Egypt has set minimum room rates for 4-star and 5-star hotels to improve the quality of services offered to tourists.
Guests at 4-star hotels must be charged at least $25 per person per night. In contrast, 5-star hotels must charge $40 or more, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Dr Khaled Al-Anani said, Al Arabiya reported citing a ministerial statement.
The decision is scheduled to take effect from November 1, 2021.
Egypt’s tourism revenues fell by about 69 per cent during the past year as the coronavirus pandemic curtailed international travel.
