I was wondering about this also, and how the prices compare, if there's any good deals there or just international overpriced names? Will be watching for anyone to post.

I have been there a few times. Its a huge shopping center .Yes it has all the International brands. Lots of cafes and eating areas. A large supermarket on the ground floor and cinemas. There are banks and ATM's. There is a duty free shop , electrical shops, clothing shops for men, women and children, toy shops etc. It is upmarket but if you have lots of time Id go there for a look around.. if you are pressed fr time leave it... If you are coming from Giza area it will take at least an hour in a taxi to get there.. coming home later at night will take less time...

the white cap from the street everywhere; airconditioned, comfortable and with electronic metres, so no need to bargain over the fare. The basic charge is 2.50 EP, then 1.25 EP per kilometre.

It is just a standard shopping mall and in my opinion holds little interest for tourists coming to see Egypt. For visitors looking for international type shopping probably a good place to go. We found it boring.

It's huge. You won't find any bargains there though. The prices are pretty much what you will pay in N. America. I thought it was great though. We were in Cairo for 2 weeks and after a while the traffic and how busy everything is and the language barrier became exhausting. It was so nice to be able to escape to somewhere familiar and eat familiar foods and see things that I recognized. The also have a store called Spinney's which is kind of like a super walmart which is good for picking up a few groceries and things you may need.

agree with gene and travelgurl, unless you need an escape from the streets for a bit, I would skip it as there are so many more unique and interesting places to see and shop in Cairo.

If you have been to any mall in europe or america then you already know what to expect.

Nothing special

Prices are the same too so no bargains.

I just went to CityStar Mall yesterday... yes it is a huge typical mall that you may find in your homeland like US/Aust or even my country S'pore. If you long for a nice, modern and countless shopping without hagglers that you may wanna try to be here... the only problem is that it is really far off from downtown area.... it would cost you more than 50LE if you are staying ard Tahlil sq/Garden city... and much more from Giza. Avoid coming to this mall on Friday... way too crowded!
