Alaska hotel is inset from the dahab strip; despite being more expensive than similar dahab hotels, the majority of their rooms do not have an ocean view. I'd recommend against taking their breakfast; it's affordable but terribly underwhelming.
While the room was clean and fine, we had a very bad experience booking a trip through the hotel. We requested to go for a hike in the mountains, and were shuttled to the camp where they make the bedouin dinners. Once there, we were informed that they only make these hiking trips at night, so we were stranded up in the hills with nothing to do for several hours, eventually walking ourselves down to the highway. It was an awkward and miserable experience, and we ended up paying 150LE for two glasses of tea and a taxi ride.
The hotel refused to apologize, and we left very unhappy. It's a shame, because really everyone else involved was very nice except for the two people working at the desk, the first of whom sold us the trip unethically (in that she assured us a hike was possible when it was not), the second of whom refused to apologize.
