Rest of Egypt

Hotels in Rest of Egypt

The setting for much of the Alexandria Quartet novels, with many rooms overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

118 Pierre-Yves Rochon–designed rooms (Neoclassical furniture; Roman-style baths) in a crescent-shaped tower on the Corniche.

Built in 1906, this grand hotel is the place to see Alexandria’s faded glamour.

Aswan, a palm-fringed city an hour’s flight south of Cairo, saw glory in the 1950’s, when politicos and bold-faced names arrived to visit the Aswan Dam. But even during Egypt’s recent unrest, the peaceful destination remained out of the fray.

A beacon of conservation, this spare Berber-style hotel on the Siwa Oasis was constructed as part of a local sustainable-development plan.
