“Nice hotel and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

We were lucky that we ended up at Alaska Camp and Hotel.

The staff is friendly and very helpful. The room was clean and the air conditioning was perfect.

The hotel is centrally located but in a quiet setting.

Had a wonderful 12 nights at Alaska camp, in a double air conditioned room.

Quietest air con I've ever experience, which is lovely as I'm a light sleeper. Rooms are basic but perfect for a diver like me. The shower was glorious after a long day in the water. Jackie, the owner couldn't do enough for you can kindly lent me sun cream when i'd forgotten mine.

Lovely quiet location. Looking forward to coming back in November. Thank you!

Great basic rooms with friendly staff. The rooms are clean although a bit tight. The staff offered great suggestions in terms of dive spots and places of interest. It was a great atmosphere to meet other guests from around the world. We stayed here for almost a week and enjoyed beautiful Dahab and all it has to offer. I highly recommend a trip to the Blue Hole as it is the experience of a life time.

Second time to Dahab and was interested in trying out different hotels as I hope to be a regular visitor here. After staying one night in a different hotel I decided to leave and came across Alaska camp so thought I'd give it a go! I would be more than happy to stay there again! Rooms were very fresh looking and clean. Newly painted walls which made the room look nice and airy. The rooms are pretty basic but what else do you need? Cleanliness for me is my main concern and I realt couldn't fault this place. The shower was also quite powerful.
The hotel entrance is just off the prominade so you don't wen have to walk far to get to the shops or sea front..... it's all there on the doorstep! Fingers crossed I will be visiting again for another break :)

When you come to Dahab, you're not planning to spend time in your hotel room, other than to sleep and shower. So this hotel is an excellent value for just that. It's cheap, it's clean, the rooms are basic, but there is wifi, and the staff is very friendly.

The bathrooms don't offer soaps or toiletries, so you must bring/buy your own.

But the AC and the ceiling fan works. The balcony offers a view of the mountains if you lean over the edge.

Please note that along this strip of the boardwalk, there aren't any hotels that are actually ON the "beach." The "beach" is just lined with the cafes/restaurants, and you spend the day lying at the cafe on their sunbeds, and jumping right into the water. All the hotels are on the other side of the boardwalk, on the land side.

So it really doesn't matter how close your hotel is to the beach.

Really excellent camp/hotel. Really friendly and helpful staff and pretty much the center of the Dahab world. I could stay here a month (if I was lucky). There's also a 20% discount for guests of Alaska Camp at one of the nicest restaurants in town. Bonus!

Stayed here in May 2013 with my boyfriend and with a few friends. No problem staying in a room with my boyfriend.

Pros: the people are amazingly friendly. The location is right where you want to be--in the middle of restaurants, stores, and near to the beach access points (not that it's loud, though). Our double room had both A/C and a fan which was a real treat (although there are cheaper prices if you don't need A/C) and the room was very clean. Simple but clean. They are also connected to a bar down the street on the water where you can get a discount on lunch and dinner (although we mostly went there for breakfast and then to reserve sun beds for the day as well as BOGO cocktails) and the people there are amazingly friendly as well. Wifi worked in the public areas but seemed a little weak in the rooms. Finally, we had a late bus on the day they checked out, so we left our luggage at the front desk, did our normal daytime routine and then they were kind enough to let us use their towels and showers before we left. Dahab itself is awesome and as far as budget hotels in Dahab go, this is the best (I've stayed at Penguin and Jowhara before as well).

(Possible) Cons: The blanket left in the room did look a little unclean as we found a dead bug in it, but the weather was so hot we didn't end up needing it. If you're looking for a bathtub, the rooms only have a shower nozzle (without a curtain).

Room Tip: If you'd like a balcony, only the second floor rooms have them. Otherwise, the first floor room...
