Stayed here in November 2012 with a group of friends. The rooms were cheap and the only thing we could find at the last minute. Rooms are basic but comfortable. I stayed in a room with my boyfriend and was annoyed to find that the bathroom walls did not go up to the ceiling. Awkward! We had selected a room...

Tried this place out for one night, based on a friend's recommendation, and then decided to stay here for my entire stay in Dahab! The rooms are very simple, but comfortable and extremely clean. The staff is wonderful, very helpful and welcoming. I felt very safe here. The hotel is about 5 minutes from the beach and the main 'strip'....

From start to finish, everything went smoothly. The family run hotel is situated just outside the busy part of Dahab, only a 5 minute walk to the restaurants & shops .

Johwara hotel and diving with i-dive - a really good combination. We stayed there for a week. Simply dive. Rooms are clean, there is enough space for the equipment. Good place in the centre of Dahab, just 2 minutes to walk to the beach. Shops all around. Hotel is owned by a bedouin family. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast.

Very friendly and really great service. The hotels standard isn't great, but it's very cheap instead. The great personell is it's biggest advantage, and a nice scuba diving centre also. We had some moskitos and ants, but the fridge, toilet and AC worked fine.

Hi Per, first of all I have to say as a hotel we have never been called cheap before, good value for money yes but cheap no. As a hotel we never sell our self as anything other than a small friendly family run hotel so i am not sure where you got your information from if you thought it...

Jowhara is not directly at the beach but it's just a few meters to the seaside walkway. Rooms are basic but clean and safe. Staff are very friendly an helpful. Free wifi. Altogether Jowhara is an excellent choice if you look for a good value accomodation in Dahab.

For this price i guess it's a good hotel. Only I hate to have big cockroaches in my room so i'll gladly pay some extra to have a clean and fresh room everyday. Breakfast is fine. Not too luxureous as well. I guess it's value for money!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small, friendly Bedouin-run hotel in the centre of Dahab. Although we are centrally based you will find us tucked away like a secret garden and very quiet and peaceful. All rooms are very clean and comfortable and many people who come for a night end up staying a month due to the tranquility of the place. ... more   less
