I came to Dahab for diving. And my diving agency settled me to this hotel as it located not far from dive sites.
Its location is the only plus of this hotel.
Everything in this hotel is like ruins:
old shabby buildings, wires protrude from the walls, turbid water in pool, tumbling down furniture in the room and outside, not working fridge, noisy industry air conditioner, broken shower with salt water, absence of toilet paper, plane layer of dust everywhere in the room and falling from ceiling to bed plaster and etc.
Windows can't be fully closed in the room, so you can hear chattering from the yard all the night. Don't forget earplug.
Breakfast was poor and same everyday with withered sausages, cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers.
The room was never cleaned up during this week.
The real price I was told in this hotel is $30 for a room per night.
The hotel looks like its price.
