Recreation in Egypt and hotel booking in Egypt

Egypt - is a country that lives through tourism. Hotel booking in Egypt is one of the main sources of the replenishment of local budget. Recreation on the Red Sea, the famous pyramids of Cheops at Giza, cruise on the Nile - these are the main tourist baits of Egypt.

Egypt – is a Muslim country with the eastern way of life. Therefore, service in the hotels of Egypt is often a reflection of local customs. Thus, services in Egyptian hotels are performed exclusively by men.

The status of Egyptian hotels - is a relative concept. Ministry of Tourism, which conducts the certification of Egyptian hotels, is guided by their own criteria. Therefore, if a tourist wants to get a room with the guaranteed quality, the best way is to book a hotel, which belongs to a large hotel chain. Most world leading operators: Hilton, Marriott, Accor, Domina, and others – have their hotels in Egypt.

Egypt has a relatively young tourism infrastructure. Such large-scale resorts like Hurghada and Sharm Al-Sheikh had been established only two decades ago. Today only in Sharm Al-Sheikh over two hundred hotels are located.

Egypt - is a country that actively develops its tourism. Therefore, many Europeans habits are met here. Thus, despite the strong Islamic traditions in Egypt, there is no official ban on alcohol for foreign tourists.

When booking a hotel in Egypt you should know that in most cases food is included in price. Breakfast with buffet is available in the 3 * hotels and higher. In Egypt, due to the dry climate, shortage of drinking water takes place. Therefore, drinks are charged separately. To avoid problems with the stomach it is better not to use drinking water from local water supplies.

Room reservation in hotels of Egypt has some peculiarities. Thus, most of the hotel room capacity in the country is represented by single-room apartments. Therefore, in order to get two-room apartment booking in advance is strongly recommended.

Tip at the reception of Egyptian hotel (about 7-10 U.S. dollars) will allow guests to rely on a more comfortable room. This kind of « gratitude », which more looks like a bribe, is widespread in Egypt. Tip in Egypt or «baksheesh» is left everywhere - from shops to ticket offices. The size of «baksheesh» primarily depends on the services rendered and the personal qualities of those, who provide them. As a rule, the average tip in Egypt is 1-2 Egyptian pounds.
