There is a wide range of accommodation in the town of St. Katherine, plus at the Monastery of St. Katherine, in the Mount Sina ecolodge in Wadi Isbaiya and at Ramadan's Garden in Wadi Arbain. On the top of Mt. Sinai there are cafeterias that provide blankets and a place to sleep, the little cave of Salah Abu Ghalaba and a walled campsite in Elijah's Basin. You can see an exact hiking trail to Mt. Sinai via Wadi Arbain and Jebel Safsafa with waypoints and photos on the SinaiMaps website.
