● Our prices are incredible, starting as low as $81 per person per night, for booking or for more information about the rates click HERE
● Please note that rooms are limited, so seize the opportunity and secure your spot now.

What is the best way to reach the event venue in case I didn’t stay at any of the 2 hotels you are offering?

● We don’t recommend you staying elsewhere because of transportation, Uber is available in Egypt but not very dependable where the venue is, especially since the competition starts early in the morning and also when done at night you want a reliable way to get to where you’ll sleep. The shuttle service we provide through the hotel guarantees convenience and smooth operation.

● So whatever amount you will save to stay at any low budget apartments, you could end up spending more on car rentals and private transportation

We’re not offering any Airport Shuttle Service; however, we advise you to use Uber, it should cost around 10-15 USD maximum from the airport to the Hotel.
