Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Ibrahim and his mother were incredibly accommodating and very enjoyable to talk to. Ibrahim knows a lot about the area and make recommendations on both places to visit and cheap ways of getting there. I would recommend this place to anyone who feels imprisoned by resorts and wants to see the best of...

As a solo backpacker, Rihana guest house was easily the best place I stayed at in my 10 day trip around Egypt. The room was clean and cozy. The atmosphere was relaxed and laid back. Every room had a balcony and large windows which allowed sunlight and sea view giving the needed beach vibe. All trips and diving packages are...

Great place. The owner really makes you feel like you are at home. I stayed here for one week total. I also dived with their dive shop affiliate. Both of them were great. Will stay here every time I go to Marsa Alam.

Our stay in Marsa Alam, Egypt was a wonderful experience thanks to Ibrahim at Rihana Guest House. Ibrahim responded immediately to our phone calls when we needed directions on the way to Marsa Alam and, when we arrived, greeted us with a beverage of our choice. Our room was spacious and we had a nice balcony with a view of...

Absolutely the most comfortable little guesthouse you can imagine just across the street from the Red Sea. Wake up to the sunrise and start the day with a sweet little breakfast before taking off for a day of diving or snorkeling. The accommodations are roomy and clean & there is a very comfy common area for meeting other guests, watching...

Lovely chatty owner Ibrahim who is very helpful with sorting out transfers to beaches and boat trips and recommendations on places to eat. Guest house was clean and comfortable, well working air conditioning, lots of Mosquitos but not a problem where they were provided. Common room was nice and cool to relax in also. Wifi available in the common room....

We stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed our time here. The rooms were clean, the shower was hot and the common area was very comfortable. There is a nice kitchen to cook in but we mostly ordered delivery from great local restaurants. There is beer and water for sale here as well. If I return to Marsa Alam in...

The super friendly owner makes it a comfortable and relaxing environment. Spacious, well maintained, very clean rooms with balconies add to the great value of this place. You can have food and just about anything else delivered, or you can walk into town for a meal. Diving or other excursions can be arranged with zero hassle or up selling. We...

Most of the reviewers speak about the owner, Ibrahim, and his open, friendly personality and willingness to share advice. I fully agree and if my review of lodging was based purely on kindness and friendliness, then Rihana would get high marks. However I feel that visitors should know what to expect when they come to Marsa Alam and to this...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rihana Guest House is nestled 100 meters from the beach, with a full ocean view. Air-conditioned 5 double bed rooms, with private baths and balconies. We are located 45 minutes from Marsa Alam International airport, and 3 hours from Hurghada one. For divers, snorkelers and beach lovers, the property lies midway from the most famous bays on the coast. Within minutes you will be in Egla, Asalaya, and Samadai bays, where pristine crystal waters exist, and diving & snorkeling are at their best. We are not an all inclusive resort; in fact we are totally the opposite. Our guests can enjoy walking to the town, where they can eat at local restaurants, chill at cafes, or even cook at home. You can enjoy chilling at the main lounge, get to know new people, and share experiences. In other words, we are the epitome of the small, intimate guest house, in a traditional style where you feel home. We will help you organize all your diving packages with our diving partners, airport transfers, and all other activities you can think of. ... more   less

“All rooms have a balcony with sea view; the one drawback is the (loud!) prayer call from the nearby mosque at 5 AM; bring earplugs :)”
