City View Hotel, Cairo
Might be ok for the super budget minded.
Sorry, but not sure how this super budget hotel got the rating it did. Very low end. One of our beds was missing a leg. Every time you got up it rocked. Standing water on the bathroom floor when we checked in. Staff was nice and made us a take away breakfast before we left, but didn't make up for the very low end property.

Cairo: Resting on it's Laurels for 4500 Years
The hotel is suitable enough. I had to stay in one of their sister hotels the first night for some heretofore unknown reason and the wifi became very slow at some point.However, it was clean and the staff were very nice. The biggest complaint I've seen about the hotel is the noise of the traffic but that is an inescapable part of the city. The Ritz-Carlton, fancy though it may be, is in the same area and has the same level noise. Would I recommend this hotel? Sure, however, this presumes I would recommend Cairo, which I would not. The only real reason to visit Cairo is the Pyramids and that was the worst part of the trip. The scamming, hussling, and unsolicited (note-NOT free) assistance, really gets annoying and it is relentless. Expect to be overcharged, pestered for money, and constantly lied to. If that's your idea of a good vacation then, sure, visit Cairo. Otherwise, I'd recommend most anyplace else. I did not enjoy my time in this city but the hotel was not really the reason why.

City View Hotel - In Need of a Makeover
City View Hotel is well located near the Egyptian Museum, and major shopping. However, I felt the facility was in need of renovation as it was a bit shabby and run down. I ended up moving across the street to a newly renovated hotel for only $10 more per night and was very happy I did

Nice, convenient hotel in the hearth of the city!
Nice property, right in the hearth of the city; convenient to go everywhere, using oublic transportation. Staff was vey helpful and attentive. Provide one way transportation to or from the airport, and can make arrangements for the other way.

It’s right in front of Tahrir square. This is the most central location possible in the area
