9 Boutique Hotels You Should Try At Least Once in Egypt

For starters, what exactly constitutes a “boutique” hotel? A boutique hotel is smaller than the usual hotel chains (can be as small as 10 rooms), and usually has unique style and design. Whereas a room in the Hilton and a room in the Sofitel aren’t going to differ much, most boutique hotels have their own individual flavor. But just a heads up — just because a boutique hotel is small, does NOT mean it’s necessarily cheap. Many are very upscale and very guest-oriented. 

Here are a few you try, whether you’re looking for a vacation outside of Cairo or just a staycation. Prices are based on averages provided by Trip Advisor.
