I am going to be 100% honest. I arrived back in the uk last night, after 1 week at the Gaddis. The staff at this hotel really do save it as they are all wonderful. The reception staff, the guy on the door, the waiters, the shop, they are all great. I felt like we were true friends, and every time I passed they would ask after me, and we would have wonderful conversation. The rooms are a little shabby, but it does depend on what you want. If you want glitz and glamour, go to Milan or somewhere, not a middle eastern country in financial and economic decline....
My room had hot water, a very comfy bed, a tv, and all the usual bits. What more do you want as a base in Egypt?! It could do with a lick of paint, but so what!
This was my first time in Egypt, and I will not be returning for a while due to the struggle I had with the hassle from the locals. I was travelling alone, and I simply had NO peace from any of them. Every step I took outside was followed by another Caleche driver or taxi or beggar saying they worked in the kitchen or they knew me. I have been in many countries where people hassle, but here a simple "La Shukran" does not work, I was hounded for my entire journey, lost lots of money and came home exhausted. Until the tourist police sort this out, I will sadly not go back, as I go on holiday to relax, not get stressed!! This saddens me as Egypt is a stunning country with lots to offer, and I spent time in Cairo, and both banks in Luxor, amazed at what I saw there. But the nice people in my opinion are being shadowed by the nasty people outside who see you as a walking wallet. I FULLY understand the crisis they are going through, but by being so aggresive in their technique, they are actually driving people away. But thank goodness for the Gaddis. I was happy to return there each night.
