Cleanliness is not top notch, but can be rated as a clean hotel. Staff are welcoming and willing to help with anything. Very good Turkish coffee, can be ordered anytime/anywhere. This is the divers haven, with a well known dive center within #scubaseekers. So zero time is waisted between hotel and diving center. 5 mins from Dahab center point with... More

Location: 5 min. walking distance from Dahab's center (Al Masbat). Very convenient for outings, restaurants, shopping and services. Rooms: Basic, fit for purpose and relatively clean. Bed... More
