Not recommended at all. They wanted to charge double occupancy for a room that accommodated 2 boys aged 16 and 10 while they do not have any meals plans. Rooms were not cleaned until we asked for it. The shower and the TV at the boys room were not working.

Travelled to Dahab with a friend and stayed in Ali Baba on the advice of a friend. From the moment we stepped in we were grated like royalty with amazing service and hospitality. The room we took was enormous and overlooked the central buzz of Dahab with spectacular views to the ocean. The room itself was in great condition however... More

Me and my husband spent 9 days in this hotel. Very nice and clean rooms. I loved the carpet on the floor, i don't like bare floor (especially in winter time))), and it is very seldom to find a hotel with carpets in Dahab :) There u can find a satellite TV, fridge, kettle and cups. The staff was friendly,... More

I stayed at the Ali Baba hotel for 20 days and the experience could almost not have been more pleasant. Staff are extremely helpful, even though they tend to be overworked (especially Beverly - the kindest and most hard working hotel manager I ever encountered). The room was pretty sizeable - especially for one person (I could choose which side... More

We stayed in Ali baba for 10 days and really enjoyed it! Especially the breakfasts at the rooftop terrace and the helpful staff which pointed us out the best diving centre in Dahab. The room was good but not perfect, but what to expect with a price of €35 a night for a double. Thanks Beverly!

The pictures on Booking.com and elsewhere must be from 20 years ago, because the property is now quite worn down and in need of serious renovation. That being said, for the money, it is a good deal, the meals alone are worth the price and Beverly, who is English, goes out of her way to assist you. For an American,... More

The location of the hotel was great right in the middle of Dahab, you had the views of the sea and mountains, the breakfast was very good you did not want to eat for sometime after. The staff very friendly, they arranged transport from airport and help organize trips, a good relaxing holiday. Many small shops below the hotel, gifts,... More
