There's a good range of accommodation throughout Egypt, with some hotels offering great value, others providing a characterful place to stay and numerous properties providing luxurious comfort. The country is blessed with some wonderful historic hotels, rich in charm and character. Many of these have played host to historical events or visiting dignitaries through the ages. Other properties tend to be international chains that are very comfortable and have more facilities, but offer less in the way of character. Many hotels in Egypt are set near the Nile or the sea so we'd suggest upgrading to rooms which make the most of the views, where possible, as the supplements are seldom prohibitive.
