The owner let us check in early. The room was simple, clean and cozy. We had clean towers and sheets. Great location. The restaurant attached to the hotel was quite nice as well. We enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend Ali Baba hotel.

Terrible food. No pure water, only half salty water. Extremely un-professional manager/owner. Nice people but unprofessional as a hotel staff. More suitable for older age groups as the manager is a little stiff and rigid. But good location in the heart of dahab's downtown.

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.
