We had 2 weeks stay in Egypt... i just browsed around on trip advisor and i came through the city view hotel i found the price affordable and i when i read the visitors review 98% was positive and good they enjoyed their stay in the hotel. When i discuss this with my husband he also found it worth staying there as the location of the hotel was city center just opposite to Tahrir square and also 2mins away from the Egypt national museum.
The response i got from (Mr.Marco) manager of the hotel about my reservation was very quick by email, he was very helpful and in few mints my reservation was done i loved the most about the hotel was also their free pick up service from the airport when you arrive, as it was our first time visiting Egypt we were a bit worried that how will we manage the transport from the airport, but all sorted in just one mail i received my reservation letter and they arranged my pickup from the airport as well. The driver(Mohammed) who came to pick us up was very friendly and jolly he made us feel home, and once we reach hotel the staff was very friendly and helpful too the room and the view of the room was amazing the view of tahrir square and the Egypt museum was simply beautiful and the room was very clean, it was worth staying as it was our first time in Egypt we just knew few main attractions out there as i discuss this with the manager before leaving to help us in letting us know what attractions and activities we can do out there. As my husband is a traveller he wanted to travel different cities by different transports to explore the nature and breathtaking views.
I just emailed Mr.Marco our interest and what we must want to see and do in Egypt, the manager mailed me and ask me to just not to worry and come to the hotel your itinerary for the 2 weeks will b given to you as soon as you arrive and you can choose what else you would want to add in it. It sound great to me as i was free from all sort of burden of how will we manage in Egypt. And i must say it was worth it, when we arrived we were offered the welcome drink of Egypt the hibiscus tea which my husband loved the most.
The travel agent name Abbu Salaam (if im not mistaken) helped us alot and made our 2 weeks itinerary keeping in my mind our needs and our interest. Me and my husband was happy to see that, as we didnt wanted to waste a day we arrived in morning and our egypt tour start from the same day in afternoon, we visited few attractions in Giza, cairo the same day. In our following days visited cities like, Luxor, Hurghada, Aswan, Alexandria and white dessert(sakara) in our 2 weeks trip.
The tour manager, tour guides throughout our journey was very helpful and kind, Specially to mention Mosses in cairo, Mohammed in Luxor, and Marco in Hurghada. We always had someone to pick us up and drop us off to our transport to another city standing with our name at the destination. Our Trip to egyt was Memorable by any chance and for this i would like to thanks the City View Hotel and their Friendly Manager Mr.Marco and Helpful staff. Me and My husband enjoyed alot staying in city view hotel as we been travelling to different countries the best hospitality, friendly and helpful staff i found was in City View hotel Cairo.
I Recommend this hotel to all the travelers who visit Cairo, must stay in this hotel. As u save up alot in accommodation so that you explore so much other things in Egypt.
I will surely be back someday to Cairo and in the same hotel.
