Egypt re-evaluates hotels according to new classification criteria

The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities continues to work on the re-evaluation of hotel establishments across the country according to the new classification criteria (HC).

The ministry sent inspection committees to 247 hotel establishments in some tourist towns, with 91 establishments inspected in Marsa Alam, al-Qusayr and Safaga in the Red Sea governorate, 66 establishments in Dahab, Taba and Nuweiba in the governorate from South Sinai, 40 to Ain Sukhna. and Ras Sidr, 32 on the north coast and Matrouh, and 18 in Damietta and Ras al-Bar.

The head of the Central Administration for the control of hotel establishments, businesses and tourist activities at the ministry, Mohamed Amer, indicated that the work of these commissions led to the reassessment of 49 hotel establishments in these tourist towns.

The committees also reduced the tourism class of 20 hotel establishments, which had previously received notes and warnings for non-compliance with tourism and health observations that were monitored by the committees but did not respond, which led to a low level of tourism in these establishments.

Amer added that the committee’s work also resulted in 118 hotel establishments being given a deadline to adjust their conditions under the new classification standards, and the committees will review them later.

All tourist licenses of six hotel establishments have also been canceled due to their inability to facilitate tourist operations.
