The only request to this hotel from me was a good air condition, but it failed it. It was hot as at hell. They have very old air condition that couldn't cool even one square meter. Hotel is cheep but I would never recommend it to visit specially in summer.

Stayde 5 nights in this hostel run by Mr Hassan and his brother, who don't seem to pay too much attention to the number of guests they have or whether they've paid or not. I stayed in a single ensuite room with A/C and paid less than half of what a dorm bed in Cairo cost me. Location isn't great,... More

If you are short on budgets worth it to take this hotel, the staff is very friendly, not intrusive like other Egyptians

The guys that work there are amazing. I stayed there three separate times and they made my trip. They helped us set up diving sessions, snorkeling, and even a hike up Mt. Sinai. We became good friends with the owners and I highly recommend staying there.

The hotel is located on a back street (not overlooking the sea). We arranged for a pick up and no one showed up so we had to arrange our on way from Sharm in the middle of the night. Room was very dirty, no proper bed linen, no towels, no toilet paper and on top of that the place was... More

Granted, we stayed there a year ago, but I've been meaning to write a review of the place. I was here with my spouse, mother, and mother-in-law, and we all had a great time just chillin'. The rooms were basic but very clean, the firepit/cushion area in the courtyard was great for relaxing, and above all the service was excellent.... More

This hotel and their sister hotel, the Nefertiti in Luxor, were our top 2 hotels during our holiday through Egypt. The rooms are large and clean and the location is great, being just a short walk away from all the conveniences you need without the noise. But the overiding factor was the staff. Sinbad and his staff were amazing. They... More

I had booked two days before I came to see what this place was like, and I stayed for 11 days. The location is one street back from the really busy beachfront, so it is much quieter for sleeping. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was really friendly. I acctually had other people I... More

First off the place was absolutely spotless, the people that run it are so friendly. Mustafa in particular helped me arrange tours and airport pick-up, unfortunately a lot of people try to rip you off in Dahab, if they know you're from out of town, but these guys are very honest............ As for location it depends on what you're after,... More

Stayed here for a few days at the end of May and loved it. The hotel isn't directly on the beach but it is nice to be able to walk out the entrance and not be harassed by vendors and restaurateurs. The hotel and Dahab are great places to end a tour of Egypt or just get a break from... More
