The tourists — two Austrians and a Swede — “have suffered knife wounds but they are in stable condition,” said health ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed.
The assailants were “armed” with knives when they attacked the hotel, police said.
One of the assailants was killed and the other seriously wounded, a police official said earlier, adding that security forces had “foiled” the attack.
He said the tourists had been “slightly wounded”.
A statement from the interior ministry said the assailants had tried to enter the hotel from its restaurant on the street front.
