"Humphreys has a great talent for taking contemporary writing and using it to portray a coherent and fully visual impression of each town, hotel and its occupants, bringing the life of Westerners in Egypt to life"--Egyptological "We must thank Andrew Humphreys for providing a real treat for his readers"--Deborah Manley, ASTENE review ." . . perhaps one of the most interesting books we have seen in a long time; with most of the information collected by reading old travel journals and interviewing people. "Grand Hotels of Egypt" is a remarkable and entertaining book"--Cairo 360 "Andrew Humphreys' "Grand Hotels of Egypt" takes readers back two centuries to an Egypt of socialites and celebrities. Humphreys, a former resident of and frequent visitor to Cairo, artfully traces the rise of modern tourism and the hotel industry from Alexandria to Aswan by channeling the voices of the tourists themselves."--Egypt Today ""Grand Hotels of Egypt" is a visual delight: diverting and informative."--The Egyptian Gazette
