My wife and I booked this hotel online, just a few hours before we booked in on the 28th August 2013. I was not impressed. The hotel has been voted number one in Dehab,if it really is number one, the rest of the hotels must be pretty poor standard! I paid 462egyptian pounds for the room, about 45 english pounds. I have to be perfectly honest and say first of all that the staff were extremely helpful, especially Beverley. I was informed on arrival that I had been upgraded to a room with a balcony room 2007. I was not impressed by the view. Allthough the room was spotless clean, it was a twin, and we had wanted a double! The room was quite small, and the bathroom was tiny, so small that when you sat on the toilet you had to squeeze between the wash hand basin and the loo itself,once seated your legs were under the wash hand basin. We went out for a walk and found the streets and shops of Dahab full of dirt and litter everywhere!!
We decided to leave Dahab the following morning.We got up for breakfast and found that we had to eat in the outside restaraunt, there were cats everywhere,one jumped on the table to join the dozens of flies that were buzzing around us. I asked would it be possible to have breakfast in the indoor restaraunt, and were shown inside. It was like an oven there was no Air conditioning, the heat was really unbearable. so my wife and I left without our breakfast, and went back to Sharm el sheikh immediately.In my opinion this hotel is vastly over rated, and also over priced. We didnt get to sample the food, so I can only comment on the room and service.
