as soon as they could - nothing was too much trouble for them. It's that personal touch that makes a good hotel stand out. And I challenge any other hotel in Cairo to have a balcony with such a brilliant setting - to eat your delicious breakfast with a view over the Egyptian Museum and the buzzing Tahrir Square below is a real treat, every morning.

6/10 Good

Pros: It is conveniently located near the museum and lots of little shops and restaurants. It has very good air conditioning. The staff were nice enough, (side note, the seemingly nice guy in charge of the Ali Baba restaurant in the hotel didn't understand that I paid for a large bottle of water at the front desk, so he kept asking me to pay him.) Cons: if you want a clean place with little noise disruption, skip this place entirely. Their standard for a 3 star hotel is very much equal to a 1 star. There is way too much noise from the traffic right outside the hotel if you are a light sleeper. The wifi is choppy, and the breakfast seems like they found the cheapest options to throw together to make it passable. It worked for me because I knew it was very economically priced so I looked past all the short comings because I was invited to a wedding across the street at the Ritz Carlton (which was $300 a nite vs around $40 at CVH) and spent most of my time at the Ritz. I only went back to the city view hotel after fun crazy nights and only needed rest. So if you just need a semi clean place to rest and will enjoy the sites and everything else most of you time there, then it may be sufficient.

4/10 Fair

Thanks but no thanks!
I was taken to another hotel without my knowledge cause my room had a problem. I would have apprechiated the heads up. Next day finally got to the hotel I booked, the room was decent size but dirty, there was no hot water (turned out I had to turn on the boiler myself), I was offered a coffee in a chipped mug and the free shuttle was not free after all. False advertizing thats all. Staff was nice but most couldnt understand me and when i told them I couldnt sleep becuause of the constant honking the answer I got was "It's Cairo". I couldnt even bother anymore I was too tired.
