Alaska Camp & Hotel
Ranked #22 of 53 Hotels in Dahab
Reviewed 4 June 2009

Alaska camp and Hotel is by far one of the best in Dahab. The staff are friendly and welcoming and make me feel very relaxed during my stay there. they also offer a breakfast in the mornings which is excellent.
The rooms are modern, clean, airy and a good size. There was a fan in the room as well which was wonderful in the hotter months.
The location couldn't be better. it is bang in the middle of Dahab an you walk out onto the main promenade of shops and restaurants o you really don't need to walk far at all. Alaska is within easy walking distance of Lighthouse (a great diving spot) and many other attraction. It is also very convenient to get a taxi from there.
i liked best the atmosphere in the camp. It was relaxed and pleasant and i felt very safe there. I would definitely go there again.

Been there several times - always super friendly, clean, great atmosphere. A real treat. The fact that it is not situated directly on the beach might be the only down side.

Rooms very clean and pleanty of hot water available. Staff could not do enough to help this included arranging Taxis at a better rate recommending good places to eat etc

Highly recommend the Breakfeast as this is also very good and plenty of fresh fruit and juice plus all the other bits for the price

There is not a Dive School on site but the one recommended by Jackie was excellent

We can not wait till Novemeber to get back out

Very happy with stay at Alaska hotel. Rooms fairly basic but marble floor and newly decorated and clean. Staff friendly and the hotel has a safe feeling to it. The showers are generally hot and salt free unlike other hotels in the area. The breakfasts are also good value.

The location doesn't give sea views to the rooms but the location is very near the central shoreline location of dahab (with the front exit from the hotel being here.). The bad side to this is that this location is also the place you get hassled the most from various shops and restaurants to come inside and they can be quite persistent.

Overall if your looking for a value option with close proximity to most the tourist locaitons in Dahab you'd be hard pushed to get a better deal than Alaska.

BTW we dived at Desert Divers which can also be highly recommended.

After a hectic trip through Jordon and Israel, we decided to spend our last 4 days in Dahab diving and relaxing. Couldn't have asked for a better place to do this than Alaska Hotel.

Rooms were very clean with hot, fresh water showers. (heard from other people we met that many of the hotels have salty water). Staff were very helpful and arranged a bedouin dinner for us one evening and made suggestions on good restaurants in town. They don't have a dive centre yet but the one they recommended was excellent.

The cushioned seating area is great and they had a fire going in the evenings. Spent a lot of time just sitting around and talking to other people staying there.

Only thing I would comment on is that it was 2 days before we realised we should have requested towels as they are not provided as standard. Not really something to complain about though.

Will be heading back to Dahab in the near future and would definitely stay at Alaska Hotel again. Excellent!

We chose the Alaska Camp based on the recommendations from other travelers on the Lonely Planet website--and we were not disappointed! Spotless rooms, and a very comfortable welcoming vibe. Jackie is very helpful, and if you are arriving via plane from Sharm I suggest contacting her/Alaska Camp to arrange a ride--we didn't and overpaid by about 300% to take a taxi from Sharm to Dahab. I've also heard that getting to the bus station from the airport in Sharm can be a bit of a hassle as well, so keep that in mind. The firepit and sitting area in the center of the complex is a great place to enjoy a beer and some company at the end of a day of diving. Plus, the location is just off the main drag along the Red Sea, which couldn't be better!

The staff is very attentive which is another big plus!
