Tourism Ministry committee recommends minimum charge prices for hotels

The Tourism Ministry committee mandated with setting a minimum charge for hotels in Egypt is recommending that five star hotels in Cairo charge a minimum of USD 110 per night, committee head Magdy Naguib tells Al Borsa. The committee is also recommending that five star hotels in Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada, Alexandria, and Luxor charge guests USD 35 per person for an all-inclusive stay. Four and three star hotels in all areas would charge USD 25 and USD 20, respectively. According to Naguib, the committee has also set punitive measures for non-compliant hotels, including the revocation of their license or shutting them down altogether. The ministry is expected to send its report to Tourism Minister Yehia Rashed by mid-month
