“Good value, small family run hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

After being in Sharm for two weeks, we were a little doubtful on arrival. The Hotel looked rather run down....electric lime green suite in the foyer, but we were soon put at ease. The owner and his sons are lovely people and the rooms were very basic, but very clean. Although we were only staying one night we were provided with three bath towells and 3 beach towells...as they had put us in a triple room. Free wifi, hot water, and an owner who obviously cared abut his guests. We ate at The Shark Restuarant along the front, which we thought was excellent value for money. Later in our holiday, while we were in Jordan, we met a couple who had spent two weeks at the Hotel. We were staying in the same hotel in Jordan as them.

Just stayed 2 nights as having a long hol in Sharm at moment and a bit fed up of all inclusive culture. Very clean and comfortable beds,hot water for shower. The 'boys' will make you breakfast from a choice of 4,can recommend the egyptian ones.Somehow this hotel although not perfect as there is some (unintrusive) refurbishment going on makes you feel that you Are at home and relaxed.This is all down to Emad the owner who is a great man, in fact when we were out shopping in Dahab the locals,when they knew where we were staying said not a great/good man- he is an amazing man!
Emad - thankyou for our short but sweet stay.

This offers very good value for a budget hotel. The room was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel is a bit run down like all the buildings in central Dahab. They offered complimentary water and free wi-fi and there was a choice of breakfasts. The owner was friendly and helpful and even escorted me to the local restaurants where they offered me 20% discount as I was staying at the Dahab Plaza. I will probable stay again next time I go to Dahab as it is such good value and near to the dive centres.

Stayed here for one night while visiting Dahab. I think the owners son son welcomed at the hotel... very pleasent boy. We felt welcome from the moment we stepped inside.
Although this hotel may not look te best, our room was spotless and smelt lovely. Clean bed sheets, clean towels so as had no complaints there at all. This hotel is very cheap. To the people expecting a 5 star hotel, you are not paying a 5 star price! The hotel has all you need for a cheap an comfortable stay. Close by Is the beach front so it is well situated too.
Hopefully will be able to visit again soon and I would book this hotel again.

I stayed for 6 weeks December 2012 to January 2013; a return visit following one of the same duration 3 years ago. Emad the owner really cares about his guests and offer his advice on life and choices in Dahab. This is a centrally located budget hotel with free wifi , a free two day turnaround laundry service, with free water and toillet paper on request. You ask on the day to have your room cleaned, sheets and towels changed at any interval that suits you. There is constant hot water effective toilets, showers that are oddly situated thanks to the vagaries of Egyptian plumbers in some rooms. The beds are comfortable and there is air conditioning but on some cool nights I had difficulty getting it to blow warm rather than cold air at me. Breakfast included in the price used to be ideal, by arrangement at Fresh Fish on the beach; this time it was provided in an alcove by the pool which while I was there was only used to lounge around and the menu was restricted to a few selections and the standard not very good. Emad wasn't around very often but assured me that the boys would make what I asked. Unfortunately on some days the ones with good enough English weren't around and even ordering from the menu was difficult. Most of the time it was quiet at night and the small TV had four English language channels but 3 were movies with Arabic subtitles and the 4th Euronews with only snow based sports news plus football scores of top three teams in European leagues. Churchill Bar and Yallah Bar on the promenade and others showed football but did not show match details outside like they used to.
In my last week in the name of maintenance chunks were hammered from the walls in all daylight hours and scattered in the courtyard
In the last week I became ill couldn't sleep it off and in the morning in Emad's absence I had to ask four of the boys to get a doctor to visit. Finally one of them rang Emad in Cairo. He organised a doctor who came within 20 minutes and drove me to the Specialist Hospital where Emad visited me three times bringing my standard medication from the hotel when requested.
If you have any problems in Dahab Emad will sort them and seems to know everyone

Room Tip: THere is little difference

I enjoyed staying in this hotel and felt very welcomed and comfortable from when I first entered. The owner helped me with numerous questions and woke up himself in the middle of the night to wait with me for my onward travel arrangement. This is definitely a great economical option for a convenient stay in lovely Dahab.

The Dahab Plaza Hotel has excelled once again. As always one is taken in as a family member. Emad is fantastic and makes sure your feel at home. The Dahab Plaza is well situated and very well priced. It is a short walk to the middle of Dahab where there is wide choice of restaurants. When in Dahb choose the Dahab Plaza you can`t go wrong.
