Ali Baba Hotel
Ranked #23 of 28 Specialty Lodging in Dahab
Reviewed June 15, 2012

The pictures on Booking.com and elsewhere must be from 20 years ago, because the property is now quite worn down and in need of serious renovation. That being said, for the money, it is a good deal, the meals alone are worth the price and Beverly, who is English, goes out of her way to assist you. For an American, mature couple, traveling on our own, it was below normal US standards, like a Scottish Inn in need of refurbishment. It is across from the Beach, not on it. AC and hot water good. You can go a bit north of here and start finding newer and nicer places, but they will likely cost you much more. If you want a base to see Mt. Sinai and snorkel and you can deal with an older place, clean but worn, you will enjoy Ali Baba.

The hotel is a small one with only 8 rooms such as the most hotel in Dahab. Good stuff and very helpful even when I asked one to come with me to a near shop for a discount he gladly did it. I got only one night and no food the room with clean with a water heater so u can make ur own tea or coffee. thought they have no beach but it reachable 1 or 2 min walking. down there they have a near supermarket where u find the most stuff u need. AC always working good the same as for the water and heated water. always u have to wash ur teeth with mineral water and some ppl would like to give their hair a wash with it as well after tab water. all the time u get free wi fi anywhere in the rooms.
hope everybody would enjoy it.

The location of the hotel was great right in the middle of Dahab, you had the views of the sea and mountains, the breakfast was very good you did not want to eat for sometime after. The staff very friendly, they arranged transport from airport and help organize trips, a good relaxing holiday. Many small shops below the hotel, gifts, pharmacy even a dressmakers at very good prices.

You can be woken buy the prayer call, but you are in egypt.

I was in Dahab for a small holiday, I spend a night at the Ali baba hotel, I was great, got a "Suite" overlooking the Red Sea and the Main Street of Dahab. The staff was very nice, specially Mohamed the reception clerk who managed to learn english within 24 hours :-) well done. Next time for sure I will see your brothers shop, but only if I can buy one of each:-) This time I was not in any need of a plastic Pyramid, a I love Dahab t-shirt or a small magnet with Tut Ankhgamon.

I had lunch in the restaurant, it was really good and good price for tourist.

I would stay at the hotel again.
