“It is one of the best hotels in Dahab !!!”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

The hotel is a "small" hotel but with "big"service.
The staff of 10 people is constant trying to make everyting perfect.
If you ask something they wil try to work it out directly.
The staff is friendly and they see us as family.
In all the rooms is airconditioning ( we had a family room with 2 bedrooms ) and the kitchen is compleet with a big cooler and a microwave.
The badroom is also compleet with a bath.
eery day the rooms are cleaned.
On top of the bilding is the breakfast so you can see nearly all of Dahab.
there is no dinner but there is a small luchcard at the pool.
Diner at the boulevare where more than 100 restaurants are waiting for you.
the price of a diner is aboute 10 euro each person complete with drinks.

We wil be back for sure

Love this place. It's very well set up, 5 mins from town, the staff are extremely conscientious and the rooms are spacious and well thought out. It has a nice pool and a roof top with pool table and panoramic views of the area. And they do the little things that make a difference well - like the time that my wife wanted an ice cream which they didn't have but one of the staff went to get one for her. The internet speed is also above average for Dahab. Thanks to Sameh and staff for all of your hospitality.

I stayed here for 4 days on my own until my partner joined me and we moved on. I would absolutely recommend 4S - the staff are lovely, very friendly, and nothing is too much trouble. If the slightest thing needs sorting out they fix it straight away with genuine helpfulness - this applies to the owner too who offered to move me to another (more expensive) room of the bath tap in my room couldn't be fixed. I loved the location, it was lovely and quiet and a very short walk from the town centre - no problem for me walking at night on my own. 4S is great value, has a lovely pool and nice simple breakfast (too much for me to eat) and the extra facilities allowing you to prepare food in your room are a real bonus. Even better is free wifi - unlike the Hilton and Le Meridien in Dahab both of whom charge ridiculous rates. Thanks to everyone who made my stay so enjoyable, especially Mohamed and Mohamed Joseph, and thank for the lovely fruit juices, flowers and cappucinos! I would stay here again like a shot, and was actually sad to leave for the 5 star Hilton.

went there due to all the great reviews. felt it was overrated - decent place BUT:
1) it is a 10min walk from city centre. it is on an edge of town, building site one side, planned-out building zone on the other. no shops/restaurants/etc. not a pretty walk, especially at night albeit not a problem per se (and taxis are 50p if yoiu need). BUT there are plenty similar style hotels on the seaside in dahab, for similar/lower price.
2) it was full of mosquitoes. maybe just a time of year, but it was impossible to be outside after sun set.
3) generally good quality but some parts look pretty cheap/starting to wear out.
4) $60 is on the higher side for similar offerings in dahab. it is either $40 for 3* or $100 for 5*

on the positive side, as mentioned: the staff is indeed very friendly and do try very hard to help. a pipe burst in our room and we were given 2 nights for free which was very nice of them indeed. rooms are very large and fairly nicely furnished (by egyptian standards)

overall, a reasonable choice, but only if you cant find anything by the seaside - you can get similar (or better quality) for the same or less $$. we certainly did.

Just the sweetest, most accommodating and helpful staff. It was VERY clean in the first place and when they CLEANED the room-- you felt it was really cleaned (something unfortunately oft unusual for Egypt!) The hotel is a short walk away from the center of town. Some nights were quite windy so it felt like something of a long walk, but isn't too bad. There are hotels directly on the seafront which surely offer better views (this hotel's surrounding area is still largely undeveloped,) but for the price we paid and the size of the studio we had, it was well worth it!
It was nice to be a bit isolated anyway from the main, busier part of town.
Tourism needs to come back to Egypt fast, it's just unlike anywhere else!

Our stay at 4s hotel has been the very best of all the places we have been staying during our travel through the Middle East. The staff was friendly and we really felt welcomed. The appartment was clean, spacy and comfortable. When we oppened our terracedoor we were a few steps away from the clean and spotless swimmingpool. The staff was excellent and they loved to play with the children. There was a lounge area just beneath our terrase which was lovely. Besides that there were a free table football game and dart. We would love to stay there again.

4S was booked on my behalf by a local dive company( the very good Poseidan) so wasnt sure what to expect. when i arrived it appeared small, and it is with 20 something rooms, but this adds to the charm and appeal. the room i had was a good size with twin beds, corner sofa, kitchenette, sat tv and aircon. it was very comfy and cleaned to a high standard everyday. if its a 5* hotel holiday you are after then this probably isnt for you. if however, you are looking for a base whilst on a dive trip then this would be just for you. the hotel itself may not be 5*(it doesnt pretend to be) but the service most definately is. the same 5/6 guys seem to be there 24/7. they are always very cheerful and nothing is too much trouble. it is also great value for money with very nice meals for less than £3.this was my first time in Dahab and wont be my last and i will definatley be staying at 4S's next time!

Room Tip: its a dry hotel so take own alcohol if required
