Philae Hotel Aswan
This well-established hotel has had a serious revamp, and it is now by far the best midrange hotel in town. The Egyptian owner returned from Germany and went on a shopping spree in Cairo to furbish her hotel...
The Egypt single-handedly fills a desperate need for decent midrange digs. A noticeable step up from the budget choices, it’s set in a renovated 100-year-old Italian building right on the Corniche...
Jaz Almaza Beach Resort
Zāwiyat ‘Āʼilat Nūḩ
On a remote stretch of seafront 37km east of town, this resort includes five luxury hotels; see the website for info specific to each one. All share a beachfront, and guests can use facilities at any of them, including sampling the tasty buffets...
Paradise Inn Windsor Palace Hotel
This bejewelled Edwardian gem is an institution unto itself, towering over the Corniche and keeping a watchful eye on the Med since 1907...
Nakhil Inn & Dream Hotel
The friendly Nakhil is a cosy compromise for those who want hotel comforts without the crowds...
New Pola Hotel
Great views and a small rooftop pool make the New Pola an excellent bargain. The decor is kitsch but the 81 air-con rooms are spotless and come with minibars, satellite TV and private bathrooms; half also have Nile views...
Camel Dive Club & Hotel (Boutique Hotel)
Sharm El Sheikh
Attached to the dive centre of the same name, Camel Hotel is one of the best places to stay if diving is your main Sharm agenda...
El Gezira Hotel
Different in style, as it is in a modern building overlooking the lush and fertile agricultural land in the village of Gezira al-Bayrat, this hotel is very much a home away from home...
Susanna Hotel Luxor
Set between the Luxor Temple and the souq, this modern hotel has 45 spacious rooms with comfortable beds, wi-fi, air-con, satellite TV and great views...
Helnan Nuweiba Bay Resort
The Village Resort is a good choice for affordable upmarket accommodation in Nuweiba – the main hotel area consists of a collection of attached bungalow-style rooms overlooking a central garden area...
Oonas Dive Club
Sharm El Sheikh
This combo dive centre and hotel has bland but well-equipped rooms on a prime spot along the promenade. Accommodation is a bargain if booked in conjunction with a dive package.
Sheraton Luxor Resort
This secluded three-storey building is set amid lush gardens at the far southern end of Sharia Khaled ibn al-Walid – close enough to walk to some restaurants but far enough away to avoid any street noise...
Horus House Hotel Zamalek
This friendly family hotel is in an apartment block a few minutes' walk north of the main street of Zamalek. The more recently renovated rooms are satisfactory and there is a nice terrace to relax on...
If you get one of the renovated (‘class A’) rooms, this is a gem with a whiff of yesteryear, with the perk of an excellent rooftop bar. If you get stuck with an old room, it’s not worth half the price.
Judging by the lobby, this is a thoroughly modern three-star place with glittering mirrors and plush carpeting. But rooms don’t live up to the promise – the newish bathrooms make the rest look a little shabby...
A lovely compromise if you want resort living without being isolated from town. Set amid a mature garden of blooming bougainvillea, Nesima’s cosy cottages have pleasing stone and wood overtones, domed ceilings and dinky terraces.
El Gezira Garden Hotel Luxor
A large resort-style complex with 14 double rooms and 8 flats with 2 double rooms, a kitchen and a living room, popular with Germans...
Fairmont Towers, Heliopolis
A sprawling resort close to the airport, the Fairmont has an excellent pool area with kids' pool and playground, a health club and tennis courts...
Conrad Cairo Hotel
The Conrad Cairo is running strong, and continues to uphold the luxury moniker of Conrad Hilton...
The gloomy, peeling-paint corridors don’t inspire confidence but the rooms (decked out in a cream and green combo) are surprisingly tidy and bright...
Sofitel Karnak Luxor
Quiet and secluded, the enormous Sofitel Karnak has 351 Nubian-style bungalow rooms set in lush Nile-side gardens, 3km north of the Temples of Karnak...
Beirut Hotel Cairo
This shabby place is worth considering only because it's one of the only midrange choices in the Heliopolis area. Rooms are bland but reasonably clean; all have bathrooms, satellite TV and air-conditioning...
