We are often asked what Hotels we use and what is the difference between 3*/4*/5* star - so we have tried to explain this here. 3*Star - Tourist - clean hotel with no frills, private bathroom, mainly Egyptian family owned.
4* Star - Superior Tourist - more amenities than the 3* like restaurants and pools. Some Egyptian owned some Western management Chain Hotels like the Novotel in Luxor.
5* Star - First Class - Major Chain hotels in Cairo i.e. Hilton, Meridien, Sheraton either on the Nile or by the Pyramid. In Hurghada these are major resorts overlooking the water with private beaches and lots of facilities and large swimming pools.
Cruise ships: - We use only 4*/5* Star Cruise ships . All cabins are outside cabins with private facilities.
