This is a decent hotel in Dahab. We arranged to be picked up in Sharm el Sheik airport through the hotel and our driver was waiting for us when we got outside arrivals - so far so good! After a journey of about 50 minutes we arrived in Dahab and pulled up outside the hotel which is in the centre...

I liked this hotel a lot, it was nice and comfortable but our biggest beef was how we booked. There are two websites for this hotel, one is run by the hotel (www.sphinx-hotels-dive.com) and one is run by someone else (www.sphinxdahab.com). The second site is actually a travel agent, who will charge you more and continue to bug you about...

We arrived in Dahab and managed to get a room here after a bit of bargaining with the manager. We had a great room overlooking the swimming pool, with a fantastic view across the sea towards the Saudi coastline leading to cracking sunrises. All the staff were very helpful and accommodating, the manager was always about checking how everyone was,...

My husband and I stayed at the New Sphinx for around a week, and had a really enjoyable stay. The rooms are really nice, and there are heaps of restaurants, internet cafes etc in close proximity. The manager, Sayid, is also fantastic, and was really helpful to us during our stay. But beware the Old Sphinx - we went there...

We checked around a lot of hotels, all offering A/C, TV, private bathroom, swimming pool and free breakfast. This place has the best price, with some easy negotiation. Sayed, the reception guy, is so helpful. He called the bus company numerous times for us, helped organize tours, gave us tea, and made us really feel at ease. He even offered...

Perhaps I expected too much after reading the reviews for this place but I was pretty disappointed. Not for any major reason it has to be said, but for lots of little irritants. The fact that it took five guys 15 minutes to check us in, the fact that they don’t want to clean your room but then don’t give...

We saw many hotels in Dahab before we checked in in the New Sphinx hotel and this is for sure a really good hotel for a really good price. Very clean and big rooms with a balcony, there are two levels. Rooms at the swimmingpool and also rooms with a view overlooking the sea. Swimmingpool with lounge chairs, good location,...

We enjoyed our stay at the New Sphinx – once they had put us in the room we’d booked! I thought I’d booked direct with the hotel but this appeared not to be the case and there seemed some tension and mis-communications between our rep and the hotel staff. However it was all sorted out by day two, and apart...

We had a room by the pool, at the rear end, so it was sheltered from the wind - something vital in Dahab. We paid 250LE per day and were very happy. The manager, Siaed (spelling) was more than helpful as well. Nice clean spacious room, good English TV channels for when you want to chill out, nice pool, and...
