“A great freindly hotel”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

I stayed at the Jowhara hotel over xmas and new year. Even though Dahab was quieter than my two previous visits, the hotel, staff were as freindly as ever. helpful and especiaclly at encertain times lie these, the sence of safety and community based wellbeing shone through. Tracy and Soliman were two of the most hospitable and careing individuals any holiday maker/backpacker would care to meet.
So I thoroughly recommened this hotel and will be goin there again in late May and cannot wait!

Room Tip: Closest to the office for quality internet

The Hotel is central! clean! great breakfasts and super affordable! It was my first experience when arriving in Egypt and I was happily pleased with the great experience! The staff, Mohammed, Suleiman and Tracy are a great help and friendly! + They can set you you up for any activity you might need like a safari to the Sinai mountains, St Catherine or a scuba diving class! I am thankful for a week of peace calm and great atmosphere! Thanks again guys!!!

Clean and comfortable accommodations. Room was basic, but they seem to have different levels of rooms. Tracey is wonderfully hospitable and knowledgeable, as well as a good breakfast cook! Very relaxing courtyard and eating area, or you can just wander down the street to the local restaurants, or over a block to those on the water. Very central location in the village. WiFi too.

Very professional dive operation on site, with top of the line equipment for rent, well trained expert staff and a focus on safety. Hans and his team offer excellent diving appropriate to your skill and certification level.

Room Tip: Upstairs with balcony had view of mountains

Excellent staff and facilities. The food was brilliant! I stayed for two weeks and every day had a good chat with the staff who made me feel like family. Really would recommend to all!

stayed here for 12 days in december, all the staff are very friendly and helpfull- there was never any pressure to do any trips through them- unlike some other places- but the trips i did- canyon trek and Petra , were fantastic and organised by Solliman without any hassle.the breakfasts are excellent thanks to Tracey, and everything you may want to do is within easy walking distance- Jowhara is at the quiet end which is also a bonus- would definitly recomend staying here.

Room Tip: i had a room with aircon and fridge , with balcony

Wow stayed here in october for 12 nights....from arriving on the first night we were all made to feel really welcome, nothing was to much trouble for the friendly staff...Rooms are basic but spotless clean and fit for purpose, which is reflected in the cost of staying here...The hotel is well situated for all activities, only downside no pool, which for i thought might spoil it for us....but i have to say because of the location, getting to beach is not a problem, we are all returning again in april and beleive me we cant wait!!!

Room Tip: choose an inside view...

Jowhara is a simple, clean, no-frills hotel for very little money. What makes it stands out from its competition is the hospitality and the genuine friendliness of the management and staff. Nobody is pushing you to do anything (treks, trips, dives), but if you need any information, they will happily provide you with it and arrange anything you'd like to do. Breakfast is great and always served with a smile. I have no problems recommending Jowhara to any budget traveller out there! I'll definitely be back!
