As a country that has little or no tourism, most visitors to Asmara are those travelling for business visits. As such, The Asmara Palace Hotel is probably the only good option (or rather, the best of the worst possibilities), where you would want to stay. This was an Inter-Continental many years ago, so some of the Inter-Continental equipment/logos still appear... More

I was there with colleagues December 14-19 2015. Pleasant room on 2nd floor with balcony. Very comfortable bed, Big flat screen tv. Water boiler for instant coffee or tea. Bathtub, with shower, and bidet, all enough efficient. Near the airport, not really far from downtown (lesss than half an hour walking distance or not expensive few minutes cab ride).Reasonable restaurant,... More

Hotel is very close from the airport and you can order the hotel shuttle to pick you up at the airport arrival. If you arrive night time , better to have a light jacket because the temperature is cool. Room are spacious and clean. Breakfast is enjoyable and you can take it at the terrasse . Wifi is very low....staff... More

It was rather empty except for one other Chinese man there. A nice swimming pool by my standards. Indoor and outdoor ones available. Price to get in is a couple hundred nakfa. Reasonable price for most foreigners. Restaurant decoration was nice. Buffet had cold food but ordering from the menu meant waiting around one hour. Typical in Eritrea. Wifi available... More

Be warned!!! The management of the hotel are incompetent. Make sure if you are having a late check out you understand the charges, that they won't tell you about. A colleague and I stayed for two nights and had late flight out (as most are). We asked the day before the reception what was the latest we could check out... More

Probably Asmara's best option for those looking for a reliable Place to stay during work visits. The restaurants seem to be a popular place for work dinners, and popular among the local elite. Unfortunately, it's a bit far from Asmara centre, so unless you have a car you'll have to take one of the very expensive taxis. The pools are... More

Without doubt this is the best hotel in Asmara, unfortunately, it does not have a great deal of competition. It is close to the airport and convenient and looks just like another architectural monstrosity built out of cheap materials, with poor furnishing. Notwithstanding, the rooms are comfortable enough and there is a pool and gym for the more active minded.... More

Location was is not bad. Nor from the airport in decent area of Asmara. You can easily walk to town centre from the area if you are not busy for exercise. Services are average and there are lack of enthusiasm and passion among the staff. Internet is very slow and most of the time unavailable. Better to go to Nyala... More

I have been there for 5 days. Rooms are clean and spacious. Internet is very slow in Eritrea, forget it. There is there an italian resaturant not bad but takes one hour to bring your food. Reception service are bad. They forgot to pick me from the airport and they charged me for a coffee that doesn't exist.

I spent four nights in the Asmara Palace hotel. Internet nearly never worked, I wasn't even able to send a single email through yahoo. Management says it's a "temporary provider problem" which is not true as guests complain @TA for years and internet works well in other hotels - with same provider. Staff is uninspired, phone messages at reception are... More
