On my way back home from my journey to Cairo I had lots of great memories on my mind and many souvenirs in my suitcase. But most of all I was thinking about all the impressions and experiences which made me feel so close to Egypt – enabled through my best friend who lives in Cairo and through Select Egypt...

We stayed four nights and therefore received free transport from the airport to the hotel. We were received warmly but the next morning when it was time for our breakfast there was nobody. The employees were very apologetic when we returned that evening and even offered an Egyptian meal for that evening. This happened another day as well. It seemed...

My wife and I are used to staying at 5 star hotels. While the Minamar Museum Hotel is not 5 star, our stay there was one of the most rewarding of our frequent travels. What made it so wonderful? The people who run it. The entire staff was professional, friendly, and went out of their way to make us feel...
