“Not a hotel, but a friendly home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

This was my second time visiting the Dahab, I stayed in several hotels. My friends recommended the Dahab Plaza hotel and it was a big lucky to me. I spent five wonderful days here. Everything was excellent. Perfect location, very good value for money. I got more for less money than in similar hotels. The hotel is brilliant clean, the rooms are nice and spacious. very helpful and friendly staff, you feel to spend time with your famíly or with your friends. In the future if I will travel to Dahab I will choose only this hotel and I recommend to everyone.

came here with my mother in law and Fiancée we stayed for arround 4 nights.
during checking we made it clear that we needed a ground floor room for the Mother In law (mobility issues) she would have liked a double bed but there are non available on ground floor level she got a room close to the pool and was happy. we got taken to our room to find 2 single beds (requested a double) they said they would sort it out in the morning as we arrived sort of late (around 22:30) but to our surprised we got a knock and they had found us a room with a double bed so we moved.

we where shown to the local off license. and which way the beach was, we had been in Dahab many times before and know our way around fairly well but never ventured to this side of the bridge.

the breakfast does take some time to be prepared but no longer then i would take at the other Egyptian restaurants (the Egyptian way takes some time ;) ) we enjoyed our breakfast did noticed that this time there where allot of flies about but these could be seen every where not just the hotel.

We left and i decided to confirm my booking i had made for me and my brother to Return.

me and my brother Arrived and where straight away shown to our room

we enjoyed our stay together as well and didn't have any issues

i enjoyed a swim in the pool most nights and preferred using the pool side shower due to it being a better height for me then the shower in the room.


we ended up booking my brother in for an extra night as he was flying early hours of the morning. this was no issue.


great bonuses during my stays where the Free Wifi, Complimentary Water , we only had the coffee or tea with our breakfast and spend most of the days outside the hotel

Greeted warmly by villa and hotel son gubara.
Wifi great, hotel facing beautiful mountain views.. Had a free shisha brought to us on the rooftop to watch sunset. Magic!
Breakfast is very tasty especially the huge and beautifully decorated Egyptian option! Free tea and coffee anytime.
And when the parties are starting in town you are nicely tucked away :)
2 minute walk to the beach which is great for snorkelling and just vegging out! We came all the way from Australia to check out the diving scene and we are already planning our next trip back :) love Dahab!! Cairo is quite fun too- although we were anxious to see if there was any trouble- none at all- we we to the Cairo museum which is right next to tahir square! Very peaceful!!

Arrived at about 7pm, greeted warmly by Jevila and the owners son and quickly shown to our room. Needed to switch rooms as almost everything leaked in the bathroom! This was done without issues but with help from the owners son that evening.

Being on the main road, the view from the balcony was "interesting". We got to recognise most of the local animals, including camels, on their daily visit to the rubbish pick up point.

On the first morning breakfast was served slooowly, one of the staff running out to buy some food! We got used to this! The breakfast location could be better, too many flies.

The free laundry worked really well the first time and sort of worked the second time, it arrived just before we left to go to the airport.

Overall have few complaints about the Hotel, in fact lots of compliments! Would we stay here again, yes.

DahabPlazaHotel, Owner at Dahab Plaza Hotel, responded to this review, October 23, 2013
I'm sorry for these mistakes that occurred upon arrival and I hope that these mistakes are not impacted on the trip and have spent a happy time after repair errors
I've been on a business trip outside the city and left my son is serving you even come back he does not have the experience in Fmamal management at the beginning of the road and I thought that I will give him the chance to be a good manager in the future
I repeat my regret and I promise that I will be always present to the oldest outstanding service which 're used to in the second home Dahab Blama
I hope those read this response that the place of Garbage is just 500 meters away and can be seen from the window overlooking the mountain , there is no such problems it is far first and secondly the state workers removed daily AM
Greetings to you ----General manager and owner - Emad Soleiman
