It was nice hotel if you are all day outside of the hotel. Is good quality-price ratio. We were there in May 2009 and 2010 so maybe now is different.. Dahab needs more tourists, so guys from hotel - please do it with good service and cleanliness.

The rooms we checked in them were dirty and we had to call the house keeping to clean it up and all she did was cleaning the floor. She...

Very bad, old hotel. Everything is ruined, holes in doors, leaking taps, dirty rooms. But worst of it is the staff! I had a discussion with the owner, and he and his staff attacked me with 5/6 people. Never go there! The owner is a dangerous alcoholic.

All the beds had new mattresses, the rooms were incredibly clean and included refrigerators, television and basic amenities. I had a balcony sea view room that i truly enjoyed. The half board breakfast was fresh and filling and included...

Stayed there for 3 nights back in April, 2011 with a large group of friends (20 Pax) which allowed us a bargain price for accommodation, and Dive Center services; but in general they offer competitive rates for both compared to other hotels of the same level. Dive Center staff were very friendly & helpful. Breakfast was nice. Rooms were a...
