Sinai Old Spices Review, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt

Sinai Old Spices, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt

Sinai Old Spices, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.

Sinai Old Spices B&B in the Bedouin village of Roissat, just outside of Sharm el Sheikh (Egypt), is possibly the most charming and comfortable guesthouse/bed and breakfast I’ve stayed at.

At the time of writing, Sinai Old Spices Bed & Breakfast has a 94% rating on Hostelbookers.com, and I have to whole-heartedly agree with this rating.

This guesthouse was welcoming, clean and I could’ve stayed here for a month instead of 5 days. The room was well-lit, spacious and well laid-out with a comfortable bed, nice closet, TV, fully equipped kitchen and a fridge. I was even provided with an Egyptian mobile phone during my visit to help make my stay smooth.

I would highly recommend staying at Sinai Old Spices if you’re visiting Sharm el Sheikh, and especially if you want to be away from the resorts in central Sharm el Sheikh.

Entrance and garden/sitting area
I felt welcomed as soon as I entered the guesthouse area. Sinai Old Spices only has four rooms, so it feels very cozy. There are lots of wall decorations, chairs and cushions.

In addition to the common area on the ground level, they also have a roof top area with a great view of the mountains behind the guesthouse.
