I noticed some set their rating at the level equivalent to a star rating you might expect in a city like London or New York. I'm not quite sure what some people are searching for in a holiday in Egypt but for me I wanted an Egyptian holiday.
I'll get the negative out of the way... This has NOTHING to do with the hotel. You cannot walk anywhere without being hassled. I tried to experience an Egypt in Luxor for myself which did work but lessened the enjoyment because of excessive harrassment. Save yourself the stress and simply sign up to an guide for the week but negotiate car, entrance fees etc. in advance. You won't save any money at all by trying to do anything by yourself since egypt has a very strict local vs Egyptian pricing policy. In my experience even if you have an Egyptian trying to negotiate pricing for you they'll still casually ignore the request and charge you the "tourist" fee anyhow.
The hotel was amazing! Since I'd chosen my own holiday and done things my way I got a lot of hassle, The hotel was the one place I knew I was safe from this. The food was amazing, my room was always clean and we even received bird shaped towels on our bed. The staff were all friendly and no service was too small. I'd already made a decision to give a tip to staff and hotel before I left due to excellent service. This is the only area I had problems. With most of the tourist attractions you are asked for money all the time. A the hotel I wasn't sure how to give tips for their excellent service.....
