Bed & Breakfast in Egypt

As a tourist, you’ll be most welcome in Egypt. If you’d like to get to know the country and its culture, book a holiday and stay in bed & breakfasts, guesthouses or in the desert beneath the starry sky. You will never forget your crystal clear view of the Milky Way!

Bed and breakfast in Cairo

Cairo is big, busy and stuffy, but a visit to this city of eight million inhabitants is a must. With sights like the pyramids of Giza and the mysterious Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum with Tutankhamun’s burial mask and the mummies as top exhibits, the ancient Coptic church and the many mosques, you’ll run out of time before you get to see all that the city has to offer. It would be a good idea to hire a guide to help you visit all the best attractions.

Egypt: Bed and Breakfast in Cairo

B&B in Alexandria

Alexandria (named after Alexander the Great) on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea was the second-greatest city of the Roman Empire after Rome. To this day, the architecture in the city still has a European flavour. If you’d like to know more about its illustrious history, visit the Graeco-Roman Museum and Pompey’s Pillar. For a contrasting perspective, take a look at the city’s modern mega-library and eat delicious fresh fish at the marina.

Bed and Breakfast in Luxor

Attractions in Luxor include the Luxor Temple, the Karnak Temple and the Valley of the Kings. The temple complexes are not only huge, they’re also well-preserved. We suggest that you take photographs in the morning or towards the end of the day when the lighting is ideal. If you’d like to delve into history, descend to the age-old tomb of Tutankhamun through treasure chambers at the Valley of the Kings. Go early, because it can get really hot here. Visit the Colossi of Memnon on the western bank of the Nile, which are two enormous sculptures of pharaoh Amenhotep III. They have been damaged as a result of an earthquake or looting and, according to legend, they sing a mournful song at dawn… but note that we haven’t confirmed this!

Bed and breakfast in Aswan

Follow the Nile southwards in a felucca, a traditional sailboat. Enjoy the natural beauty, the cool breeze and the life along the riverbanks. The idyllic botanical gardens on Kitchener Island are definitely worth a visit. If you haven’t bought any souvenirs yet, visit the magical market in Aswan where you’ll find exotic fabrics, herbs, jewellery and musical instruments. The immense Aswan Dam holding Lake Nasser impresses due to sheer size and technical genius. When in Aswan, book a flight or hire a minivan for a visit to Abu Simbel. These famous temples from the reign of Ramesses, located on the shore of Lake Nasser, will be a highlight of your holiday.

B&B on the Egyptian coast

Conclude your holiday by spending a few days sunbathing, snorkelling and scuba diving on the coast. The best-known resorts are Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh. Here, you can relax and enjoy the stunning coral reefs and multi-coloured fish. Absolutely idyllic.
