Location Information

Sharm El Shiekh is the closest airport and we can organise a taxi transfer from the Airport to the Guest House for 210 egyptian pounds.

Dahab has its own bus station with buses arriving regularly from Sharm El Sheikh, Cairo, Taba and Nuwebia. Buses are around 20le, from Sharm El Sheikh to Dahab. The bus station in both towns is not close to the airport or the town centre so additional taxi's are required to reach these areas. From Dahab bus station to our guest house a taxi is 10 egyptian pounds. From Sharm El Sheikh Airport to the Sharm El Sheikh bus station a taxi is about 40le.

We are able to organize transportation for our guests from anywhere in Sinai, contact us for detailed information or quotation for your journey.

Once in Dahab we are at the northern end of the beach promenade 5 minutes walk from Dahabs lighthouse area, less than one minute walk heading north from the Eel Garden Dive Site entry point.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed there for two weeks. The location is really great! On the quiet north side but just 5min walk from all those shops and restaurants.
We had the budget room with the sea view. It was very basic, only bed and a dusty and smelly wardrobe. We shared the bathroom with two other rooms on our floor and that was fine most of the time. There was a problem with water, one day there was no water for whole day!
The place is nice but it seems like the owner doesn't care much about the budget rooms. For eg. our bed collapsed one night because of the pathetic constuction of it. It wouldn't take much money to make it right...
But I noticed that nobody works there if it's not absolutely necessary.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Really had a good time there. Management team gave me everything I wanted, any problem solved. Size of room great value for money, very very basic, you are paying for what you are getting hence the very cheap price. Couples should go for the AC rooms downstairs. Restaurants setting was great, food quality 8 out of 10 for egypt as I did not get the Pharoas curse. Time food took needs to improve but management knows this and are working on the problem. A really poor review was previously posted about this place which I think was unfair as these are really honest and pleasent people who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and give you invaluable advice about Dahab and trips around. I would definitly go back.
